Fruitables Skinny Minis Watermelon Flavor Review

A while back, we won a bag of Fruitables skinny minis Watermelon treats from Lindsay at Thanks, Lindsay!

Happy Chewy with his Fruitables
These watermelon flavor treats are flower-shaped, mini-sized, soft, and chewy. They are free of gluten, wheat, corn, soy and artificial flavors/colors, and are made in the USA. At just 2 1/2 calories apiece, they are great for pups who need to watch their caloric intake.

Big paw, tiny treat

They come in a convenient zipper pouch, and you get a big whiff of watermelon + pumpkin smell when you open the bag. Pumpkin is the first ingredient in this and many other Fruitables products because of its health benefits and palatability. The high fiber and low fat content of pumpkin makes it a great ingredient for weight management, and the presence of soluble and insoluble fibers can help soothe both diarrhea and constipation. 

Om nom nom...

Despite the small size, Chewy still chews each individual piece before swallowing, without generating crumbs! They are rather fragrant, and would be great for playing Find the Treat. Their size and non-crumblyness are perfect for stuffing a treat-dispensing toy.

More, please?

These treats were motivating enough to get Chewy to climb into a box and lie down in it. He simply followed a trail of treats while I blocked the side (so he'd actually have to step into the box to reach the treats, because Chewy is a pro cheater).

However, they weren't motivating enough to get him out of the box. He was a bit hesitant about how to step out, and he wasn't going to try just for some itty bitty treats.

Comfy cozy. I'll stay here, thanks.
They were definitely drool-worthy, though.

Overall, we give Fruitables Skinny Minis Watermelon Flavor treats 3 1/2 paws up. Chewy thought they were yummy, and I liked that they were healthy, low-calorie, and not messy. However, they were not the most motivating treats, which can be a problem during training sessions with a stubborn pup.
