SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - You'll soon be able to Tanka up at Whole Foods. The chain is adding Tanka bars. They're energy bars made from bison meat and cranberries. It's based on a traditional Native American recipe.
Tanka bars are produced on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota by Native American Natural Foods. University of Florida junior Michael Watson is hooked. He says his aunt gave him a box for Christmas. Many of his frat brothers are fans, too. Watson adds the bison bars are "a very American product."
