Just last week something rather interesting dropped through my letterbox - jerky.
What, you ask yourselves, is Hamburger Me to do with a pack of jerky? Well, it just so happens this jerky is cheeseburger jerky. CHEESEBURGER FLAVOURED JERKY, PEOPLE!

Sent from the office of Mr William Yates, under the name of Billy Franks: Gourmet Jerky Snacks, is a vacuum packed 40g bag of jerky.

MEAT WIN! It's very, very good. The pieces of jerky were chewy but succulent, clearly retaining a good deal of moisture in the drying process. To paraphrase Brendon Fraser from The Mummy "it's still...gooey".
The first tastes that hit are the pickles and mustard, followed by the softer american cheese, all supported with a backbone of beefiness. It's a snack that nostalgically takes me back to eating McDonalds happy meal cheeseburgers when I was younger - but made with quality prime british beef - and it's the meat snack version of crack. Now I'm off to get some more.
It's £2.99 a pack from the Billy Franks website, so go buy some, but be quick, it's only on special until the end of June!
