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):
- Organic Oatmeal
- Pearled Barley
- Oat Fiber
- Canola Oil
- Brown Sugar
- Natural Flavor
- 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!
