Alien Fresh Jerky Co. Colon Cleanser Hot Jerky
Now a tradition when we take a Las Vegas road trip, on the return we stop by the Alien Fresh Jerky store to see what spicy products we can find. It’s here that previously we got an extract which we used for a recipe that will be featured at an upcoming dinner party. Last time we passed through, Zach chatted with the owner extensively about the selection of hot products and how different companies are constantly vying to create the newest, hottest item. Alien Fresh Jerky doesn’t try to compete, but their products are still pretty spicy without having to be the spiciest.
You may have thought the title of this article was a joke, but no, they really do call this “colon cleaner hot.” Zach assured August that there was no way it could be that hot. However, it was actually hot enough that August started to perspire around the eyes and ran for a piece of cheese.
The heat didn’t kick in until about six seconds after first chew, so at least there was a brief moment to savor the flavor of a slightly smoky, high quality jerky. There was some mild garlic and onion mingling with what was more of a traditional jerky taste, but the chilies, while hot, were also rich in flavor. We will let you know later if it turns out to be a true colon cleanser, but keep your fingers crossed for us.
