Ruby Reviews: Fromm Grain-Free Treats

The nice folks at Chewy.com sent out these Fromm Grain Free treats in Chicken with Carrots and Peas flavor for us to review.  I was very excited about trying them as Ruby's favorite food is the canned shredded beef entree from Fromm Family Foods.  I like this company very much because they are made in the USA, have been around since 1949 according to their website, use quality ingredients and employ impressive safety standards. Their canned and dry foods also receive four- and five- star reviews on Dog Food Advisor.

Ruby says "let's get this review on the road!"

Ruby has gotten enough packages in the mail that she is excited to see any sort of parcel, and seemed to know that this one contained something good.  She helped me open the box, sniffing the orange package eagerly, then patiently sat through the modeling portion of the review process, though clearly ready to get to the taste testing!

I consider these too large to use as a training treat (and rather difficult to break up) but they are the perfect size to make a great after-dinner biscuit or anytime snack.  Ruby always gets a cookie for cleaning her plate and I think she would consider these a worthy dessert.

Ingredients: Fresh Chicken, Pea Flour, Potato Flour, Tapioca, Whole Peas, Chicken Fat, Tomato Pomace, Fresh Cranberries, Fresh Sweet Potatoes, Fresh Carrots, Fresh Apples, Fresh Split Peas, Fresh Green Beans, Fresh Green Bell Peppers, Fresh Celery, Fresh Beets, Fresh Parsley, Fresh Lettuce, Fresh Watercress, Fresh Spinach

I can feel good about these ingredients, and Ruby seemed to vouch for their tastiness.  She has been known to be a little on the picky side when it comes to treats (it can't possibly be because I like to give her a wide variety of the very best...) but ate her first few samples of the Fromm treats enthusiastically, and even asked for more! She tends to leave a trail of crumbs like Hansel and Gretel, but these were so yummy that she made sure to clean every last speck off of the floor. Ruby rates them crumb-licking good!

Fromm Grain Free treats are available through Chewy.com for only $4.99 for an 8 oz. bag, and some fat-free varieties are currently on sale.  I know I will be making them a regular addition to Ruby's treat basket.

DISCLAIMER: I received a full-sized package of Fromm Grain Free treats from Chewy.com in exchange for my honest review.


  1. I swear, I'm the only blog I read who isn't on the Chewy review list. I've got to fix that.

    Fromm's Pork and Peas kibble is a *lifesaver* around here as an all-purpose moderate-value treat, but otherwise they tend to be a brand that puts chicken in everything.

    1. I enjoy the product reviews, and Ruby now thinks every box that comes is for her! Chewy is great since you have several things to choose from each month.

      I really sympathize with anyone who has to deal with pets' allergies. I've been lucky with dogs but one of my horses has severe respiratory allergies.
