Reviews For Buffalo and Cranberry Bites - Slow Smoked Original
Based on 16 Reviews
Tender and tasty
I was not sure about how this stuff would be, so I ordered the bites first and really enjoyed them. They taste great, and I found the unexpected tender texture to be far more important than I would have imagined it to be.
Avoid anything from Epic (mushy baby food and terrible tasting), and go with either these, or the turkey sticks from The New Primal - Both are absolutely fantastic, and I am very picky and critical.
These bars are absolutely delicious. I take them as snacks when I hike or do exercise of any kind. I love the flavor and how moist they are.
My favorite snack!
Better than beef jerky
These bars are a great gluten free alternative to beef jerky. (When's the last time you to find a GF beef jerky at any gas station or convenience store? Never.) I keep a few in my car in case I skip or delay a meal.
These are a great Paleo/Allergy friendly snack. 4 in our family have tried them and will definitely be ordering again. Don't think "jerky" when you see this. It has a great balance of flavor and the texture is good too. Great snack sized source of protein.
Seriously the best jerky- so juicy, soft, and flavorful and I love the crasins in them. and it goes to a great cause too!!
Buffalo & Cranberry Bites - Slow Smoked Original
I heard about Tanka Bars from Dr. Mark Hyman. He said they were delicious, very satisfying & were a healthy treat. I have bought them for my husband and several other people and everyone loves them. Word is definitely spreading! I highly recommend this guilty pleasure...sans the guilt!

Tanka Bars are awesome, packed with protein and energy. If you think of them more as jerky then you may see them as less weird as you may. Meat bars might sound strange, but they seriously are great.
I pack these in my lunch box each day. They are delicious in my opinion and worth the cost considering the quality of the meat (no hormones, antibiotics, nitrites...). If you are a jerky eater you'll find the flavor of buffalo meat isn't too far off of beef, this simply is a bit fattier/moist, and the subtle cranberry plays well with the slightly smokey flavor of the protein.
Great taste, great price, and clean meat. What more can you ask for? I will be reordering this again.
Hard to not eat the whole package!
Wonderful combination of flavors. Felt like I was treating my body very well.
These meat snacks are the perfect snack for the paleo eater. Meat and berries. I love the smoked flavor to these, it makes the cranberries really stand out.
They are a bit high in price, but the protein in them makes it worth a little extra dough to get that powerful protein punch!

I keep getting confused as to why people think these might be gamey? Buffalo are generally farm raises. This means they will have a taste closer to beef than to venison or elk.
These meat bars are wonderfully delightful. The slow smoked flavor is magnificent with cranberry.

Tastes like barbecue
I was surprised at how much these bars tasted like meat that had come off a grill. I've had meat bars before, but not slow smoked, and it really adds a ton of flavor. I use meat bars as my snack so I'm not tempted to eat the wrong kind of food. I work out a lot and I try to eat clean protein like this that doesn't have a lot of sugar and fat. This is a great low calorie bar that's a nice alternative to normal protein bars. I'm a regular buyer of these at the great Thrive discount.

Big, meaty taste
I wanted a meat bar that packed a ton of protein and great flavor. This does the trick. They're made from buffalo meat, which I had heard could be gamy, but this is tender, moist meat that has a rich flavor. The cranberries make it even better, adding tang and sweetness without a rush of artificial sugar. I recommend these as a great snack that can tide you over until lunch or dinner and give you all natural ingredients for a low cal, low sugar experience.

I've made it a personal goal to try out most of the Tanka Bar varieties. They seem to have this perfect consistency between chewy and tough, and I always end up loving the delicious taste of the meat itself. I figure I'll try the various flavor varieties and find quite a few I'll enjoy - and that's what happened here. I'm surprised that cranberry and buffalo went so well together, but they did. They really complement each other, and it makes the bar just taste so savory. I'm glad I tried this flavor.
