Product Review: Grain Free Greenies from Chewy.com

Hello there good peeps and pups of Blogville! Macy Blue here back with another product review for Greenies. I've reviewed Greenies before and LOVED them but our pals at Chewy.com wanted me to try the new Grain Free Greenies.

So here goes:

Moerma? Curld yout ellrm erbourt dart nerxt pertograph?

Macy...you don't have to talk with your mouth full! But the Grain Free Greenies are a paler color than the other variety... 

I see Macy is still chewing:

Nom Nom...Uh Momma, don't be making fun of me!!! I'll have to show them what a supermodel has to put up with in unskilled photographers!

As if they want to see your stupid squash plants... I mean, you did spend a whole day on your garden! It's so hard to get good help!

Oops, I forgot to check for crumbs! Hoover hoover... I don't like to leave a drop behind!

And puppehs, if you live with other puppehs or a humom who steals your foodables... check out this trick:

OUT OF FOCUS AGAIN MOM!!! Sigh... but see that Grain Free Greenie under my paw???? ;-)

Back to business: So Momma??? What's the big deal with grain free... you let me have grains???

Yes MB, I do let you have most grains except corn. But many humans have issues with grains  and wheat has become rather controversial in our diet because growers have been changing it to make it have more protein than it did many years ago. Many humans have issues digesting this new wheat and it kinda makes sense that our dogs would too! And humans who have a wheat allergy (known as gluten intolerance) don't even like to touch wheat based products. So this would be good for those folks. 

And while I'm at it, let's show the folks the ingredients from the Chewy.com website: 

Dried chickpeas, gelatin, glycerin, powdered cellulose, dried potato, water, lecithin, natural poultry flavor, minerals (dicalcium phosphate, calcium carbonate, potassium chloride, magnesium amino acid chelate, zinc amino acid chelate, iron amino acid chelate, copper amino acid chelate, manganese amino acid chelate, potassium iodide), choline chloride, dried apple pomace, fruit juice color, vitamins ( dl-alpha tocopherol acetate [source of vitamin E], vitamin B12 supplement, d-calcium pantothenate [vitamin B5], niacin supplement, vitamin A supplement, riboflavin supplement [vitamin B2], vitamin D3 supplement, biotin, pyridoxine hydrochloride [vitamin B6], thiamine mononitrate [vitamin B1], folic acid), turmeric color.
The downside is the price! Grain Free Greenies are way pricier than regular greenies! Chewy has a 27 count bag at 35.09 compared to 25.99 for regular. The regular are on sale but even if they marked it up for all of the $7 savings shown on the Chewy site... The price would still be a few dollars cheaper. Bottom line: if you have issues or your dog does, spend the money. I for one and glad mine doesn't!

Well, I like them BOTH!!

Macy Blue gives Grain Free Greenies  four paws up and I give it two thumbs down for price!

Neither Creekhiker nor Macy Blue were compensated for this review. Mr Chewy sent a bag Grain Free Greenies for Macy Blue to enjoy..or not.

Very nice review! That's interesting that the number one ingredient is chick peas. We eat lots of those in our house. Too bad the grain free are more expensive

We have had greenies too but Mom says our jaws of steel break them down so fast and we swallow them too quickly with little benefit to our toofers:( So then she brings out the toothbrushes:(

Thanks for the review.

Those greenies look tasty. We get a different type of dental chew but maybe we should give those a try too.
