Reformed tobacco product wins Tanka Bar Facebook contest
We started a weekly contest on our Facebook fan page that takes place every Wednesday. We coined it the "Get over the Hump" contest to give everyone a little boost in the middle of their week. Winners receive various Tanka products.

Last week an interesting character named Ciggy Buttz won our contest by being the eighth "person" to comment on our status update. Ciggy is part of the Northern California Indian Development Council's Tobacco Program -- a program that introduces "students to the dangers associated with the abuse of commercial tobacco in order to prevent future generations from becoming nicotine addicts."

Ciggy gives tips on how to quit nicotine, apparently sings karaoke and "if he really likes you, he may even share his chocolate."

Congratulations Ciggy and thanks for playing!
