The next review on Stoney Point Premium Meat Snacks will focus on an 8 ounce/227 gram bag of their Sweet and Hot flavored beef jerky. This jerky was kindly submitted for review by Amanda Fowler.
Ingredients: Beef, Soy Sauce (Water, Protein Extracts from Soy Beans, Salt, Corn Syrup, Caramel Color, Potassium Sorbate), Sugar, Smoke Flavor (Liquid), 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 and liquid smoke.
Some healthy ingredients added are spices and garlic powder.
The sugar level is great at 0 grams of sugar per 28 grams of jerky. The salt level is high at 430mg of salt per 28 grams of jerky to lose a rating. Our preference is 350mg of salt or less per 28 grams of jerky.
This jerky qualifies to have no sodium nitrite or any other similar unhealthy preservative. Admirable, this jerky does qualify to have no MSG added.
Good (8/10) – Ingredient Rating
STONEY POINT PREMIUM MEAT SNACKS – SWEET AND HOT BEEF JERKY
Written by guest jerky reviewer Paul Rekker
When I open the bag I smell juice, maybe pineapple juice. The pieces are generally medium in size and are cut to a medium thickness. The jerky is somewhat hard and chewy, just the way our forefathers intended. The jerky is quite dark in hue, which, to me, indicates a fair amount of marinade has absorbed into the jerky strips. There is also a noticeable amount of oily residue left on the jerky.
When I bite into the jerky I am met with a very pleasurable flavor. It is quite good. I taste salt, pepper, both at solid levels, some sweet, but not overboard, along with garlic and a juice, which I stated to likely be pineapple juice earlier.
While severely tantalizing, this flavor is lacking in both the sweet (a good thing) and the heat (not quite so good). I detect a ‘tang’, or maybe better stated even a modicum of spice, but not really much in the line of ‘heat’.
Outside of that, this jerky is ridiculously addictive and has likely developed a bit of a cult following. It captivates the consumer, and brings us on a very succulent jerky ‘trip’, one which I am in the middle of right now and enjoying immensely. I might add, and would recommend to all jerky lovers.
I will have to award this delectable jerky treat a 9/10, only deducting a point due to the lack of true heat. Gentlemen?
Here is what Mark had to say about this Sweet And Hot beef jerky flavor from Stoney Point Premium Meat Snacks: “Thanks Paul for the fantastic taste review. I could not agree with you more. The pineapple taste/smell is soy sauce. True in that there is very little heat present. This flavor is more sweet & spicy rather than sweet & hot. Otherwise, this a great old fashioned tasting jerky. A well-deserved Very Good (9/10) taste rating will be awarded.”
This 8 ounce/227 gram bag of jerky sells at the Stoney Point Farm Market stores for $13.00, which equates to $1.63 an ounce. That rates at a pretty cheap price.
Very Good (9/10) – 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.
