Why You’ll Love It

Smoky and slightly sweet, Tanka Bites Slow Smoked Original are tender and delicious. At only 70 calories per serving, Tanka Bites deliver a slow, powerful protein punch by mixing two primary ingredients: low-fat, high-energy American buffalo meat and tasty cranberries. This combination is no accident because Tanka products are based on wasna, the original Native trail food that combines meat with fruit.

Good but expensive

These are good, but I think they’re pretty pricey for what you get. Don’t think I’ll buy them again.

I was searching for a new meat bar after finding out that Epic was bought by General Mills. Tanka bars are better tasting and aren’t of questionable quality like Epic!

The Perfect Delicious Snack!

These bars are a perfect on-the-go snack with ingredients you can feel good about. A delicious and better choice than traditional beef jerky. I've already recommended them to many of my friends and I'll be loading up more!

Delicious Peace of Mind

Tanka is an exceptional company with an important mission. I am proud to support the work of Oglala Lakotas on the Pine Ridge Reservation, SD, and their deep commitment to helping the People, the Buffalo and Mother Earth. Purchasing these bars rekindles ancient traditions of grazing Bison on their native lands, and supporting Native American producers. Their products are sustainable, minimally processed with care and respect, and nourishing of mind, body and spirit. Thank you, Thrive, for carrying and supporting Tanka.

Tastes great, good texture. (But the smaller bites are better and in a big bag! .. I don’t think I’ve seen them on thrive... yet...)

My kids eat them

I like these as a less-processed, protein-rich alternative to typical snack bars. My kids (2 and 4) actually eat them! They do contain cranberries and I just wish they were lower in sugar.
