Think Jerky is delicious, healthy, chef-crafted jerky from Chicago-based entrepreneur Ricky Hirsch. They only use sustainably-raised, 100% grass-fed beef or free-range turkey that have no added hormones or antibiotics. All of the ingredients are non-GMO, gluten-free and paleo friendly.
Each flavor of the protein-rich snack is a unique recipe crafted by a different celebrity Chef. The Chef-crafted recipes only use restaurant quality ingredients that you would find in any Chefs kitchen. Compared to most mass-marketed brands, Think Jerky contains about one third of the sugar and half of the salt.
We welcome you to sample & shop with Think Jerky at the Chicago Artisan Market at Morgan Manufacturing (401 N. Morgan St., Chicago) on Sunday, July 21, 2019 (10am-4pm) along with Chicago’s finest artisans in food, fashion, home goods + art.
