Kong Chewy Treat Review and Give Away!

11th of June 2013
Today we are  reviewing KONG® Chewy Treats in
the flavors of Beef and Cheese and Sweet Potato. Now many us know about KONG® toys and even we have a few hiding in the old toy box but now KONG® is moving into providing tasty and quality treats - we looked at their website and there are 50 - YES 50 listed- wow wee!!!!

Here's the basics

  • Both are soft, moist and chewy
  • Both are very tasty and they smell good
  • Bags have a zip top to keep them nice and fresh
  • They use rosemary as a natural preservative
  • We loved that the beef and cheese chews are KONG® shaped and the perfect size for us.
  • The Sweet Potato Stix's also have carrots and peas in them and are VEGAN too

Negatives - Kind of - Sort of - Maybe - Not Really
  • For us as medium sized dogs we did find the sweet potato treats a little bit small. They would be perfect for small breed dogs or doggies that don't inhale their treats like we do but dog oh dog they sure tasted good!


    • Without a doubt - we give this our 5 paws rating.

    3 lucky dogs will each get a packet of these yummy Beef and Cheese and Sweet Potato Treats and the only thing you have to do is tell us what herb is used to preserve these yummy bits of goodness. The answer is up there 'positives' section. We will put all correct entries into Random.org to pick 3 winners and KONG® will send you your prize direct.

    1. Golden Woofs, we got the same post. I got to taste the Sweet Potato Stix. Yes it is small, perfect especially for portion control. Mom had to buy a new toy to fit the mini Sweet Potato Stix ... check out my post + video. You can add this post/url to the tasty Tuesday hop. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

    2. Sadly, these competitions are rarely available for us in South Africa. Oh well, good luck to all. The treats look fabulous

    3. Okie Dokie, you bet, we are ready to try them out, the secret ingredient is Rosemary, and we bet them Beef & Cheese are the bestest!

    11. Yummy, yummy yummy. How cool that rosemary is used as a preservative, instead of something I can't pronounce (or spell)!

    12. We just might have to try those Sweet Potato thingies.

      XXXOOO Daisy, bella & Roxy

    13. Hi Denny and Reilly, we think that KONG treats are really good too. We hope that you liked them a lot.

    14. OMD! This is sooo exciting!! I've never had Kong treaties!! Can you believes it?! Well, it's true (my Ma is a meanie...) They sound DELISH!!
      Now, the herb they use to preserve these delectable bits of goodness is: Rosemary! wows, that sounds good!
      Thanks guys!

    15. Rosemary - who is Rosemary - a great name for a preservative - we are only joking.

      We love our Kongs and our Wubbas, so those treats must also be fantastic.
