Friday at the Movies: New Treats

We are so excited about our new treats.  Andrew, from Chewy.com, contacted us about trying out some new products they have and one of the items was the Nature's Variety Instinct Raw Boost Minis freeze dried raw treats.  That's a mouthful, but we'll eat a mouthful of these any day and any time!
It figures Truffle would be the first one in the box to test out these new treats.

These treats come in two flavors:  duck and chicken.  Andrew allowed us to choose which flavor we wanted and since chicken is our favorite, we chose it.  We think we'll also try out some of the duck because we liked the chicken so much.

The advertisement information from chewy.com says:

Nature's Variety Instinct Raw Boost Minis Chicken Formula Freeze-Dried Cat Treats

Treat your pets with all the wholesome goodness they deserve with Instinct Raw Boost Minis. Healthy and delicious, each treat gives dogs and cats what they crave - real, all natural chicken and pure raw ingredients. These freeze dried raw treats are a perfect way to provide pets with the healthy benefits of raw while satisfying their senses with a delicious treat they'll absolutely love!

As we impatiently waited for Mom Paula to open the box, the aroma of the treats was intoxicating to us.
Just look at all of those treats in the bag.

We are not on a strict diet of total raw or grain-free food and treats; but we are very health conscious about our ladycat figures and health.  Mom Paula has resorted to buying mostly grain-free treats and stinky goodness canned food, but we still eat our special Persian formula crunchies.  For our "stricter diet" furriends, here are the ingredients of these delicious treats.

Chicken (Including Ground Chicken Bone), Turkey, Turkey Liver, Turkey Heart, Pumpkinseeds, Apples, Carrots, Butternut Squash, Ground Flaxseed, Montmorillonite Clay, Broccoli, Lettuce, Spinach, Dried Kelp, Apple Cider Vinegar, Parsley, Honey, Salmon Oil, Mixed Tocopherols, Olive Oil, Rosemary Extract, Blueberries, Alfalfa Sprouts, Persimmons, Inulin, Rosemary, Sage, Clove

We love these treats.  Brulee gives them two paws up because they are easy for her to grab from Mom Paula's fingers and don't drop out of her flat little mouth as easily as some other treats do.
Look how wide Brulee opens her little mouth for these treats!

We all know how much Truffle loves any treats and the Nature's Variety Instinct Raw Boost Minis Freeze Dried Chicken Treats were no exception.
Truffle gives Mom Paula a little assistance with getting the treats in her mouth.

We appreciate Chewy.com allowing us the opportunity to sample these treats.  We were not paid for this review and received the box of treats free to try out.  We have a short little video showing you how much we enjoyed these treats.  We noticed that Nature's Variety also has some stinky goodness "Instinct" flavors that we'd like to try out, too.  If they are as good as the treats, we know they'll be a hit.

  7. I love the regular size treats like these but the mom always needs to break them up for me because one is just too big. So these mini ones are great! We'll have to get some!

  14. My brofur and I eat the Nature's Variety Instinct kibble. Mommy buys small bags of the chicken and duck and rabbit and mixes it together. We really like it and it's made right here in our hometown! Mommy bought us some samples of the frozen meat foods, but we didn't like it very much. We will stick with the crunchy foods! I must tell Mommy to look for these treats next time she goes to PetCo to buy our crunchy foods...
