Cinna-Bone Treats!

Greetings to all, it's me, Maggie!  Cam and I have joined the Chewy.com team of product reviewers!

If you see this on a bag, you might as well start wagging your tail!

The product Mom chose for us to review is Solid Gold Cinna-Bone Holistic Dog Biscuits:

All-natural, made in the US

They come in a heavy-duty plastic bag with a really cool closure!  It's easy to pull the bag apart at the top (I mean for someone who has thumbs; I'm pretty sure Cam and I would have to chew it open...) and then seal it up with the interlocking black plastic strips!

Easy-open top!

Mom really likes that feature, as it will help keep the treats extra fresh!

As soon as the bag has been opened, you will be hit with the wonderful, rich smell of cinnamon!!!

"Hello!"
"You have my complete, undivided attention!"

The smell was intoxicating.  Cammie and I were entranced by them.  Mom thought they smelled delightful too.  I made a mental note to keep an eye on her.  I think you know what I mean.

Mom reached into the bag to get a treat out and came out with this:

"Hmm."

Leaves!  I LOVE leaves!  I love chasing them and pouncing on them and yes - EATING them!  For some reason, Mom does not endorse this leaf passion of mine, however, and she was a bit concerned about them being in the bag.  She thought they looked like bay leaves so she checked the ingredients listed on the bag; no mention of bay leaves.  "Hmm," again.

Mom checked the Chewy.com website and their listing for Cinna-Bones had no mention of bay leaves either, so ... she went to the Solid Gold website.  This is all while Cammie and I had to wait, by the way.  Oh, was that ever hard!  Waiting is SO TOUGH!  Especially for Siberians.  No, really.  It is.  Fortunately, on the Solid Gold page for the treats, they do say that bay leaves are added to the package to help promote freshness.  Whew!  (Just don't eat them.  Not that I'd try.  Really.)

Let's get down to business - the taste-test!

Nice and large!  2.75 inches!

The treats are large enough for large breeds, but are easily broken into pieces for smaller pups or by mean moms like ours who won't let you have a whole one all to yourself even though they are the perfect size!!!  Ahem.

Cam and me, about to break bread ... err ... biscuit together!

I have to say, we LOVE these!  They taste every bit as good as they smell - and trust me, they smell delightful!  They are made with wholesome ingredients - and there are many health benefits to cinnamon!  We would definitely have our mom buy these for us as special treats!

We give these treats 5 stars out of 5.  They're all-natural, made in the US, and are the perfect size.  They taste and smell terrific - to us and to our mom!  The only "hit" was not mentioning the addition of bay leaves on the bag - but a quick trip to the Solid Gold website cleared that query right up!

Many thanks to Sydney at Chewy.com for allowing us to join the team and for the wonderfully tasty, healthy treats!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

  5. I'd be worried too if I found leaves in my bags. I wonder if Harlow would like those? She has such odd tastes, I can almost see the cinnamon being too much for her.

  6. How odd to put the leaves in without letting people know why they are there and not to eat them. Nice to be back. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  7. mom would have been weirded out by the leaves too - you'd think they could have that printed on the bag (in big letters). mom loves the smell of cinnamon too, but we promise to keep her away from your treats. :) and yes, servicing size should not be smallified by the mom

  8. You girls were very patient while your mom checked on those leaves. That would've been torture! Glad you finally got to enjoy the treats though!
