We are excited to announce that Tanka will be featured in the September edition of The Costco Connection, which is distributed to more than 8 million people every month.

Reporter Hana Medina visited Tanka headquarters to interview the team, learn about our mission and spent time seeing the buffalo herd on our home reservation of Pine Ridge.

Ms. Medina has worked for Costco for 10 years and has been a reporter for The Costco Connection for a year. She has a family history with the company -- her father worked there for 30 years, her mother for 14 years and her husband Andy has worked for Coscto 12 years as well.

Our team really enjoyed their time with Ms. Medina and we look forward to the story. In fact we know that she fueled up for her writing assignment with one of our Tanka Apple Orange Peel Sticks! She posted the below photo on our Facebook page.
