Tester #1: Patrick Vuong
Overall: It’s loaded with spices: cayenne, white pepper, black pepper, jalapeños, smoked paprika. With five kinds of heat, this jerky should be a spice-lovers paradise. But it’s not that hot, and the spices seem to be used to mask how dry and tough the meat is rather than as a complementary seasoning. I’m surprised, considering how good the company’s turkey jerky is.
Tester #2: John Schwartze
Overall: Texture is definitely traditional jerky with nice thick strips. This has a sweet-and-spicy flavor, with emphasis on the spicy. To me, the other flavors it has are drowned out because of that. A serving has only 5 percent fat and 10 percent sodium, but a whopping 24 percent of protein. This was a big plus to me, but I wish the package were larger than 2 ounces. Would definitely pick this one just based on protein amount alone for survival.
Tester #3: Martin Anders
Overall: Wow, this jerky was so tough to eat that I had to chew on one piece for a few minutes before I could get it soft enough to swallow. The flavor is a little sweet, plenty of spicy, but not salty enough for me. I’ll pass on this one.
Notes: Let’s start with free roaming grass-fed beef, treat it with pineapple juice and honey, then infuse it with cayenne pepper and jalapeños along with hints of onion, pepper, and ginger. That’s what you’re getting with this soy-free, paleo-friendly jerky.
