Disclaimer: I am a Bzz Agent and I received a box of Lorissa’s Kitchen jerky products to try and to review.
I love getting free samples of products to try. Even more, I love getting free samples of snacks or other food items to try. Something yummy to try seems to make a product even better.
A couple of days, a box arrived for me from Bzz Agent with four one ounce bags of Lorissa’s Kitchen products to try. Also included in the box was a product card for each of the four bags, along with three $1 off coupons for Lorissa’s Kitchen products.
Before I tasted and tried each bag, I looked at the product cards that came with the box of snacks. These products are all gluten free, with no added MSG, no preservatives, 100% grass-fed beef, chickens raised with no antibiotics, and no added growth hormones. All good…
The packaging even has a little clear see-through window to see the product inside the bag. Nice – you can see what you’re getting.
Each bag of jerky snacks that came for me to review is a one ounce bag. Each bag is one serving, with 11 grams of protein, and only 80 calories per bag.
With only 80 calories a bag, and with 11 grams of protein per one ounce bag, these make a nice snack that you can take just about anywhere. Great for anyone who needs gluten free food, diabetics who can’t have all the sugar, someone wanting to lose weight or not gain weight from snacking, snacks at work or school, etc.Lorissa’s Kitchen Jerky Product Review Click To Tweet
Okay, so now for the taste review. The fun part! I divided each bag between me and my oldest son. (Hubby doesn’t like anything spicy so he didn’t try any samples.)
Ginger Teriyaki Chicken – The Ginger Teriyaki Chicken from Lorissa’s Kitchen is my favorite flavor. I like this one the best. Of all four bags, this one is the tastiest. The flavor is a bit spicy but it’s not hot. This is the one flavor I would definitely buy for myself. My son liked this one also. I could probably have eaten a lot of this one! It’s that good.
Szechuan Peppercorn Beef – The Lorissa’s Kitchen Szechuan Peppercorn Beef flavor is good also. It’s a wee bit spicy, but not too much, just a tiny bit on the hot side, but not so much that you can’t enjoy it. My son didn’t care as much for this one. I would probably buy this one but not as often as the chicken flavor.
Korean Barbeque Seasoned Beef – The Korean Barbeque Seasoned Beef flavor from Lorissa’s Kitchen is my son’s favorite. He likes this particular flavor the most. It’s not hot, not spicy. For me, it’s not all that tasty though. It’s not bad by any means, just didn’t seem to have as much flavor or taste to it. I would buy it for my son but I probably would not buy it for myself.
Sweet Chili Pork – Oh my… this one! The Lorissa’s Kitchen Sweet Chili Pork is so spicy! It’s good but so hot. If you like hot and spicy (and I do mean hot and spicy!) then you will love this particular flavor. My son loves hot and spicy but even this one was too hot and spicy for him. Honestly, this one I most likely will not be buying simple because it’s just TOO hot. Otherwise, I would buy it. It might be right up your alley. Did I mention it’s hot? Perhaps the *chili* could be a dead giveaway LOL. It’s not bad, not at all, just way too spicy for me. 🙂
I do like the fact that the animals are raised in a responsible and humane manner. That makes a huge difference to me personally. I also like the fact that this is something you can eat and snack on that’s not bad for you, not loaded with MSG and a ton of preservatives, not loaded with gluten, doesn’t have a ton of calories, etc.
And since I am also on a weight loss journey, this is a product that I can snack on and not have to worry about gaining weight from it. Plus the added benefit of 11 grams of protein per one ounce bag is nice … some added energy from snacking.
Overall, I would recommend these Lorissa’s Kitchen snacks. Just be sure to have some ice on hand if you choose the Sweet Chili Pork flavor! 🙂
