Things I See - Beef Jerky Betrayal


I have never eaten beef jerky before and after seeing a bag of teriyaki beef jerky at the dollar store, I thought I'd give it a shot. After all, it said "DELICIOUS!" on top of the bag. What could go wrong?


Everything went wrong. Oh my god, that made me want to burn all the jerky in the world.

When I first opened the pack, it didn't smell anything like beef or teriyaki. It smelled like hot sweat and burned salt. I had to taste it sooner or later since I spent a dollar on it that could've gone to a bottle of Pepsi or a delicious chocolate bar.

It tasted like salt on paper. It wasn't really "delicious" as the bag said. It was horrible. Really horrible. Never try that beef jerky again.

The worst part was that the room still had the stench of teriyaki hot sweat and burned salt because the powder had somehow blown across the room. I had to spray Febreze on my desk and around the room because washing my desk wasn't good enough.

Dear god, I now hate beef jerky.
