Taste test: This jerky looked like bacon, because it was bacon, with the expected stripes alternating between a maroon red and pink. I grabbed a piece and bit in to find a sticky, sugary feel on the fingertips, then a very sweet taste to match that sugary feel. The sweetness didn't last, is it transitioned to a fairly significant heat, thanks to the sriracha flavoring.
What it didn't taste like, either initially or later, was bacon. The smokiness was absent. But the heat was pretty nice, not super-hot, but still a noticeable burn, and it lingered around in the aftertaste. A good one, but if you’re craving bacon, this bacon probably won’t do the trick.
Smell test: Not like bacon at all. Very sweet. Maybe similar to other jerky, but way sweeter.
