Tanka Buffalo Bars: The Pros & Cons

Tanka Bars

If you have never heard of a Tanka Bar before, you may be surprised to find out it’s essentially just buffalo meat and dried cranberries. It’s not your typical protein bar.buy button

That said, it’s paleo and it is a good source of natural protein. Although it is more like a meat jerky that what you envision as a protein bar, it comes in convenient snack-sized packaging and it’s called a bar, so why not add it to the list? 😉

New: Also see their new Apple & Orange Peel Buffalo Jerky Bar.

This is a Good Bar for:

People who want a low-fat protein bar but who don’t mind the higher sodium levels.

This is Not a Good Bar for:

Vegetarians. (Sorry – I couldn’t resist!)

thumbs upActually, reading those ingredients makes me feel like a Bloody Mary. I bet the Tanka Bar would go great with one.

Anyway… besides being gluten-free, dairy-free and soy-free, it also does not contain nitrites, MSG or hormones. Way healthier than your plastic-wrapped highly-preserved beef jerky you see at the store.
