“Dude this stuff is awesome!! I would like to order 10 more bars. If it’s possible I’ll need them before the 28th of this month. Let me know if you think that would be possible. ” – 5/8/16 – Grand Forks, ND
“Shipping via priority mail was fast; I received my order within a few days of placing it. The product itself is a pleasing balance of subtle flavors. I may be insensitive to sweets, but I found the honey, fig and cherry flavors to be quite mild, well balanced, and complementary to the meat and fats. Having had traditional protein-fat-only pemmican in the past, I’d say this product is more of a complete meal in a bar. Can’t speak to my energy levels since I’m saving most of my order for an upcoming trip, but I’m confident this will be a better alternative to standard nut-based energy bars.” – 5/1/2016 – Alexandria, VA
“First time trying pemmican and I gotta say after this I’m no longer afraid of it. Flavor wise I think it needs a little something more. It’s by no means bad, but I’m a super taster and I think maybe a little more sweet or a little more salt. I’m not to sure, but a little more something could really set it off. For survival alone, it’s on point. The sweet is subtle. The smell is familiar, I can smell the honey but I can’t quite put my finger on the other scents. Smells like something I’ve had before, but I can’t remember what it was. It did OK in transit. It’s already pretty hot down here in west TN and these samples have started to get a tad bit too soft. They’ve stiffened back up now that they are inside though. Overall it’s some pretty darn good stuff and with a few tweaks it could easily be amazing stuff.” – 5/21/16 – Memphis – TN
“Shipment was great! Very fast and the pemmican is totally alright to eat. It’s a travel food! I’m not so keen on the sweetness. If you want just beef and tallow, this isn’t the best option. If you want the beef and tallow and some fruity sweetness, this is right on the money! I’m getting used to the sweetness and the 6 oz brick is lasting me throughout the week. Great communication with the seller. Even while sweet, at 1oz a day it’s not going to throw off the sugar count too much. I’m trying to keep it under 20 a day so brings the sugar carbs (other carbs not included) to about 5 a day.” – 4/19/2016 – Lancaster, PA
In response to the the review suggesting “a little something more” we really don’t want to add more salt that could make people more thirsty in situations where they only have the water they can carry. More sweet would further discourage people on ketogenic diets from trying the product. We think the best solution is to add more sour cherries and reduce the amount of figs so the proportion of fruit in the final product remains the same. We were a little too conservative with the sour cherries in the initial product since these little things pack a serious punch and can easily over power the other flavors. Preliminary taste tests demonstrate that a little more cherry in the mix helps to enhance the over all flavor without throwing it out of balance. We’ll let you know when the extra cherry flavor becomes available for purchase.
