'Cherky' is an all-new shelf-stable product from Milk Truck Cheese that puts a flavorful spin on both jerky meat and cheese snacks.

The portable snack product blends Wisconsin cheddar cheese with artisanal bacon and spicy jalapeño to provide six grams of protein. Cherky is a product that helps consumers enjoy the taste of bacon, but in a much smaller portion than they might otherwise consume it.

In response to several health reports made over the last few years, many consumers have made concerted efforts to decrease their consumption of meat on a daily basis. As a result, jerky snack alternatives are appearing on the market that are made with plant-based substitutes like fruits and vegetables, or healthier meat options like salmon.
