Review of Gluten-Free Tanka Bars

The Bottom Line

I recently discovered Tanka Bars at my local grocery. First I was wowed by the flavor of the gluten-free 100% Natural Buffalo Cranberry Bar. I was further wowed by the Tanka Bar nutritional profile.

Based on a natural Native American food, Tanka Bars are not only gluten-free -- they also have no MSG and unlike many beef products, the 100% natural buffalo contains no hormones. With an easy to pack Tanka Bar in tow, now I can count on getting a healthy, snack-sized serving of lean, natural protein in a delicious, low carb energy bar. Nice!
