Treat Tuesday: Wellness Core Grain-Free Marrow Roasts

I was given this free sample of Wellness's new Marrow Roast treats at SuperZoo. These are part of the grain-free Core product line. I wasn't so sure about them just because my dogs aren't huge fans of crunchy biscuit treats. Also they really, really, REALLY remind me of the Milk-Bone MaroSnacks, which is probably not a bad thing. I'm guessing the intent is to tickle the subconscious with a product that is familiar because we've been seeing in the grocery store for decades now. The two product are similar in that they are both crunchy biscuits with a meaty center flavored with bone marrow. The big difference is that Milk-Bone MaroSnacks are made from wheat, unidentified meat and bone meal, poultry by-products, and artificial food dye, while Wellness Marrow Roasts are made primarily from beef along with peas, chickpeas, tapioca, and sweet potatoes. Also they spelled the word "marrow" correctly. Beware any food that must misspell the name of its key ingredient in order to avoid false advertising suits.

Good For: Slightly picky dogs. Dogs with grain allergies. Sticking in a Kong for an easy puzzle. Handing to the dogs as I'm walking out the door. Low value training treats.

Not Good For: High value training treats.

How Much We Like Them: I am definitely going to buy a bag as soon as I see them at the store. (I should note that not even Wellenss can resist stating that they use "REAL Meaty Marrow" in these treats. I'd love to know what the other option is. Maybe fake marrow...?)
