Real pemmican was a mixture of ground dried meat, fruits and berries and rendered fat. This was true of both the original version invented by Am Indians and the version put in survival kits pre- and early-war.

 

I just checked Wikipedia on pemmican and the company that makes the bars you show were actually sued because their product was not pemmican. Basically they are just a granola bar. Still good food, but not pemmican.
