I consider my pets to be members of my family. I’d heard of WellPet and the Wellness brand before but had little knowledge about it. Recently Wellpet announced some new products at the 2014 Global Pet Expo 2014. We were fortunate enough to be able to try some of them. Well, Jules and Dobby tried them. I watched.
Wellness CORE Superfood® Protein Bars
What happens when you combine powerful superfoods like pomegranates, sweet potatoes and kale with hearty proteins? You get Wellness CORE Superfood Protein Bars. Recipes include Turkey & Duck with Kale, Beef & Bison with Blueberries, Chicken & Turkey with Sweet Potatoes and Salmon & Whitefish with Pomegranates.
“Pet owners want to read pet food labels and see high-quality, natural ingredients that they’re familiar with from their own diets. That means no fillers, meat by-products, or hard-to-pronounce preservatives,” says Chanda Leary-Coutu, Senior Marketing Manager for WellPet. “As pet owners, we strive to develop healthy, protein-packed and nutrient-rich recipes, like Chicken & Turkey with Sweet Potatoes from our Wellness CORE Superfood Protein Bars line, that reflect flavor combos we know and pets will love.”
It was great to read the label for the CORE Superfood Protein Bars and be able to read and pronounce every single ingredient. They’re all foods and ingredients that you or I could eat! The treats are small, moist little chunks. Dobby gobbled them up as quickly as I gave them to him and quickly requested more. (Translation for those without dogs. He looked up at me with giant puppy eyes that proclaimed starvation.)
Kittles come in three scrumptious flavors: Salmon & Cranberries Recipe, Chicken & Cranberries Recipe, and Tuna & Cranberries Recipe.
Once again I was able to pronounce every ingredient on the package. These treats are tiny. They’re hard and crunchy. I ended up having to give them to Jules from my hand because he was having a hard time picking them up off of a flat surface, whereas he could have picked up a soft treat. Once he got them he was very happy. He smelled them once and then ate them up. He kept looking for more, as if he were in the hopes I could just feed him an entire bowl. Well, that would sort of be not the point of a treat, right. Fortunately, each treat has under 2 calories, so I didn’t feel guilty at all giving him four or five.
