Liberty Jerky - Teriyaki Flavor


Liberty Jerky - Teriyaki Flavor

Grade: B


Finally, I return with more jerky reviews. It's been hectic around the Abitaman household, but I'm going to try to keep the jerky reviews coming on a semi-regular basis and to start off the new batch of jerky reviews let's look at Liberty Jerky - Teriyaki flavor. I found this jerky to be quit good, when you first bite into the jerky you can definitely tell it uses a soy sauce/teriyaki based marinade. The soy sauce/teriyaki flavor is the first thing you taste then there's a spiciness to the jerky. The spiciness isn't mouth burning hot, but you can definitely feel the heat. The other flavors of the jerky mixed well with the teriyaki and heat and made for a good jerky. There are other spices mixed into the jerky which gives the jerky a nice flavor while you are chewing it. I want to note that the soy sauce/teriyaki flavor does not overpower the other spices of the jerky.

The texture of the jerky is on the dryish side just like I like my jerky and once you start chewing on the jerky it moistens up and makes for a great chew. This is the type of jerky you really can't go wrong with.

You can order this jerky and Liberty Jerky's other flavors from their website, www.libertyjerky.com . The prices are $5.99 for 3.5 ounces and $10.99 for 7 ounces, and the shipping was reasonable. This was a good jerky to start my reviews up again, and I'll definitely be buying this jerky again!

At What Point Is It Too Much?

I love Pappy Kershenstine's jerky. I've loved the jerky since I was a teen, many years ago. It was always my "must get" item when I went to stores that sold the stuff. But in the last few months this trend has stopped. Why? Because of the price increase. Kershenstine used to sell their jerky for anywhere between $2.39 to $2.99 for 1.2 ounces. Now the price has jumped to anywhere between $4.25 to over $5.00 for the same 1.2 ounces! That breaks down to at least $56 a pound if not more! Now, I pick up a bag much less frequently. Are they out pricing themselves? I think so. No matter how much I love their jerky, I've been thinking twice about picking up a bag and spending close to $5 for 1.2 ounces. What is everyone's opinion about this?

Cheap Rip Off

Because I'm so full of ideas and was looking to do a different type of review/food/product site, I decided to open up:

www.cheapripoff.com

While Beef Jerky Land will focus on reviews of Beef Jerky (something that I'm way behind on!), www.cheapripoff.com will offer a different type of review. On the site I will put up a well known name brand product up against their cheap rip off brand (hence, the name cheap rip off). It's up now, and in the first battle it's the Beef Ravioli Challenge, which will win, go to www.cheapripoff.com to find out!

And if you're looking for individual reviews, don't forget www.abitamanreviews.com!


One more thing: I promise to add more jerky reviews soon!
