Delectable - The First Lickable Stew Treat for Dogs

*Sponsored in partnership with Hartz.  All opinions are of my own.  

Our pets are family and we should treat them as such!  We have two dogs, a pit boxer mix and a small terrier mix.  It's funny how much they differ but still can not be away from each other!  Our larger dog eats quite a bit! In fact he robs our little one of her food sometimes.  But she totally lets him!  Because of this, we often give her small treats throughout the day, something special for her in between meals.  Hartz now has the perfect "in-between" meal treat!  Perfect for small dogs, Delectables Stew is a yummy and lickable wet dog treat for those who love to pamper their pets.  These convenient, single-serve pouches provides doges with appealing, low-fat treats made with real chicken, beef, cheese and vegetables, without meat by-products.   We let both our dogs try this product and both love it!  It was just the right amount to tide them over in between meals.  

  • Available in four varieties, including Chicken, Chicken with Cheese, Chicken with Beef & Chicken Senior Formula
  • A Single serve package retails at about $1.00
  • Low-fat & made with high-quality protein & vegetables
  • Available at Amazon, Walmart & select retailers

Connect with Hartz and share your photos and videos of how your dogs lick up Delectables during the Delectables "Tongue Out Tuesday" Sweepstakes, with the hashtag #LickItLoveIt to participate in weekly drawings for a chance to win Delectables Stew Lickable Treats.

Sharky's Woodfired Mexican Grill

Las Vegas!  We finally have our first Sharky's! I say first because there are more in the works!  It's crazy, I'm from Southern California and I have never heard of this place.  Guess I didn't get out too much.  This place is amazing! Everything was so tender and juicy, just falling apart as soon as I would take a bite.  Sharky's Woodfired Mexican Grill is Mexican food that is organic, healthy and so fresh you can taste it.  I had originally gone in to try their three new tacos they are offering for a limited time, but they were out of the shrimp, so I just got two of them.  Pictured above are my tacos; (from left to right) Steak and Arugula, Slow-roasted Pork Taco and since they were out of shrimp, I went with the Chicken and I am so glad I did!  The chicken was my favorite, hands down!  As I stood in line I could see the chicken being grilled in the kitchen, so appealing! Their chicken has no added preservatives, hormones or phosphates.  While their beef is antibiotic free with no added hormones.  Their corn tortillas are also non-GMO.  I just love everything about these guys!  Jicama-Chipotle Slaw covered the top of the pork taco and was just mouth watering! The food was amazing! It was so hard to choose what to get!  I'm a big salmon lover so next time thinking I'm going to go for the Salmon.  But then I love enchiladas too, and they have stacked enchiladas too! Decisions! LOL! Guess I will just have to keep going back.

Our son ended up choosing the carne asada nachos.  Pictured is the half portion and he ended up only being able to eat half of that, it was huge! My daughter went with the chicken quesadilla and loved it, she stated it was the best one she's ever had! It was over loaded with chicken!  My husband went with the burrito and he didn't go wrong. Everything we tried was so fresh and so good. I cannot wait to go back! Make sure to try their lemonades, pictured is the Watermelon Basil Lemonade - wow! We only got one and between us four, it was gone before we even had our food! Highly recommend this place, be warned, it is very addictive!
