Don't try it

It’s a good day when I find a new food I’m not allergic to.

I have a bunch of food allergies:
Tree nuts
…and etcetera

So here’s the ingredient label for the new food I can have:

Ingredients: Barley and Spelt Flour, Ground Oats, Chicken Meat, Rice Flour, Chicken Livers, Canola Oil, Beet Pulp, Dried Skim Milk, Apples, Salmon Oil, Tumeric, Tocopherols.

Doesn’t sound too bad; all the ingredients are of U.S. origin, and one snap contains just 24 calories.
Except… of course there is a catch.

Kong brand Stuff’n Puppy Snaps Treats.
I tried the Chicken and Rice variety.

Although they had a nice crispy, fibrous texture from the beet pulp, and a hint of sweetness from the apples and spelt, the salmon oil was overbearing and left a nasty aftertaste.

I wouldn’t recommend them.
