Snack Spotlight: EPIC Maple Bacon Pork Cracklings
MAPLE BACON PORK CRACKLINGS
A wholesome version of an iconic American snack food, our pork skins are created using traditional methods inspired by our grandparent’s generation. A blend of organic, non-GMO, pastured, and antibiotic free pork combined with simple seasonings are the foundation for this simple, yet nourishing approach to creating enchanting food that is both time tested and trusted by consumers.
What is a crackling? A crackling is a fried pork skin taken from the shoulder region of a hog. The shoulder skin is a tougher texture and has less subcutaneous fat when compared to the back and belly. As a result, when cooked, this part of the hog has a harder and crispier bite than a pork “rind”. Lastly, cracklings contain small pieces of meat that adhere to the skin. Unlike pork rinds, this adds extra protein to your new favorite snack!

About the Company
Oddly enough, the roots of EPIC were planted shortly after Katie and I became vegetarians. We wrongly believed that a “clean diet” was plant based and in order to replenish our bodies after hard workouts, we consumed large amounts of soy and other highly processed proteins.
To compound the stress we were putting on our systems, we followed the advice of sports nutrition “experts” and prescribed to a diet that was high in carbohydrates and low in fat. As a result, we were making ourselves unintentionally sick with gastrointestinal distress and a myriad of inflammatory ailments.
Not knowing what to do, we decided to go vegan and when things got worse, we decided to follow a raw food diet.
