Allow me to explain. Upon its arrival, I saw immediately that it was my journalistic responsibility to personally take the investigation of these treats firmly under paw and handle the taste testing myself.
All in the name of journalistic integrity, mind you.

(Will someone please help Allie, she sounds like she's choking. But I digress.)
Step one: Mark the bag as mine. MINE.
Step two: Until the Opposable Thumb Kit arrives, (I won't go into the sad state of the USPS at this time, but suffice it to say I am Still Without) I required the help of my somewhat capable assistant - sometimes known as 'Mommy' - to open the bag.
She insisted on a cuddle first. Seriouslies?!?!
Step three: Sampling time.
Step four: Additional taste tests are required for serious consideration.
CONCLUSON: These treats totally Rock the Casbah.
'Scuse me while I go
Addendum by the mom:
The reason I agreed to review these Wellness treats is because they contain very simple ingredients: Turkey, Salmon, Dried Chicory Root, Cultured Whey, Salt, Lecithin, Mixed Tocopherols (a natural preservative)
There are two ingredients in there you may not be familiar with: Dried Chicory Root, and Cultured Whey. Hopefully the info below will help you decide if it's something you're comfortable feeding to your pet.
According to Dr. Michael Haley of Beyond Organic, cultured whey "is an excellent 'nutrient dense' source of many vitamins and minerals, especially the electrolyte minerals, enzymes, organic acids, probiotics, and lactic acid."
And according to several natural pet websites, Chicory Root - a prebiotic - is believed to aid in healthy digestion in cats.
So basically, Faraday gives it four paws up for flavor and I'm pretty comfortable feeding it to him nutritionally. Win-win!
