Is this a new flavor? This is super cool! If you like the “beef jerky” style of paleo protein bar, you might be searching for more flavor variety because…. well, how many flavors of meat are there, right?
Tanka bar already makes a cranberry bar and spicy blend jerky, but now you can another flavor option to your arsenal: Apple Orange Peel. It has cranberries, apple and orange peel with spices like cinnamon, onion and garlic powder.
It may seem a little strange at first to combine all of those flavors, but that’s what makes these snacks so interesting and filling. By adding variety to your paleo bars, you’re more likely to enjoy your snacks and stick to a healthy eating plan. Spices are especially good for this, and this particular bar has several (see ingredient list below).
Also note that if you’re concerned about eating meat that is hormone-free, nitrite-free, soy free and doesn’t contain MSG, you’re in the right place. You don’t have to worry about any of those here.
And there’s no gluten or dairy, while we’re on the topic of stuff that these bars don’t have.
They are low in calories at 70 calories per serving. However, this also means that you won’t easily be able to used them as a meal replacement… unless you eat a few.
That said, they can be a terrific natural and healthy meat source as part of a meal if you have fruit, raw veges or a salad. The tank bar gives you something extra to chew on that’s hearty and substantial.
