Tester #1: Patrick Vuong
Overall: If you've never had Asian-style jerky before, this flavor is a good place to start. It's tangy and spicy (two common combos found in jerky from China, Thailand, Vietnam, etc.) and a little bit more dry (yet still tender). I also like that you get a little bit more meat for a competitive price — and in a reusable bag.
Tester #2: John Schwartze
Overall: Nice thick strips that are very moist. Texture is a little chewy like standard jerky should be, but not tough. Lime flavor is a bit heavy-handed to the point that I feel like I should pair it with shots of tequila. It comes in a 3-ounce bag (biggest of all jerkies tested), reason enough to place this as my No. 1 pick for SHTF situations.
Tester #3: Martin Anders
Overall: This jerky is very moist and tender, but it features a lot less fire and a lot more sweetness than advertised. It does have a nice splash of lime thrown in there, however. The spiciness does shows itself, but as an aftertaste. I can eat this, but it's not my favorite.
Notes: Fusion Jerky was founded by a globe-trotting outdoor adventurer who brought her family's Asian recipes to the American mainstream when she found common high-protein snacks to be subpar while scaling Mount Kilimanjaro. This flavor promises to be the company's spiciest. Plus, it contains no nitrites, no MSG, no preservatives, and is made in Nebraska.
