The next review on Aufschnitt Meats will focus on a 1.5 ounce/42 gram cracked black pepper flavored 100% grass-fed beef chicken meat stick. This flavor is described as having a perfect peppery kick. The bag was graciously submitted by the Aufschnitt Meats team.
This Aufschnitt Meats brand name is distributed by Aufschnitt Meats LLC, and they are located in Baltimore, Maryland. Aufschnitt Meats was founded by two brothers-in-law with a passion to continue their family tradition, which was started in Europe over 75 years ago. Their focus is on artisanal jerky and meat sticks made in small batches. Kosher beef and chicken are used, meaning the food is allowed for consumption under Jewish dietary guidelines. This meat stick is advertised to be all natural, low sugar, no MSG type of ingredients, and low in fat.
100% grass-fed beef is used. The chicken and beef are ethically raised, meaning no growth hormones or additional antibiotics are administered. As a result, the highest ingredient rating that can be awarded is a Very Good (9/10) rating.
This meat stick does qualify to have no sodium nitrite, or any other similar unhealthy preservatives. Instead, the main preservative used is sea salt, which is high in minerals and trace minerals. To a lesser extent, celery juice powder acts as a preservative with its naturally occurring nitrates. Admirably, there is no MSG added.
This meat stick is about 14 inches in length. There are no visible signs of fat, and this meat stick has a very soft and tender texture, being easy to chew. Handling this meat stick leaves a faint oily residue on your fingers.
The first taste detected is a mild level of black pepper. However, not the strong type of black pepper flavor that you would expect from cracked black peppers. There is almost no sweetness present, and the taste of chicken is slightly stronger than the beef flavor.
The cervelot seasoning adds a unique and interesting flavor. You could say that this cervelot seasoning tastes similar to vinegar. Both the garlic and salt are at light levels. Overall, a tasty, clean snack with a decent level of black pepper.
A 1.5 ounce/42 gram meat stick sells online for $2.49. That works out to $1.66 an ounce, which rates as a cheap price. This flavor is recommended to black pepper lovers who enjoy meat sticks with a soft texture.
This resealable plastic bag has everything imprinted on the bag itself, both on the front and back. There are no labels attached to this bag.
There is no slogan printed on this bag. Some facts printed on this bag are “Minimally Processed”, “No Artificial Ingredients”, “Gluten Free”, “Natural & Kosher”, “Premium Products”, “TRY EVERY FLAVOR! Original, Spicy, Garlic, Cracked Black Pepper, and Italian”.
This bag displays two “Glatt Kosher” logos, which implies that the meat used had a higher standard of inspection. Specifically, post slaughter, the animal lungs are examined to determine if they are smooth or defect free.
