Review | Blue Buffalo Mini Blue Bars Dog Biscuits


I'm always on the lookout for healthy, all-natural treats for Andy and Blue Buffalo's Mini Blue Bars Dog Biscuits fit the bill. These biscuits contain no animal by-product meals, no corn/wheat/soy (great for pups with allergies), and no artificial preservatives or flavors. They come in a variety of flavors: Blueberry/Yogurt, Banana/Yogurt, Apples/Yogurt, and Chicken/Cheddar - the first three are completely animal-product free and great for pups with sensitivities to proteins. The biscuits are bite-sized and crunchy and Andy always "sits pretty" with anticipation when he knows he's going to get one. 

The biscuits come in 8oz and 20oz bags and cost around $7.99 and $12.99 respectively. I found these on sale a couple of weeks back at Petco and picked up a 20oz bag of the Apples and Yogurt flavor for $10.39. I know that sounds like a lot to drop on a bag of dog biscuits, but really, when you do the math it's not that bad a deal when they're on sale. Because these treats are on the pricier side I tend to dole them out sparingly, 1-2 a day, and so far after 2 weeks we still have about half the bag left. I tend to rotate through different brands and types of treats, picking up whatever is on sale as long as it's manufactured in the USA and all-natural, and would definitely purchase these Mini Blue Bars again in the future.
