It is with a heavy heart that I tell you my Jurassic Jerky is no more.
It was a delicious Valentine’s Day present while it lasted…and it lasted longer than I’d have expected, what with how positively delicious it was. The primary reason it lasted a couple of days is that it is not only delicious…but also ungodly hot, with a heat that sticks with you, burning the inside of your mouth for easily ten to fifteen minutes after you’ve finished what you were eating. That makes sense when you read that this particular jerky is seasoned with ghost pepper, habanero, and Carolina reaper.
That last bit is exacerbated by the fact that, like all jerky, it tends to get stuck between your teeth. This provides a sort of timed-release quality.
The bag pictured on the company website definitely indicates a greater quantity of jerky inside the packaging (there were two moderately large strips in my pouch)…but it is tasty enough that I would consider buying more for myself. I also want to try some of the other flavors.
My 16-year-old daughter liked it too.
