Product Review: Pineapple Jerky

So being that Father’s Day is a couple of weeks away, I thought I’d share with you a great idea for a gift for dads. Not saying all men like jerky, but the majority I know do. I, personally, am not a fan. But then again, I never had pineapple jerky…

I received this product from the folks over at Jerky.comand approached with hesitation for a couple of reasons. First, as previously mentioned, Foodiedani is NOT a fan of jerky. In fact, the smell of some of the jerky my husband eats makes me nauseous. And secondly, it is made with honey, which I have a slight allergic reaction to when I eat. But alas, I’ll try anything once and it smelled damn good. Tropical. Sweet. I took a wee bite to not offset my weird allergy and I was pleasantly surprised. It was just dried fruit. It was good. Me likey. I left the rest of the stuff to the husband, since he is the jerky fan and he said he could eat this stuff every day.

Take a look over at the site. They offer interesting versions of meat jerky as well and gift baskets.  A neat gift for father’s day.

Greasy goodness…

The folks over at A Hamburger Today just posted a story about White Diamond in Linden, NJ.  It was on the front page of Serious Eats, one of my fav foodie sites. I grew up in Linden and spent many late nights chowing down on those little buns of heaven. Check out the story. If you live nearby and haven’t gone there, I suggest a road trip. I know I’ll be taking one. How could I forget all about this place?!
