Good product but flavours are not to my taste.
11 June 2016
Ordered this to sample a few different flavours. I do keto so high protein low carb snacks are a must.
The quality of the meat seemed good, not too dry, not too fatty. Packaging was good and the size of the individual packs is just right for me.
The reason that I am giving this 3 stars is really about the spices. All of the flavours I have eaten include ground cloves as an ingredient. While in itself this is fine, and cloves have long been used to season meats, there is just too much in the recipe. Doesn't matter if it's original or chilli or peri peri - every now and then, you'll get a mouthful of overpowering cloves. If you love cloves and would add to clove to everything, maybe this is the biltong for you. If like me you actually hate the taste of cloves in isolation, it really ruins an otherwise great product. For whatever reason, certain pieces are just incredibly clove-y, and eating these packs of biltong reminds me of those ads they used to run for Revels, set up like Russian Roulette until someone got the coffee one. I can't eat the rest of it because I keep thinking... will this next piece be the one?
I personally won't be ordering again, which is a shame as apart from the occasional clove bullets, it's actually really nice biltong.
