Yeah but in some parts of Europe they have sausages which are dried like jerky (kind of like Slim Jims).1
I am also legit curious now!1
Oh we have them in Australia (Melbourne) i enjoy eating the ones at the Asian grocers as they put some type of spices on it and sprinkled chilli flakes on the top. Costco sells them to and they aren't that bad either1
I wouldn't be surprised.1
We have it here in NZ but it's only one brand as far as I've seen.1
that is true1
I've never tasted it and don't want to really1
Very true. I didn't have beef jerky until I moved here lol.1
No it's made in a lot of places lol1
Beef jerky is actually really common in Asia. My fav beef jerky are the ones from Asia.1

Yes its true1

Egyptians created the first known form of Jerky, though it was made from diseased camels. It was called Humpakaka, and it's still in use today, though only fed to mongoloids and Jehovah's Waitresses.1
Only place where I've heard of beef jerky was in Chrono Trigger, and that was a video game from 1994.1
Define "very common".
Here in Slovakia you can probably get it in convenience stores if you really want to.
But no, it isn't a common snack.
It is more of an overpriced western "treat" you buy when you maybe want to try it out.
Potato chips and candy bars like Twix/Snickers is probably the most common kind of snack people would have here.1
I see it here on the shelves in Australia, especially as a snack food in petrol stations.
It is usually the South African version, called biltong, which is spiced and much more interesting than US style jerky.1
I don't know but I love it. I make my own.1
We do have something similar to that. Between Latina and Rome Though, not all over Italy. We call them "coppiette".1
I have heard about that, would not surprise me if it's true.1
No you can buy freely in UK1
I think so, I've only ever seenit here in the UK once, in the American food section in TESCO XD1
I've seen packets of Beef Jerky in shops everywhere in the UK.1
Yeah probably because when I went to Mexico they really didn't have it in any stores1
Europeans are more likely to eat Owl or Reindeer jerkies.
In Africa Pygmy Goat jerky is common.
In Chine one can buy several varieties of cat or dog for drying meat.0
