A couple of days ago, Chewy.com sent us their Honest Kitchen Ice Pups to review. They are on sale now for only $0.00, just kidding! That's only because they are temporarily out of stock, LOL. But once they are in stock again the price is $16.45, but as of now they have lowered it to $13.75. They come in a little box that holds 16 packets of food for your dog or cat (perfect for all life stages it says), the packets are roughly 3 ozs each, but it makes 8 ozs of food if mixed like it is suppose to in an 8 oz thing of water. As of 5-19-2015 (the day this post was written) we have 11 packets left of Ice Pups, 16 - 11 = 5 eaten packets of Ice Pups. Ice Pups can be served cold as ice cubes or warm as soup, I have not tried the ice cube method yet, but I'd be surprised if they would eat it. As for the warm method, Anya and Saphira loved it! Star, not so much. Surprising really as Star eats pretty much anything. But I guess that settles that.

I personally choose to not waste the entire food packets per each cat; I use half a packet and the cats share it in their own bowls, lasts twice as long too!
|The whole ingredients list and what not.|
Here is an overview of how I prepared Anya and Saphira's entrees:
- Standard 8 oz measuring cup filled to about 4' with warm (not hot) water.
- Heavy measuring spoon.
- 1 Ice Pups food packet for dogs and cats.
|I have always been amazed at how a solid can float on the surface of a liquid like it is doing here.|
|~ Stirring, stirring ~|
Ice Pups is a wonderful food to travel with as long as you have water. Since Saphira and I travel a lot, these will come in handy!
I am not a big fan of The Honest Kitchen, but this product is good.
|After you stir it it is common for the food to sink back together as powder. Weird.|
|Not sure why this is side ways, but the finished product.|
