Something Different - Beef Jerky


#1

Hey guys,

there are so many game KS projects its time for something different.
Also the creators name is Dan Ford! I actually only did notice that because the creator messaged me and asked if my KS name is my real name.
My only reason to back it was on a whim, because in Germany we don’t have beef jerky and I wanted to try it… no idea what I am getting myself into here.

Anyway take a look and maybe its something for you:

well, being a native Texan, beef jerky is pretty common place here… in fact, i think during your first 2 years of school, children are fed this almost exclusively during lunch… :meat_on_bone:

having said that, i’ve never tried Australian beef jerky, and am genuinely intrigued… please provide an accurate critique when it arrives! :smile:

have tried it and it was awful. then again in not American and found it in my local tesco (engerlayend)

I quite liked it when I found it in my local Tesco… and so did my dog. :wink:

I’ve got to say I liked it when I had it, assuming my memory’s serving me correctly. Also found in my local Tesco…@SteveAdamo and @Geoffers747 you haven’t gone and gotten Tesco to sponsor this forum to afford your dream beach house have you?

That’s Fresh & Easy to our American kin (at least it was until Tesco sold it off) - I used to work for them and trust me, I would defend this place until my death to prevent them from involving themselves here.

Don’t worry, Steve’s washboard abs are helping us on our way to that dream.

Oh hi!

I completely forgot about giving an update.

For one thing let me first say that for a Kickstarter this one was delayed by only about a month or two, which is rare for a Kickstarter project.

The packaging looks really well done and the beef jerky was perfectly isolated.

Naturally I cannot give a comparison as this was my first beef jerky I ever had.
I don’t rue backing it at all as now I know what to expect from this kind of snack, which was what this was all about.

So about the taste - my wife disregarded it with the comment “meh - dog food”, but I do not agree with that at all. It was of a very salty and yet sweet consistence and was quite a neat chewing experience. The best thing was probably having a new kind of taste, but if I had something like this available in such a good quality (I assume its good in comparison… maybe an expert has compared it?) I would buy it regularly. Ordering regularly from Australia would be just silly though and also its not beating other kinds of snacks so much that I would go out of my way just to get beef jerky.

Welp… it was an interesting experience, sorry that I forgot this thread.

well, thanks for the early morning (and certainly unexpected) culinary review! :smile:

sort of odd to live vicariously through someone else’s jerky experience… but it was almost as good as sampling it myself! :wink:
