The Honest Kitchen Ice Pups - Product Review

Among the many nommy things included in my Pawalla Box (see my Pawalla Box Review for more info) was a package of The Honest Kitchen Ice Pups mix.

Mom mixed it up last weekend.  All you have to do is mix the packet with 8 ounces of water then freeze it, so even momma was able to do it.  She poured it into an ice tray.  When it was frozen, it looked like this . . .

Mom said it didn't look very appetizing, but she has very strange ideas about what looks appetizing and what doesn't.  

So tonight I tried my first Ice Pup.

Hmmm - what new form of nom is this?

What did I think of it?

Translation: The ice pup was EXTREMELY yummy.  It was cold (which is nice on a hot day) and crunchy (which is always good) and VERY, VERY tasty.  

I give The Honest Kitchen Ice Pups my highest rating of 4 paws up because: 

  • They are very yummy
  • The are made of healthy ingredients that are 100% human grade
  • They are made by a great company that does lots of good stuff, The Honest Kitchen  

These are the ingredients in the Ice Pups mix

We read all about The Honest Kitchen in a little booklet that came in my Pawalla Box.

We learned that they give back to the community by selecting a Charity of the Month to receive a portion of their sales profit each month, they treat their employees well and celebrate diversity in the workplace, they take steps to minimize their environmental pawprint, and they get ingredients from as close to home as possible.  As members of Green America, they are values-driven as well as profit-driven.  This is the type of company we like to support.

But I really think I need another one
in order to fully evaluate this product


  1. I think you need at least 2 more to fully evaluate Ice Pups. I'm gonna tell mom all about them cuz it gets really hot here in NC.

  2. Those do look pretty tasty Garth! I bet Shiner would love some :)

  3. They may not look great but if they are yummy that is what counts. Glad you enjoyed them Garth. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. I think they look yummy! I love that you ate yours on the carpet...I love to eat everything on the carpet which Mom tells me is not a good idea ;) Nice review!

  5. That looked really good Garth! Butt did you know you were munching on dandy-lions and asper-grass? Guess that's one good way to get the veggi's into us :)

  9. Golden LOVE icy treats. Your "look n tongue" says it all. Happy Tasty Tuesday. Don't forget to add this on the blog hop. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  10. Garth, that treat disappeared very quickly! I hope you gave it a few crunches and didn't just swallow it whole. BOL Excellent review...we have heard The Honest Kitchen is very giving!

  11. Haha those pictures of you licking your lips made us laugh! The ingrediants look very healthy, although Cress wasn't too sure at first about the watercress.....don't worry; Daisy soon reassured her!

  12. Garth I think it takes at least three to make an honest review of a food product!

  13. Thanks for the review! We might have to try them.

  14. Koly and Fe are totally in love with Ice Pups, Garth Riley. They actually sit by the chest freezer and whine, asking for one.
