What’s the Best Beef Jerky Flavor?

What’s the Best Beef Jerky Flavor?

Friends, I hope you’ll indulge me as I continue to opine about one of my favorite subjects: delicious beef jerky. While almost everyone (vegans and vegetarians excluded, of course) agrees that beef jerky is a delicious snack, there is some debate over the best beef jerky flavor. 

I’ll readily admit, there is no hard and fast answer to this question, as it comes down to personal preference. Some snackers prefer their smoked meat snacks spicy. Others opt for sweet meat treats. Many choose to let the smoked beef flavor speak for itself. And, of course, I agree with them all. However, there are components of each of these flavors that might appeal to certain people over others 

Hot & Spicy Beef Jerky Flavor

My Hot & Spicy Beef Jerky puts heat in the driver's seat and lets it slam the gas pedal to the floor. While I've never piloted a car myself, I believe the gas pedal analogy is an accurate representation of this beef jerky's true spiciness. Snackers who appreciate the wilder things in life will likely devour this jerky while only breaking a mild sweat. On the other hand, more sensitive snackers should wear breathable and moisture-wicking athletic apparel to keep the perspiration at bay and have plenty of ice water close at hand. 

Fans of my Hot & Spicy Beef Jerky are more likely to be exceptionally good looking and comfortable taking risks. These snackers are natural-born leaders who are highly sought-after as business partners, spouses, presidents, kings, and emperors.  

Teriyaki Beef Jerky Flavor

On the other end of the flavor spectrum sits my Teriyaki Beef Jerky. If you occasionally enjoy indulging your sweet tooth, this meat treat is for you. Combine my original beef jerky with soy sauce and a dash of sugar to get the same teriyaki flavor you'd enjoy at your favorite corner bento shop. The savory flavor of my smoked beef pairs so well with the sweet teriyaki that it's no wonder this is one of my most popular flavors.

Naturally empathic, teriyaki snackers are the best friend you call on first for sound advice, a shoulder to cry on, or a short-term loan. While understanding and accommodating, teriyaki lovers are by no means pushovers. Instead, they're the unbreakable rocks our world is built upon. 

Peppered Beef Jerky Flavor

While you may not expect it at first, my Peppered Beef Jerky packs a spicy wallop. Each savory chunk of lean beef is coated with a healthy serving of cracked black pepper that creates a flavor explosion you won't soon forget. This peppered heat is more subtle than my Hot & Spicy flavor but certainly formidable in its own right.

Peppered beef jerky lovers are a special group. Highly intelligent, these snackers can quickly spot the difference between a cheap imitator and the real deal. You'd be smart to follow their lead because they'll never steer you wrong.  

Old Fashioned Beef Jerky Flavor

This is the flavor all others are built on. With a satisfying smoked taste and just a touch of sweetness, my Old Fashioned Beef Jerky is a certified crowd-pleaser. Tender and tasty, this is truly the world's best beef jerky.

Old Fashioned lovers know a good thing when they see it. From classic cars to classic movies, they're drawn to those things that stand the test of time. This doesn't mean they're stuck in the past, however. While they understand the world is always moving forward, they just make sure to bring the best parts of the past along with them.

Which Beef Jerky Flavors Speak to You?

Like a proud father with his children, I love all my dried meat snacks equally. So I could never choose the best beef jerky flavor. Teriyaki, Peppered, Old Fashioned, and Hot & Spicy each offer something unique. So, I encourage beef jerky lovers everywhere to sample them all and select your own favorite. No matter which flavor you choose, you'll get a delicious and satisfying snack. And that's all that really matters.
