Andrea over at Bocce’s Bakery sent me some of her Grandma’s Apple Pie snacks for my puppies. They’re a really good size for my dogs — not too big yet satisfying enough. Not much I can say about the bone-shape except that I still find it adorable even though it’s pretty played out.
The ingredients: organic oat flour, local NY organic apples, local NY clover honey, fresh ground organic peanut butter, and organic non-fat yogurt. Sounds like something I would have for breakfast. I like that they don’t have too much grain in them and that she uses local ingredients. And PB. My dogs, like most dogs can’t get enough peanut buttery goodness.
Ma Snax treats are handmade in Sonoma, CA by founders and professional chefs Mary Ellen Oertel and Ray Masnack (get it — masnack, ma snax?). Would you believe that Mary Ellen is originally from a town only a few towns over from where I live? Small world.
Mary Ellen sent me a sampling of Ma Snax’s some yummy treats to check out. When I opened each bag, it was like opening a cookie jar. I kid you not, these smell delish. And, the Double Pumpkin Happiness treats smell so good that I almost took a bite of one, but then realized that my dogs were staring at me. I bet if you took that recipe and added sugar you’d have pumpkin sugar cookies…or maybe not because I’m no baker! But don’t get me wrong — these aren’t junk food. All of the guilt-free ingredients are organic, all-natural, and/or whole grain, and these snacks are made with cage-free eggs. Perfect for any dog’s diet.
