Anyways….First up: Epic Bars.
From the website:
The EPIC bar is a 100% grass fed animal based protein bar designed as nature intended. Paleo friendly, gluten free, and low in sugar, we believe that EPIC foods should inspire EPIC health.
I’ve seen them in the Paleo blogosphere so I was thrilled when I was able to get some free samples. When I Instagrammed this picture, everyone was like “what!?!? a meat protein bar?!?!?” And basically yeah- that’s how I would mostly describe it: a cross between a protein bar and beef jerky.
There are three flavors:
Turkey Almond Cranberry
Beef Habenero Cherry
Bison Bacon Cranberry
The taste is like a sweetened beef jerky, the texture is that of a mushy protein bar. Softer and less chewy than jerky. My favorite was by far the bison.
I won’t lie…have I had better tasting, sweeter, more addicting protein bars? Yes. Did said protein bars have un-pronounceable, sugary additives? Yes. If the quality of the ingredients is a high priority, and you’re an athlete or someone looking to get some quality protein after a workout I would recommend these over any other sugar/crap laden bar or protein shake. By far.
To me, just knowing it is a lean source of quality protein is enough to make them a winner. In the words of Cave Girl Eats…this bar says “B*tch…I’m a protein bar”. LOL
So..if you’re looking for a quality source of protein after your workout and don’t want to fall victim to the latest sugar-trap protein shake concoction…you should try these out! Or just order them and try them out regardless ‘cause you’re addicted to online food shopping like me!!
What are your favorite protein bars??
Do you ever eat beef jerky?
