Updated: Tanka Bars: Ain’t no Bull, It’s Buffalo!
Mmm… meat candy. That’s how I would describe the Tanka Bar. It’s a jerky-type bar made of buffalo and dried cranberries. Flavor-wise, it’s got a sweet and savory combination that I really love.
I also love the small amount of ingredients used to make them: Buffalo, Dried Cranberries (cranberries, sugar), Water, Salt & less than 2% of Flavorings, Red Pepper, Granulated Garlic, Granulated Onion, Lactic Acid Starter Culture.
They are surprisingly low calorie, and make a great breakfast or afternoon snack. They are small and compact, and perfect to pack on a camping or hiking trip.
Tanka…What a funny little name. What does it mean? From the Tanka website: “In Lakota, Tanka means large or great. It changes depending on how it is used when spoken. What Tanka means to me is a little different. When I see people doing good for themselves and their families, that is Tanka.
When I see people saying good words and backing it up with good actions — when there is no separation in someone’s belief and their reality — that is Tanka.”
The only thing not so “Tanka” is the price of the bar. 😉 They retail for about $3 apiece. However, if you use the promo code CAVEGRRL during checkout when you shop the Tanka store, you’ll get 15% off on REGULARLY-priced items. The code is not valid on specials and is good until June 30th!
You can follow Tanka Bar on twitter here and find them on Facebook here.
Check out the Brooklyn Jerky Company. They make 3 brands (original, korean bbq, sichuan ginger) and the ingredients are meat, water, and the seasonings. The meat is antibiotic free and grass fed. And, the taste is amazing. Give them a try.
