We Love Jerky!

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.
