Goanna Hill Chilli Pineapple ‘Jerky’

Review by  Michael Elias

Product: Goanna Hill Chilli Pineapple ‘Jerky’

Location of Manufacture: Australia

Ingredients: Pineapple, chilli sauce(chilli, sugar, vinegar, garlic, ginger, salt, acetic acid).

Review: This is a first…a jerky based without any protein component. A first for me to try and an interesting flavour and texture. As it’s a dried fruit naturally not as much chewing is involved to break it down. Whilst there is a nice amount of chilli on each portion the balance is leaning more towards the sweeter side as opposed to the salt/spice side of the equation. This is all likelihood appears to be due to the sauce having sugar in it to go with the natural sugars of the pineapple. A little too sweet for my taste buds but that’s my personal opinion. About a 1/5 on the my heat rating.

Verdict: Goanna Hill Chilli Pineapple ‘Jerky’ is a nice and sweet alternative to the typical protein based jerky’s out there, a friend for all the vegans out there. It’s more of a sweet flavour with a slight hit of heat so probably suitable to those wanting mild or minimal heat in the chilli jerky experience.  My final score is 4 out of 5
