Uncle Andy’s Serves Up Artisanal Angus Jerky
Uncle Andy’s Jerky -- a Colorado-based craft beer-inspired artisanal jerky company — adds Boise’s Mushroom Blue Cheese to its product lineup. The new flavor is described as tasting like a grilled steak topped with mushrooms and blue cheese, complete with a steak-like chewing texture. It joins Bandito Loco’s Spicy Coffee, Lumberjack Maple Bourbon, Southern Gent Lemon Mint and Tex’s Tangy BBQ.
“I’ve always loved how blue cheese is used on burgers, steaks and many other meat dishes, and I am excited to bring the bold flavor to jerky,” says Andy Hanenberg, founder of the three-year-old company. “After researching dozens of recipes I decided that the combination of mushrooms and blue cheese would create an amazing taste profile and be a great complement to our Choice Angus beef jerky. We’re looking forward to introducing our fans to more seasonal jerky varieties in the months and years ahead.”
A 28g serving of the new flavor contains 60 calories, 9g of protein and 2g of fat. It contains no preservatives or nitrates. A 2-oz. recloseable bag retails for $7.49.
