Astro Fresh Jerky - Buffalo Chicken Wing

astro fresh jerky
Astro Fresh Jerky is a brand owned by HJP Trading, LLC based out of Los Angeles, CA. It was started by Roy Park in early 2015 who found an old family recipe that dated back to the late 1980s.

Since then, Roy has been selling his jerky in local markets and retailers in California. Recently they started a website and are now taking online orders.

This Buffalo Chicken Wing is a chicken jerky.


Chicken, water, sugar, hot sauce, sodium nitrite.


The first flavors that hit my palate is a strong sweet followed by a buffalo wing sauce. The chewing brings on more of the same flavors.

For being marketed as "Buffalo Chicken Wing", it certainly tastes like buffalo wing sauce, except more sweet, and without the heat. It's quite mild on spice, but keeps that unique buffalo wing sauce flavor.

And that's the primary taste profile, a heavily sweetened, buffalo wing sauce, without the heat and spice. The chicken itself doesn't offer much flavor aside from a "chickeny" flavor in the background.

The meat consistency appears to be all meat and little to no fat or gristle. It starts out a little stiff and chewy, but softens up over several chews. It eventually takes on a chicken-like texture, mosty dry. Some pieces chew mushy, however.


This Buffalo Chicken Wing chicken jerky from Astro Fresh does offer that unique buffalo wing sauce flavor, but heavily sweetened, and without the heat and spice. Aside from that, there's little else to report. I wasn't impressed with the heavily sweetened wing sauce, I'd rather have it with a touch of sweet, and perhaps boosted with citrus, like lemon or orange. The chicken meat itself felt mushy at times, and the "chickeny" taste in the back of my mouth doesn't evoke a fresh feeling. Overall, I didn't get much snackability from this.

Rating: Fair
