On occasion, I snap up a package of jerky. It's a fair protein source, though, with the amount of sodium contained in the product, well, it's a borderline healthier choice than chips, donuts and other crap.
But today something caught my eye that I instantly knew I had to try.
OBERTO "All Natural Applewood Smoked Bacon Jerky."
Now as you or I both know, most of the time when someone tries to make something like something else, they tend to fail miserably. Hence, when I buy something that's "like cotton candy," I hold my breath so I'm not extremely disappointed by their bullshit marketing.
"Made with 100% real bacon."
And with this product, the catch-phrase that I've been seeing a lot of these days, Applewood Smoked, was in the title. And I'm thinking, sure, if you say so. Maybe it was your starting point, but what did you do to it Oberto?
"High in Protein."
Over the years I've tried various packaged bacon that wasn't actually like the bacon we buy in the store. I've tried frozen bacon (Meh!), pre-cooked bacon (Meh!) and even vegetarian attempts at soy-based bacon. (Especially meh!) And even restaurants like Anne's in Menlo Park here sort of gets it right. Many eateries never quite hit the mark for me, so it's not that I'm singling out Anne's, it's just my latest habit.
