I’m jaded. So when I opened up a bag of new hickory smoked Slim Jim Bacon Jerky—available anywhere meat products are sold—I assumed I’d find regular pieces of jerky that were merely bacon-flavored. Nope. What I found were strips of real bacon. That also tasted like real bacon. With a hint of jerkiness. Try it yourself. You’re basically enjoying a bag of bacon. And that’s a good thing. For your mouth if not your arteries.
