Review: Newman’s Own Dog Treats
Somehow I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t elude the fact that virtually all dog treats are being marketed as premium dog treats. So we move on to the second-most used buzz word of the day Ã¢â‚¬â€œ organic. Is organic really better? Scientifically speaking, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m 99.99% certain that IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m 99.99% uncertain. And IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m sure, from your dogÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s POV, it probably doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t matter much. But what I find fascinating, at this juncture Ã¢â‚¬â€œ yes, I used juncture Ã¢â‚¬â€œ is that I am able to pronounce all the ingredients of these treats, which, in light of this good news,Ã‚Â leads me to conduct my own non-scientific experiment: Do they taste good? Answer: A resounding Yes! And I would probably argue that they probably taste as good, if not, the same as DustinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Mutt Munchers. Suffice to say, theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re pretty darn good albeit being very wheatie. They even smell decent. Even though I only ate one of these treats, I can safely say that your dog will probably like these, too.
Now, to my tangentsÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ I had no idea that the fine actor Paul Ã¢â‚¬Å“PaÃ¢â‚¬Â Newman from Road to Perdition had a peculiar side-gig selling dog treats, out of all products. What surprised me even more upon further investigation was that he sells a boatload of other random perishables such as marinara, lemon juice and, yes, even salsa! Strange. And did you know heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s donated more than $150 million to thousands of charities worldwide in supporting animals? Neither did I! But itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s written right there on the packaging! Case in point: You should watch Road to Perdition, because Pa sells delicious organic treats and saves animals.
Pros: tastes good, comes in four flavors (chicken, cheese, vegetable, peanut butter… I ate the chicken kind) and not too pricey at around four bucks
Cons: you’ll have to break the medium-sized treats in half if you’re training a small dog
