Is My Blog Going To The Woofies?: Monday Meowsie Product Reviews

SPT sidebar 02


What a day, what a day…we were invited by the people at The Honest Kitchen to select one of two treat products they wanted to have reviewed.  I call it “taste testing’ myself…

*slurp* bring it on

*slurp* bring it on

Mom L and I checked out both products, and of course, I, Savannah the blog owner, selected the cat treat which was Smittens Icelandic Haddock treats.  Their website describes them as…

Smittens™ fish cat treats are made from pure, wild, line-caught Haddock from the pristine waters off the coast of Iceland. They’re high-protein, low-fat and low-carb with just 1.1 calorie per treat. Smittens are delicious and perfectly aromatic, with a texture cats love – not too hard with just the right amount of crunch!

So, I thought OK…bring those fishies on over for a little taster testing, but then Mom L said no…let’s check out the ingredients first…

Savannah: Seriously Mom L???

Mom L: Yes Nana, seriously

The ingredients are:
Dehydrated haddock

Guaranteed analysis
Protein, 83.5%
Fat, 0.85%
Fiber, 0.75 %
Moisture, 11.85%
1.1 calorie per treat

Now these were ‘Mom L’ approved for taste testing and I thought we were finished selecting what product we would use for a product review.

Mom L: You know Savannah, these dog treats, the Duck and Cherry sound so interesting…let’s taste test these too

Savannah: *whiplash neck twist* WHAT??!!

And so…Miss Tammy’s woofies got to taste test the Nuzzle Treats made of duck and cherry…

I would only allow Miss Tammy’s woofies to do this on my blog, I owe her big time as you all know.  She saved my life literally when I was at the kill shelter in 2010.

Only for you Miss Tammy

Only for you Miss Tammy

Now, on to the actual taste testing product reviews

You want to meow about ‘stinky goodness’???  This totally qualifies for the ‘stinky’ for sure!!!  Now the ‘goodness’ determination will need to be left up to finer palates than mine.

As you can see…I just was not ready to give these treats even one claw up…but then I have always had a very discriminate set of taste buds. (hover over photos to see complete captions)

The Kid Sage brought in a big FOUR PAWS UP!!  She could not get enough!


As long as Mom L was going over to Miss Tammy’s to get her woofies to do the Dog Treat Taste Test Product Review…I suggested she might want to offer some of her cats, maybe even Tigger, a chance to give these treats a whiffy and lick…just to balance out The Kid Sage (4 UP) and me (4 down).

Here you can see Bee and Tigger…frankly Bee made a bit of a fool of himself.  You see he tried several and then when Miss Tammy tried to offer some to the other cats, Bee made such a fuss, and he followed her yowling for more!!  As you can see Bee gives them a definite FOUR PAWS UP and so does TIgger give them FOUR PAWS UP.

Let’s give you some information about the woofie treats before you watch the chaos that ensued for this ‘product review’…*shakes head…shameful, actually, just shameful*

The Honest Kitchen Nuzzle Dog Treats are described on their website as…

Our Nuzzles™ dog biscuits are made with duck & cherries for a luxurious, rich & irresistible flavor. Nuzzles natural low-calorie dog biscuits might be low-calorie, but they certainly don’t skimp on flavor!

Made from human grade ingredients, Nuzzles all natural dog biscuits are crafted into a larger, heart-shape and have the perfect consistency for a dog biscuit – not too hard and not too crumbly. Plus, with just 2.3 calories per Nuzzle, you can share them often – a perfect bedtime snack.

The treats are made from…Barley flour, duck, molasses, water, eggs, coconut oil, cherries and parmesan cheese

Guaranteed analysis
Protein, 12.5%
Fat, 4.0%
Fiber, 1.2%
Moisture, 8.2%

Just 2.3 calories per Nuzzle!

And now for the woofie review…first up  is Heidi, a Corgi/Dachsie; then Huntley, a Britany spaniel/Basset Hound and last is Sammy the Dachsie…you can read about Sammy’s rescue here

The final count for The Honest Kitchen Cat Smitten Haddock Treats is:

4 Paws Down

12 Paws Up

For the Nuzzle Dog Treats with Duck and Cherry:

12 PAWS UP!!

That is my taste test product review for The Honest Kitchen’s Cat and Woofie Treats…and NO…we were totally NOT compensated for our reactions to the taste product assessment of their cat and woofie treats…and NO we were not reprimanded for the fact that I, Savannah, did not care for the Smittens Haddock Cat Treats.  The Honest Kitchen gave us one 3oz Cat treat box and one 3oz Woofie treat box…that is their total involvement in this taster testing product review.

Paw Pats, Savannah

  1. OOOOOOOOOOOOOH! You’re review of the kitty treats was soooo good that my housekeeper, who rarely buys me ANYTHING, is going to buy a bag. She told me that she thinks I will like it because I kept trying so hard to get her to share some cookies that had kosher fish gelatin in the glaze. She couldn’t smell it, but I sure could! Now I’ll have my own treats, and I won’t share with her. Your friend Dinah RWB (reader without blog.)

    • Well, it took my housekeeper 15 days to go out and buy me a bag of the treats. And then she had the nerve (again) to mutter about how she thought I was going to share expenses with her when she brought me home. If she thinks this will make me share the treats, she is wrong wrong wrong. I add my four paws up for the Icelandic Haddock treats! Yum yum yum! Your friend Dinah, RWB.

  2. I think I would be with you Savannah. I do not like the strong treats and prefer a lighter taste. We are more refined. MOL
