Now it's 2021 and since 2017 we have been reviewing Halal Beef Jerky!
Beef Jerky is now the most popular snack in America, hands down.
It is so popular, Hershey's the iconic chocolate brand has entered into space through the acquisition of Krave Jerky. It's almost impossible to go to any grocery store without being inundated with jerky displays at every check out line.
Still though, many Halal consumers have yet to try it primarily due to lack of availability or general unfamiliarity.
But with savvier American-born Halal consumer's coming of age and the current landscape of snack products being limited - new players are emerging to fill the void. Beef Jerky is a hot item right now and everyone is on the lookout for choice cuts.
So which jerky should you go out and try?
Here are 3 Jerky options we think you won't want to miss.
1. Moroccan Khlii Jerky
Amazing flavor, spice, and taste. these guys know what they are doing when it comes to a high-quality product that does not compromise on quality. They are hands down the "cleanest" meat product you will find, not only among the Halal products but even among the non-halal options (if you are looking). On the flip side that high quality does mean you will pay a premium for their choice cuts and minimally processed product.
- Certified Halal
- Premium Lean Meat
- Unique Flavors and Spice
- Minimally Processed
- No Chemicals, MSG or Nitrates
Moroccan Khlii has two flavors for you to choose from.

2. Aliyans Signature Beef Jerky
Like BBQ? If so, this might be your ticket. Smoky, flavorful, with hearty pieces that are clearly from some nicer cuts of beef. This jerky is definitely a high-quality product loaded with flavor and taste. Every piece is well seasoned and is a thicker sirloin "knuckle" cut different than the average jerky. It's definitely a taste sensation you will want to try!

3. Mummified Jerky
If anyone can lay claim to being the first meat snack makers in history, it's likely the Egyptians :). If you visit our friends at MJ - you will see that there is, in fact, evidence for that.
Regardless, you want to eat, fresh, soft, flavorful jerky right? Well, Mummified Jerky does not disappoint!
First off kudos to their team for launching out the gate with FOUR Beef Jerky flavors and a Chicken Jerky as well!
Their packaging is creative and interesting, it looks like Egyptian papyrus paper with mummy hieroglyphics, pretty cool.
