The Tale of the Scooby-Doo Food
My mom bought these to snack on while reading in bed. She loves a little treat and especially a cinnamon snack.
Just as she pulled out the first pouch she saw the dog and and saw dog bone shaped "cookies" and hastily put them aside, laughing at herself for almost snacking on dog treats. "I never knew dogs liked cinnamon" she chuckled.
She set them aside for my dog, Gracie and I took them home a day or so later.
We had a good laugh when she showed them to me and I opened a pouch as soon as I got home to give Gracie a treat. The cinnamon sugar scent caught my attention and I looked again at the package. They were Keebler. Elves bake cookies not dog treats.
But these look exactly like dog bones.
I read the nutritional statement. Wait. Nutritional statements are for people food.
I wanted to taste test one, but had a very hard time biting into what looked like a dog bone. I decided to call the number on the package and verify for sure they were cookies. I punched in the number but they were closed.
I paced a bit. I gave Gracie one and she gobbled it up like nothing. Dog treats should be harder to chew, I thought, so I screwed up all my courage and took a bite.
They were cookies.
I noticed the price tag was from Big Lots. Big Lots sell items that didn't make it in the grocery store at full price. $1.30 was pretty cheap and these were marked down again to half that. So who was the genius at Keebler who thought this was a great new product? Would you send these to school in your child's lunchbox? I think not!
Even Big Lots can't sell cookies shaped like dog bones!
