Wellness Gravies Variety Pack Cat Food from Chewy.com #chewyinfluencer


 
 
Hey there! I cannot believe that its already the middle of March! Where does the time go? This month, I became a Chewy.com Influencer and I so excited to bring you my very first product review. One of the items I chose this month was from Wellness. Wellness sells a variety of pet items including cat food. I chose to purchase their Gravies Variety Pack because my two kitties LOVE wet foods that are full of gravy.


Chewy.com is my go-to for all of my pet needs. At home, we have two cats, two dogs, 2 rabbits, a hermit crab, fish and 4 chickens! A zoo, I know. But, I wouldn't have it any other way. Chewy.com makes it easy for me to search and purchase all of the pet items that I need. Their website is so easy to navigate and I love that there are so many items to choose from. And, they are delivered within two days of purchase (on purchases over $49)! I have noticed that their prices are either the same or lower than their competitors.

Wellness is all about feeding our pets the best food possible. Nutrition is the key ingredient to happy, healthy pets and Wellness gets that. Their recipes are thoughtfully crafted and prepared. We all do everything we can for our furry friends and thanks to Wellness, our pets will not be eating junky, cheap foods. Wellness offers both cat and dog foods. Learn more about Wellness HERE.


The Gravies Variety Pack came with two flavors:

  • Bits of Chicken & Turkey Smothered in Gravy. This flavor is loaded with all natural pieces of chicken, turkey, chicken liver and carrots. This yummy flavor also contains eggs, blueberries, cranberries, chicken broth and nutrients such as Vitamin D3 and B12.


  • Bits of Tuna & Mackerel Smothered in Gravy. This flavor is loaded with chunks or chicken, mackerel, tuna and chicken liver. This flavor also contains eggs, chicken broth, cranberries, blueberries and vitamins and nutrients.


My Thoughts

My kitties seemed to really love both of these flavors. But, they did seem to love the Chicken & Turkey flavor better. I really love that the food is all natural and that they do not contain any meat by products, artificial flavors, grains or carrageenan. Miss Molly pictured below LOVES wet food with lots of gravy. So, she really enjoyed licking all of the gravy off and them she nibbled on the soft chunks of food. After eating Wellness Gravies for about two weeks now, I have noticed softer fur and my kitties seem to have a lot more energy. I will be keeping Wellness Gravies stocked in my pantry for my two furry kitty friends!

This was my very first time ordering from Chewy.com. I got my shipment within 2 days! It's nice to know that I can have everything my pets need, delivered right to my door! It was one of the best online shopping experiences I've ever had. Thanks, Chewy.com! Order Wellness Gravies from Chewy.com HERE!

Chocolate Dreams Sleek Treat Subscription Box Review


 
 
Hey there! I am sharing with you today the Chocolate Dreams Sleek Treat Box! This amazing snack subscription box is loaded with yummy low carb, low/no sugar goodies! This month contains a lot of chocolate products and I am not complaining! I love chocolate! Sleek Treat sends a great variety of snacks each month. There is at least 6-8 snacks in the box each month. See what was inside the Chocolate Dreams box below!



Coco Polo 70% Dark Chocolate Bars are vegan, gluten free, and sugar free. I really liked this chocolate bar. First of all, this bar is big enough to share. Second, it reminds me of a Hershey's Crackle candy bar, but 100% better for me. This was my first time having a chocolate bar that had quinoa in it and I am impressed!



 

The Kiss My Keto Chocolate Coconut Ketogenic Bar was very flavorful. I really enjoyed the coconut flavor that this bar had. The chocolate coating was rich and delicious! This bar is not only great for a snack, but it good as a breakfast bar, too!




Tru Chocolate Dark Chocolate Covered Almonds are super good! I did notice though that the almonds were kinda soft. The chocolate coating was very good. But, all in all, a delicious chocolate and nut snack! Chocolate covered almonds are usually my go-to.




The Tru Chocolate Solid Dark Chocolate Bites I was not crazy about. This dark chocolate just did not taste good to me. I did however like the size of these chocolates.



Intakt Snacks Crunchy Cheese Lovers Original is one of my favorite cheese snacks! I love these little nibbles of cheesiness! They're super crunchy and made with the best tasting cheese! Intakt Snacks has several flavors but this one is by far my favorite.


Project 7 Cotton Candy Gourmet Gum was really good! You'd never be able to tell that this gum is sugar free. My kids of course loved the cotton candy flavor. I really enjoyed this gum, too. Chewing on a piece reminded me of a big, fat cotton candy from the fair!


Dr. John's Candies Sunkissed Fruits Tooth Lollipops were another kid favorite. My sons devoured these lollipops. I only got to try a lick! I love that they are in the shape of a tooth! How cute is that!



SkinnyMe Chocolate Truffles are really good. This box contained a mystery flavor. My box contained the Velvety Mocha Dark Chocolate flavor. Oh my goodness, these truffles are SO good! A creamy, flavorful truffle without the guilt!

Look at all of these goodies! Which product(s) would you like to try?) 
 
 
Every box comes with a cute information sheet.
 
My Thoughts

Sleek Treat really hit a home run with their Chocolate Dreams box. I love getting Sleek Treats boxes! They're always loaded with the best snacks. Especially this one! My favorite product in the Chocolate Dreams box is the SkinnyMe Truffle! Subscribe today and start getting low carb, low/no sugar snacks delivered right to your door!

Degusta Box USA Review- February


 
Hey! I have some sad news! Degusta Box USA is pausing the production of their boxes! Which means, February's box is the last box! I know, it really stinks. But, I believe that they will be back up and running (fingers crossed) soon. Lets see what was inside February's box:

  • Manitou Trading Company Truffle, Parmesan & Black Garlic Seasoning
  • Maqnitou Trading Company Piri Piri Sauce
  • Just Add Classic Guacamole Quick Mix
  • Raindrops Candy Taco
  • Emmy's Organic Vanilla Bean Coconut Cookies
  • PopCorners Spicy Queso Chips
  • BeanSmash! Bean Dip
  • Sourdough Craft Beer Pretzel Rings
  • PB Fit Peanut Butter Powder

My Thoughts

When I opened up February's box, I noticed that the goodies were slim so I knew that something was up. I am super sad to see this subscription box go, and I hope that they resume production very soon. My favorites this month were Emmy's Cookies and the Just Add Guacamole Mix. Degusta Box is one of my favorite food subscriptions boxes and I will miss all of the amazing goodies that I have received over the years. Thanks, Degusta Box USA. And, please keep me in mind when production starts up!

KitNipBox a Subscription Box for Kitties- Review


 
 
Hey! Do you have cute kitties at home and love to spoil them? I have two! A Siamese/tabby mix and a tuxedo kitty. I came across KitNipBox, a subscription box for cats and I knew that my kitties would love it! Sure enough, they did! Most of the time they don't play with toys. One likes to play with twist ties and the other likes playing with Legos. To my surprise, both of them have been playing non stop with the toys inside the KitNipBox ever since I opened it!

 
What was inside our KitNipBox?? 
 
 
All For Paws Airplane Wand- This is Puma's favorite toy. My sons love  him with it and they love how he bites and chews the airplane on the end.

Dream Cat Handmade Night Sky Kicker- Puma grabbed this toy right out of the box and started rubbing up against it. He was biting it and throwing it up in the air so he could bat at it. Must be the cat nip! :)

MAX Crescent Moon Toss Toy- Is definitely fun to toss. Molly likes laying on this one. It has a strong cat nip smell!

Kitty Felt Cardinal- This toy is my personal favorite. I love bright red cardinals! My kitties love the black tail feathers!

MAX Rocket Ship- I love the stray pieces that are hanging of the bottom of this cute rocket ship. So did my kitties! I love how bright and colorful this toy is!

All For Paws Cloud Pillow- I love this cute cloud pillow. Its super soft. Molly uses it as her pillow on her cat bed!

PureBites  Freeze Dried Small Minnows- Molly loved these freeze dried minnows! Perfect treat for my sweet kitties!


My Thoughts

Keeping our kitties happy and busy is sometimes tough. I am not going to lie, its tough to find toys that they will actually play with! This subscription box was a home run! They loved everything inside! I am a happy kitty mom not only for the fact that they love the goodies, but because the toys are made very well. They have been playing and chewing on them for about 2 weeks now, and the toys are still in really good shape! Just a fee teeth holes here and there. :) KitNipBox is highly recommended by me. It's the best cat box I've seen! A portion of processed are donated to animal welfare causes. Even more of a reason to sign up!

January's Sleek Treat Subscription Box Review


 
Hey! Sleek Treat is one of my favorite snack subscription boxes. It's one of my favorites because all of the snacks inside contain low sugar or no sugar at all! January's Power Up box contained 8 different brands. 12 snacks in total. Sleek Treat is a monthly subscription box that contains new and excited snacks each month. Their boxes are great for everyone! See what's inside of January's Power UP box below!

 

The Bhu Foods Chocolate Chip Protein Cookie was good, but when I opened up the package, the cookie was in pieces. As I was trying it, it was just crumbling in my fingers. BUT, this is a great flavorful protein cookie. I can definitely taste the protein in it. Probably because it contains 10 grams! Which is awesome. Bhu Foods' Protein Cookie has no sugar and it is a great snack to enjoy before or after a workout. Coupon: SleekBhu for 10% off your order.


The Good Chocolate is very good chocolates. I love how dark the chocolate is. It's almost so dark that its bitter. But, definitely in a good way. The yummy ingredients added into the chocolate really balances out the flavor. The trio included Mint, Himalayan Salt and Signature Dark. I really enjoyed the Himalayan Salt. I love The Good Chocolate chocolates because they are low calorie, contain no sugar, they are handmade and they help prevent cavities!  Coupon: #TGCsleektreatFEB19 for 15% your order.


Noosh Almond Butter is my favorite almond butter. The flavors that they have are amazing! January's box contained a trio of flavors: Original, Chocolate and Birthday Cake. The Birthday Cake is definitely my favorite. Noosh's Almond Butters are so good that I eat them right out of the package! The almond butters are smooth and silky and contain less than 1 gram of sugar. Coupon: SleektreatXNoosh for 15% off your order.



The Gorilly Goods Hillside Trail Mix was okay. I love pumpkin seeds but the seasoning on them was a bit overbearing for me. The pumpkin seeds were fresh and crunchy. I would love to try another flavor of trail mix from Gorilly Goods. Their trail mixes have absolutely no sugar. Coupon: SLEEKTREAT for 20% off your order.



Just The Cheese Crunchy Mini Toasted Cheese snack is so good! These mini toasted cheeses are super crunchy and flavorful. They are made with 100% all natural Wisconsin Cheese and have no sugar. I skip the potato chips and grab a bag of these! Coupon: SLEEKTREAT for 10% off your order.


Vitalize Mints in Sour Cherry are made with 100% Xylitol. These little light pink mints really pack a punch. Not only do they taste good, but they help remove bad breath caused from stinky foods. I love the sour cherry flavor. Coupon: SLEEKTREAT15 for 15% off your order + free shipping.


Nuti Light To-Go Hazelnut Spread is made with dark chocolate. This spread has no sugar in it. It is sweetened with Stevia, Chicory Root Fiber and Erythritol. I am all for hazelnut spreads and this one is very good. I love its smooth, creamy texture. Goes so well with pretzels but I like to eat it with a spoon! Coupon: sleektreat for 15%  off your order.




Grenade Birthday Cake Protein Bars are loaded with 20 grams of protein. Each bar contains only 2 grams of sugar. This is a protein bar that I will actually eat. It's flavors are a home run in my book. I mean, who doesn't love birthday cake?? Grenade's protein bars are soft, chewy and they are big! Enough to keep my belly full for hours! Love the added sprinkles on the tops of these!

 


My Thoughts

My favorite snack this month was definitely the Noosh Almond Butters. I really love them, a lot!  It's amazing how Sleek Treat can fit so many delicious snacks into one small box! The snack in January's box was one of my favorites. Sleek Treat really does an amazing job finding snacks for their boxes. It was great to see that almost all of the brands supplied special $$ off coupon codes!
