DEARBORN BRAND – ORIGINAL BEEF STICK
Written by guest meat stick reviewer Paul Rekker
When I rip open the packaging for the beef stick I smell nothing. The beef stick is rather soft and flaccid, and maybe it needs a Viagra pill or two.
However, things take a sharp turn for the better when I bite into the beef stick. I am met with the tastes of salt, pepper, garlic, and vinegar, even though I don’t see vinegar on the ingredient list. I taste almost no sweet whatsoever, which to me is a blessing.
This original beef stick is a delectable and delicious morsel of flavor “heaven”. The only ever-so-slight issue I may have with this beef stick is that the collagen casing does not “snap” when I bite it. It is also scrumptious and addictive, just as beef sticks were intended to be. A 9.5/10 for me, which would be a 10/10 when you round up. Gentlemen?
Here is what Mark had to say about this Original beef stick flavor from Dearborn Brand: “Thanks for the candid taste review Paul. While Stéphane participated in this review, he did not produce a taste review. He did state that this beef stick tasted very good but did not articulate a 9 or 10 taste rating. Myself, I too, enjoyed this beef stick. I would have liked to see the taste of onion and garlic more in the forefront, but that is not a requirement for an original flavor.”
“Regarding the texture, the snap is minimal, but there is some snap. A tasty sourness comes from the lactic acid. The salt level is good, and I agree that there is minimal sweetness present. In fact, the overall taste profile blends in very well. With Paul, I, and presumably Stéphane all in the 9 or 10 taste rating range with no clear cut problems, an Excellent (10/10) taste rating will be awarded.”
The plastic bag has everything imprinted directly on the front and nothing on the back. This bag is vacuum sealed, the best way to keep a product fresh tasting.
One slogan printed on this bag could be “Est 1946”. There are no facts printed on this bag.
