Hard Times Real Beef Jerky
"A Toothpick in every pack"
Yep, and there sure was a toothpick in my pack, as you can see from the picture. Pretty average jerky. Kind of peppery, a very slight smoky flavor. Really mediocre. As I was trying the jerky, I really wanted to like it. The consistency is awesome, and like the packaging says it's sliced meat, not the pressed stuff that passes for jerky these days. But no matter how hard I tried I could not find anything to make this jerky stand out in taste. It just does not have enough flavor. It's not bad, just average. I'd buy this before I buy any of the national brands that are available at every store in America, but I just wish they would add a little more flavor to it. I bought this for $5.50 for a 2.5 ounce bag at the Beef Jerky Emporium, but the jerky is available at their website, hardtimesbeefjerky.com. The problem with their website ordering system is that if you order from them you got to buy a lot of their product, at least 24- 1 ounce packages or 12- 2.5 ounce packages. Too much for me. Again average jerky that I wish had a little more flavor.
