    dry, dog and cat food.

    Was salty, okay too eat in small amounts. I don't know because I'm vegetarian lol.
    My cousin used to eat it as a snack.

    Yes, I've tasted a piece of kibble and have bitten a corner off of a biscuit, but there's no way in hell I'd be brave enough to try the canned stuff.

    Kibble and biscuits taste really gross, for the record.

    I've tried some of the Three Dog Bakery stuff and y'know, the Lick n' Crunch aren't half bad...they're basically slightly less sweet oreos. The little cookie thingys...can't remember what they're called right now...they're edible but not near as much fun as the LnC.

    Same as Grace, I've tried kibble and a biscuit (a long time ago). Both were disgusting.

    same. Except i bought Milo some of that carrot cake flavored canned food as a treat, and when i opened it it smelled JUST like carrot cake. So i took a tiny tiny tiny taste on a fork and it tasted just like carrot cake too.

    biscuits taste like putting baking soda and beef jerky in your mouth.

    Dry kibble--yes/ Not good. I like the texture though, lol. I Alllllmosttttt tired the kitties canned wet one night because it smelled better than MY dinner. How the fluck does canned chicken and god knows what else smell better than chicken noodle soup? Grr. I do admit I love smelling their breath an hour or so afterwards... when the smell fades it leaves a very sweet, perfumy scent behind in their whiskers.

    I've licked a rawhide before. Couldn't really taste much.

    I've tried cat and dog treats.. the kitties used to have some crap treats that were so good I'd eat them myself. Now I shudder to think at what I was actually eating.. I avoid the shelf with those treats on it, as I really don't want to see the ingredients.

    I've thought about trying some of the Newman's Own biscuits... the ones with apples in them. They look kinda like cookies... I bet they taste good... but somehow I can never bring myself to try 'em.
    I sometimes put some of the Itty Bitty Bones from TDB in my mouth while I'm grooming Auggie (hands full, put biscuits in mouth) and they don't taste gross, but I can't say I've really "tasted" them as much as just had 'em in my mouth.

    The smelly stuff I'm not the least bit tempted to try, though. Yeuck.

    charliebear cookies in the cheese flavor taste like organic cheesenips (you know how the organic cheese goods taste a little blander?) there actually not bad and have less calories would work as long as your freinds newver found out what your snacking on lol.

    the merrick wet food when heated tastes like stew, its actually GOOD, we know this 100% by accident when dad thought a plate of wet food that mum had just put out was stew for dinner, he zapped it in the microwave and loved it...that was the grammies...lol.

    royal canin dryfood is kinda salty,
    and merrick dry is actually meaty tasting so it explains why my picky eaters will eat it.
    i DO NOT like the texture of kibble though (im not a crunchy fan)

    the organic human grade dog cookies are ok bepending on brand, the carob chip cookies are not bad but VERY bitter...if you REALY like very dark chocolate, then carob is perfect...
