Hunger doesn’t stand a chance against “Meatzilla,” a towering, three-story-high, monster-sized bag of Jack Link’s® jerky that today roared into New York City’s Meatpacking District. Spurring the epic takeover was National Jerky Day, celebrated every June 12.
The giant meat bag descended on Gansevoort Plaza this morning, dangling from an enormous crane to deliver its mighty, meaty cargo. The neighborhood was reclaimed as the “Meatsnacking District,” to the delight of jerky fans.

Just in time for the two major political parties’ national conventions, Jack Link’s® Beef Jerky has unveiled the ultimate – or ulti-meat – tribute to the year’s political race: mosaic portraits of “Barack Obameat” and “Meat Romney.” Painstakingly created by a noted mosaic artist from thousands of pieces of Jack Link’s Jerky, the two presumptive presidential candidates now join Sasquatch, the brand’s icon, in the distinct honor of having their likenesses recreated entirely from jerky. Americans can vote online for their favorite “meathead’ in this unique portrait showdown.

Tuesday, June 12, 2012 marks the inaugural National Jerky Day celebrating the rich history, immense popularity and nutritional benefits of dried meat snacks. The fourth highest-grossing sector within the overall salty snack universe, meat snacks — including jerky — outsell other popular salty snacks, including popcorn and pretzels.
“In many ways, jerky is an ideal snack. Naturally packed with protein, jerky will keep you satiated between meals; but since it’s low in fat, calories and carbs, it won’t sabotage a healthy diet,” said Jeff LeFever, director of marketing for Jack Link’s® Beef Jerky, the No. 1 U.S. meat snack brand. “Plus, jerky tastes great. There’s no snack more deserving of its own special day.”
