And this jerky was no exception.
Good points: Nice texture. Easily chewable without being either too
tough, or too artificial in its texture. No surprise fat or unchewable
sinew present in the meat. Nice smoke on the meat. Product is chopped up
into small, kidney-shaped pieces that are easy to manage. Its best
feature was the lack of artificial sweetness present in too many beef
jerky products today.
Bad points: Ingredients listed include paprika, garlic, mushroom and
three kinds of pepper. None are particularly identifiable in the end
product. There is heat here, but trying to identify what pepper produced
it is difficult, if not impossible. The package says "Cajun Flavor,"
however, and traditional Cajun spices are absolutely not identifiable in
this sample. I mostly tasted plain salt.
Verdict: Better than most mass-produced, store-bought beef jerky, but
the overabundance of salt combined with the lack of other flavors makes
this product average.
I received this at a discount in exchange for an honest, unbiased review. Thoughts are my own.
