  • EPIC Bars?

    https://epicbar.com/products.html

    Has anyone tried them? They sound really solid nutritionally.

    I'm wondering in particular how salty they are... I prefer a slightly sweeter jerky, and when I tried Steve's paleo stix (link here: Original PaleoStix ) I thought they were good but just a bit salty for my taste.

    My friend and I tried them. They're a little weird, but you'd probably like them if you like a slightly sweet jerky. They aren't very salty. The buffalo was our favorite, with the turkey coming in second. The beef was a little too dry. I wouldn't eat them every day, but they're good in a pinch or to take on a trip or something like.

      Personally, I like the Bison flavor. I think you will too if you like jerky a little sweet.

        I can't stand paleostix, taste great but man the burps suck. I do however love his jerky, I've got about 100$ worth of the chicken jerky in my draw here at work haha.

          Thanks guys. So in taste/texture, is it more protein-bar-like or more jerky-like? I'm looking for something that'll give me a little bit of a sweet, dessert-y fix, so if it's just straight up jerky im not going to bother with it.

            I don't think it's dessert tasting. The fruit in the bars makes them a bit sweet, but the overall taste is meat-y/savory over sweet.

              If these didn't contain sugar, I might be more inclined to try them! Now the Paleo Stix look delicious and I am a SALT LOVER! ha ha - thanks for the snack tip!

                The sugar is from the fruit most likely. I wish they didn't have the fruit myself... I hate fruit, especially dried.

                  This thread has already been made, but..

                  They're far from a treat. Definently a solid Paleo snack. Low amount of sugar, all from dried fruit. GF Beef / Bison, they taste good IMO, and they're very convenient. Shelf life of roughly 9 months according to EPIC.

                    the epic bars are really tasty. They're not like jerky at all - very moist, I think. I usually don't eat on bike rides but one day I sort of started to bonk and I was glad I had this with me. The only negative I can think of is that it had a little packet in there to help keep it from going bad, I guess and I was really wolfing that bar down so I nearly got that packet in my mouth too - yuk!!

                    I actually talked to one of the reps at a bike race in Austin a few months ago, that's where I got the bars. It seems like a good company that I don't mind supporting from time to time.

                    I think for long ride fueling purposes, I would still prefer pemmican from us wellness or maybe even trying some of allen lim's recipe's but these bars are very tasty and about 1 million times better an option than a clif bar or some sugary gel.
