Why You’ll Love It

Smoky and slightly sweet, Tanka Bar Slow Smoked Original is tender and delicious. When we started working on the recipe for Tanka Bar, we were trying to meld authentic Native ingredients and flavors into a bar that would honor our past, yet fit how we live today. We started with the traditional recipe for wasna and thought to modernize it. We tried all sorts of ideas to improve on wasna, but each time we added something to the mix, we went further away from what we intended. It could not be improved! We came full circle to see that the traditional flavors of meat with fruit were perfect. Tanka Bar is simply great.

Tanka Buffalo Meat & Cranberry Bites

I enjoyed this very much. It is nice to grab a quick snack that isn't just sweet, but has some good protein and flavors with it.

- Pat

Insanely good

These are so good! We are repeat buyers of these little pieces of protein yummyness.

This is a great snack item for Paleo eaters...it's well spiced and flavorful

- Chef Lisa Cheri

Buffalo jerky

Amazing and delicious!

- Leisa

Top Notch Jerky

From the texture to the flavor, I love everything about this jerky. It's so filling I can eat half a bag for lunch. The cranberry taste is just present without being overpowering.

- Lina


This jerky was not salty or tough like most jerky. Delicious flavor and texture.

- Leigh

Buffalo Meat and Cranberry Bites

The Tanka Buffalo Meat and Cranberry Bites are amazing! I did some price checking and Thrive Market is the best price around.

- Mary Anne

Great product!

My husband and I both love. Just wish they came in a bigger size.

- Erin


I didn't know how these were going to taste but they were pleasantly surprising and delicious!! I will order more.

- Mel

Best snack ever!

This is my absolute "go to" for healthy, consciously raised, protein packed, best tasting snack ever! Love this stuff and my whole family is hooked! 6 packs is not enough I'll need to upgrade to the next quantity offered- haha! I found myself hiding them from my family :). Love to keep these in my car when I'm in a pinch for food or pick the kids up from school and they need something NOW! The best part is the mission statement from the company which totally resonates with me

- Carmel


Loved these bites! We tried the sampler pack Thrive sells and these were by far the best!

- Jeanette


Wow!!! Great taste...had to stop myself from eating all in one sitting!!!

- KC

low sugar jerky

Most jerkys are full of sugar - this one only has sweetened cranberries and it is also not too salty -very

- Susan

Perfect snack for business trips

Eating Paleo isn't always easy when flying internationally and spending a week or 2 in a foreign place. I bought this flavor hoping to satisfy my desire for sweet and savory...I wasn't disappointed! These were my "go to" snacks first thing every morning and I was satiated until lunch time every day! When experiencing jet lag I often find it difficult to eat properly and these snacks allowed me to settle in nicely without feeling like I was starving myself. I'm definitely buying again!

- Heather


These are like gold to me. They are hard to find. But I found them here on Thrive! Yay!!! They are the perfect quick protein snack. Perfect size little square bites. The cranberries are harmony with the bison. So good.

- Kimberly


This stuff is just amazing. Unfortunately I ate the entire bag (3 servings) within 24 hours of receiving my thrive order. I am going for the ounce bar next time!

- Laura

Nom yom!

Soooo addictively delicious! I only wish it said on the package what the bison ate and how they lived. (Aka are the animals pastured?)

- Bethany

Different and good

A little strange getting used to the texture of this, not something I'd had before. Good flavor, great snack, very tender and fresh.

- Valerie

My Favorite Jerky

I have loved packing this product along for all of my adventures of a long time. The absolute best airport and hiking food I have found. So I was pretty much doing back-flips when I found it for this price. I love supporting such a wonderful company with great values. But fair warning, once you go buffalo you can never go back to boring grass-feed beef!

- Rachel

LOVE this snack

Great protein filled snack. No garbage ingredients. Tastes delicious!

- Maria

Tasty but have to keep in fridge

I bought these as a snack to keep in my car but didn't realize they were "Refrigerate after opening" until after I got them. Wish I knew that ahead of time!

- Catherine

Great texture and taste

These were great for our road trip, The texture was ideal, softer than jerky, but firmer than the Epic bars (which are too soft for my liking). Husband and I both enjoyed them.

- Sarah


Compared to the EPIC brand, the Tanka brand is saltier, with less cranberries evident. They are good and I use them as a camping/travel food.

- Mark

Surprisingly tasty, and great for travel

I haven't had great experiences with jerky - most of it you could break your teeth on and the flavor can be nasty. These were a really pleasant surprise; I opened the bag and it smelled like a mild bacon. That's pretty much what it tastes like, with the texture of a firm meatball, kind of like bacon that caught a little jam (the cranberries). They are great to take traveling, easy to eat, not messy and they give a really good boost of energy without any kind of sugar crash.
