Seeing as I seem to have gone a little mad doing lots of reviews on dog treats, I thought I would continue the theme and do anther review on my dog's favourite treats! Here I will be reviewing Baker's Crunchers.
Purina Petcare are actually the company that are responsible for producing the Bakers range. Bakers are one of the leading names in dog food - they produce puppy food as well as a complete food for adult dogs and they even do a special low fat food for dogs that need to loose a few pounds. Bakers also produce a specially designed food for dogs with sensitive stomachs which is called Baker's Sensitive and a food for older dogs called Baker's Senior.
As well as producing a large selection of complete food for different types and ages of dogs, they also produce a rather impressive range of treats which are very popular with my dogs!
Bakers Cruncher treats come in a plastic bag which is re-sealable! I really appreciate it when dog treats come in re-sealable bags as it means the treats stay fresh, especially when they are biscuit based treats like these are.
The packet is fairly large, about a foot high, by half a foot wide. The Bakers logo is written across the front of the packet in big white writing. Crunchers is also written across the front with a picture of the Bakers Cruncher on the front underneath the writing.
One the back of the packet is all the usual information about the product, as well as information about the other products that Bakers sell. There is a feeding chart informing you of how many treats you dog should be allowed depending on its size.
I tend to buy these treats at Tesco and they are normally on a buy one get one free offer so you basically get 2 packs for £2. When they are not on this offer, they are usually £1.48 per 350 gram bag.
Many other places sell these and quite often at Pet's At Home they are on offer - 2 for 3 for you get three packets for the price of two - bargain!
As well as making this biscuit Bakers also produce quite a large range of other treats including Sizzlers Bacon and Cheese, Wirlers, Munchy Morsels, Drummers, Sizzlers Bacon and a few more.
The Cruncher Biscuit
The Cruncher Biscuit itself is fairly large for a dog treat. They are about 2 inches long by an inch thick. It is light brown around the outside and then inside the biscuit is a darker colour, sort of a mix between orange and brown. I think these treats look very similar to Marky biscuits in the way the biscuit is designed.
I actually really like the smell of these biscuits! They smell a bit like bacon or beef crisps and obviously you can smell the biscuit too! If I wasn't a vegetarian then I would be tempted to have a taste myself!
These are a firm favourite in my household! My youngest dog Dax is very fussy when he eats but these treats are gone very quickly when I give them to him! I am always keen to find treats that my dog have to sit down and eat rather than these bite size treats which are swallowed whole and don't even get tasted. This is another reason why I like Baker's Cruncher because they are large enough that both my dogs have to chew on them before swallowing. Of course they also take great delight in clearing up any crumbs afterwards too.
These get a 10/10 from me and the dogs. They are always excited when they know they are going to get one of these and as I said, even Dax my fussy dog shows interest in these.
They are good value for money as you probably get around 20-25 biscuits in a packet. At £2 for two packets, I would certainly recommend them!
A real highlight to these is the fact that the packet is re-sealable, it amazes me the amount of dog treats that come in bags which can not be re-sealed, meaning you have to store them in another container.
