Our feral boar is as wild as the great state of Texas. As an invasive species, wild pigs are notorious for destroying agriculture and killing native species throughout the state. In some counties, local governments pay hunters to bring in wild boar carcasses in attempt to control the rapidly growing population. These nourishing animals are frequently disposed of and their delicious meat never utilized by humans.
In EPIC harmony, we decided to make use of this nourishing meat and help control the population of feral hogs. By doing so, we are helping restore native habitats and provide customers with high quality wild game meat. Eat how you live, wild & free!
For the true, true stories behind this incredible foodstuff, read on.
Love pork? Not sure if raising it is the best thing for the planet? I hear ya. Luckily there are a few options nowadays to avoid the mess and unsustainability of pig-farming. This seriously amazing Wild Boar bar from EPIC is one of the places to start. Take a Texas animal, lean and wild like game should be, and spice it up with simple seasonings like pepper and garlic, then add the unctuous punch of bacon to finish the deal.
I'm a fan of wild game and it is not just because of the sustainability. The flavors are intense, concentrated, and, well, "wild". This is how meat should be, how it used to be before factory farming was loading up our meat with grains and things that make them fat really quickly. Deer and wild boar are the next buffalo and wild-caught salmon in terms of general acceptance and accessibility. You heard it here first: EPIC is ahead of the curve, making wild boar a delicious thing you can slip in your gym bag, drawer, or pocket.
Why Wild Boar Epic Bar is so good for you
Nothing weird is added: no sweeteners, no preservatives, no colors. The wild boar meat is from Texas and the leanness means you are getting high-quality protein out the wazoo along with nutrition that comes from an animal that eats what it is supposed to, rather than what it is fed.
There's some uncured bacon in here, too, and that adds a complementary punch of richness as well as some salt. Pepper, celery salt, and a touch of dried cranberries are what makes this bar interesting and addicting.
Here are some of the amazing ingredients in Epic Bars:
Wild Texas Boar
The easiest way to describe wild boar, nutritionally, is to say, "it's pork, only better". The meat is leaner, more flavorful, and delicious. No additives, no feedlot hijinks, no strange dietary practices. Wild boar tastes sweeter than regular pork, and has no gamey or greasiness that seems to be associated with some wild game.
Wild boar is known as "Cinghale" in Italy and is a prized ingredient in a few famous pasta dishes, but here in the States it has barely made an oink. Modern and sustainability-driven hunters are going to change that, by hunting and harvesting the huge number of wild boars all over the southeastern U.S. Essentially there are far too many of them, just like deer in the Midwest, and eating them is a fabulous part of the overpopulation solution. That it is a tasty solution makes it even better.
How to enjoy Epic Bars:
Notice that perfectly formed packaging around the bar? How no air gets in and the bar is nice and super-tender? That's honestly pure brilliance - no need for one of those little pro-shelf-life packets, no chance of the bar drying out like old-fashioned jerky. This is a delicious meat bar, through and through. Tear open the package and enjoy. That's it.
