Dreamies Cat Treats with Beef
Advantages: Good value for money
Disadvantages: None for us
When I do my shopping I usually buy my cats a packet of treats, they are a bit spoilt but they do love the Whiskas treats so I usually buy them a packet, however recently when I was doing my weekly shop I noticed that the Dreamies cat treats were on offer, I had never tried these on my girls before so I decided to give them a go, cats are fussy little creatures but if they didn't like them then I hadn't wasted too much money.
The Dreamies treats come in a bright pink plastic packet, there is a picture of a cat laying at the bottom of the packet with a cloud above its head and the word Dreamies written in it in bright pink lettering, there is also a picture of one of the treats cut in half with arrows pointing to it describing what its like both inside and out, the flavour of the treats is written at the top of the packet and is also illustrated with a picture. One the back of the packet is the name and flavour of the treats repeated as well as the product information, this includes the feeding instructions, composition and the ingredients. There is a small tear in one side of the packet which allows you to rip the top of the packet, the packet is re-seal able with a small plastic strip just inside the top. The packaging is nothing fancy and similar to that of other cat treats, however it is bright and colourful and really stands out, the reseal able pack is also handy as it means treats are not spilt and wasted.
We purchased the Beef flavoured Dreamies, these are basically small dark brown squares, they look similar to regular cat crunchies that we have brought the girls in the past, the treats have a crunchy outside with a soft centre, I was expecting the Dreamies treats to be a bit bigger than what they were, however this didn't matter as you do get a lot of treats per packet. When I opened the pack of Dreamies you could really smell that they were beef flavoured, luckily this was only present when the packet it was open you couldn't smell it when the packet was sealed so luckily my kitchen didn't smell of beef cat treats. The packet states that each treat contains just 2 calories, I was quite surprised to see this as this sort of information isn't usually available on the packets, however I was pleased to see that as far as treats go they are reasonably healthy and low in calories for my girls, these treats are also said to be suitable for both cats and kittens.
The composition of the Dreamies Beef flavoured cat treats is clearly labelled on the back of the packet and consists of
* Vegetable protein extracts
* Meat and animal Derivatives (min 4% beef)
The additives and analytical constituents is also listed, however this consists of a long complicated list of ingredients which is far to long for me to list, however it is there and clearly set out should you require the information.
Price and Availability
Dreamies Beef Treats are available in most supermarkets as well as a variety of pet shops, I personally purchased my packet from our local Tesco. The 60g packet is sold for just £1.25, I actually got mine for just £1.00 as they were and still are currently on offer. I personally feel these are excellent value for money as you really do get a lot of treats per bag, as I have mentioned the treats are a little smaller than the regular Whiskas brand I purchase but you do get more treats per packet making them worth the money.
I personally have been extremely pleased with the Dreamies Beef treats, if anything I think they actually last a bit longer than other varieties I have purchased in the past and are sold at around the same price meaning they are good value for money. I did wonder whether my girls would like these as they can be fussy with their food, however I didn't need to worry they loved them and couldn't get enough, knowing the calorie content is handy as I know exactly what I am giving my cats, whilst treats aren't the healthiest thing for your cat they do like something a bit different, I also find a packet of treats is handy for getting them in at nights. I would definitely recommend the Dreamies Beef treats as they are cheap to buy, long lasting and most importantly cats do really seem to love them. I will definitely purchase these for my cats again in the future and whilst on offer have been stocking up on the Dreamies brand.
Summary: My girls love them
