Lone Star Western Beef Jerky

[ #12685 ]

I have been writing to just about any address I can find. Some companies have written back. Most companies are polite. Hershey's and Kraft sent back quite hostile responses---their customer relations maganers were assholes. Lone Star Western Beef sent me $40 of gratis beef jerky and a nice, handwritten note. Not only is their jerky the best I have ever had, they are nice people. :)

  • What have you been writing them?

      This was the first question that occurred to me, as well, but probably not for the same reason. (Robrt is probably merely curious. I want jerky.)

      You are what you think.
    • Given that he works as military police in Iraq, I assume he wants some free samples to hand out to the local population. Giving away the chocolate from your own ration doesn't get you that far. Just guessing here though.
  • Sitting out in an MP station, brian probably doesn't have a lot else to do than critique his food. I guess he's writing to the manufacturers of the food rations he's been eating. The Army buys a lot of civilian food these days rather than make special stuff. Cheaper, more familiar and with a long shelf life.

    Having done 10 days on dehydrated food, I can say that anything containing protein (ie. jerky) takes on a whole new taste sensation when you can get your hands on it.
