The Krave difference
Jerky has often been overlooked by health-focused people due to the myth that it’s a junk food. But the reality is that some of today’s jerky is healthier than ever, and the reason is due to how it’s being made. Options like this Black Cherry Barbecue Pork Jerky are perfect for those who are health conscious.

Instead, Krave focuses on using all-natural cuts of meat and then marinating them in the best ingredients possible for 48 hours to deliver a tasty, moist jerky. Ingredients are minimal and include things like natural black cherry syrup, sea salt, molasses, garlic powder, and tomato paste. That’s it!
The surprising benefits of jerky
Black Cherry Barbecue Pork Jerky by Krave isn’t just good because of the lack of harmful additives and natural, delicious flavor, but also because of the key health benefits that jerky can provide:
- High Protein – It’s recommended to get 46 to 56 grams of protein per day and luckily a single, one-ounce piece of jerky contains more than 11 grams of it. In short, jerky is a snack that helps provide high levels of protein, which can then be used to build stronger tissues and muscles throughout the body. Very few other on-the-go snacks can offer that.
- Healthy Fats – While the term “fat” gets a bad rap, the body needs fats to help promote good brain health and reduce inflammation. The key is to consume healthy fats found in meats, nuts, and natural oils, as opposed to unhealthy ones that are found in chips and sweets. Black Cherry Barbecue Pork Jerky by Krave offers an excellent source of these healthy fats. giving a big boost to dietary intake while staying healthy.
- Carbs – Jerky is also a low-carb snack. For those who are watching their carb intake or are diabetic, the low levels of carbohydrates make it a perfect bite to enjoy without having a huge impact on sugar levels.
- Other Minerals – You’ll also get plenty of other minerals when eating Black Cherry Barbecue Pork Jerky by Krave. Things like zinc, iron, and calcium are present in every serving. In all, this jerky offers plenty of nutritional value so you can feel good about this snacking option.
Along with the nutritional benefits mentioned above, there’s another key thing that Black Cherry Barbecue Pork Jerky by Krave offers: quality. It's filled with flavor and is actually moist and tender, unlike some of the tougher jerkies out there. The rich tastes of barbecue mixed with tart cherries and natural gamey flavors create a snack that is delicious as well as nutritious.
Other great jerky options
Black Cherry Barbecue Pork Jerky is only one of numerous options available from Krave. They have so many other great flavors that are sweet, spicy, complex, and definitely worth trying:

Yum Yum Yum!
Ohhhhhh soo tasty :)
The Pork Jerky-Black Cherry BBQ was delicious, It was slightly sweeter than I preferred but I did like it. The texture was not too chewy. It helped me curve my cravings with some good protein. I would recommend it and buy it again.
Great snack, hard to stop eating tho.
Very delicious, except for 1 ingredient
The Black Cherry BBQ jerky was delish. Sweet and smokey. The biggest downside is that it contains cane sugar. If it were made with alternatives (i.e. maple syrup or coconut nectar) I would be a happy camper.
This jerky is very tender,not hard to bite into like some jerky's are. There is a bit of sweetness from the black cherry bbq flavor that makes it taste great!
My favorite flavor from this brand.
Pork Jerky - Black Cherry Barbecue
Another one of my favorites!! Jerky doesn't get any better than Krave!!
Love this stuff!
The meat is very tender and the flavor is a great balance of sweet and yummy!
krave makes good jerky
I've never seen this flavor in my area so I decided to try it out, I'm glad I did! Very nice flavor, so tasty this bag didn't last very long!
Tasty BBQ flavor but not so healthy
It has a nice Barbecue flavor but I was disappointed how much sugar is in a single serving. Not so much a healthy snack, more like a dessert-like treat.
I'm not even a big jerky fan, and this is wonderful.
Great Jerky. - Great taste! Moist and easily chewed. Not leather-like texture like a lot of other jerky.
My favorite flavor in this brand, and I have tried them all. Just the right amount of sweetness.
This jerky is soft, tender, and delicious. I keep a bag in my desk at work to keep hunger cravings at bay. Wonderful stuff.
This stuff is delicious. I'm not exactly a jerky connoisseur but this might be the best jerky out there.
This stuff is delicious. I'm not exactly a jerky connoisseur but this might be the best jerky out there.
Super tasty! Well balanced flavor and good texture! Not too chewy, not too hard.
My first order they were soft. The second order they were hard. When they are soft they are delicious!
Favorite Krave flavor!
I've loved all the Krave flavors I've tasted, but this one is definitely my favorite! The meat is pretty tender (in pretty much all their jerkies) and the flavor is a good combo of sweet and smoky. A really great savory taste! I like having several packs on hand for a nice protein snack - this keeps me satiated.
This is my favorite flavor of all the Krave Jerkies. I thought this size of bag was perfect, and they didn't skimp on the jerky inside!
My favorite of all the Krave flavors! Tender and tasty!
Great price. Awesome product. Little high in sodium but great source of protein! Great flavor!!
THESE ARE AWESOME
This is one of the best tasting packaged jerky I've ever had! Just a slight sweet flavor and a nice kick.
i am not a big jerky fan but this is exquisite. Tender, flavorful, excellent hints of flavors! Not tough by any means, this is an excellent quick pick me up snack! I high recommend!
Was hoping for better!
I read all these positive reviews, and was expecting the best of the best, but that was hardly the case. The flavor is mild, it has a light sweetness that comes through, but not black cherry in anyway, so don't expect that, it's more of a sweet teriyaki maybe. The flavor isn't terrible, it's just not amazing like others experienced, and I was wanting this to be that! As far as texture, it was on the tuff side, so big let down there too! Sorry, just didn't care for this one like others did.
Love this jerky!
Not your traditional jerky.
This is the best jerky I've had so far! So tender and meaty, unlike the traditional jerkys, which tend to be more dry and slimmer. Although I loved the texture and size, the sweetness was a bit overpowering. It definitely didn't stop me from eating it though. Every piece tasted better than the previous one. I must try the other flavors now.

Best jerky, best price!
Before I talk about how awesome this jerky is, I have to mention that, ounce for ounce, you won't find a cheaper place to get this jerky. Even for a discount site, it's insane how cheap it is here.
As for the jerky itself, the Krave brand is top notch, and this flavor is my favorite. It's seasoned to perfection and there's little to no gristle. It's moist and firm and satisfying to chew on; I've never gotten a bad bag. If I don't take out what I want to eat and put the rest of the bag securely away, I will end up eating the whole thing. I eat it all the time, at home, outdoors, on hikes, as a treat at work, even as a midnight snack. So flavorful, just the right combination of sweet, tangy, and savory.
I eat it on the road!
I am not a really big fan of jerky or even meat in general. I was gifted a small sample pack of Krave and I was hooked! This black cherry flavor is awesome! Now, when I go out on day trips on my bike I make a doggy bag or I'd eat the entire bag.
My only negative feedback is that I wish they can pre-portioned. It is pretty impossible to not eat a large amount of this jerky in one go. I also wish it was still sweet but just a little more spicy. I would buy this again which is really all that matters!
- April Kennedy
I was very hesitant to try this flavor because not only does it sound like a weird combination but I don't typically like BBQ. The flavors compliment each other perfectly, this quickly became my favorite flavor!
Besides for the flavor, this jerky is moist and easy to eat! Too easy, I have to portion out zip lock bags or else I'll eat the entire package in one sitting. Even when I do eat the whole pack I don't have to feel guilty because there are no artificial ingredients that I need to worry about! So good!
- Wendy Mason
Must be good
I gave it to my husband to try and it was gone before I knew it! I have to order again so I can try it now.
A Fan Forever
I rarely will even taste jerky but Krave has changed my mind. This product is not just good it is great. The quality is perfect and so tasty, I'm addicted and will be buying again.
Best Jerky EVER!
I love this Jerky! It is moist and sweet! I do not like dry jerky. The only problem.. not enough in the bag!
Good, but not my fav
Krave has really changed the way I view jerky. So far, I really like all their flavors. Their beef, turkey and pork ones are on point. This one is not my favorite flavor, but it is still meaty and satisfying. I would say this is more of a traditional jerky flavor and I find that the pork is not as tender as the beef or turkey, though it would not stop me from eating the entire bag :)
Love the taste, could out more in the bag though
I absolutely love the flavor, and the price is great compared to in stores. They don't put a lot in the bag so if you are crazy about this jerky you might need to buy 2 (or more!).
I just love this Jerky! It's so tasty, so soft and I will buy it again and again!!!
This isn't quite as tender as the other Krave jerky that I've tried but it's still a lot better than most jerky you can buy. It also has a good flavor. I wasn't sure about the black cherry part but it's actually pretty tasty.
I needed something to add protein to my husband's diet. My husband loved it, ate it up in one day, and told me to order more. I had a little bit and found it delicious. I also liked that it didn't have a lot of ingredients especially artificial ones. He says it may help him stop smoking as he plans on substituting it for his cigarettes which makes me happy---we'll see how it goes especially if he's able to make this healthier choice.
Favorite All Time Snack
My whole family loves this delicious, tender, cherry jerky. So flavorful and without all those yucky ingredients!
- Thrive User
In all fairness, this was my first time trying pork jerky, so with that said again my expectations were probably skewed, but I didn't like the texture of the meat or the sweetness of the BBQ sauce. I personally will not purchase it again, but others may LOVE it.
I recently discovered that I kind of like Jerky. So I added this to my box, wow is it good. It's tender, not too tough like a lot of other Jerky's. The flavor is so yummy, a little sweet, but later a little kick to it. My entire family loved it. I say loved, because it was gone in no time.
Black cherry is one of my favorite fruits. I like this mix of it with the bbq flavor. For some this might be a bit much on bbq flavor, but I really like it.
While it is a little pricey, I still like to buy this on a regular basis. It's a great source of protein.
- Emilie Hackler
I absolutely love this jerky. It is the best jerky I have ever eaten. It looks delicious and it tastes delicious. My wife, who doesn't normally do jerky, even loves this stuff.
The black cherry bbq flavor is absolutely delicious. I wish I could mimic this flavor for my home cooked meats or my own homemade jerky!
- Marc Shoe
Affordable and Delicious
This jerky is very tasty. I love Krave products and this is no exception. I like to munch on this while I watch tv at night and it is a much better option than anything else I could possibly eat at night.
I love the price here on Thrive too! This is such a great service. I often find products on here I can't find in store or at a better price than online or in store. This product is very affordable, and since I can't find it elsewhere I have no idea how much cheaper it is, but it is very affordable.
This Pork Jerky is fantastic! I love that it is gluten and dairy free and also dye and additive free. It is real meat for real people looking to eat a real good snack! It is really tasty and I keep a bag in my desk at work and another in my gym bag for when I just need a quick snack or pick me up. A great snack food and healthy too!
- Sean W.
This is, by far, our favorite Krave flavor. It's surprisingly delicious, and while I didn't think cherry and barbeque would play well together, they do. The jerky has the perfect mixture of chewy and tough, and it's such a treat to eat. I love that the sugar content is so low, and I honestly don't feel bad eating the entire bag because it has so much protein and is pretty low on calories.
Thrive offers this for a fantastic price too. I wasn't going to keep eating Jerky, but when I started my membership here, I found out that it's almost $4 cheaper than what I regularly pay for a bag, so it's back within my budget. Thanks Thrive!

Best jerky I've tasted
I've had quite a few styles of jerky, and while I really enjoy grass fed beef, this pork is the one.
Krave knows you don't just want pork, you want spices, sweetness and a kick and they pack this jerky with all of it. But it's the black cherry flavor that puts it over the top. This is one serious jerky that tastes like the stuff that's made on the ranch.
- Alston M.
Packed with flavor
Krave's pork jerky has a great spicy flavor with the sweetness of honey and a touch of red wine that's a fantastic combination of sweet, spicy and tart.
The meat is tender, moist and smoked, so it almost tastes as if it just came off a hot grill.
- Alex Marshall
A new great flavor!
This has got to be one of the weirdest flavors ever, but I love it. For those who want something salty, yet sweet, this is perfect. I like the pork taste on it, and the cherry adds a bit of a kick to it. These are great to eat on the go, and they definitely fill you up!
