The next review on Stoney Point Premium Meat Snacks will focus on an 8 ounce/227 gram bag of their Maple Pepper flavored beef jerky. This jerky was graciously submitted for review by Amanda Fowler.
Ingredients: Beef, Soy Sauce (Water, Protein Extracts from Soy Beans, Salt, Corn Syrup, Caramel Color, Potassium Sorbate), Sugar, Maple Flavor (Water, Propylene Glycol, Natural and Artificial Flavor, Caramel Color), Maple Syrup, Spices, Garlic Powder, Cultured Dextrose. Allergen Warnings: Soy
The beef used is ethically raised, meaning it is guaranteed to be free of growth hormones and additional antibiotics. The cattle have at least partial free range access to roam about and graze on grass the way nature intended. As a result, the highest ingredient rating awarded is a Very Good (9/10) rating.
The liquid marinade is comprised of a fair brand of soy sauce, maple flavor, and healthy Maple Syrup.
Some healthy ingredients added are spices and garlic powder.
The sugar level is excellent at 0 grams of sugar per 14 grams of jerky. The salt level is high at 220mg of salt per 14 grams of jerky to lose a rating. Our preference is 350mg of salt or less per 28 grams of jerky.
The oil derivative propylene glycol is used in the maple flavor to lose a rating. Artificial flavor is added to lose another rating.
This jerky qualifies to have no sodium nitrite or any other similar unhealthy preservative. Admirable, this jerky does qualify to have no MSG added.
Alright (6/10) – Ingredient Rating
STONEY POINT PREMIUM MEAT SNACKS – MAPLE PEPPER BEEF JERKY
Written by guest jerky reviewer Paul Rekker
When I open the bag, I smell soy and pepper. The jerky varies in size from small to medium to large. The jerky is sliced thin to medium in thickness, and it is quite slick. It leaves some oily residue on your fingers.
The first flavors I encounter are salt, pepper, soy, garlic, along with natural beef. I am detecting a slight maple flavor, but the strong flavour of soy pretty well masks over it. The jerky is very dark in hue, which makes me believe that this jerky was aptly soaked in the marinade. And, to its credit, the jerky is very favorable, the pepper and salt are coming through in spades, but not so much the maple flavor.
For that reason, I would be inclined to rate this flavor of jerky a 9/10, but with some power of persuasion, I could be convinced to rate it as a 10/10. Gentlemen?
Here is what Mark had to say about this Maple Pepper beef jerky flavor from Stoney Point Premium Meat Snacks: “Thanks Paul for the great taste review. I agree with everything you stated except the maple flavor. I found that the maple flavor came across fairly well. Combined with the strong salt, black pepper, and soy flavors, this flavor is the antithesis of being a boring flavor.”
“Due to COVID-19, we are down to Paul and me from the Group of Seven for this taste review. I was at a solid 10 taste rating with not a single complaint. While Paul is at a 9 rating, I feel that anything less than an Excellent (10/10) taste rating would be a disservice.”
This 8 ounce/227 gram bag of jerky sells at the Stoney Point Farm Market stores for $13.00, which rates at a pretty cheap price.
Excellent (10/10) – Taste Rating
This clear non-resealable bag has labels affixed to the front and back. The Stoney Point Premium Meat Snacks logo has two knives crossed, and pictures of a horse, elk, and wild boar heads. This bag is vacuum-sealed, the best possible way to keep jerky fresh tasting.
There is no slogan printed on this bag. The only fact printed is “Made in USA.”
The only bag categories missing are the bag not being resealable and no best before date. Commendably, a phone number is provided for customer inquiries. A small blurb is printed about Stoney Point Premium Meat Snacks.
