Here’s another recipe from the “test kitchen”. The jury is still out on the success of this but I thought I’d share none the less.
This recipe has some pro’s and con’s.
- This treat is a softer chewy treat so it’s different than most.
- It has a really nice bright orange color (not so meaningful for the dog but something different for their human companions).
- Pumpkin is the feature of this recipe; great given the fantastic nutritional properties for your dog.
- These are fun to make!
- This treat contains dairy. While not horrible for you dog it’s not really the type of ingredient I like to see in a treat. Even with organic non-fat powered milk the test kitchen isn’t sure if this is the way to go.
- Even though these are a “chewy” treat and the dogs will eat them they feel like a rubber toy once cooked. This could have been an error on the test kitchen’s part (and hence why we call it the test kitchen) or simply the way these will always come out.
- These don’t have a very long shelf life and need to be stored in the fridge for longevity. While I’m not opposed to this and many of the test kitchen recipes need to be refrigerated this makes the texture even more rubbery after being stored for awhile.
