This month, Chewy.com sent us Newman's Own Snack Sticks in Chicken & Rice flavor to review. I like the Newman's Own brand, and natural or organic products are always appreciated. When I opened the bag they looked and smelled vaguely like pretzels. They are made in the USA and contain certified organic ingredients.
The ingredients are as follows: Organic Chicken, Organic Oat Flour, Organic Barley Flour, Soy Grits, Cane Molasses, Dextrose, Organic Brown Rice, Glycerin, Salt, Cultured Whey, Natural Flavors, Oil of Garlic, Tocopherol (Vitamin E). *Certified Organic
Since garlic is in the list of things dogs shouldn't have, I am always surprised to see it in an ingredient list, and it does turn up a lot. Does anyone have any insight about this?
The snack sticks are easy to break into smaller pieces, or they can be given whole as a large occasional treat. Ruby was happy to take hers into the living room to munch on...once I finally gave it to her, that is. She was quite enthusiastic about them, and finished the whole bag before this review was written.
The 4 oz. packages of snack sticks are currently on sale for $3.99 from Chewy.com. They do contain soy and quite a bit of added sugar in the form of molasses, so they're probably not something we'll be regularly purchasing, but Ruby did enjoy sampling them!
DISCLAIMER: I received a full-sized package of Newman's Own Organics treats from Chewy.com in exchange for my honest review.
