NOMS! From Mr. Chewy!

What the heck are NOMS?  
In the dogblog world it means treats.  I don't know why or where the term NOMS comes from, perhaps if one of my fellow bloggers with dogs stops by they can educate us.

Nevertheless we got a box full of NOMS here at Boston Manor,
 courtesy of Mr Chewy! (Click here to take a look at the website).                  .

I was contacted via email by one of their representatives offering me $50 worth of merch to try out with the beasts of Boston Manor and write a review on The Boston Lady.
I'm not one to turn down $50 worth of anything and the animals in this house NEVER turn down NOMS!

I placed my order via their super easy to use website and received it very quickly, within 2 days.

Excitement abounded during the initial inspection and sniffing of the box.

Our guest, Sassy the Chihuahua, was completely over the top, literally.

Keep a good distance as "she" wields those scissors.

Let the goodness ensue.

Grouchy Panda says, "yes, Bumby, there is even something in here for you". 
Mr. Chewy has both dog and cat products. Made with natural ingredients, such as the IAMS cat food that Bumby likes and digests well. (Very important this digestion thing as all cat owners know - yech - it can get pretty nasty when it goes badly)

Bring on the NOMS!

A doggie "wishbone" - a beef chew, Panda wanted to start right away, plastic wrap and all.  Did I mention that Mr. Chewy's products are made in the USA? No dangerous fillers or questionable content.

First sampling was from Stella and Chewy's Carnivore Crunch.  Little bite-sized chicken treats, perfect for a quick treat or reward.

Oh yeah, they all wanted some of that!

Of course you can imagine why we also chose this bag of chewy NOMS.  We are a tad egocentric in this household after all.

Packed with all natural goodies that would make any non-dog person shudder, but any dog owner rejoice because they know how much the canines love their dried pig ears, knuckle bones and various rawhide chews.  Sadie was a little leery.

Panda had no shame and dug right in.

The ever-cautious Sadie, took awhile to get into it, but...

...Miss Sassy was game. 
Too big for her, but she got it started and then turned the job over to Sadie to finish. I will add that this bag of treats goes a long way.  Because of the richness of the treats, we limit them to only a couple of times a week making them extra special NOMS!

I didn't order any traditional dog food because I wanted to stretch my $50 and try as many different things as possible.  I did get a bag of Stella and Chewy's Dandy Lamb Dinner, which are in the form of dehydrated patties.  It can either be crumbled on top of food, broken into pieces for treats or re-hydrated with water, which is what I did for the Boston's dinner one night.

With water added it easily resembles any moist dog food available.  Lamb is a favorite of the Boston's and it is very good for their coats.  This re-hydrated food was gobbled up in no time and I will be taking it along on our next trip as an alternate to the wet food they receive a little of each day.

All in all a very good experience with the Mr. Chewy products.  Website is easy to navigate and placing orders is a snap.  They offer free 1-2 day shipping with any orders $49 and over. 

Drawbacks? A tad pricey for some items, but then again you are paying for high quality, U.S. made food and treats for your pets.  The free shipping offsets the extra $$$ some of the items may cost.

Wish list from me? I would have liked to have seen some dog/cat toys and accessories available as well.

Bottom line from the Bostons and Bumby?  Delish!! And when it's delicious and they eat it, then it's money well spent.

Thank you to Mr. Chewy for the opportunity to try your products and for your request for an honest review, which you have just read.

It was great they did that for your review. I have been more vigilant about what Clovis eats as he is old now.

What a fun review post, Ann! The pets seem really into it! I've never seen dehydrated patties like that before- nice it can be used for treats or dinner...that would be great for traveling or emergencies, too!

You had one heck of a party there - looks like everyone liked the party snacks.

What a great box of goodies to review and for the pooches to enjoy. My dogs would go crazy. When we bring home a big bag of dog food our bid dog lays across the bag in the kitchen.

Wowie..what a fabulous box of noms you got!
Sadie and Panda certainly look like they are enjoying all their goodies.
Your Mr Chewy came up trumps!
Have a great weekend

Was that a nose of some sort?

I should get them to send me a box for my foster dogs!

A god review on this product. i always bought high quality things for my dogs and they lived until they were positively ancient in dog years. It does make a diference.
