April 21, 2010Taste Test: Crunch Woofs Microwave Treats

A few days ago a nice lady named Lora, whose company makes Crunch Woofs, sent us a couple sample bags of their microwaveable treats. While we weren’t actually asked to do a review, a rainy Tuesday afternoon makes for a good time to play around in the kitchen taste-testing treats, so we put on our official testing hats and opened up a bag.

(OK, so we don’t actually wear hats. But wouldn’t it be cute if Mingus and Dottie had little taste-taster hats to wear? Some of you crafty Etsy folks, get on that.)

Crunch Woofs are made from 100% human-grade U.S. farm-raised pork. They’re low in fat and high in protein and contain no meat byproducts. That said, out of the bag, they’re not too much to look at — just kind of like a little piece of rawhide or pig’s ear. BUT!! Place them in the microwave for about a minute and a half, and they puff up and expand into light, crunchy, tasty treats. Ever put a Peep in the microwave? Or play with those dinosaurs that grew out of the plastic capsules? Same sort of science here. Well, sort of. Whatever.

Anyway, I didn’t let Ming and Dot get too close to the microwave to watch, because, well, I don’t want pups with more brain damage. But they were all about sampling the “afters.”

The scientific conclusion of our little rainy day experiment? Dogs LOVE Crunch Woofs.

    What will dog snack companies come up with next? I know Pru is holding out for the never ending treat bag.

    I get that the Crunchy Woof logo is suppose to be the dog’s happy, anticipatory reflection in the microwave, but it kinda looks like a dog is being cooked while another watches. Maybe I’ve been looking at too much “goodbye kitty” stuff.

    I’m always looking for treats for Daisy with limited ingredients because of her allergies. So many treats contain chicken. I really like that these are pork.

    Pork Rinds for Pups!

    I agree with Ashley … The logo/graphic looks like there’s a dog IN the microwave! … and the tag line reads (at first glance) “the microwaved dog treat.” I know, in some cultures, eating dog is not taboo, but I think the artwork could use a little retooling for the US market.

    Y’all are crazy! I *guess* I see it… but for some reason the happy-go-lucky facial expression of the pup “in” the microwave just doesn’t strike me as that of a pup in the process of being nuked. :D But maybe it’s just me?
