Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Walker's Nobby's Cuts Confirmed sighting: Walker's Nobby's Cuts
Posted: 15:53 Mon 06-Mar-2006. Price: 1.20. Location: The Orson Welles (pub), Tunbridge Wells. Sub-flavours: "Mighty Meaty" Original. Nutritional unusualness: Energy - 270kj/ 64kcal, Protein - 11.3g, Carbs - 2.3g (sugars 2.0g), Fat - 1.1g, Fibre - 0.1g, Sodium - 0.5g (all per per 25g pack).
"Kuzzer" reports: Biltong for amateurs. Not quite as sweet and sickly as US-style beef jerky, yet not in-yer-face enough to compete with real Southern African Biltong. Curiously salty, but a passable accompaniment to a pint of bitter. Made in Argentina, and on sale in a Kent pub, which I guess is ample evidence of the growing detente between our two great nations. Apparently it takes 200g of beef to make 100g of Nobby's Cuts - a 50% dehydration ratio - compared with the de-rigeur 70%-odd of Biltong. Sadly, it contains the dreaded MSG, plus disodium inosinate, sodium erythorbate and sodium nitrite - none of which would find their way into more traditionally cured air-dried animal products. As an introduction to the world of dried meat - not a bad start - but would encourage newcomers to quickly graduate to the delights of Kudu, Impala, Springbok, Ostrich and Zebra at the first opportunity.

...Elsewhere, "Phill" failed to provide photo evidence of the McCoy's Specials Ridged Tortillas - Nacho Cheese and Sour Cream flavour he claimed to have purchased for 50p in Edinburgh: "Found these whilst walking by a small deli near my work. There was another flavour, but I honestly can't remember what it is" - probably one of Sizzling Steak and Onion Fajita, Hickory Smoked Ribs, or Red Chilli and Lime, if word on the street is anything to go by.

Comment: Good god. £1.25 (in my local Spar) for that? There's barely a thumb's worth. They must be off their heads.

Comment: Found these on sale at the wonderful Trago Mills in Devon. What can I say, I love Nobby's Nuts and Nobby's Crisps so much that these had to be tried... It took a bar of Yorkie and copious liquid to wash the taste away, and that was after breaking off one very small piece to try. BLEUGH! It's the most offensive thing I've tasted in a LONG time. Now I've never tasted beef jerky so I guess I was expecting something along the lines of Pepperami, but no! This is horrible. I actually had to re-check the packet to make sure it wasn't a doggy treat. Avoid!

Comment: How thoroughly rude! I purchase these daily from my local Morrison's (69p a go). It can't be denied that there are a plethera of ingredient nasties in this rather thick plastic bag, but get over it! Read the label and make your choice! I find them quite acceptable (The other Jerky stuff in the great big bags it more than double the cost and to my taste is rather bland - so there!)

Comment: Why is it rude? It's someone voicing their opinion, which I thought was the purpose of this place...

Comment: But they are essentially dog treats though, no question, they wouldn't be out of place on the shelf in a petshop next to the pedigree jumbones lol 79172 9

Comment: i got mine from morrissins for 69p which is a better price than others that i have tried.i think they taste great.as for calling them doggy treats,you are wrong as jerky was being made for human comsumption long before it was used for dogs.
