Ask most people where their freshest and most delicious meals are stored and they’ll probably point at the fridge or the freezer. If it’s dinner time than they might happily point to the delicious smells emanating from the dining room. But one place they probably won’t point is the dog food bowl. But an article published by the Daily Herald suggests that people might begin to do so. In fact, the article begins with an unusual take on a holiday classic. Executives in one dog food company end the tour by taking a big bite out of their Chunky Chicken and Turkey Recipe. One of them proudly proclaims that the poultry based treat tastes just like thanksgiving. The article offers another example in the “he’ll have what you’re having” ad campaign. It highlights dog food recipes which harken back to everything from beef stroganoff to lasagna. From start to finish the article details some of the more unexpected areas in which high quality dog food is showing up. But one of the single most unexpected places to find this type of high quality gourmet dog food is in one’s own cupboard. Because many people are buying similarly high quality brands without even realizing it. One of the best examples of this is Beneful. The company’s dog food is almost always listed among the top five in the country. But most people buying it never stop to really examine just what’s in the food. When one actually looks at the dog food it quickly becomes apparent just how different it is than most other brands. The biggest visual distinction comes from the fact that one can actually see real ingredients within it. When people sit down for a meal it’s usually quite obvious what types of meat, vegetables and other fresh ingredients went into the meal. And the same goes for Beneful’s dog food. Because it’s made with fresh ingredients one can actually see the chunks of chicken, beef or healthy vegetables within the high quality dog food brand. And the dogs themselves are usually quick to show just how much that means to them. Because when they bite down on Beneful dog food, they’re actually feeling the natural juices and textures. And that can mean the world to a dog.
