Jimmy's beef jerky - chinatown???

I used to buy beef jerky in chinatown...i think the brand name was Jimmy's and it was imported from canada...and they used to sell it at alot of different stores in chinatown...but now i can't find it came in a small colorful box and it was thin and buttery in taste

Does anyone know where i can buy it??

  1. I haven't been able to find it for years now. I don't think it is around anymore and I have not found one that I like even half as much as that one. Oh how I miss it.

      Haven't bought any in 5 or 6 years, and it was tough getting it even back then. Last store to stock it was Kwan Lee Lung on Hill St., but they went out of business. I don't think that the place that later took over the space sells it. Nowadays I only see the stuff from Singapore and other Asian points of origin.

    2. I did a google search and it seems that the company stopped producing this product. I am going to email a friend that lives in Vancouver and ask her if she can find any for me. I so miss this beef jerky and would love to find one that is similar. I have tried so many others, but none compare.
