I’m a freak.
I just don’t understand the bacon obsession. Don’t even get me started on the bacon porn videos and websites. But I’m in a small minority.
So when FreshPet offered to send me some of their new DogNation Turkey Bacon Treats to sample, I decided to try once again to become a real American, to understand the allure of bacon. With Honey’s help, of course.
We put together a little video to show you what we thought. I only wish you could get a whiff when we opened the bag.
Yep, for a brief second, I started breathing a little heavy. Maybe this bacon lust isn’t so crazy after all.
Would I Buy DogNation Turkey Bacon Treats?
Well, it depends. On what, you ask? On whether I’ve recently won the lottery.
DogNation Turkey Bacon Treats are very expensive. According to the product information sheet provided by FreshPet, they will sell for $6.99 for a 3 ounce package.
Curious, I checked the per pound price for pre-cooked bacon in my grocery store. It was just over $23 a pound. Pretty expensive for the convenience, but much less than the $37 per pound cost for DogNation treats.
The Price of Quality
At about $56 a month, it’s not the cheapest food we could buy. But it’s comparable in price to other quality foods.
So I regret not giving a whole-hearted positive review to the bacon treats. Yes, they’re made in the U.S. from safe and healthy ingredients. They’re tasty and make good, stinky training treats. But their cost is so much higher than other options available to me, like liverwurst, freeze-dried liver, and good old turkey hot dogs.
I recommend DogNation Turkey Bacon Treats as a high quality snack. But I’m afraid they won’t make it onto my regular shopping list unless they can bring the price down a bit.
Disclaimer: I received two free bags of DogNation Turkey Bacon treats for this review. I was entirely honest in my review and all opinions are mine (and Honey’s).
