Sounds interresting - I would try them.
Never tried "tuna-jerky" but Salmon-jerky is good - Took home a pack last I was in Colorado.
But then again I'll eat almost anything . . . . :biggrin:

We've begun to calculate provisions for our next trip and we've bought some Pemmikan to try - I'll also try almost anything.

Just an FYI but the tuna in those pouches is not dried like jerky ,it just doesnt have all the excess water or oil that the cans have.The tuna Creations are marinated in diferent flavors. Streamweaver

Haven't tried the tuna yet but it's on my list (going to wait for the price to drop a bit - almost always high for new items).

What I'm really interested in is the pemmican. Is it the real thing? Power bars of ground jerky, dried berries, and suet?
I've been considering making some for quite a while, but never got around to doing it yet.
I've never seen it for sale, where did you get it?

It's produced by http://www.cathay.de (Maybe do a translation on it since it's in German). I bought it from http://www.globetrotter.de (http://www.globetrotter.de/de/shop/detail.php?mod_nr=ct_05003&artbez=Cathay+Pemmikan&k_id=1208&h_kat=Outdoor-K%FCche%2CBeh%E4lter&u_kat=Lebensmittel)
It's a mush in a bag and unfortunately not a bar but it looks like it's done pretty much the original way.

Darn, I had hoped those tuna products were dry like fried bacon bits.

I've used them. They're good if you like Tuna. Kind of heavy for the calories they provide but the protein is nice to have, and adding a "meat" to Liptons or mac and cheese sure makes me feel more satisfied.

On my last trip, eating some kind of dried pasta most every night, I figured out that one Tuna pack every three days is a good guideline for me.

They also make oysters, shrimp, etc. The oysters taste about like those in a can and are ok by themselves (if you like smoked oysters), but the shrimp is kinda gross if you don't mix it with something.
