The Performance Enhancing Meat Snack Company (PEMS, LLC) announces the release of Perky Jerky, a caffeinated beef jerky that pairs premium strips of peppered beef with an energizing additive. Each package of Perky Jerky contains roughly the same amount of caffeine found in two cans of a popular energy drink, and the product is the first-ever energy jerky to be approved by the United States Department of Agriculture. More than three years in the making, Perky Jerky is also a healthy, low-fat snack, with 90 calories and 22 grams of protein per serving. Perky Jerky is flavored using a 100 percent natural additive derived from Guarana, a plant native to South America, and found in many energy drinks and herbal teas. www.perkyjerky.com
