Move over canned bacon. Bacon Jerky is here!
As of the writing of this very sentence, I have still not tasted Oberto Bacon Jerky. I’m ripping into the bag right now and getting a whiff of what smells like fresh, sizzling swine strips. This is a bewildering observation. The aroma is causing my nostrils to flare with approval. The idea that bacon jerky would smell like pure nastiness has been debunked.
Okay ya’ll, now I’m pulling a bacon jerky strip out the bag. Huh? It has the appearance of being freshly cooked, as if it just jumped out the frying pan right this very moment and onto my plate. This is another observation that brings confusion. My preconceived notion expected a very crappy experience before this point in the sampling. The bacon looks delicious.
Now excuse me while I chew.

Welp, I expected an overwhelming amount of saltiness, but didn’t get that either. It possesses only a pleasant level of saltines that high quality bacon brings. It tastes good ya’ll!
It’s meaty. It’s chewy and doesn’t have the texture of leather that threatens to rip the teeth out your mouth with each bite. This bacon jerky is fantastic enough that I could fool someone into thinking I just cooked it. YASSS! I am impressed.
