VIKINGJ20030

Looks like they acquired the mailing list as well…

Summary of email

Three of the Friendly Grocer stores stocked Geronimos, which then stopped. The owner ("Viking Tony") approached Gerominos owner and acquired their recipes
They've finished building a commercial kitchen and "Viking Jerky" is being trialled with 4 Flavours

  • Original (traditional jerky)
  • The Craken (cracked pepper) aka BuckShot
  • Berserk Barbeque aka Spicy Shaman
  • Valhalla Habanero aka award winning Sidewinder

…more flavours to come

Limited stock

Shipping looks reasonable as a flat rate of $8 (unclear if they're using AusPost due to recent decisions to no longer deliver perishable products)

    I still have over $100 stuck with Geronimos :/ waited for a package that never came, tried reaching out to them with no response and then they shut down.

  •  

    Looks like the web server is down. Im not sure they are prepared for the potential traffic from Ozbargain

      It was down on the first 20 clicks :/

    Is this even any good? How do ppl rate these

      Haven't tried Viking but Geronimo was the bomb, cure was on the harder side (saw jaw after a while haha), but the seasoning was the best of the few that I tried (Jim's, Biltong Man, Swagman, Ripsaw, a couple random ones on eBay).

      Unfortunately if you dig into the OzB history a fair few people got stuffed about/screwed by Geronimo before they ended up shutting down. Hopefully 'Viking Tony' doesn't go the same route! I'm going to give it a try.

    I was a long time Geronimo customer until they went AWOL on us.

    I tried D.Jays Gourmet and haven't looked back. Very comparable to Geronimo. $80/kg with various cut lengths, fatty varieties and flavours.

    Also sell Biltong, boerewors, and droewors!

    Shame that people got screwed by Geronimo, when did this happen?
    For me Geronimo's was too dry/hard for me & my brother, whose very picky.

    The best I've had IMHO is Silvers (https://www.beefjerkybysilvers.com.au/).
    Another good thing is their flavors/quality that haven't changed much, if at all over a 4+ years period, came across them while on holidays interstate.
    Couldn't find a flavor that I didn't like, every time.
    Just wished that did bigger packs vs multiple small packs.

    Followed by jerky & biltong from https://biltong.com.au.
    Jim's also good, not as dry as some others, I've tried Swagman also, but too long ago & cant recall their taste.
    Heavenly jerky on eBay was nice, their Bourbon Honey (not dry) was good, but doesn't have a strong flavor, after trying their sample pack, I would only get this again.

    Looks like I need to try Ripsaw, Biltong Man & D.Jays, thanks for mentioning them.

    •  

      Just wanted to add:
      Some flavors of Heavenly jerky was a bit dry.

      Also need to try Viking jerky.

  •  

    the email is real dodgy, riddled with spelling errors, address is wrong at the bottom, if you already got burned by geronimo maybe something to consider

    •  

      They take PayPal, so should be pretty safe if they don't deliver.

      I will be back online this afternoon to follow up. Cooking and packing, cooking and packing, cooking and packing BRB :-)

      I really like Jack Links teriyaki flavor which one of your flavors would you recommmend.

      •  

        All of our flavours are top notch with no artificial flavours or preservatives and high in protein with no sugar added.
        We will do a teriyaki soon which was their Powwow and possibly if you order something today and email me I will do a sample of our tester natural hickory smoked Maple Jerky.

          Cool, thanks! Do we get the 100g tester pack as well?

          •  

            @j0hnd0e: Unfortunate, but no as I have the price down to $17 for walk-in customers during this sale.

      Any comment about How dry/quality/Taste ? etc

    • +1 vote

      It is American style beef jerky not biltong so dryer but as we are using a premium cut and slicing against grain, it is a great chew.. It is all natural so no added chemicals. A lot of jerkys and biltong have rubish in them to give them a longer shelf life, We do not.

        Thanks will try them..

      Ordered two 200gm bags of the buckshot around 10 days or so ago, and they arrived a few days ago.
      It is just as good as geronimo (maybe even a little better since geronimo could sometimes have quality control issues)
      It's just as dry and flavoursome as i remember.
      Even the new tester product was great.
      Will be buying more soon.

    FYI Op - AusPost has back-flipped on their previous decision not to transport perishable food.
