Newman's Own Organic Pet Sampler Review and Giveaway







    If you recall recently I posted a review and giveaway for Newman's Own Organics. Quite a few of you actually commented about the pet products and were showing interest! Well guess what! They have a pet sampler!
   Dexter showed way more interest in this particular box than the previous one I received  from Newman's Own Organics, and for that, I am glad! 
    Dex is picky when it comes to crunchy foods and treats but as soon as you put something new in front of him he will sniff the scent right out of it and then lick it across the floor or try to swallow it whole if he can. You can always tell he likes something when he gets the crazed look in his eyes. 
Snack Sticks-I made the mistake of allowing this to be the first thing I opened for him. This is also now the only thing he wants to eat! I love that these don't smell horrible or really much like anything at all. I love that they aren't greasy like a popular brand on the market right now and I love that Dex loves them!  The biggest issue is he loves them so much he doesn't want to bother with chewing so I have to break it into to small pieces or he tries to swallow it whole. You can see by his face how much he enjoys them though, and every time he wants one he walks over to the corner where they are, paws the bag then stares at me until I cave. I'm happy to oblige!

Premium Adult Dog Food- Dexter is usually not a fan of change when it comes to his dog food. It's a struggle to get him to eat if he decides he dislikes something I just bought for him. I decided to just go ahead and give this a shot, see if he would take to it without little to no effort on my part. Now, normally I would introduce a new food by giving him a tiny piece and either he eats it or he spits it out. Well, he spit this out. So I was thinking he didn't like it, but I decided to give it another shot and poured some in his food bowl.           He has literally been gobbling this stuff down for 3 days straight, no hesitation, and no food spit out on my floor. Maybe he was mad that I was trying to feed him adult dog food like he was a baby. 


Chicken and Brown Rice- It is hard to believe I popped open a can of wet dog food and it actually smelled like what it said on the can. We all know that ''canned food" smell. That '' I can't believe I'm feeding this to my pets-it smells rotten" canned food smell. Crazy enough, this actually smelled like Chicken and Brown Rice! Dex absolutely loved it too!
Organic Beef- When I opened up this one I was surprised that it had the texture of, and smelled like canned tuna more than beef. The second that I picked the can up out of Dexter's box of treats, he knew instantly he was in for something awesome! On the way to the kitchen I was jumped on twice and tripped four times. I had to stop and remind Dex that if I didn't survive to open the can he wouldn't get to eat it, so he ran to his food bowl and stared at me around the corner waiting for me to put the food down in front of him. Luckily because it was more creamy than chunky, he kept it in the bowl and paced himself, and by pacing himself I mean he ate a quarter of the can and paused because he may have forgot to stop to breathe.


Peanut Butter Treats-These did not get nearly as much love from the Dexman as I would have liked, but that was more my fault than the fault of the treat. If Dexter has the option of a soft treat and a crunchy treat, he will repeated choose the soft treat over and over until there are no more soft treats. I made the mistake of giving Dex the snack sticks first, so he refused to eat these because he knew there were still snack sticks available. He's not stupid. After all the snack sticks were gone though he started eating these no problem and I love them because they are small enough that I don't have to break them apart into smaller pieces for him to not choke on them. 

     Newman's Own Organic Pet Food is definitely one of Dexter's favorite things right now! If he understood a rating system he would give it 4 paws up. He loves it because he thinks he is getting a treat, I love it because its actually GOOD for him and made with better ingredients than most products on the market.

  2. I love this giveaway! If I win, I'd probably give it to my mother who owns a very happy and spoiled Brussels griffon. :) He is the sweetest thing though.

    Thanks for all these fun chances to win!

  3. I did not know this.... Organic brown rice contains nutrient rich bran layers, which are an excellent source of beneficial fiber, complex carbohydrates and essential amino acids and, when cooked, closely resemble the intestinal contents of a wild dogs' and cats' prey. Awesome! I'm gonna eat me some organic brown rice!

  5. I learned that 4D chicken is meat and by-products that have been derived from chickens that were rejected by food inspectors who classified the chickens as not fit for human consumption because they were "Dead, Dying, Disabled or Diseased" at the time of inspection. Newman's Own Organics does not use 4D meats.

  20. I like that the food has gone through a third-party certification process - unlike "natural" or "holistic" products - that validates that at least 95% of the ingredients are organic. Even the manufacturing facility is inspected by an accredited agency to validate cleanliness, manufacturing procedures and record keeping as well as that food ingredients are indeed certified organic.-this way I KNOW I'm getting the best for my kitties!

  24. There is a l to like....that Its all made here in the us, that they have natural products and organic products and a large variety of different flavors and different treats and that they have a whole line including dry food, wet food and many treats, etc.... I have eight dogs, three of which are rescues. The food I was usogn has been discontinued by the local pet store and I'm having to order it which gets costly in shipping and is inconvenient, plus I always worry that they will be out of stock or something....so I'm looking for a great food like this that I can buy locally for the fur kids. So, I'd really love to try these new mans own products for my fur kids. I like what I have read about their stuff and I would like to let the fur babies try and see what they think, thank you for the chance to win this great sampler!
