  1. Been around since circa 1550 (South America)
  2. Loses 2/3 of weight during drying
  3. Eaten by astronauts in outer space since 1996
  4. Enjoyed in Rome with wine
  5. $2.5 billion a year in product sales (WOW !!!!  guess that’s why we see so many different brands of jerky for sale everywhere)
