Treat Tuesday: Fruitables Skinny Minis and Merrick Power Bites

I noticed Fruitables Skinny Minis and Merrick Power Bites in stores for the first time about a day apart. I'm pretty sure these were both revealed at SuperZoo 2015, and his stores just after that. SuperZoo is one of the biggest pet trade shows in the world, it happens at the end of July every year and we can expect a flurry of new products to hit the market immediately afterward.

These are both chewy, semi-moist, small, stinky training treats and basically the same thing. The big difference is that the Merrick Power Bites are grain-free. Those are made out of peas and potatoes, while the Fruitables Skinny Minis are made out of oatmeal and brown rice. Power Bites have beef at the top of the ingredient list, Skinny Minis have bison quite a bit further down below some grain ingredients. Both are sourced and made in the USA.

Good For: Mid-value training treats for balance work and low-distraction environments. Happy food-loving cattledogs.

Not Good For: Picky chihuahuas who think they want to do balance work but then decide it's not worth it when they find out what they'll be getting paid.

How Much We Like Them: Both of those bags are basically empty. I have another of the Skinny Minis because I got a two-for-one deal on them.
