Thank you for making our project a reality! A few things need to happen before we can kick off production and fulfillment.
First, Kickstarter needs to transfer over the funds so we can purchase everything we need to fulfill the rewards - if any info has changed with your card since you pledged, please update this ASAP! This will help speed along the disbursement process, in turn allowing us to get the equipment we need sooner, in turn allowing your Carnivore Bars to get to you as soon as possible.
Second, we have to find out your shirt sizes, bar preferences, and where to ship your order. We’ll send out a survey via an awesome tool called BackerKit to collect this information. It’s important to respond to your survey as quickly as you can since we need this information in order to fulfill your rewards.
You don’t need to create a BackerKit account to fill out your survey. When you receive the email (from firstname.lastname@example.org) with the survey, click the survey link to respond. Answer the questions about your reward preferences, provide shipping information, and purchase add-on items if you like (at special discounted rates for Kickstarter pledgers only!)
After you respond to your survey, you can go back later and change your responses at any time before we close the surveys and get our final counts. If you need to review your information or pledge status, you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or requesting your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit project page at https://thecarnivorebar.backerkit.com.
If you used your Facebook credentials to log in to your Kickstarter account, the BackerKit survey is sent to the email address you use for your Facebook account. If you haven't received your link after a few days (we hope to get them all out by Tuesday, April 16th at the latest) you may also find this FAQ link helpful.

We're in the last few hours of the Kickstarter. Thank you all so much! We were blown away by the community support helping us spreading the word! We're so excited to bring this product to market. Merry Ellen and I can't wait till our own pantry has a little stockpile of these bars. In the meantime, if you want a little bit more of a detailed story about who I am, my personal health journey just posted over at meatheals.com - go check it out.
Nutrition Facts (Unofficial)

So we have nutrition facts. Sort of.
Unfortunately the proximate test, on the fat/protein/carbs needed to be rerun, so small changes can be expected in the calories and the percentages between fat and protein. Our current percentage of calories from fat/protein is 82.6%/17.4%. The rerun of the test and the final numbers will hopefully be out next week. That said, we wanted to go ahead and publish what we have before the end of the campaign.
Vitamin C did not show up. Our result was <6mg/100mg, so there is a chance that there are trace amounts, but not detectable as of yet with the current test. We have to meet the USDA guidelines for cooking this product in order to be able to sell it, and that means reaching 145°F internal temperature. So we probably overdid it and cooked out any potential vitamin C. We'll see if we can do it differently but if not we're still pretty happy with the rest of the data.
Merry Ellen stitched this estimate together from preliminary tests. So here are our unofficial anticipated results:
Thank you for your support!
How the Carnivore Bar is Different from Jerky, Epic Bar, & Pemmican

We've been getting a lot of questions from the community about how The Carnivore Bar is different from jerky, The Epic Bar, or pemmican. We've also been getting requests to show the texture of the bar more up-close, so we did.
We're Funded! Thank You!

Wow, we’re fully funded! Thank You! We are so excited to be able to bring this project to market, and we couldn’t have done it without each and every one of you. Extra special thanks to Mikhaila & Jordan Peterson for helping us spread the word. It’s amazing to see this coming full circle, because the Petersons are also how we found out about the carnivore diet, and therefore why we are making this bar and solving this problem. Thank You!!!!
So welcome Peterson Fans, Instagram fans and all our new friends and backers! This is a community project. We invite you to be involved as we become a full-fledged company. Feel free to offer suggestions and give your feedback. Your opinion matters to us. We aspire to deliver a continuously improving product, every batch we make. Thank you for believing in us.
We plan on doing our utmost to make this company a success, and to deliver a product you can count on when you need it. My wife Merry Ellen is 100% behind me in this project and has done a terrific job at promoting this bar on social media. I could not have done this without her. Though I can never adequately repay her or any of you that have placed your faith in me, fortunately I can make you the best zero carb meat bar that has ever existed. And that’s exactly what I intend to do.
- Nutrition facts will be released as early as tomorrow afternoon or as late as Monday. We are waiting on vitamin A and C testing because I insisted that we be compliant with both old and new standards of USDA/FDA nutritional labeling.
- Shelf stability testing is delayed because a real time test would not provide the kind of shelf life numbers that we think the product is capable of. We hope to get more than 5 years.
- I’m submitting my story to MeatHeals.com later tonight and once approved we’ll link to that in a project update. I’ve given the spark notes version on The Carnivore Cast as well as our Story Video, but for those of you that would like a more in depth-version of my story I think #meatheals is where that belongs.
We owe you backers everything. There’s no way to express just how humbled and grateful we are to have this project come to fruition. This is not just a dream to us. It feels like we’re breaking out of jail and being given our freedom again. As modern humans we take for granted the ubiquitous nature of food. When you suddenly find that you can’t eat that stuff, it feels like you’re crossing an inexhaustible desert where every potential food might be contaminated. It feels like finally we might be able to get back to our normal lives, and take our own safe food, anywhere we want to be. And now thanks to your support, so will you.
