So you're chewing thoughtfully on this meaty and a little bit sweety bar. The roasted turkey flavor, the hint of breakfast sausage with a bit of maple, the fruity deliciousness of blueberries, it all is working and clicking in your head, and that's awesome. Each bite has a little bit of toothiness from chia seeds and even a bit of ground flaxseeds. Just enough salt, just enough of EVERYTHING. Wilde Snacks out of "Boldr" Colorado is responsible for this bar of slow-baked bliss.
The best part about this bar is the flavors combining into a sum greater than their parts. It's not just a turkey bar; it's a breakfasty blast of yum. Tangy/salty bacon, sweet blueberries, aromatic maple, and a duo of ancient grains like corn and quinoa give it toothiness.
When I tried one I attempted to slow down in order to have a few bites left after all of my notetaking was done, but I failed. It was too good. Each bite led to another and another and then the bar was no more.
This was the intent of Wilde Snacks: to make irresistible yet nutritious Paleo friendly meat bars, more diverse in flavors than what was already available. Sure, there are really good meat bars out there, filled with great ingredients. But some of them are rather simple and intense, flavor-wise. Wilde Snacks has made the meat bar friendly and darn near addictive.
Without going completely poetic here, it's the combination of superfoods, real ingredients, and love that makes these bars nearly melt in your mouth. It's like breakfast, but portable and convenient.
First, there's organic meat—turkey, in this bar—that comes from nothing but free-range turkeys that were raised without hormones or antibiotics. Then comes the ancient ingredients like seeds and dried fruits for extra flavor and crunch. Veggies follow, and spices. The whole thing is baked. Sloooooowly. What results is a dense but soft bar that will satiate your cravings and quiet that rumbling tummy.
It might also keep you away from having something less ideal, like something from a vending machine or a protein bar with processed junk in it, even if the bar is kind of sort of nutritious. Wilde Snacks is here for you.
Turkey meat is nutritionally quite impressive. It’s loaded with protein, low in fat, rich in vitamins, minerals, and healthy omega fats. Here are some of the most awesome things about turkey:
Chia seeds are made for growth - just remember those Chia pet ads from the 1980s? Yep, me too. Chias are one of the only plant-based foods with Omega-3 fatty acids. That's good for your cells, your tissues, and your heart. Awesome.
Blueberries, oh how they are wonderful. A little bit tart, a lot of bit of antioxidants. Against the other flavors in the bar they are perfectly balanced.
"What began as the belief that portable protein can and should be both palatable and low in sugar, turned into a whole new culinary innovation. With our unique process, which allows us to use premium lean meats that are humanely raised, we created the first ever slow-baked meat snack and redefined the traditional idea of a protein bar."
Good question, and one easy to answer: no grains, no syrups, no weird stuff. Wilde Snacks bars are slow-baked, made from real food like turkey or chicken and fruit and seeds. They're delicious, unlike some jerkies that take some chewing power and a little bit of habit to fall in love with.
