We were approached by JAKKS Pets, partners with KONG for the KONG Premium Treat line, about doing a review and giveaway. Rita said, "Sign us up!" Momma said, "Hang on... let's read through everything."
Once the Momma found out the treats are USA-made (very important - don't buy treats made in China!) and use good ingredients (all-natural, no animal by-products, and no wheat, corn or soy!) she agreed with Rita.
So, the lovely folks from KONG Premium Treats sent us 3 treats of our choosing to try, and now THREE lucky winners will win the same - a prize pack with 3 fabulous treats:
|A prize package with a trio of treats!|
The trio of treats includes:
* KONG Thick Cut Jerky - Turkey (turkey, barley flour, brown rice flour, tapioca starch, maple syrup, vegetable glycerine, gelatin, natural flavor, salt, carrots, cranberries, sweet potato, natural smoke flavor, phosphoric acid, sorbic acid, citric acid, mixed tocopherols, rosemary)
* KONG Natural Jerky - Beef (beef, chicory, lecithin, salt, cultured whey, mixed tocopherols, garlic)
* KONG Chew Buddies - Chicken, Single pack (potato flour, rice flour, gelatin, glycerin, water, ground peas, chicken, sunflower oil, rice starch, oat fiber, dried cranberry, natural flavor, ground flax, calcium carbonate, caramel, zinc propionate)
|Enough with the fine print, Momma! Let's sample these babies!|
|I'd like to try the big one first!|
As for the review, all the treats were a huge hit!
Rita barely held still for the Thick Cut Jerky. (I like these for stuffing in a Kong when I go out.)
|Give it to me NOW!|
|"Yes, I'll sit. I'll shake. Whatever. Give it to me!"|
|There's also a pig or a hedgehog, but I enjoy this smiling gator.|
|This happy fellow has no idea what evil lurks...|
|"Don't bother me, Momma. I'm with my gator. Mmmm. Tastes like chicken."|
The only bummer about the gator was that it was gone in a flash. I thought I'd give it to her, she'd gnaw on it a bit, and then I'd take it away and save the rest for another day. Nope... turned my back for a few minutes (7 to be exact, based on the time stamp on the photos) and it was gone! (On the plus side, no upset tummy after that big ol' treat. She was a "solid citizen," as my brother-in-law would say, the next day.) Note that they also make these in a small size for smaller pups.
|"Please, Momma... I'd like some more..."|
