It's Like Thanksgiving Everyday . . . #chewyinfluencer

Just before Mommys #1 and #2 took off for SoCal, our monthly box to review FROM CHEWY.COM came. We met it with the usual excitement as it is one of our most favorite things. Inside the box was a bag of CAT treats for Sunshine - Mix 'N' More by Halo and some cans for me an Mommy of the scrumptious sounding Merrick Grain-free Thanksgiving Dinner. OMD we could not wait to try them. Sunshine got to try hers first BUT we had to wait until dinner time (thank goodness we did not have to wait until THANKSGIVING or it would have been mutiny in Casa de Noodles.

Merrick makes their Grain-free Thanksgiving Dinner in two sizes, regular DOG and SMALL dog. We got the small dog size since we are. . . small dogs, that is. They are small cans, about 1/3 the size of a regular can and the idea is they are a one meal size. Good thinking, huh?

We get 1/3 - 1/2 a can of food along with out crunchy kibble and some fresh stuff, Our fresh stuff lately has been broccoli, sweet potato, and romaine lettuce. But with the Merrick Grain-free Thanksgiving Dinner we really don't need any fresh stuff because it is included in the meal along with tasty turkey and gravy. We COULD totally get a can each but Mommy doesn't like to do that unless she HAS to. HINT - she never has to.

Merrick Grain-free Thanksgiving Dinner has the following ingredients: Deboned Turkey, Turkey Broth, Chicken, Sweet Potato, Carrots, Green Beans, Apples, Peas, Potato, Dried Egg Product, Natural Chicken Flavor, Carrageenan, Calcium Carbonate, Potassium Chloride, Vitamins (Choline Chloride, Vitamin E Supplement, Vitamin B12, D-Calcium Pantothenate, Vitamin A Supplement, Niacin, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Riboflavin, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Folic Acid, Biotin, Thiamine Mononitrate), Guar Gum, Salt, Sodium Phosphate, Cassia Gum, Canola Oil, Olive Oil, Flax Oil, Minerals (Zinc Amino Acid Complex, Iron Amino Acid Complex, Manganese Amino Acid Complex, Copper Amino Acid Complex, Potassium Iodide, Cobalt Glucoheptonate, Sodium Selenite), Thyme, Sage, Rosemary, Yucca Schidigera Extract, Lecithin.

Are you as impressed as I am? And here's the thing - it TASTES like all that fresh stuff. I go totally goofball for this food and Molly does a great impression of a go-go dancer when it is time to BE SERVED.

So here's where we're at with this luscious foodable

  • We love the TASTE
  • We love the TEXTURE
  • Mommy does not mind the SMELL
  • We and Mommy love the smaller packaging which is perfect for pups like us
  • It is very affordable for us AND it is sold at our favorite food supplier (okay, TRUE CONFESSIONS TIME . . . we get ALL of our food at But we wander in PetSmart and PetCo and PetFood Express once in a while and they all carry Merrick. It is pretty much available at your favorite pet supply)
We HAVE to give Merrick Grain-free Thanksgiving Dinner a big 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8 paws up for exceeding even our expectations. And for me that means edible and only marginally so.
