I love Pappy Kershenstine's jerky. I've loved the jerky since I was a teen, many years ago. It was always my "must get" item when I went to stores that sold the stuff. But in the last few months this trend has stopped. Why? Because of the price increase. Kershenstine used to sell their jerky for anywhere between $2.39 to $2.99 for 1.2 ounces. Now the price has jumped to anywhere between $4.25 to over $5.00 for the same 1.2 ounces! That breaks down to at least $56 a pound if not more! Now, I pick up a bag much less frequently. Are they out pricing themselves? I think so. No matter how much I love their jerky, I've been thinking twice about picking up a bag and spending close to $5 for 1.2 ounces. What is everyone's opinion about this?
