Hemp protein, oil, spirulina +

Hempies and Noochies contain hempseed meal, an excellent source of beneficial, digestible protein, while hempseed oil is incredibly high in polyunsaturated fatty acids.

Hempseed oil contains all essential amino acids required in carnivorous species such as cats and dogs who cannot produce these amino acids naturally. High levels of PUFAs mean hemp oil can provide healthier skin, boost joint health, improve mobility and assist with digestive issues.

Hempies and Noochies also contain spirulina, a genuine superfood, and rich source of micro and macronutrients such as protein, vitamins, gamma-linolenic acid, phycocyanin and sulfated polysaccharides, and has a cell wall consisting of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats that are easily digested so that it has more nutritional content than other vegetable food sources.

Cricket protein and cod liver oil

Crikkies use Australian cricket meal, not only an environmentally sustainable, digestible protein, but also rich in calcium, iron, B12 and B2 vitamins and has three times the amount of omega 3 as salmon.

Green lipped mussel from NZ contains glycosaminoglycans, glucosamine and chondroitin, as well as zinc, and magnesium, all beneficial for good joint health. In addition, green lipped mussel along with cod liver oil, provides omega-3 fatty acids.

The cod liver oil we use, is made from wild caught, sustainably sourced Norwegian Arctic cod. This cod liver oil is rich in omega-3s, including EPA and DHA, which support heart, brain, vision, and joint health, as well as vitamins A and D. 

Crikkies also include nutritional yeast, an inactive form of yeast that's also a complete protein - containing the10 amino acids that dogs need. It's packed with B-vitamins, including B12 (typically only found in meat), has an abundance of trace minerals and the powerful antioxidants glutathione and selenomethionine. It also contains the carbs beta-glucan and alpha-mannan, that boost the immune system.

    Thank God for Bestie Kitchen.

    Have always found Bestie Kitchen to be the best. Any questions about feeding the smallest member of the family, with the largest personality, and orders have been answered promptly and helpfully. As for the product, Nala loves them. With the current mouse ... infestation, Nala is eating more than she should. At least we know she is getting the right nutrients with the Bestie Kitchen products.

    They twitch and jump for their Crikkies

    Their noses begin twitching the moment the heat of my sandwich toaster starts to cook the Crikkies mixture. Between a folded sheet of baking paper I lay the thin chocolate bar shaped mixture, marked with small squares, and slowly cook them on a low heat setting. It can take up to 20 minutes but my geriatric companions don’t care how long it takes. They lay in waiting until they’re cooled enough to eat, then, they know when I’m breaking pieces off for them. That’s when they start jumping. I never feel guilty giving them two as they’re the healthiest treats i have come across in their nearly 15 years. Crikey those Crikkies are good!!

    Thank you Maureen! Smell is a funny thing isn't it? I've had a couple of people say the same as you and others, myself included, love the smell and think it's nutty-sort of and spicy. Glad it tasted good to your girls though!

    Fun, healthy treats!

    Our dogs are important members of our family and I like fussing over them. At the same time I don't forget that they are a different species and therefore have completely different dietary requirements. Since our dogs go for long walks and are generally kept very active it is important for me that they don’t eat empty calories but instead everything they eat is good for them and provides them with the energy they need. I was very excited when I was asked to test Crikkies since I love trying new healthy ways to feed our dogs. I bought some cheap cookie cutters from the supermarket and even though I have very limited cooking and baking skills the biscuits turned out great. While they were in the oven our dog Sylvester waited in front of the oven to make sure he wouldn’t miss his treats once they were finished. All three dogs loved them. I would definitely recommend them since they are such a fun way to reward your dog.

    Thanks so much for being a tester, and for your great review! We are so thrilled Sylvester and co like them…

    Fantastic new product with an interesting main protein source

    I thoroughly enjoyed CRIKKIES as training treats. My dogs really loved it. I think it is a unique alternative to the usual beef / chicken treats, which my dogs really enjoyed. I also loved the idea, that I can bake my own cookies., and next time I'll use my new purchased Snoopy cookie cutters.

And they are quite tasty if I should say so myself. I have a habit of tasting a tiny bit of what I give my little boy except for Raw meat of course.. what an amazing guilt-free product. And you have the privilege of making it yourself.. I recommend this amazing products to every pet parent, you will love yourself for it.

    We Love Crikkies!!

    Love Love Love!! My 3 fur babies thought Christmas had come early when I began making these Crikkies over the weekend. Not to mention how pleased they were when they all got to take turns in licking the bowl This product is such a great idea, especially for us Raw Feeders that are extremely conscious about what we feed our pups. The ingredient list is so interesting and so well thought out. I never knew Crickets were so nutritious!! They are also SUPER EASY to make, even for a novice cook like myself Thanks again Bestie for making yet another fantastic, highly palatable and healthy product for our beloved fur babies.

    Crikkies

    We were one of the lucky ones to test out the Bake-Yo-Crikkies. I am a raw feeder so I am all about making my own treats and knowing EXACTLY what my babies are getting! Full of only the best ingredients you know you are feeding high quality treats, you can also have some fun with them if you are feeling like getting yo bake on I wasn’t aware of Cricket Powder being a ‘thing’ and how beneficial it actually is - we will be including it more in our diets that’s for sure! Thanks again Bestie another great product!
