Bully Stick Review and Giveaway!

Many of you who don't personally know me don't know that last year we adopted a dog.  Jäger came to us through my sister who had been long term dog sitting for a friend who ended up not being able to take him back.  She lives in NYC and she knew that it was unfair for Jäger to be stuck in the city when he could be running around in a yard.  She asked me if we knew anyone who might be interested and of course I mentioned it to my husband.  The next morning he woke up and said, "We'll take the dog."  Needless to say I was completely surprised by his revelation especially since we had never even met Jäger!  I few days later we had him and I can't imagine life without him now!

Ok, ok, what's the point of this story you are wondering...  Jäger is a chewer.  He pulverized sticks outside and we have gone through countless toys and bones.  I was contacted by Best Bully Sticks to try out some of their products and I let them know that he was an aggressive chewer but they were confident he would do well with them.

"What is a Bully Stick?" - Well, plain and simple, it's a dried bull penis. (ewwww)  All of their products are 100% all natural and all of their Bully Sticks come from free ranging Brazilian cattle, none of which are fed hormones or antibiotics.  They are approved by the USDA and are 100% digestible.

They sent me:
2 - 10 inch spiral bully sticks
A medium elk antler
2 -12 inch jumbo bully sticks
I actually timed him eating one of the 12 inch jumbo bully stick and it took him 1 hour and 11mins to eat it. That is fantastic!  Usually something of that size would be gone in 45 min tops!  Here are a few pictures of him chowing down!  Please excuse the crazy eyes.  His eyes are so light that the flash almost always does that and red eye removal makes it look even worse!

Love with Food Review & Free Box!

A while back I posted about Love with Food so here is the review of the box that I received.

The first product I tried was the Rip van Wafels Caramel Filled Amsterdam Wafel.  The instructions suggested that I let this warm up over a cup of tea or coffee but I am a rebel and just went for it.  My 3:00pm sweet tooth at work was bugging me and this surely satisfied it.  It is just what it claims...a caramel filled wafel...what's not to like!  It was soft and chewy but not to the point it got stuck in my teeth.  I think this would have been great warmed up but just too sweet for me to have in the morning.

Next up was Aunt Sally's Creamy Pralines.  This was my after dinner treat one night and it didn't disappoint.  It was gooey and sweet and had just the right about of nuts.  I ate it at room temperature and it was almost too soft.  The heat of my hand holding the package made it start to slip around.

The Spapea Crisps were delicious!  I ate them after lunch and they really
hit the spot.  They were light and crispy with just the right amount of salt.  They taste exactly like like sugar snap peas and I love that the whole package was only 100 calories!

The Bops Chips were a little strange at first but as I got the the third chip I
began to realize that I liked them.  They are a different texture/consistency than a regular potato chip, lighter and almost airy.  The flavoring of the sea salt was subtle and didn't leave me dying for a drink which usually happens when I eat chips.  They also were not greasy.  This was nice since I ate them at my desk at work.

I saved the Sahale Crunchers for last as my in between lunch and dinner snack. I tried to get a good close up shot so you could see the sesame seeds stuck all over the nuts and fruit. This stuff was great! I was sad when it was gone... It was a perfect combination of sweet and savory between the fruit and nuts.

I really enjoyed this box of goodies and I think you would too.  Click the link here and get a free box to see for yourself!  Use code 'FBGIFT'.

Once you get your box...tell me what did you get?

*Side note*  I did not eat all of these in one day....Although it was very tempting!
