I haven't actually bought these cheese flavoured dreamies for my two babies - but I have bought them for my brother's kitty on several occasions. She really loves them.
These are apparently the cheese flavoured treats - again, I can't say that I've ever tried them myself, so I can't tell you whether they actually taste cheesy. They do pong of cheese - well, cat food and cheese. If you can put up with the smell then they can be pretty handy to lure the kitty inside or into their carrier - provided you know they like them.
The pack recommends you only give up to 20 pieces of these per day - the pieces are a little rectangle, not unlike some cereals in appearance. I would suggest that you listen to the guide numbers of the pack - otherwise, what ends up happening is you have a portly pussycat. Plus, if they are anything like my brother's cat they will be sick from all the richness of the food. These really are intended just as treats, rather than a meal.
The pack is re-sealable - which is handy - but occasionally tearing the tear strip at the top is fiddly. One of these days they will make a tear strip that simply tears off, instead of forcing you to tug at it from two ends, and then end up with some plastic stuck in the middle. Sometimes this comes off properly, and then you can praise whatever your various deities are, and just get on with giving the cat the treat.
Dreamies are a crunchy treat with a soft filling. They come in a variety of flavours all in colourful packages. I haven't yet found a flavour that our cat doesn't like and he continues to like them after years of them being bought for him which is generally pretty unusual for him.
The cat treats with cheese come in the following flavours Beef & cheese (pink & yellow package), Salmon and cheese (blue & yellow package) and plain cheese (yellow package).
The packages are soft thin plastic bags with a reclosable top helping the uneaten treats to stay fresh.
They usually sell for about £1.20 per pack and I've often noticed 2 for 1 offers and bigger mixed packs which would be useful if you have several cats.
Each pack contains 60g and each treat contains 2 calories. The beef and chicken packet suggest feeding up to 20 pieces a day although I don't think our cat will actually eat this many even if we gave them to him but it gives some guidance. We tend to give just a few at once. You also need to ensure your cat has access to clean fresh water as these treats are dry.
Dreamies treats are pretty easy to find being available in quite a range in every supermarket I've ever been in as well as most bigger pet shops and online. They're also available to bulk buy on sites like Amazon and zooplus so it's possible to save a little money if your cat really likes them.
WHAT ARE THEY?
These are crunchy biscuits that have got a soft cheese filling inside them. They are treats or snacks for cats.
WHAT I THINK
I thought my cats would like these very much because they like to eat biscuits and all of them like cheese also. I was wrong and out of my 3 cats only one likes to eat these and I am not surprised because they smell very horrible and if they taste as bad as they smell they can not be very pleasing for them.
I have bought two packets of these only and I will not buy more because they are not eaten and even my cat who likes them is not excited to be given one of these treats.
They are very crunchy and if you break one with your fingers you will cover yourself in crumbs from them. The cheese in the middle looks like paste and it smells very strong. My cats ignore them and do not even play with them if I put one on the floor or try to hand it to them.
These cost about £2 for a packet and I think that is expensive even if your cats like the taste. They are not food and are given as a treat only but I think when you buy treats you should buy ones that taste nice for your cats and these do not. You do not have to give them very many so a packet can last for quite a time but that is useless to know if your cats do not like them in the first place.

My kitten Myrtle is notoriously a very fussy eater. I have even taken her to the vets about her not eating it worried me so much and treats for her...well she'never liked them so never really had any. I've bought bags and bags of things to tempt her with, I deny her nothing but all I ever did was waste my money!
A while ago I tried her on a couple of Dreamies that my friend gave me to give her to try to no joy at all, then today we were out on our joint balcony talking to the same friend who's kitten Maizie was out scoffing almost a whole bag of these at the time and my mate chucked a few to Myrtle who gobbled them up. Thinking it was a fluke when me and Myrtle came back into our flat my friend knocked my door offered her a different flavoured couple of Dreamies. Again she woofed them down! So off I've been shopping and I've stocked up on not only every variety of Dreamies I could find but also some Felix ones she sampled and liked too!
Well these come in various sized plastic yellow coloured bags, I bought the 60g, medium sized bag which cost me £1.30 in Tesco however there is a smaller bag available for about 85p and a very large bag for £2.00 as to which now I wish I'd bought the large bag at the rate Myrtle is trying to go through them! The bag has a picture of a cartoon style cat on it and we are told what they are an who they are by and that they are crunchy outside, soft inside, that they contain cheese, that our sized bag contains 30+ servings and the size is stated on then on the back of the bag other information given includes being told abit about the product and that they only contain 2 calories per treat, feeding instructions are given (Feed up to 20 pieces per day), the ingredients are listed and contact details for the manufacturer are also clearly given. The bag has a resealable piece on it and they can stay fresh using that for about 4 weeks.
What can I say?! I am so delighted with these...they must be tasty for Myrtle to love them as much as she does believe me! Small and light brown, square in shape, they are dainty sized biscuits, perfect for a lazy cat like mine to chew! They are very crunchy indeed and Myrtle chews them up very fast, licking her lips as she goes. I have to count up to 20 pieces because Myrtle would eat way more (as does my friends kitten Maizie!). Myrtle won't come to me for them but I place them in front of her and she munches them easily and quickly!
I was very upset at not being able to buy Myrtle little treats or when I did having to give them away. I want her to have and enjoy things and I don't really care what it costs me to give her a nice life so they've have been an absolute Godsend for me! I don't know who likes them more me or Myrtle but I think they are worth every penny they cost! They look good quality, you get plenty in a bag and they're not unhealthy!
Available in all good supermarkets and pet shops and so on and in various flavours.
