... I’ve tried the other brands’ biltong and beef jerky available on the market but they just don’t compare. Yours is clearly the best and the tastiest. I just can’t stop eating it...
... I’ve been enjoying your biltong since you first began making it in the 1980’s in your small delicatessen. They are still the best by far... and I’ve eaten a lot of biltong in my life...
