They did something they don't do often: buy a brand they've never heard of. /sound doomsday effects/
Get in ma belly, Raw Naturals!
Raw Naturals are made by Gimborn, which makes some other pretty popular freeze dried treats, but Mom didn't know that when she bought these.... She was sold on those purdy vegetables and nice blurbs about the qualities of the foods. Good job, Marketers!
Here's the general description:"Pro Treat Raw Naturals combines the goodness of whole meats, vegetables and fruits into a healthy, all natural treat that dogs are certain to love. Only the best ingredients are used at the peak of freshness. These treats do not contain any fillers or artficial ingredients.

Oh, how do they taste? Well... one word:
Okay, to be honest, we aren't picky, and we do generally love novel treats. But I don't think the tastiness will wear off anytime soon! Mom likes that they aren't overwhelmingly smelly, but we think they smell great!
