“ Brand: Yummy Meats / Type: Beef Jerky „
Yummy Foods has just set up a European branch based in Tallinn, Estonia - it's a good move as the protein filled beef jerky could prove popular amongst Central and Eastern European body builders who have significantly more money than they once did, it's currently one of the best priced brands of beef jerky around.
Made from lean Uruguayan beef, there's next to no fat content and this traditional American snack is ideal for people watching their weight, a brilliant source of protein, the fact that good quality beef is compressed also makes it quite dear.
A 50g pack like the one in the photo will set you back around 3 euros, not too dear but it makes it a less convenient snack than a packet of crisps! There's about 140 calories in a package like this and Yummy Foods make it in several flavours.
Teriyaki seemed a bit of an odd choice for me, as it doesn't come across very American, Teriyaki is a Japanese method of soaking meat in soya sauce, whether this has actually been done or if it's just got a sort of soya flavour to it, I'm not completely sure.
Initially I found the sort of sweet and spicy flavour a treat but it's a bit sickly after a while and it's ny on impossible to finish a bag of them in one go, a decent snack for sure but I don't think they lend themselves to being teriyaki-ed. I'm not a big fan of soya sauce but my wife loves it, however she agreed with me when it came to these, so the flavour must be a bit too overpowering!
