Jeff's Famous Jerky - Sweet Cinnamon Roll Bacon Jerky

jeffs famous jerky
The guys at Jeff's Famous Jerky have a new bacon jerky flavor out now, "Sweet Cinnamon Roll". Read our previous reviews of Jeff's Famous Jerky.

Jeff's Famous Jerky officially opened for business in 2010 and is owned and operated by Jeff's Famous Foods, Inc., led by founder Jeff Richards and CFO Mike Aggarwal, out of Mission Viejo, CA. The company offers numerous flavors of jerky, all hormone-free, American beef (or bacon), without added MSG or preservatives.

This Sweet Cinnamon Roll Bacon Jerky is the company's 5th bacon jerky variety, and according to them is described as, "A sweet mouth watering fusion of flavor", as well as, "the flavor of cinnamon rolls and the taste of soft gourmet bacon". It's also claimed to be gluten-free.


Ingredients

Bacon, brown sugar, powdered sugar, water, cinnamon, vanilla extract, butter buds

Review

The first thing I taste from the surface of these pieces is a combination of bacon, cinnamon, and lots of sweet. The chewing brings on a more defined bacon flavor.

For being marketed as something that tastes like cinnamon rolls, but maintains the goodness of bacon, it seems to live up to the hype. I definitely taste the flavor of cinnamon rolls, and not just the cinnamon and sugar, but more like the gooey topping and the fluffy white pastry bread too. But it still clearly has the bacon flavor. It's like eating a bacon sandwich with cinnamon rolls as the bread.

Overall, it's tastes pretty snackable. Imagine eating maple-syrup flavored bacon, or eating bacon that was doused with the sticky-sweet pancake topping, but with some cinnamon added.  It's comparble to that.

The meat consistency is classic bacon. It's very much like the kind you buy from a grocery store, but cooked halfway between soft and crispy. It has a similar thin-style cut, with the same balance between meat and fat, and chews exactly like real bacon.

Verdict

This Sweet Cinnamon Roll Bacon Jerky from Jeff's Famous Jerky definitely lives up to it's billing, tasting exactly like a sweet cinnamon roll, but having the classic flavor of bacon. Of course, it looks just like bacon and chews just like bacon too. But it's very highly sweet, in fact it may be better suited for kids and/or pregnant women on a snackfood binge. Still, overall I like the flavor. I like that this delivers on its claims, and that it chews and feels like real bacon. I found it hard to resist eating another strip, and I was certainly impressed with its cinnamon-roll flavor.
