    bait and switch

    purchased the crate and it did not have the advertised flavors. Also included pork peperoni. I complained and they gave me 10% off and cut ended communication.

    I had a lot of duplicates

    Excellent Jerky

    My mom likes getting my siblings and I funny advent calendars despite the fact that we're now all adults and this was the one she got me this year. I have to say, the jerky in this calendar is some of the best I've ever had. Really nice consistency to the meat and the flavors (while not all of them are things I'd normally like) were very well balanced and delicious. I do have a few critiques but comparatively they're very small ones. The individual packages are hard to open without scissors and the habanero jerky had barely any heat to it. I have a pretty middle of the road spice tolerance and wouldn't even consider it spicy. I haven't tried the ghost pepper one yet and I'm hoping that one is spicier (though I have a feeling I'll be regretting that statement). Overall, this is an excellent gift and I would absolutely buy some of the jerky flavors if they were sold individually.

    This was a gift from a friend. I honestly thought it wasn’t going to be that great. But I’ll be the first to admit this was one of the best advent calendars ever! Each piece was individually delicious and perfectly seasoned

    The only advent calendar you need. Until next year.

    A 24 day celebration of jerky. What could be better? Each selection was anticipated with unbridled glee, bright eyes, clapping hands, and not a little drool. Each morsel was savored to the fullest. To say it was life changing would be faint praise - it was David-Hasselhoff-on-a-unicorn-with-sprinkles amazing.

    One downside: It is only 24 days - which makes the other 341 rather dull and lifeless by comparison. Please bring it back this year!

    Best Advent Calendar Ever

    I bought three of these - my husband and 2 sons were so excited to get them. They were actually excited to open them every day! Thank you!

    Yummy vaca!

    It's a fun gift for an adult. It brings out the child-like anticipation of the advent, while using a more adult inspired treat. The friend I got it for has absolutely loved the fun of opening one door at a time, and he said all the meat has been moist and delicious!

    Gift that keeps giving

    I got the beef jerky for my grandson. Something different to have fun with. So far he has his favorites and of course the ones he didn't like as well but he is having fun. My only suggestion is if you need to duplicate flavors mix them up in the box then it isn't right in a row. Overall a neat idea.

    Thought I was missing some

    Like the person above me, I thought I only had 15 pieces. I tore the box open and found the tray was inserted upside down. The other 10 were still in there.

    Idea is nice, lots of repeats

    It’s a cute idea, my husband loved getting to open a piece each day. However, there were a lot of repeat flavors. We had 5 that were repeats, and it would be fine if they were spread out a bit but every repeat was in a row. For example, day 1 & 2 were the same flavor, day 12 &13 were the same flavor, etc. And that repeated 5 times throughout the advent calendar. 😕 kind of a bummer and defeats the purpose of a different flavor every day up until Christmas. The jerky did taste good though!

    Not what I was hoping for...

    I was so excited to find this because I have a fiancé that doesn’t drink, and it’s so hard to find an advent calendar without booze. However if I’m going to spend $80 on a jerky calendar then I assumed the jerky was going to be freaking amazing! My fiancé said it wasn’t the best jerky he’s had and some of it was rubbery. Then I was upset that he received double of a lot of the flavors! Seriously why was that worth $80?? I won’t be buying this again. For $80 I can make a better calendar myself.

    One kind of jerky

    I bought this for my daughter who is not a fan of chocolate, and she was so excited. However, we have now opened three days and every flavor so far has been garlic. We don't want to tear through the rest of the box to see if we have other flavors since it is an advent calendar, but I wouldn't have purchased a box of 24 garlic jerky pieces. She said they taste fine but the variety was the draw.

    Mediocre at best

    My wife got me this. I am on day 11. This company provides moist and tender jerky. However, regardless of the meat or seasoning they all taste similar. They are also very saturated to the point where they all feel oily and unremarkable. Not bad but certainly not amazing.

    3rd year buyer

    Every year when we do advent calendars my girlfriend orders me this one and it's definitely the last year. I don't know if she realized when ordering this year but it's just a bunch of dollar store pork sticks and no actual jerky. In the past the cuts have been great and I really enjoyed it but this year I couldn't be more disappointed. They more resemble dog treats than actual jerky. Never again. I'd give it 0 stars if I could. I highly recommend not throwing away $100 on this garbage when it's just $2 worth of the worst meat.

    Not Impressed

    Tons of repeats right in a row, and very small portions for the price. We ordered several advent calendars this season, and this one is our most disappointing.

    Dec 12th 2023
    Same flavors over and over

    It's the same 5 flavors repeated in order and they're tiny. It's a complete rip off for $100

    Overpriced meat sticks

    I’ve bought the jerky advent calendar for years and this year “meat sticks” were added instead of jerky. The price stayed the same but the meat is now cheap and generic tasting. Disappointing because this used to be a really cool product. Just get a stick of Tillamook jerky for a fraction of the price.

    Jerky was good

    My wife bought this for me and I was pretty excited about getting to try flavors I wouldn’t typically try. First 3 weeks had the same flavors over and over again. I wish they would have 25 different flavors of jerky. Definitely don’t get your moneys worth on this. You could buy quite a few pounds of jerky for the price.

    Now loaded with Slim Jim’s

    They’ve made some serious cutbacks on this product, which used to be my favorite run-up to Christmas. They’ve mixed in tiny pieces of beef stick instead of the incredible beef chunks/jerky that used to be behind every door. Really sad to see them cheapen this product with slim Jim’s.

    Nov 15th 2023

    $100 plus shipping for less than 7 ounces of jerky. The advent box is flimsy and the perforation on the daily doors are mostly cracked open. I would’ve rather have given my son 120 bucks. He could’ve bought a couple pounds of jerky.

    Not worth the amount you pay for.

    Totally not worth the money.
    With this being so expensive you’d assume you’d have a shareable, bigger quantity of the jerky. However it was the size of a quarter. Very ashamed.
