Epic Bars Review

Print Friendly

DSC_0247I’ll cut to the chase with the quick version: Epic Bars. YUM. Get some.

Now, for the details.

The best way to describe Epic Bars is like tasty, meaty bars with a hint of fruit for sweetness and nuts for crunch and texture. It reminded me of taking what I love about jerky packs – the meat, fruit and nut trinity – and rolling it all into one convenient, hand-held option.

Besides using high quality meats – 100% grassfed beef and bison for example – Epic Bars have made a conscious effort to make these bars perfect for the Paleo crowd with minimally-processed ingredients: the bacon used in the bison bar has no nitrates / nitrites added, for example. As you’d come to expect, they are free of dairy, gluten and grains as well. Win. Each bar has at least 11 grams of protein, a good dose of healthy fat and is pretty low in carbs. No funky whey protein isolates or frankenfood here.

Okay, so how do they taste?

Really damn good.

DSC_0241What impressed me the most is how distinct the flavors are…there’s nothing worse than picking up bars of different varieties only to find that they taste pretty much the same (Lara Bars and 50 Shades of Dates, anyone?).

Thankfully, with Epic Bars, that wasn’t the case. Bison with Bacon + Cranberry is decidedly smoky with a hint of barbeque flavor. The Beef with Habanero + Cherry has a just the right bit of spice from the peppers. Finally, I think my favorite was Turkey with Almond + Cranberry because it’s spiced with warm notes of cumin and coriander. The flavors are wisely put together and well-balanced.

Check out the map to find a retailer near you or simply order them from the Epic Bars website directly.

Now if every convenience store in America starts to carry these, THAT would be amazing!!

      Hi Janine…I don’t believe they are available in the UK (yet). I’ll have to ask Taylor and get back to you.

      Hi Janine…I heard back from Taylor, the owner of EPIC Bars. He says, “We have so many people asking for it there but shipping is just too expensive for us right now. Hopefully we will figure out how to ship to the UK in a cost effective way soon.” Hope that helps :)

    I tried a few sample packs of the Epic bars based on your recommendation and they were great! I am hooked. Really nice job on the site! I am also addicted to you slow cooked scrambled eggs.

    Is there any where in Canada you can get these? Or more specifically British Columbia? :) my husband loves protein bars without all the crap in them, I know he will love these! Plus I will be a hero for finding them. :)

      Hi Darleena! Recently I asked Taylor from Epic the same question and he said they’re currently working on figuring out how to get the bars to Canada and keep the shipping costs reasonable. Stay tuned :) p.s. I LOVE BC…was just looking at photos of a bike trip I took to Whistler a few years back.

        Oh I hope they do soon! I literally live miles away from the US (but by water not land) and it’s SO frustrating to not be able to get my hands on these!

    I want to try the Bison bar but it has brown sugar listed in the ingredients. I wonder how much sugar is in each one, seems high on the ingredient list but I’ve heard that when bacon is cured in something there usually isn’t much remaining at the end of the process.

      Hi Kristen…send an email to the folks at Epic bar. They’re super responsive and I bet they could help you out further.
