I eat it. I keep some around as "emergency" rations for when a sudden bout of hunger hits me. The kind I buy has 80 calories per ounce, and I've found that it takes long enough to chew and actually sticks with me for a bit afterwards that it is a pretty good way at killing a hunger attack without heading out to the local KFC instead.
I think the main problem with it is that it is pretty high in sodium. I don't care at all about my sodium intake, so this doesn't bother me. Also, I've weighed out an ounce so I know what a serving actually looks like. An once of beef jerky looks smaller than one might think. It would be easy to eat 3 or 4 servings of this stuff without really meaning to.
