Kooee jerky

Product review: Kooee! jerky

Jerky and macadamias are my go-to snack when I need something nutritious and portable. My favourite macadamias are Hand’n’Hoe (I buy them at the Eveleigh farmers market) but I’m still looking for the “perfect” jerky.

I was researching some things (read: wasting time) on the net when I came across Kooee! jerky, which caught my eye thanks to their short list of gluten-free, refined sugar-free ingredients. This jerky is made in Tassie using top quality Cape Grim grass-fed beef.

Smoked chipotle, sesame ginger

The current flavours are smoked chipotle and sesame ginger. I love the packaging, both visually and functionally. The serve is not huge but you can reseal the bag in case you don’t finish all the jerky in one go. The jerky pieces are the right size (don’t you hate when you get a long strip that is impossible to break down with your bare hands?) and, most importantly, very thin. This means that they are easier to chew and, in the case of the sesame ginger, crunchy. I absolutely loved both flavours but if I had to choose, I would pick the smoked chipotle, which was not very hot.

I also got a sneak peek of new flavours that are in the pipeline: habanero and mountain pepper.

Habanero, mountain pepper

The habanero flavour is H-O-T, even for me. The heat overpowers the flavour if you eat these by themselves but I can imagine they would make a great vehicle for guacamole, for example. The mountain pepper was nice, with a more familiar jerky flavour.

Out of the four flavours I sampled I preferred the two that are currently on the market (sesame ginger and smoked chipotle). A huge thanks to Andy for sending me the samples, and, most importantly, for his excellent customer service. I have found my favourite brand of jerky.
