What to eat while traveling on Passover

Driving somewhere with you family? Flying to a destination? Taking a day trip? 

Ever felt like there were just no Kosher-for-Passover snacks that quite satisfied hunger and tasted good (let alone were nutritious!)? 

It can be hard already during the year, but Passover is especially difficult finding the right snacks! Many snacks are too salty (like chips) or just sugary (like macaroons). Those might taste good to kids, but now that I've grown up a little, those sure don't feel to satisfying to me anymore! 

Of course, part of the issue is that on Passover you can't really stop at any stores while travelling (unless you're in New York!) because there isn't any Kosher for Passover items available at standard stores. So the snack has to be something which can be stored. 

Luckily, this year we hope we can help with not just an option, but an incredible solution!

If you're looking for a great snack this holiday, Joburg Kosher's beef biltong is now available for Passover!

Here's what you need to know about our Biltong:

  1. It's the South African version of beef jerky
  2. It's premium shoulder beef which is tumbled in spices for days, and then authentically dried.
  3. It therefore has 1/3 of the salt of regular beef jerky, and nothing unnatural - amazingly, its HEALTHY!
  4. It's packed with protein, so it can energize you anywhere
  5. It needs NO refrigeration - can be taken from a snowstorm to a dessert!
  6. Its delicious - most people who try biltong never go back to regular beef jerky

We're thrilled to let people have this incredible snack for Passover!

 

The last day to order online is April, 7th 2014!

Biltong on Duck Dynasty!

"it's on like biltong!" was the catch phrase of the October 9th, 2013 episode of A&E's Duck Dynasty entitled "Jerky Boys."

 

If you haven't seen the episode, Willie (the CEO of Duck Commander) gets a special package imported from South Africa. Inside it is delicious biltong, which his subordinates/friends sniff from the other room immediately. Having eaten up their piles of beef jerky already, they can't wait to try biltong, but Willie refuses. As usual, hilarity ensues, and Willie repeats the word "biltong" for about a minute straight in different voices - indeed, it is a fun word to say. 

 

Curious how biltong compares to beef jerky? They are simmilar in that they are both protein-packed portable snacks. However, biltong is made in the authentic South African tradition of air drying. This means it is tremendously more healthy than the salt-laden beef jerky. Instead of high salt, you get strong beef flavor, instead of additives and sugars, you get natural spices that come out with each bite. 

 

After seeing Willie's biltong, we've had tons of Duck Dynasty fans reach out to us and try biltong for the first time. Many are switching from their beef jerky habits to the gourmet, wholesome flavor of Joburg Kosher's biltong. 

 

You too, don't have to wait for Willie to share with you! Join your fellow Duck Dynasty fans and get your biltong samples today! For a limited time, enter code "Duck" for 10% off your order.
