Product Review: Vegan Dream Vegetarian Jerky

When I visited Never Felt Better Vegan Shop in Sacramento, I couldn’t resist buying some vegan jerky. This one is from Vegan Dream and set me back about $2.50. Vegan Dream has been around since 1997 and uses ingredients that are non-GMO. Their jerky products are also high in protein and preservative and fat free. According to their website, Vegan Dream’s jerky just took home the first place prize in The World’s Best Jerky Exhibition. They don’t specify which of their 4 flavors won, but I doubt it was the one I tried:  “Cowgirl.” I just wasn’t impressed. It was dried-out, not very chewy, and I just didn’t like the taste.  Just like with other vegan jerky I’ve tried, this one had a chocolate-like taste that doesn’t do it for me. It tastes weird. Perhaps their Original Hickory Pepper, Hot Chili Pepper, or Teriyaki flavors would fare better, but for now, I’m still on the hunt for delicious vegan jerky.
