New Packaging finally came in!

After many months of trying to get the design finalized and into production, we finally received our new packaging for the small bags. Be sure to stay on the lookout for it!


Store sampling = store sellout

This past weekend, Gina did a in-store sampling at Safeway in Waimalu. Within two hours they were completely out of stock! If you haven’t tried our crispy beef and pork jerky yet, come check out our shop in Sand Island where you can sample every flavor.

This may quite possibly be the lowest carb jerky on the market. Our Kalua Pig has just 1g carbs per 90 calories. Both small (1.25oz) and large (2.5oz) bags of Kalua Pig and Korean BBQ will be available to purchase online and we will begin rolling out at select retailers next month as well. If you cant wait till then to get this crispy pork jerky that eats like a chip, come on down to our Sand Island facility and try out the samples.

We’ve added another four locations where you can get the most delicious, crispy beef jerky in existence! DE.HI is now being sold at all four of the commissaries on Oahu (Schofield, Hickam, Pearl Harbor, and K-Bay). Be sure to look for it in the “Hawaii” section!


Don Don Don-ki

The latest place to find DE.HI crispy jerky??  All three Don Quijote stores on Oahu.  They will be carrying all four flavors of our beef jerky line in both sizes.  


Mahalo Nui

A huge mahalo to everyone that braved the crowds to pick up some crispy jerky at our booth!  This year we only sold out of three flavors instead of everything.  Our Eland (African antelope from Niihau) crispy jerky received a great response and gives us something to look forward to in regards to expanding our lines.

Get your Nom Nom on!

We are excited to announce that we should be in all of the Hele Gas station Nom Nom stores by the end of next week, 8/17!  Be sure to check the "where to find us" tab to find the most convenient location. 


DE.HI 24/7

Whether you wake up with your stomach growling in the middle of the night, or just want something that will be easier on your stomach the next day than Jacks will at 3am, now you can get your Chiyaki fix on anytime!  By the end of this week, you should be able to find our 2.5oz bags in your nearest Safeway throughout the state.  They are currently carrying Chiyaki and Pepper, so if you dying for some hauna garlic breath or some spicy big bags, you still gotta drag your okole to Sand Island and get it at our shop (though Aloha Gas has the smaller bags of those two flavors).


Another reason to go with DE.HI

A new study published in Molecular Psychiatry found a strong link between nitrates and psychiatric disorders.  The study found that people that ate jerky, cured meats, and hot dogs with nitrates were three and a half more likely to be hospitalized with a manic disorder.  At DE.HI all of our jerky is nitrate free.  So why do many meat snacks contain nitrates?

Nitrates are used as a preservative to fend off bacteria that grow due to moisture.  Bacteria need four things to grow: moisture, protein, a non-acidic environment, and oxygen.  Most jerky tries to have some moisture, meaning it has three of the key ingredients for bacteria to grow, the bags are usually flushed with nitrogen to eliminate oxygen as best as possible.  However with moisture at that level, an added precaution is taken with the addition of nitrates.

DE.HI crispy jerky by contrast tries to get rid of as much moisture as possible.  This is part of what makes our products crispy, but at the same time, having nearly no moisture in our jerky gives us the ability to be additive free while still maintaining a level of protection against bacterial growth. 

Made In Hawaii Less than a month away!!

Made in Hawaii is less than a month away! This year it will be on August 17,18, & 19th at the Neal Blaisdell.  Last year we sold out of Chiyaki by noon on Sunday, but this year we're making double the amount so we should have enough crispy jerky for everyone.  New from last year will be our Kalua Pork and Doggie Treats.

We will also have a limited run of something that no one else in the world has.  We believe that it could just be the next super food!  It will only be a very limited run, so be sure to get there early and be one of the first people in the world to try this new protein!

You have spoken, and despite what our wives may say, we listen.  Introducing crispy jerky by the case.  Since many of our customers realize that one or two bags is not nearly sufficient, we're introducing a 10% discount when you buy a case worth (in our Sand Island shop only).  And yes, you are able to mix and match flavors, just not sizes.
