Freeze Dried Furiday #ChewyInfluencer

Hey, it’s RaenaBelle. Is anypawdy out there?  Mommy and sis Dezi said today’s somethin’ called black Furiday, and dat a lot of our furiends are gonna be out standin’ in lines today tryin’ to get a bargain. We purray you all stay safe. I’s not sure ‘bout those bargains. Mommy spent a little time yesfurday lookin’ at “ads” and sayin’ everythin’ was way too spensive, and dat only a few items at each store was actually a good deal. Anyways, we’re all right here tryin’ to recover from yesfurdays meal, and I’s ask sis Dezi ifin I’s could tell ya’ ‘bout da Halo Kiblets we got from Chewy this month as Chewy Influencers.

So, as most of ya’ know, our favorite treats and meals are of da freeze dried variety. So when Halo came out with a line of freeze dried noms, we just had to try them. Da Cage-Free Chicken formula was our choice. They’re also available in Salmon and Turkey, and just Turkey for cats; and Beef and Cage-Free Chicken for dogs. They come in 6 ounce bags and vary in purrice from $14.99 to $17.91. As a lot of you know, sis Dezi and me like teeny tiny bites. Mommy usually has to break up anythin’ freeze dried dat comes in da house. But, da Halo Kiblets/Mix ‘n Mores are already bite size morsels, so no breakin’ needed. And cuz of their size, mild crunchiness and irregular shape, they would make a purrfect option fur those kibble addicted kitties, as they can be served wet or dry. So let’s see what Chewy says are da key benefits. 

Key Benefits

  • Delight and satisfy your cat’s inherent and ancestral love of meat by adding flavorful freeze-dried topper to dry or wet food

  • Made with limited ingredients, with whole chicken as the first ingredient

  • Topping provides highly digestible essential nutrients for optimal health and vitality

  • Whole chicken is pasteurized, crumbled, flash frozen and freeze-dried to lock in the nutritional value of the chicken without any dehydration

  • Formulated without artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives for an easy-to-digest topper with wholesome natural flavor

And here’s da ingredients: 

Chicken, chicken liver, whole flaxseed, salt, salmon oil, mixed tocopherols (a preservative), taurine, calcium sulfate, calcium carbonate, vitamin e supplement, zinc sulfate, ferrous sulfate, copper sulfate, niacin supplement, manganese sulfate, d-calcium pantothenate, vitamin a supplement, riboflavin supplement, thiamine mononitrate, vitamin d3 supplement, vitamin b12 supplement, sodium selenite, pyridoxine hydrochloride, folic acid

 

 

 

Halo Freeze dried kiblets

See? They kinda look like kibble.

 

As you can see, altho’ da name says Kiblets/Mix ’n Mores these can clearly be served as a complete meal. And they don’t include any of those questionable ingredients our humans try to avoid. Of course they can also be fed as a treat or added to your pets normal food. Mommy initially gave us a few as a treat, but we purrfur them mixed in with our regular noms. Notice I’s said we purrfur, so ya’ know dat means we like ‘em. They’re a great bite size piece and taste purretty good ifin I’s do say so mines self. There seems to be a bite every now and then dat has a darker color to them and are a bit crunchier than da others. Mommy says it’s purrobably da liver. No purroblem fur us, tho’, we just spit ‘em out. So, fur dat reason, and da one mommy will talk ‘bout in a minute, I’s give ‘em a hearty 3 paws up.

Sissy? Wanna tell everypawdy what you think ‘bout da Halo Kiblets? 

 Dezi watching Raena while they eat

Fanks Raena. You’re doin’ a great job by da way. Da Halo Kiblets are da purrfect size right outta da bag. Like Raena said, we’re not crazy ‘bout freeze dried liver tho’ so there are a few pieces we both spit out. But hey, overall, me likes ‘em just fine. Fur da same reasons as Raena, me gives them 3 paws up.

Fanky fanks sissy. Let’s check in with mommy now.

 Dezi and Raena eating

Thank you darlin’. I really like the fact that both you girls will eat the Halo Kiblets, even if you spit out a few pieces. I’m a picky eater too, so why would I be surprised that ya’ll are?. I’m happy with the ingredient list. I do think they’re a bit pricey, but this seems to be a theme with most freeze dried foods and Chewy definitely has the best price on the internet. Because of the size of each piece, each bag is a full 6 ounces and there’s very little waste. Anyone who has ever bought a bag of freeze dried food knows that there is often quite a few broken or crumbled and powdered pieces that amount to waste. Especially when your kitties are “biters” and not lickers or lappers. So all in all, I give them a thumb up.

And we really want to thank you all fur sharin’ sweet Hopes’ story and fundraiser. We’re gonna be a bit busy this weekend. Da neighbors furmily is emptyin’ her ‘pawrtment and dat has sis Dezi and me a little freaked out, so mommy plans to spend a lot of time with us. They’re really noisy, bangin’ on walls and screamin’ at each other in da ‘pawrtment and outside. We’re a really calm and mostly quiet household so this behavior is kinda upsetting to us. Even da ambulance ain’t this noisy. So we’ll be by to visit as soon as we can.

Did Somebody Say Rabbit #ChewyInfluencer

Meowllo Monday. You can’t get me down today, cuz me has some great treats to tell everypawdy about. As pawrt of da Chewy.com bloggin’ family me gets to try lots of great products dat me might not otherwise get to try. And da treats me’s gonna be tellin’ ya’ ‘bout today is just one of those things.

 Dezi looks coyly from the cat tree

Me’s told you lots of times dat me’s favorite treats be of da Freeze Dried nature, so we were really excited to see Halo Liv-a-Littles as an offering this month. Me luvs their chicken breast. So delicious. Anyways, mommy thought it would be good to mix it up and give me da chance to try another furmula. We learned real quick when me changed to a freeze dried diet dat me luvs rabbit. Not da pet bunnies kinda rabbit, but da “wascally wabbits” kind of rabbit. So me couldn’t wait to give these Liv-a-Littles Farm Raised Rabbit a try.

Dezi rubbing the Halo Liv-a-Littles treat jar

Halo Liv-a-Littles are grain free and farm raised. They come in a 2.4 oz. jar and da rabbit costs $8.94. Da ingredients are: Rabbit, Salt and mixed tocopherols (preservative). There are five different flavor choices. They are little squares and mommy says they’re too hard to “break” or crumble. Because they’re basically rabbit they’re good fur both cats and doggies. So ifin you share your home with a woofie, no need to buy different treats. And remember. they be 100% grain free.

 Dezi eats a Halo rabbit treat

So what did da actual taste test reveal? Well mommy worried when she took da furst treat out and couldn’t break it up into smaller pieces. Fur a big kitty me likes little bitty bites. MOL But mommy offered me a bite of rabbit and me eagerly took it and started to chew. Me repositioned and chewed some more and finally broke it up. Me spit out half of it and continued to chew up and swallow da other half. And then me asked fur another piece. Yeah me knows me still had half a piece on da floor, but it was all wet and slobbery and me wanted a fresh piece. Me’s not spoiled one bit. Two paws up from me. They could be a little softer or crumblier, but all in all they be yummy. Mommy, what do you think ‘bout da Halo Liv-a-Littles Farm Raised Rabbit Treats?

 Dezi eats Halo rabbit treat

Well Dezi I was very happy that you ate them, or at least some of them. Thankfully Buddy doesn’t mind your left over dried up slobbered on treats, so the part you didn’t eat didn’t go to waste and he liked them as well as you did. Buddy gives them 2 paws up as well. The rabbit formula is not good for crumbling over other foods as an enticement and doesn’t seem to reconstitute in water very well, so they have to be eaten in their current cubed form. They don’t have the stench some rabbit products do so that’s a plus. All in all,I’m glad you liked them, so I give them a thumb up.

They offer speedy free shipping on all orders of $49.00 and over and flat rate shipping on all other orders.

So, what ‘bout mommy? Well they be made wiff only one ingwedient, chicken bweast. They also use a little water, sodium phosphate, salt and carrageenan fur seasonin’ and purreservation. Dat makes mommy happy. And da fact dat we like it makes her happy too. But what ‘bout da company? Well furstly mommy members ‘em when all they had wuz Spot’s stew fur doggies and wuz a small mom and pop type company. She even talked wiff ‘em ’bout purrpawin’ a raw diet fur hers kitties afur raw wuz pawpular. So she knows da company. But dat’s not where it stops. They not be dat little company anymore and hav lots more purroducts these days. They wuz even bought into by a celebwity. But they also do sum gweat fings fur those anipals dat be less furtunate than those of us wiff furever homes. This comes stwaight fwum their site.
