King Kong

Not King Kong. A wild Teton in his natural habitat.

A family of Kongs:

And Teton’s very own Kong complete with Kong Stuff’N Sweet Potato Spread:

The Kong Classic Dog Toy is one that we bought Teton when we first adopted him. Needless to say, that one is pretty worn out so when Chewy.com asked if they could send us a new one, we enthusiastically said YES!

One thing Teton had never tried, though, was the Kong Stuff’N Sweet Potato Spread.

Here’s the deal. I don’t love the ingredient list for this stuff, but as an every-once-in-a-while treat it’s not the worst thing out there.

The Kong Stuff’N Sweet Potato Spread is in a toothpaste-like tube and must be refrigerated after opening.

It’s a little tricky to get perfectly inside the Kong, itself, but maybe that’s because I’m a weird perfectionist with things like that and tried to swirl it around the edges like ice cream.

Eh. Good enough.

Unfortunately, eh is what Teton expressed when I gave him the Kong.

He didn’t even lick the inside. Not once.

So, ok. That’s fine. We know Teton is picky. For him, the Kong Stuff’N Sweet Potato Spread isn’t a great choice. Maybe we should have tried the peanut butter variety.

One for two isn’t bad. We looooove our Kong Classic Dog Toy. Here are some of the different ways we use it:

  • Spread peanut butter inside
  • Spread very light peanut butter inside and fill with dry kibble (as a meal); the peanut butter should be just enough so that the kibble sticks to the sides
  • Put a small piece of bread in the top to “seal” it and fill with peanut butter, small treats, etc.
  • Do any of the above and freeze it so it’s extra tough for your dog to get the treat(s) out

If you don’t have a Kong Classic Dog Toy for your pooch, snag one now at Chewy.com because every darn size is under $11!

For puppies, senior dogs, or extreme chewers, Kong offers other options:

Keep your doggo busy this summer by snagging a Kong, filling it up, and freezing it! It’ll be a perfect treat – a Kongsicle! 😀

Happy tails…
