Review: I want to say up front that I am not a “jerky lady”. I call beef jerky “bark” because it looks like tree bark. My three kids love it. And every now and then I will have a taste of theirs, and that’s enough for a few months, then I will try it again, you know, just in case it gets better.

So I was surprised when I opened up this packet and saw decent bits of jerky! They are plump, solid and covered in flavour!! I just had to have a piece!

My biting strength isn’t going to win any prizes, but even my teeth could rip these apart. And I always thought jerky was dry (like chewing tree bark), but the Jerk Lady Original Jerky was not! Okay, it might have been my own saliva, because I was definitely drooling WHILE I was chewing, but this jerky wasn’t “been out in the desert sun for 5 years” dry!! Yippee!!

Now the flavour. Packs a punch. There is so much flavour I didn’t know what to think!! Surreal. Honestly, I was thinking “plain” jerky. But this was anything BUT plain. Right off the bat I could taste the bbq sauce and balsamic vinegar (what a great combo), then soy and worchestershire (nom nom nom). And as silly as this sounds – I wasn’t expecting that chilli hit!! I know, right? I’m an idiot. But that chilli hit was the icing on the cake (or chilli on the jerky if you want to get technical). The flavours all came together and had a party in my mouth – and it was AWESOME.

If you like beef jerky, I am telling you to TRY THIS. And as a suggestion – try it with a few mates and a few beers. Beer and some of this jerky would be nice.

For flavour give this sauce an 8/10 and for heat I give it a 5/10.
