Don’t get excited. We’re talking about jerky, but not just any jerky. Our goal has always been to make the best tasting jerky in the world. And ever since we started the company in 2010, customers have shared their stories of trying desperately to hide some of their own secret stash after it arrives in the mailbox. So, I guess that is the greatest compliment, but it is also quite humorous.
At first, we thought it was a funny isolated incident, but every few months someone relays a new story to us. Sometimes it is the parents hiding it from the kids, in places where the kids almost always end up finding it, such as:
- In the master bedroom dresser drawer
- In the underwear drawer
- In a shoe box on a high shelf in the master bedroom closet
- Under the bedroom mattress
- Under the living room couch cushion so it is in easy reach when the kids aren’t around
- Behind books in the bookcase
And sometimes it is a husband, keeping a secret stash from the entire family with strategies like this:
- Shipping jerky orders to work, so no one in the family knows about it (I guess you need a secret credit card too then).
- Keeping a few bags of the tender morsels under the driver seat of the car with back up under the spare tire
- Wrapped in a T Shirt in a gym bag
- Hiding at the bottom of a golf bag
Sometimes there are stories of the mail getting opened and the kids consuming it all before Mom and Dad even get home! Should we offer unmarked packages as a shipping option? Inquiring minds want to know.
Not ready to give up stashing jerky? Discover some creative new hiding place options:
- Build a fake floor air vent with plenty of room for a six pack
