Fruitables Dog Treats… A Giveaway For Your Best Friend!

This giveaway is now closed, and the randomly-chosen winner is…  ammauceri! She has two pitbull mixes who are just gonna gobble these up 🙂  Have I ever mentioned what a soft spot I have for bully breeds? I think they’re just awesome dogs! So, ammauceri, email me (thatwasvegan (at) gmail (dot) com) with your address and which option you’d like!

For the rest of you- stay tuned, I’ll be back next with with ANOTHER GIVEAWAY! This one is meant for human consumption, is really sweet, and no bees were harmed in the making of it… and those are all the hints I’m giving you!

Please don’t let it ever be said that I play favorites with my human readers- clearly I value my doggie readers as well because this giveaway is ALL FOR THEM! Well, they may need your help entering, but you’ll be required to hand (paw?) the prize right over to them if you win!

I first discovered Fruitables about 6 months ago at my local Petco. I was on my usual pilgrimage for vegan kibble and I like to check out the selection of treats. Before Betty got sick I always baked their treats at home, but now that she can’t partake it doesn’t seem fair to fill the house with the wonderful scent of baking peanut butter. It’s not always easy to find vegan treats in the mainstream stores like petco and petsmart, so I usually end up annoyed- picking up package after package of treats that look healthy/interesting/vegan only to see “chicken stock” or something similar in the ingredients list.

Fruitables caught my eye with their amazing flavors, including Pumpkin Banana, Sweet Potato Pecan and Pumpkin Blueberry! I grabbed a bag and turned it over- all the ingredients  appeared vegan friendly with the possible exception of  “mixed tocopherols” which can be derived from either and plant or animal sources, but I tweeted the company and was promptly informed theirs were all plant-sourced. Perfect! I’m a huge fan of their ingredients- simple, vegan and healthy (example: Pumpkin Apple):

  • Pumpkin
  • Organic Oatmeal
  • Pearled Barley
  • Potatoes
  • Oat Fiber
  • Apples
  • Canola Oil
  • Brown Sugar
  • Cinnamon
  • Natural Flavor
  • Vanilla
  • Mixed Tocopherols

They’re also free of wheat, corn, soy and artificial ingredients, colors and preservatives! And if any of you have a portly dog (like I do) you’ll appreciate the fact that each treat has under 9 calores.

Pumpkin Cranberry was the first flavor I brought home. As soon as you open the bag you’re amazed by the smell- you’ll swear you’re holding fresh baked human cookies or muffins!

Dogs love these crunchy little treats and you’ll enjoy giving them to your furry little best friends because they’re healthy and vegan!

    My special little girl is named Bella. She is a 5 year old Weimaraner that feels more like my child than my dog! Everyone said that she won the doggy lottery when I got her, because I spoil her rotten!

    The dobergrrl in my life is Serenity (so named by her previous owners, scifi fans. How could we go wrong?). She and my cat, who was there first, have hit it off, after a shaky beginning. Now Bob comes for walks with us. If he goes out before us, he will wait on the porch for us to be ready.

    She has made a temporary move to Savannah a lot easier. Not only does she get me out exploring, she gets me into conversations and I probably know my new neighbours as well as I do thanks to her.

    Oh, I’m in on this one! I’m always looking for healthy treats for Ike. We took him off of corn because of a skin problem. I’ve baked treats in the past for him, but honestly, he doesn’t dig the homemade stuff too much. I think it’s a crunch thing. I’ll be sharing the giveaway on Twitter :-).

  • Jonathan Strausberg August 20, 2012, 2:07 pm

    His name is Max and he is the first dog that my wife and I have. He is very cute and loves vegetables!

  • Megan @ AnnieOak Designs August 20, 2012, 2:44 pm

    Her name is Annie. The first dog my husband and I got as a couple and she is the apple of my eye. She snuggles, helps me dry her after the river and snores atrociously. She also takes care of her sister Oakleigh when I need a break. My Annie Bug is the best dog ever (her sis O comes in 2nd).

  • Kristy August 20, 2012, 2:47 pm

    I am always looking for healthy vegan treats for our little Samantha. She’s gotten less finicky in her old age and has begun to open her mind to snacks that aren’t baby carrots. I would love to see if she likes these!

  • Kristy August 20, 2012, 2:49 pm

    And I just liked you on FB! 🙂

  • ammauceri August 20, 2012, 5:20 pm

    I currently have two pitbull mixes, both of whom I adore, but the older gal, Bella, is my little sweetpea. She follows me everywhere and doesn’t mind my obsession with cuddling her… well, most of the time. Thanks for the giveaway!

    I love healthy doggie treats – Max & Ruffys are a brand that Anna really loves but I think she will fall madly in love with these too, the Pumpkin Blueberry would definitely be her favorite!

  • Claudia August 22, 2012, 1:51 pm

    Hello I have a puppy Yorkshire she’s 7 months her name is fluffy and I really would like to win this because these are her favorite treats and the reason why I want this for her is because she’s sick and she has cancer very badly when me and my sister bough her she already had it but the person never told us nothing so that why I really would love to win 🙁

    Duke was my grandma’s Great Dane and even though I don’t remember much about him, there is a picture of me as a tiny tot laying on him. He was the sweetest dog, but very protective of my grandma. He attacked a man who tried to break into her house once. Good doggie!
    I don’t have a dog but if I win, I’ll gladly donate these to a shelter.

  • Kelly Ann T. August 23, 2012, 7:35 pm

    We have two dogs Kouga and Artie who are both rescues. They get along great and add so much love and joy to our home. It is so nice to walk with them each evening knowing I’m getting exercise and so are they.

    Our special dog right now I Sully, a Pembroke Welsh Corgi who’s 9 years old and who is going through some health issues right now. I grew up with dogs, training and showing but this is the first dog my husband really connected with and has a really familial relationship with, he is very much like a son to us. So he is very special to both of us!

    We have Dumpling, a shih tzu mix that we adopted in January. He is about 2 years old and is wonderful to have as part of our family. He is our first dog and he gives us so much love!

    My dog Emma was adopted over here in El Paso, TX. She has been a blessing every sense she has come into our home.
