I’m so stoked for Stupid Easy Paleo’s first-ever giveaway! I’ve recently hit a couple sweet milestones – 10,000 fans on FaceBook, launching the new website and web app to name a couple – and it’s time to reward you for your loyalty.
A few months back, Taylor from EPIC Bar sent me some samples of their turkey, beef and bison meaty bars to try, and I was instantly hooked. You can read my review here. The short version: they are awesome. We decided to team up for a giveaway, and here are the details:
1st Prize = 3 cases of EPIC Bars (12 bars per case, $102 retail value)
2nd Prize = 2 cases of EPIC Bars (12 bars per case, $68 retail value)
3rd Prize = 1 case of EPIC Bars (12 bars per case, $34 retail value)
We’ll also include some fun swag from EPIC for each winner.
The contest will be open from Sunday June 16, 2013 (12 pm PT) through Sunday June 23, 2013 (12 pm PT). Winners will be notified within 24 hours of the contest closing.
I’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.
What 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!!
