"Honey Glazed Sweet Heat Decadence'
Did you know Jeff had some famous 'Real Bacon Jerky' that is"Honey Glazed Sriracha Style Black Pepper" flavored ? My friend, Frank that I have know since my teenage years gifted me a package of this jerky to celebrate my 'Big Fat Birthday Month of Celebration". Frank knows what I like. We are excited to try this bacon jerky.
I really hated to do this; but, I read the ingredient list. There is good and not so good. Bacon is the first listed ingredient. We are getting real bacon today. Sriracha sauce, honey and black pepper are other ingredients that I like. There is a whole slew of preservatives, nitrates and such that may be necessary evils to preserve this product. Finally, one ingredient that always makes my stomach turn a little somersault: "smoke flavoring". The real test and million dollar question is how does it taste?
My first impressions are of honey, black pepper and a very slight Sriracha hit. The jerky finishes with a wonderful mouth feel of bacon lusciousness. We are eating real bacon here. It is not chewy and semi tough like traditional jerky. The texture is soft but enjoyable. It is enjoyable because of all the flavor combinations listed above. They are harmonious and desirable. Sweet, savory (pepper & Sriracha) and most of all the fat in bacon love that I adore. There is a very slight hint of smoke that compliments this flavor package.. This product needs no refrigeration. I may have to carry a package on my person at all times. Thankyou Frank
