Too Cheap Food: Dollar Store Beef Jerky

Beef Jerky from Dollar Tree Store“You get what you pay for.” It’s a saying that gets used alot these days. But I like to bend the rules. I’m always scouting for a great deal or a new sale. and are my friends. But I will admit, sometimes cheaper is not necessarily better. This brings me to our first installment of “Too Cheap Food”!

“Too Cheap Food” is a segment in which we will explore the world of food that is, you guessed

it, too cheap. I’m talking about the clearance basket at the grocery store, the food aisle at the dollar store or any other way to get questionable food at questionable prices.

Today’s judgment: Mystery Brand Beef Jerky from Dollar Tree.

You know you’re in for a treat when your food has no name brand on it. All the package says on the front is “Beef Jerky Original”. But what company will I sue when I get food poisoning send the thank you notes to after I finish off this bag of delicious smoked protein? That’s ok though, at least we get 50% more of this mystery meat! Completely worth it! Oooh! On the back in tiny letters, I found the distributor: Greenbrier International Inc in Chesapeake, VA! Well, now I sure am relieved!

Alright, I ate about half of the jerky and I didn’t get a stomach ache! I did, however, almost get a jaw ache. These this taste smoky and all, but are hard as hell! The package says “Slowly Smoked Over Aged Wood”. I think that’s pretty accurate, but they added one word too many: “over”. This tastes more like “Slowly Smoke Aged Wood”. Honest mistake, don’t beat yourself up over it Greenbrier. Ok, so I am exagerating but this stuff is pretty tough to chew. The flavor is sweet and smoky, but seems to need a little stronger flavor.

As it turns out, 50% more crap still equals out to 150% crap. Amazing!

I give Greenbrier Beef Jerky a 2 out of 5 on the Awesomeness Meter:
