A company called Rowan Lane has invented Cherkees, which are a hybrid of beef jerky and potato chips.

This isn't jerky-flavored potato chips, or thin crispy pieces of beef jerky. They've actually blended meat and potatoes and turned them into honest-to-god jerky potato chips.

Right now they've got two flavors: Cracked pepper and hot pepper. Teriyaki and barbecue are coming soon.

These things are actually healthier than regular potato chips...they're not deep fried, they're low fat, and they have 12 grams of protein per serving.

Unfortunately, as soon as these showed up online yesterday, people FLOODED the website to buy them at $5-a-bag, and Cherkees are temporarily sold out.

You can visit the website to be put on a mailing list that will let you know when more Cherkees are available.
