November's LVJ Subscription



This month's Louisville Vegan Jerky subscription came early, which made me happy. I love this jerky. Here's this month's card: a group photo of the employees of LVJ. The only person missing is me! Just kidding, but I do love this jerky.





I was completely surprised when I opened this month's box. Typically, a month's subscription contains two standard flavors and one test flavor. Not this time! This month, I received my usual three bags, but they were all test flavors. Here we have Gochujang Kimchi BBQ. 

Now, I know that kimchi is a spicy, fermented condiment made with cabbage, scallions and/or other ingredients, but I had never heard of gochujang. I looked it up, and it's another spicy Korean condiment made from red chilis, rice, fermented soybeans, and sometimes other ingredients. Interesting!

It's a Korean BBQ flavor too, so the combination of the bbq, kimchi, and gochujang should be some spicy-hot, sweet-bbq-flavored goodness. I can't wait to try it.





Here we have Peanut Thai flavor jerky. I love peanut Thai anything, so I already know I'm going to love this one!





The last flavor is Pineapple Sweet & Sour. Now, this isn't their first go-around with this test flavor. I received it once before, and it was the only LVJ jerky flavor I didn't like. It was hard, dry, and difficult to eat. Other customers seemed to have the same issue, so I'm wondering if they have improved upon the original recipe. I hope so, as I'm willing to give it another try.


So, it seems LVJ has given us some cool test flavors to try out this month, all with an Asian theme. I've recently started using their jerky for more than munching. I have used the Smokey Chipotle in tacos, and I used their Chorizo test flavor for breakfast scramble. They also sell other items, such as bacon bits. Their bacon bits are far superior to the fake commercial kind you find in any grocery store. I guess, then, I will try out the Pineapple Sweet & Sour in a stir fry, or something, and see if I like it any better.

It's now Wednesday, and since there's a holiday around the corner, it's "Friday" for many of us. I'll be back on actual Friday with a new Thanksgiving post, but until then, I hope you have a wonderful holiday filled with laughter, good food, fun, and love.

Much love,

H.A.
