Happy National Jerky Day! Every year, on June 12, jerky-lovers around the world celebrate the delicious and nutritious snack that is jerky. Not only is jerky packed with protein that helps keep you full between meals, but these dried meats are also low in fat, calories and carbs. This year, we decided to celebrate National Jerky Day with a nice hike and T.O.P. Chops Beef Jerky.
Handcrafted from American beef, T.O.P. Chops Jerky is available in four unique and tasty beef jerky flavors: Original, Teriyaki, Sweet & Spicy and Red Chili Pepper. Unlike a lot of other jerky, T.O.P. Chops slices their beef very thinly, which produces a tender, easy-to-chew jerky that won’t wear out your jaw as you eat it. They also use USDA Graded Select or better beef sourced from US steers.
Another thing that differentiates T.O.P. Chops beef jerky from other jerky is their flavor. T.O.P. Chops uses a proprietary 24-hour marinade that utilizes plum powder as a sweetener. Plum powder – or dried plum juice – is a new ingredient that is also packed with antioxidants and fiber. The use of plum powder to sweeten the jerky marinade allows the meat to absorb the flavors while minimizing sugar, salt, fats, and artificial ingredients.
Let me tell you, the flavor is awesome. I can’t decide whether the Original flavor or the Sweet & Spicy flavor is my favorite. The T.O.P. Chops Original Beef Jerky has a subtle sweetness but really lets the beef flavor shine. The Sweet & Spicy T.O.P. Chops Beef Jerky hits you with a punch of sweetness, followed by a mild spice. I was surprised at how much I liked this one as I’m not the hugest fan of spicy. But here, the spice was just enough to balance the sweetness so it was neither too sweet nor too hot. I couldn’t get enough and probably ate a little more than I should’ve. 🙂
And I have to say, just as their bags say, T.O.P. Chops jerky is exceptionally tender. Every bite tasted fresh, had great texture, and was enjoyable to eat. T.O.P. Chops Beef Jerky is a great afternoon or between-meal snack.
