Tester #1: Patrick Vuong
Overall: As much as I love Japanese food, I'm not fond of teriyaki in my jerky. But this snack from Sweetwood is what good ol' American jerky should feel like. It's soft to the touch, chewy in the mouth, and tasty on the tongue. The only drawback? It has 640 mg of sodium, almost a third of the recommended daily intake, in one small serving. Of course, if the world's gone to pot, that won't matter much.
Tester #2: John Schwartze
Overall: This is definitely traditional jerky. Bite-size pieces with a great flavor and just a touch of spice. A 1-ounce serving has 27 percent of your sodium intake, though, so if you have high blood pressure you probably want to avoid this one. But if water retention is a goal, you're in luck. I'm not sure I'd care about all natural stuff in a desperate situation, but I can understand its importance as just a healthy snack.
Tester #3: Martin Anders
Overall: This jerky is delicious, and I'm not even a fan of teriyaki. Teriyaki seems to be a very popular flavor for jerky. As the flavor calls for, this jerky is doused in the sweet and salty teriyaki flavor that you long for. The texture is tender and easy on the teeth. This one is probably my favorite in this buyer's guide.
Notes: This handcrafted, sweet teriyaki-flavored Sweetwood Cattle Company beef jerky is made in small batches of all natural ingredients. It is free of nitrates and has no added MSG.
