Taste test: The three beef sticks in this package had the same general color, texture and shape as hot dogs, except a little thinner.
It was easy to bit into the sticks, with none of the extreme chewiness that you would get from a beef jerky-type snack. The flavor was somewhat tangy and pretty good, but not very pepperoni-like in terms of the flavor or the intensity. There was no heat, and not much of an aftertaste either. So for a pepperoni snack, these were really quite bland.
Smell test: Nice sharp pepperoni-like smell.
From the package: “Made in Nebraska” ... “Ingredients: Beef, Water, Salt, Flavourings (including Paprika), Dextrose, Lactic Acid Starter Culture, and Sodium Nitrate.” ... “Refrigerate after opening” ... “No MSG!”
