Slim Jim Tabasco

Slim Jim Tabasco takes the processed smoked snack stick you know and love and combines it with the spicy pepper sauce that you also know and love. It gives the meat stick an extra kick. It’s pretty good actually. I like it more than other Slim Jim flavors. It’s not extremely spicy but it makes you sweat a little bit. Real jerky is a thousand times better, but sometimes real jerky is not available. That’s when you grab a Slim Jim. And if you’re grabbing a Slim Jim, try the Tabasco infused one. As long as you’re settling for an inferior product, you might as well make it a superior inferior product. That’s what Slim Jim Tabasco is. A superior inferior product. That makes sense if you think about it long enough.

Slim Jim Maple Flavored Bacon Jerkey

Bacon is delicious. Jerky is delicious. It was inevitable that eventually the two superfoods would meet and create a delicious hybrid. I’ve been wanting to try bacon jerky for a while now and Slim Jim is an established presence on the dried meat market, so I figured I couldn’t go wrong. I opened the bag and took a deep whiff. I smelled the bacon, I smelled the sweet maple and the stale musk of jerky. I also smelled dog food… maybe Purina or Alpo, I’m not quite sure. But it was defiantely dog food. Oh well, I came to try bacon jerky, so I’m going to try bacon jerky damn it! Each piece looks like bacon, albeit the crumpled broken buffet table remnants leftover from a hungry breakfast crowd at a three star hotel. It smells like bacon, it looks like bacon, and it tastes like bacon. But it’s not bacon. It’s bacon jerky. Don’t get the two confused. It’s a little more jerky-like than bacon and more bacon-like than jerky. Try it and see for yourself. All in all, I’m not overly impressed with it but maybe that’s just because Slim Jim isn’t a gourmet brand per se. They are more in the beef stick business as opposed to jerky. This was a decent introduction to the world of bacon jerky, yet I’m sure other people make bacon jerky better and I’m determined to find them.

Slim Jim

A Slim Jim is a smoked sausage stick that is similar to beef jerky. You mostly find them at gas stations and 7-Elevens. Randy “Macho Man” Savage used to be the spokesman for Slim Jim. He got paid millions of dollars and received a lifetime supply of the meat sticks. He’s dead now. Just something to think about before you buy one. If you think that hot dogs are gross, you should read the ingredients in a Slim Jim. Anyone for mechanically separated chicken? Slim Jims are alright. I normally prefer regular beef jerky, but every once in a while you feel like snapping into a Slim Jim. A little mystery meat never hurt anyone. Except for Randy “Macho Man” Savage. Did I mention that he’s dead? Because of Slim Jims?
