Earth Day Giveaway!

The Honest Kitchen has offered a great package of treats for the dog owner who cares about the planet and the health of their pet! One lucky reader will get a pack of Smooches, Nuzzles, and Pecks!


  • Smooches, Nuzzles, and Pecks are all packed in new eco-friendly packaging, which includes boxes made from 100 percent post-consumer recycled chip board, recyclable inner bags, and soy based inks for printing. The finished product is 100percent biodegradable and reduces the amount of virgin materials and carbon-based substances used to make the product.
  • The Honest Kitchen also employs several other eco-conscious practices for its entire line of human-grade holistic pet products, including: only certified organic grains, hormone and antibiotic-free meats, non-GMO fruits and vegetables and certified fair-trade quinoa in all of its products – This practice supports sustainable farming processes and helps decrease the amount of toxic chemicals being released into precious ecosystems.
  • Only soy-based inks used for all package printing – Soy-based inks require substantially less energy to produce in comparison to standard petroleum-based inks, and also help reduce air pollution.
  • All packaging elements are produced in North America to prevent reliance on excessive transportation, which in turn helps reduce carbon emissions.Virgin materials have been eliminated whenever possible.

  42. Karen Gonyea says:

    I would love to win this 🙂

  43. Michael says:

    For me the most important fact was that ‘by-products’ are not in the list of ingredients. Three different flavored treats is another plus… a more equal distribution for our three dogs! 🙂

    Would like very much to give this product a try with my three very fussy siberian huskies. I have yet to find a dog treat that they will eat.

  90. Linz says:

    Besides the interesting products I am impressed with the webpage – so much so I signed up as a member. I found the webpage easy to navigate (its not too busy) and the pictures are delightful.

  91. McKim says:

    I like the fact that their products are all natural, and also that they make charitable contributions to important animal causes.

  92. Tari Lawson says:

    I thought it was interesting that “human beings actually taste our products as part of our diligent Quality Control Process”. They must really love dogs 😉

  95. A Casson says:

    I visited their site and I think its colorful and cherry, organized and I like that their Ph number is right at the top of the page instead of ppl having to look all over the place for it if they want it. I found it interesting that their Nuzzles treats have duck and cherry in them, wonder if that’s a new trend nowadays to get fussy pups to eat.skyxsky27(at)

  96. Djp says:

    they’re one of the family baby

  97. Lisa says:

    In 4 years I’ve not yet found a dog food he’ll eat. I’m enbarrassed to say, come dinner time, I’m eating twice baked potatoes and he’s chowing down on a pork chop, stuffed with applesauce, etc. These sound wonderful — maybe I’ve finally found the answer!

  98. Kenneth Scoville says:

    We have 3 huskies who are VERY hard to please. Would love to give this product a try. Glad I came across your site. I think I will order some of your product and see if my 3 will eat it.

  99. Dan says:

    I like that they have natural products and donate to charity.

  100. Teresa C says:

    I never heard of this company, but I love them!!! I like that they create healthy pet foods and that they do not use chemicals or preservative. Dehydration is good.

    I also like that they donate right off the top. I will definitely have to try some of their products.

  101. Angela says:

    I love how the gently dehydrate their products since a lot of it is fresh!

  102. paige chandler says:

    Pansy the Pug would love these treats but I wouldn’t tell her they’re healthy too.

  103. adrienne Gordon says:

    makes me feel good about what they put into their treats

  104. susan varney says:

    very tasteful

  105. shannon Baas says:

    I like they have it for cats also.

  106. Sherry Eckman says:

    I have never even heard of this before this giveaway! I reviewed the website, and found it to be VERY interesting. We just got our puppy about one month ago and I actually took a lot of time to research dog food and ingredients and ended up buying “Chicken Soup for the Puppy Lovers Soul”. The ingredients are amazing..just as in the The Honest Kitchen’s dog food. Upon seems like a wonderful food to try..I just wish they didn’t make people pay for the samples! I would opt more for the Thrive or Embark. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the Stainless Steel canister ~AND~ I would LOVE to make the “Ice pups” 🙂 Now that I found this, I have another decision to make about possibly making a switch? I can only imagine how Yummy it looks to a dog once all mixed up!


    I found the following under FAQ: {IT MADE ME SMILE} 🙂

    Your food sounds great – can I feed it to my husband?

    Although our foods are all guaranteed human edible, we are not actually licensed to sell them for consumption by people. We do taste all our products ourselves as part of our QC process but as the box says, they are nutritionally balanced to be fed to pets!

    All in all, I love the website, and all my questions were answered..which was awesome…No sugar coating and straight to the point!!

    Thanks for all the info!

    this is adorable! my doggie would love it!

  108. Karen Gonyea says:

  109. Deborah Cobb says:

    I think my 3 dogs would love this.

  110. Melissa Smothers says:

    It is wonderful that they use organic products to make their treats!

  111. Stephanie says:

    I would feel good about giving my two mutts these high-quality snacks!

  112. james says:

    I truly believe that this and all your products are wonderful, from what I’ved researched. However I believe that you should not point out to much to your customers or clients that your packages and how you make your products your number one sale.
    Don’t get me wrong yes you do need to point that out because it is a great way of doing business.. However to me as a costumer I’m more interested in how will the product will help my animals, will they like it, is it good for them, is it easy to open, close, will it stay fresh longer, so on..

  113. S Rinks says:

    This looks great. I think my 4 would really love it!

  114. Kim says:

    My three dogs *love* The Honest Kitchen! We follow HK on Twitter and will be happy to RT!

  117. Mickeyfan says:

    Interesting. I’ve never looked at dehydrated foods for pets before. Looks like a very eco-friendly company.

  118. Kathy Duffield says:
