Taste test: This snack pack included a square-profile orange cheddar cheese stick with red and green bits of peppers visible in it, and a round-profile beef stick flavored with jalapeno peppers, each about six inches long.
The shrink-wrap packaging allowed the two sticks to be consumed separately or together. The cheese stick seemed a bit bland at first, as the cheddar was not sharp, but it did a have a slightly hot aftertaste. The beef stick was a bit dry, but it was quite tasty, with a mild heat at first that got hotter and stuck around for an aftertaste. I tried a few bites of combining the two, and the taste was pretty good, certainly better than having the cheese alone.
Smell test: Good spicy meat smell on the beef stick; just a slight cheese smell on the cheese stick.
From the package: “BHA, BHT & Citric Acid added to help protect flavor” ... “U.S. inspected and passed by Department of Agriculture Est. 2585”
