Things We Like: Epic Bar Review + Giveaway + Coupon Code

epic bars

Our Take

Epic bars are “protein bars”. They’re not protein bars in the sense that most of us have come to think of them though. They’re protein bars the way a protein bar should be – not soy crispies coated in chocolate…but bison, beef, and turkey (respectively). The company website describes their quest to procure humanely raised, pasture centered animals and it sounds excellent. They describe the bars as modern takes on pemmican (the age old native North American food of fat/protein/fruit mixture) and we’d agree. This is really more jerky and fruit or jerky and nuts smashed together than the fatty paste of traditional pemmican. In our opinion, this version is a taste much easier to acquire and is quite delicious.

I’m sitting here writing this wishing I had an Epic bar right now. We’re currently out and I miss them.

People often ask, “What can I eat for breakfast besides eggs?”. This would be a fantastic option. Convenient and nutritious. Ready to devour faster than you can say Pop Tart. Honestly, it’s the ultimate snack or meal replacement for anytime. Why? Because it’s even more convenient than jerky or trail mix (look ma one hand!) and is actually something you can chew on – unlike a shake. The bars are seasoned/spiced very well which gives you that sense of eating a small meal with married flavors rather than just plain old jerky.

It’s hard to pick a favorite flavor…like picking a favorite pizza topping…it depends on your mood.

Bison + Bacon + Cranberry
To me tastes like smokey, sweet barbecue beef brisket. Do I really need to say anything else about it?

Beef + Habanero + Cherry
This is the only bar of the three that contains nuts (walnuts). So I appreciate this one for having a little nutty crunch in it. Less smokey than the bison but with a nice Latin flare of sweet heat.

Turkey + Almond + Cranberry
Hard to believe that turkey can give bison or beef a run for its money but it can. These are tandoori spiced and remind me of the Curry Turkey Burgers from our book. Again, only in portable, one-handed-devouring form that doesn’t require a fridge.

The packaging and website are absolutely beautiful. I don’t think you really need any special occasion to buy these bars but they’d be fantastic for traveling, hiking/biking, CrossFit (and all other) competitions, for kids – just to name a few. If you name your bar Epic, you better back it up. We’d say they have done so quite well.

    I am most excited about the Turkey + Almond + Cranberry. I love the taste of turkey & cranberry. Reminds me of the holidays, fall, comfort food and sandwiches for left overs (without the bread)! Seems like the almonds will give it that perfect crunch and add some buttery-nuttiness to the mix. I can’t wait to try this flavor, as it sounds a bit on the sweeter side – satisfying both my sweet-tooth and my meat-tooth!
