About This Brand

EPIC products don’t just focus on good taste—they also want their foods to nourish the body and mind, while also being conscious of the land and of the animals that contribute to their line of products. The story behind the EPIC brand EPIC was founded by Taylor Collins and Katie Forrest after they both became vegetarians, oddly enough. They both assumed that a healthy diet was entirely plant-based and that the best sources of protein came from soy or other highly processed options. They ate a lot of carbs and very few fats, just like nutritional experts in the media advised, and they also tried going vegan and doing a raw food diet. It didn’t exactly work as hoped since their diets only made them sick with gastrointestinal distress and other inflammatory ailments. Taylor and Katie didn’t know how to maximize their wellness, so they looked for answers in the whole foods diets that our human ancestors consumed. This is also known as the Paleo diet, which focuses on foods that...

Why You’ll Love Hickory Smoked Uncured Bacon Bits

Yep, bacon is having a moment (or has been and the health food industry just caught on). After all, it is pretty hard to resist that salty, smoky flavor that makes breakfasts complete, perfects a turkey sandwich, or tops a mouthwatering burger. Well now people can enter bacon bliss any time of the day with EPIC Uncured Hickory Bacon Bites.

Bacon isn’t normally considered a portable snack that’s easy to enjoy without a mess, but EPIC has changed that! Think of these tasty morsels like beef jerky, but this time with an irresistible flavor that will remind you of weekend brunches or robust dishes. EPIC Uncured Hickory Bacon Bites come in a resealable bag, making it easy to carry them around and enjoy when the mood strikes. It’s a wonderful snack that’s Paleo-friendly, soy-free, gluten-free, and high in Omega fatty acids and protein. People can also feel good about opening a bag of EPIC Uncured Hickory Bacon Bites, as they have high standards for the humane treatment of their livestock.

About EPIC

Because EPIC acknowledges quality care and treatment of animals, they strive to set industry standards and source meats from ranchers who give their livestock the most humane treatment. They also believe that animals should live pasture-centered lives—one where turkeys forage, pigs wallow, and buffalos roam. Nature intended for animals to live this way, and their food production does not interrupt this natural flow.

Aside from recognizing the value of sustainable and responsible animal welfare practices, EPIC foods taste amazing. They offer lightly smoked animal protein, savory nuts, and chewy dehydrated fruits. Products like EPIC Uncured Hickory Bacon Bites come out more savory, tender, and flavor-forward than traditional beef jerky—plus they don’t include the high carb and sugar content that is often found in other comparable options. For Paleo eaters and bacon lovers alike, EPIC Uncured Hickory Bacon Bites are a delicious choice that treats animals with dignity and respect.

The nutritional value of EPIC Uncured Hickory Bacon Bites

These tasty bacon bites have such an intense flavor because of the ingredients inside—and they contain absolutely no artificial flavorings or mystery additives! Just natural goodness straight from the farm. EPIC Uncured Hickory Bacon Bites are made with uncured bacon (which is made up of pork, water, sea salt, vinegar, and celery powder) as well as all natural pork, and that’s it! Every time a bag is opened, it’s like you’re reaching in and grabbing freshly fried bacon right from the skillet.

EPIC Uncured Hickory Bacon Bites don’t just taste wonderful—they’re also high in Omega fatty acids and rich in protein, making them a healthy option that the family will love. Take a glance at the nutritional value inside and notice that one serving offers 10 percent of the daily fat intake. While the discussion around fats is often misunderstood, Thrive Market is here to spread the word and educate others that fats are actually quite good for the body and is what allows people to have energy!

Omega-3 fatty acids are excellent fats to incorporate into the diet—these are ones found in salmon, eggs, flaxseed oil, and foods like EPIC Uncured Hickory Bacon Bites. It’s definitely a good idea to stay away from saturated fats like the ones found in fatty beef, butter, cheese, and dairy products; in fact, eliminating those from the diet alone is a wonderful step towards improved heart health. But to really make an impact, it’s vital to consume Omega-3 fatty acids, which lower triglyceride levels.

Triglycerides exist as fat in the blood, providing the body with energy (hence the reason that cutting out all fat could never be an option). The problem it causes, however, is when excess triglycerides go unused, stay in the body, and then end up stored in places throughout the body, leading to weight gain and even obesity. When this goes ignored, high triglyceride levels can put one at the risk for heart disease. Although, by consuming Omega-3 fatty acid-rich foods can lower these levels and improve overall heart health.

High-protein snacks like EPIC Uncured Hickory Bacon Bites are also an amazing addition to the diet for very much the same reason—protein is vital to the human body. It makes up the hair, nails, bones, muscles, cartilage, blood, and skin, and also has a high satiating power—meaning that it contributes to that full feeling after a big meal.

Delicious

- Barbara Hendricks

not crispy or crunchy but tasty

The words bacon bits bring to my memory salty, crispy, crunchy pieces of bacon. so these are different than what I thought they would be. The flavor is good but they are more chewy and soft in texture

- colleen

They actually taste like bacon!

Big, meaty chunks that don't taste like a salt-lick!

- Jennifer
