Power of the People

Don't just take our word for it.  Here is some of the feedback from our fans so far.  Here's what the people say: 

 

Eat-Share-Love Biltong.  Et bien sur... Vive le Biltong!

A Story

Written by Christine Turcan, a Marseillaise girl in Paris.  Edited for public viewing by Warren Stribling.

For some of our fans, biltong truly becomes a story. Here is one we really adored and appreciated:

(Starts in French, went to English.)

 

How she heard about biltong…

'...un ami sud africain (rugbyman en France) qui adore la viande me reparle ...de sa viande séchée favorite, le biltong. Jusque là pour lui faire plaisir je lui achetais de la bresaola du speck, de la viande de grison, il aimait mais me disait que ça ne valait pas le biltong.'

 

'Merci de cette bonne idée, il me parle souvent de votre truc et je n'arrivais pas à en trouver.'

 

After receiving her first order…

'I'm deeply sorry Warren but the biltong passed away.…

And I'm afraid he was totally delicious !'

 

'To be totally honest Warren you make my life dangerous !!!

I received yesterday evening death threats from my best friend … , born in Pays Basque

I warned him on facebook that my biltong has been delivered with a beautiful photo, he answered me word for word : "si tu bouffes tout le biltong je te tue !".

He arrived quickly, I have only eaten one packet and an hour there was no more biltong and a dead white wine bottle (a Vernaccia from San Gimignano in Tuscany, the association work wonders).'

 

In the end, our heroine did manage to share the biltong...

Her Friend's Verdict : 'he loved your biltong, especially the one with garlic and ordered me to place a new order. '

Her verdict : 'the biltong is at the same time sweety, gently spicy with a little taste of vinegar. I really enjoyed it because it's flavourful. I'm used to eat a good italian dried meat called Bresaola but it's a little bit "flavour neutral"'

 

The conflict…

'Warren I think I have a problem.....

What will happen if I become a biltong addict ?

How can I explain that to my mum ? My partner ? My friends ?

Do you plan to open a biltong rehab center ?'

 

'no biltong to snack with a glass of wine. Such a shame.'

 

The heroine finds her solution…

'But I'm resourcefull and my best friend (my credit card, diamonds are overrated) is near to me and I will draw it more quickly than a légionnaire draw his FAMAS.'

 

Second order...

'where is the biltong ?

in my belly !'

 

 

Other comments:

'Re-bref, bravo pour votre français, vous écrivez merveilleusement bien pour un arkansasois (arkansasien ? arkansasonien ? re-re-re bref un mec de l'Arkansas).'

 

Final thoughts:

'Je n'ai plus qu'une chose à dire, vive la France, vive la République, vive l'Arkansas et longue vie au biltong (dans mon estomac et celui de Vickus).'

'J'ai servi du Biltong pour la première fois.

 

Mes trois fils (3 ; 5 ; 6 ans) et ma femme ont trouvé ça délicieux.

 

Conditionnement impeccable. 250g à la maison, 50 pour faire goûter aux amis, 25 dans le sac à dos.'

‘Je trouve ça génial que vous soyiez resté en France et que vous ayez pu rebondir comme ça ! Bon courage et merci.

 

Tout se passe très bien avec le biltong. Je suis un grand fan de viande séché, et en amenant pour des apéros en soirée, j'ai converti plusieurs amis sui vous passeront peut-être commande prochainement (je vous le souhaite) !

 

Je suis très content de ma commande ... !

 

Bonne journée et bonne continuation à vous d'ici à ma prochaine commande,’

‘Merci à l'article sur Russia Today qui m'a fait vous découvrir. J'ai tout de suite eu le coup de foudre pour votre produit qui me rappelle celui gouté en Namibie.

 

Première dégustation à l'occasion d'une sortie pêche avec un collègue. Le sachet est parti en moins de 5 minutes.

Goût excellent et idéal pour la pause casse croûte du matin.’
