As I wrote about earlier, Onnit introduced a points system that rewards those who make frequent purchases. The system works by awarding you points for every order that you place with Onnit. It’s a little bit like a video game in the sense that you level up with the more points that you earn. When you reach a certain amount of points, you gain achievements and unlock free gear, exclusive discounts, and early access to new products.
Onnit is currently running a promotion that rewards buyers even further. For every order that you place, you will receive double the amount of points compared to what you would typically receive. There is no minimum purchase, either. So, even if you order a single Tanka Bar, you will receive double the points.
To sweeten the pot a little further, if you spend over $200, you will receive triple the amount of points. Onnit doesn’t really run too many promotions or offer that many coupons, so this is a great way to work towards saving money on any future orders, or to gain early access to some of the new products that are in the pipeline, such as the Onnit 180 Revitalization Drink Mix (Update 11/6/13: Onnit 180 Revitilization Drink Mix powder is now available on the Onnit website!)and Vanilla Hemp Force protein powder.
The double and triple points is currently live on the Onnit website. It will run until August 7, 2013 at 11:59 CST, which is 12:59AM EST or 9:59PM PST. If you’ve been waiting on ordering something, this could be the incentive you need to pull the trigger.
I got an email from Onnit the other day saying that the T+ testosterone booster supplement is now back in stock. Some people found it to be a little too sweet for their tastes, and it sounds like Onnit has listened to them. A new recipe is used and it now has an improved taste. I can’t comment on this as I haven’t tried the new and improved T+ but when I get my hands on some, I’ll post a review. If you haven’t yet tried it out, or if your current supply is running low, you can head over to the Onnit website and order some up.
Onnit has also created some bundle packs for those of you who like saving money. The Muscle Builder pack includes T+ and the Hemp Force protein powder at nearly $15 off. The 30 Days to Six Pack bundle has Bullet Proof Upgraded coffee, Bulletproof MCT Oil, two jars of Shroom Tech Sport, and T+ at a savings of nearly $30. There’s also a new non-T+ bundle called Powerful Pantry, which saves you $10 and includes a box of Tanka bars, a bottle of stevia sweetener, a jar of pink Himalayan salt, and a jar each of the new Walnut Almond Cashew butter and the Macadamia Cacao Cherry butter.
Tanka Bars are unlike any other bar you’ve eaten in your life, be it a granola, chocolate, or energy bar. What sets Tanka Bars apart from all the others is that they’re made with meat! It may sound like something new and completely foreign, but the recipe for Tanka Bars is based on a Lakota Indian recipe that’s centuries old, using fruit to actually preserve the dried meat in the bar.
Sounds a little strange, right? Well, things get a little stranger. The Tanka Bar recipe doesn’t include beef, chicken, or pork. Instead, the bars are made with organic buffalo meat! As I mentioned, the recipe is centuries old, originally based on the recipe for something called “wasna”. Traditionally, wasna was eaten by hunters and warriors with its protein providing a quick boost of energy. But that doesn’t mean that we too can’t benefit from this delicious and healthy snack in the 21st century.
Tanka Bars are free of a lot of things: gluten, nitrates, MSG, hormones, and dairy products. With an ever increasing amount of people developing allergies to both gluten and dairy products, it can oftentimes be difficult to find a snack that is free of both while still being tasty. A Tanka Bar meets this criteria.
So how exactly do they taste? Honestly, I’ve replaced all granola bars, energy bars, and chocolate bars with them. I’ve always been more of a salty over sweet person, opting for beef jerky over licorice any day. In a way, Tanka Bars satisfies both of those cravings. The meat is soft and smoky, the tart cranberries add a bit of sweetness, a dash of garlic and onion balance it out, and a blend of jalapeno and habanero peppers adds a welcome kick of heat. It’s like everything I look for in a snack food has been mashed together while amazingly, it somehow manages to taste delicious. I cannot recommend Tanka Bars enough!
