We are long time fans of Zuke’s and have reviewed many of their products over the years, including their original Skinny Bakes treats. So naturally I was really excited to try out their new Skinny Bakes 20swhich are made with coconut and superfood berries.
The original Zuke’s Skinny Bakes had 10 calories each and they have expanded with treats that are 2, 5, and 20 calories respectively. I chose the 20s because I thought coconut and berries sounded really delicious and a nice break from meat flavored treats. These are also a great option for dogs with a protein intolerance.
The Skinny Bakes 20s are a larger size but the perforation down the middle makes it easy to snap them in half. Like the original Skinny Bakes, these smell amazing (kind of like blueberry muffins) and you can see the berries throughout every cookie.
Skinny Bakes 20s are not grain-free but like all Zuke’s treats they are free of wheat, corn and soy. They come in 3 flavors: Coconut & Acai, Coconut & Aronia Berry and Coconut & Pomegranate. The ingredients are listed below for the Coconut Acai variety (the only ingredient that changes is the type of berry):
Brown Rice, Pearled Barley, Rice Bran, Coconut, Acai Berry, Cranberries, Molasses, Cane, Canola Oil, Oat Fiber, Natural Flavor, Mixed Tocopherols.
Overall, while I am glad to see Zuke’s expand their Skinny Bakes offerings, I personally won’t shop based on the calorie count itself. Especially since there isn’t a huge difference between some of the varieties. That said, I would definitely recommend Skinny Bakes 20s because I like that they contain beneficial berries and are tasty. (I’m pretty sure I could eat them in a pinch, don’t tell Pug!)
These will obviously not be a good choice for dogs that have a grain allergy. My dogs do eat grain-free for their main diet but since they don’t have an intolerance they get whole grains in their treats.
