With Bear eating all of his meals out of feeding toys, it’s become important that we also have a lot of little tasty treats laying around to mix in there for interest. Summer is gone, and Fall is in full swing here in Portland, but with the Fruitables Watermelon Flavor Skinny Mini’s- the pups can enjoy the taste of Summer all year long.
We’ve tried some Fruitables treats before. When I was volunteering with PCHS in Kansas, we had bi-weekly adoption events at Petco, so I got my treat browsin’ on something fierce in those days. During one volunteer stint I picked up the pumpkin and blueberry flavored Crunchy Fruitables biscuits from Petco and both were enjoyed by the dogs.
Fruitables has been up to a lot since we last checked them out though! They’ve got Soft & Chewy, Jerky, & even Greek Yogurt Crunchers treats now- and they all look like flavor options my dogs would enjoy. I like the Fruitables treats because they’re all natural, with organic ingredients, and don’t contain anything artificial. It’s a brand I can trust, and they’re all made in the USA.
Fruitables have created a line of dog treats that work well for pet parents like me. With two differently sized dogs, who have two very different ideas about what tastes they prefer, it can be hard to cater to both of them. I can buy several packs of the Fruitables brand treats and satisfy both boys’ needs and wants at once.
The Fruitables treats are created using Calorie Smart concepts. They use fruits and veggies to balance the palatability, keep the calories low, and add variety to the treats. The Fruitables treats have been proven to reduce hunger in between meals according to university studies. They must have had Bear in mind when they created these- because low calorie treats that keep him full in between meals are just the way to his heart! We’re constantly battling his weight, and hes always hungry, so little tricks to satiate his constant hunger are greatly appreciated in our house.
When I agreed to review the Fruitables Skinny Mini’s Watermelon flavored treats, I had already mentally signed Scooter off from participation. You know, his picky tendencies and all. I figured Bear would enjoy them a lot, and we’d feel great feeding them to him knowing they were just 2 1/2 calories each.
Scooter surprised me once again, and absolutely ADORES the watermelon Fruitables. Go figure In fact, he loves them so much, he’s including them in his Top 4 Favorite Treats Ever- photo above. That’s a pretty big deal around here! Both Bear and Scooter love yogurt, so these Greek Yogurt treats will most certainly be on their Christmas Wish Lists this year
It’s also very important to note that the Fruitables Watermelon Skinny Mini’s coerced this insanely adorable and intense face out of my old boy- my favorite photo in all our 11 years together! <3
