Hi. Sunshine the Cat here with another scintillating review for Chewy.com. If you recall, I was SILENCED last month in favor of a BIRD named Jade. Okay, I admit it was exciting for Chewy.com to now be including exotic pets in their array of pet products. But it meant someone had to be shoved aside for a month and it can't be NOODLES (it is her blog, after all). By default that shoved aside one was ME. So I pouted for a small while and then put on my Happy You're Happy face for Jade. In other words, I started plotting for June.
It totally worked. I got to pick something to review in JUNE.
The selection in the June newsletter was so vast that I had some difficulty narrowing the choices down to a reasonable size. I eventually decided to go with Nature's Variety Chicken Cravings because it is a brand I have history with. Plus CHICKEN! Need I say more?
I think you know as well as I do that the picture on the package seldom looks like the real thing. I don't know what I was expecting but this was not it. I doubted it was this nice looking.
Fooled me! It VERY MUCH looks just like the photo on the pouch! And the smell? Well, I almost fell off the counter when it wafted my way. Wafted is too delicate of a work to describe the aroma of this pouch of pleasure. I was completely engulfed in the sweet aroma of the chicken bits (REAL CHICKEN) and accompanying gravy. It was heady, I tell ya.
The taste, to which the picture does not do justice, was an amazing melange of sweet chicken and savory chicken flavor gravy. Let me tell you, I am not a pretty site right now all looking at this photo, remembering the flavor, and drooling. MMMMMMMmmmmmmmmm!
But, as you no doubt know, liking a food is not the whole deal. It must be nutritious and provide protein and moisture to a CAT'S diet. Nature's Variety Chicken Cravings does that by being
- Grain and Gluten FREE
- Devoid of dyes, preservatives and artificial flavors
- A good hydration source
- Good for all ages and breeds
- Corn, wheat and soy FREE
As tasty and nutritious as it is, Natures Variety Chicken Cravings is not meant to be a whole meal and should only be served as a topper or supplement. But believe me, a topper is all that is needed to make you culinary dreams come true.
Nowadays when you see me sleeping, notice the smile on my face. I am dreaming about my meal of kibble topped with Nature's Variety Chicken Cravings.
If you are not a real chicken fan, Nature's Variety Cravings come in several flavors (from real meat, fish, fowl): Chicken, Duck, Tuna, Salmon, Lamb, and Rabbit.
I graciously give this product FOUR dignified PAWS UP for flavor, smell, and overall healthiness.
** I was provided free of charge a sufficient number of pouches to allow me to try, taste, and assess the food. I am not being nor have I ever been paid to write a post nor for my opinion. Furthermore, all opinions expressed in this blog are this of the blog owner only. So if you're gonna blame anyone, blame Noodles (snicker, snicker)
Now it is Time for a Little Affirmation
