I recently came across these bars and felt that they were way too good not to share! I have absolutely no affiliation to EPIC Bar, even though I wish I did! These guys are going to do well!!!!
So many people find bars to be an easy and convenient way to eat on the run. I have never been a big fan of them due to the fact that most are full of cheap protein (often soy) and sweeteners to make them tolerable. These bars on the other hand, are full of grass-fed goodness from meat, healthy fats from nuts and a bit of sweetness from fruit. It may sound like a weird combination, but these are delicious and a must try!!!
These are perfect for a grab and go snack or for those of you that need a quick breakfast. I think these are great for athletes that have chosen to fuel with other sources besides gu's and gels. Each bar provides between 11 and 14 grams of protein, some healthy fats and a few carbs from the fruit. I have to say I liked them all and would buy all 3 again, but if I had to pick a favorite, it would be the Bison and Bacon. Go figure...anything you add bacon to is delicious! The texture is moist, not dry like jerky. Also, most jerky's have soy sauce or other questionable seasonings, these are made from simple and natural ingredients that you can feel good about putting in your body!!!
They are unfortunately only available online right now, but will be making their way to Whole Foods later this summer. I am hoping they will be showing up in many locations here in Colorado where I think they will sell like crazy! I think they are very reasonably priced and are comparable to many other bars on the market in terms of price point. Definitely go check out there website and their story of why former vegetarian athletes turned to animal protein to fuel their bodies.
