DS Name: Spiced Jerky
A delicacy known for its intense flavor.
The jerky of Chrono Trigger comes in two forms; the first is a ration of the Chef in 600 A.D. for the knights defending Zenan Bridge, and the second is a prized cooking item sold by the owner of the Snail Stop. Crono and the party deliver the former to the knights, assisting the effort to defend against the Mystics, while the latter is used in the Sun Stone sidequest. It is given to the needy wife of the Porre Elder for free, causing the Porre Mayor of later years to be imbued with charitable virtues. This allows the acquisition of the Sun Stone.
Jerky is supposedly King Guardia XXXIII's favorite food; he rejects it because of cholesterol concerns. In the Japanese version, he rejected it due to the outrageous spice.
