Merrick Back Country #ChewyInfluencer

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Kittens!!! Have we had a week or what? Storms all the time and then that nasty ole lawn crew came and scared mine’s sissy.

          Me wasn’t scared, Raena!!! Me was just tryin’ to be safe. You know one of our sweet furiends pointed out that our hearin’ is way better than human peeps ears, so all that racket just might bust our ear drums ifin we hang out too close to it.

 

Um  Sure sissy, whatever you say.

(Raena meows under her breath) I’s don’t think so, sissy, but that’s a good one.

Anyways, at least we got some treats after the lawn crew left. And we even had a sun puddle fur a minute this meownin’. We wasn’t sure we were gonna get any based on all those storm warnings last night. Ya’ reckon we might get some more of those tasty treats today, sissy?

 Raena with Merrick Freeze dried cat treats

 

You’re right sissy, we should. We were so excited to see treats on the review list this month from Chewy.com. We weren’t aware that Merrick made freeze dried raw treats, so we just had to try ‘em. We got the Grain-Free Real Chicken recipe in a 1 ounce bag. They also come in Grain-Free Real Salmon fur $2.72 a bag. It is a small bag, but the bag is filled to the top. And comparin’ freeze dried treat purrices, they’re purretty reasonably purriced.

 

          Yeah Raena, they are. But they’re more like a topper than a true freeze dried treat like we’re used too. Most of the freeze dried treats we eat are 1 ingredient, like chicken breast or chicken liver. So let’s take a look at the ingredient list of the Merrick Back Country Grain-Free Freeze Dried Real Chicken Recipe.

  

Ingredients

  1. Chicken, Chicken Liver, Dried Peas, Dried Potatoes, Gelatin, Salt, Mixed Tocopherols (Preservative).

Caloric Content

  1. 3,805 kcal/kg, 3 kcal/treat 

 

Yep sissy, and they’re shaped in little tubes that can be fairly easily broken or crushed and sprinkled over food. Let’s see what Chewy lists as the key benefits.

  • Protein-rich treat

  • Real whole pieces of raw, freeze-dried chicken

  • Freeze-dried pieces lock in all the nutritional benefits of chicken in its natural state, in an easily digestible format

  • More nutrients are absorbed, and fewer pass through

  • Morsels are also loaded with incredible, naturally fresh flavor cats love

  • Cautions

    Not for human consumption.

As you can see, there’s none of those questionable ingredients overtly mentioned in the ingredient list. We’re not sure what pawrt of the chicken is used, but they ain’t chicky breasts fur sure. So, let’s get to the taste testin’. After the lawn crew cleared out, things settled down a bit and mommy gave us a few of these Merrick Back Country chicken treats. At furst, I’s wasn’t sure what to do with them. They rolled nicely, and made fur great battin’ purractice. But then mommy broke a couple into smaller pieces and offured them to me in her hand. I’s took mine’s furst bite and then mine’s second and so on. They may not be pure white chicky breasts, but they are purretty tasty. I’s would have to give them 3 paws up. Sissy, what did you think?

          Well Raena, me knew ‘zactly what to do with them. Me ate ‘em all up. You’re right, they’re fur sure not chicky breasts, but they are purretty tasty indeed. Me does purrfur the single ingredient freeze dried treat, but these ain’t bad fur havin’ peas and taters in ‘em. Me gives them 3 paws up too. And, cuz of the purrice, those lookin’ fur an affurdable freeze dried treat fur your furries, might wanna check these out.

  1. Well they are called treats, freeze dried treats…not freeze dried (food) for treats…maybe that’s why they put all those extras in there. Do they think furs would like the taste enhancements??

    Glad you did enjoy them though. We have some freeze dried plain chicken and we shunned it…so dog-guy scarfed em down! MOL!

  2. I wasn’t sure Bear would eat freeze-dried food in that cylinder shape … but he scarfed them down none-the-less. We tried a different brand – that was a topper, not a treat – but he didn’t hesitate. We can’t wait to read the rest of your interview with the handsome Valentine!
