100% Sugar Free Uncured Bacon & Pork Epic Bar

What it is and why I eat them.....

The Uncured Bacon and Pork Epic Bar is a zero carb protein bar. This is the only zero carb protein bar I have found. It's got 15 grams of protein and NO CARBS! That is exciting stuff. I eat them because I'm on a low carb diet. Well at the time of writing this post, I'm actually off the wagon with the low carb thing, but I'm working on getting back to it. There are other flavors of Epic Bars, but they have carbs in them. 

The flavor isn't bad. It doesn't taste like bacon though. It has a mild pork flavor. The stores keep this in the jerky section, but it's not really a jerky texture. It's hard to describe the texture, but it's similar to SPAM. Because of that, I was skeptical about eating them, but a friend of mine suggested them and I knew she wouldn't lead me astray. 

These are great to have in the car for emergency snacks while out grocery shopping. They are also good to pack into a backpack for a hike. I eat one of these every morning at work as a snack. It's hard to find low carb snacks that pack well and last a long time so I'm very happy to have these! 

Where to get them....

I've found these at Whole Foods and Natural Grocers. You can also get them from Amazon and Thrive Market. They come in a pack of 12. At Whole Foods, they've been on sale for $2.99 in Bend, Oregon. The regular price is $3.50 I think. At Natural Grocer's I've been seeing them for $2.55, but they rarely have the Uncured Bacon and Pork. Amazon was $28.99 for the box of 12 the day I wrote this post. They are eligible for Prime. At Thrive Market, you can get them for $27.95 at the time I wrote this post. If you spend $49 or more at Thrive, you get free shipping. They also send out coupon codes pretty regularly. For example, I got an email today for $10 off a $50 purchase. You also get 15% off your first order! If you sign up by clicking the links in this post, I'll get $25 if you decide to join Thrive Market
