*Your jerky preference may be different than mine.
Have you tried jerkies by Golden Island? I see them occasionally at Costco. I usually see one flavor at a time. They sell jerkies with exotic & unique flavors such as Kung Pao Beef & Korean Barbecue Pork. They are tender and rich in flavor.
Their jerkies are handcrafted in small batches – according to their website.
I wondered about how they tasted. Then I received these samples. I can’t describe taste with words – but they are all good. My favorite is Kung Pao beef. If I see them at Costco I will buy some. I thought may be close up pictures can show the textures. They may give you some idea.
Most jerkies in the market have a similar taste. They have a common theme going on. But, Golden Island sells jerkies with unique taste that if I have a craving for Kung Pao beef, there will be no substitute for it. Maybe this kind of jerky is common in China Town…. (?) I don’t know.
If you are a jerky lover who likes Asian & ethnic taste, these may be a special treat for you. You can see them occasionally at Costco.
Look below for pictures and my quick reviews on each product.
Grilled Barbecue – Although I enjoyed it, this tasted more “Common” to me.
Korean Barbeque (Pork) – Very nice and exotic (different)
Sriracha (pork) – Very nice and exotic (different)
Kung Pao (Beef) – Perhaps my favorite of them all. It’s exotic, spicy (not very spicy), and has rich ethnic taste. Look at all that peppers. It doesn’t taste like anything I’ve tasted before. I liked it a lot. I want some more.
