ST. LOUIS — Purina and The Pioneer Woman™, Ree Drummond, have launched a line of dog treats to be sold exclusively at Walmart and Sam’s Club. The nine treat recipes are inspired by Drummond’s own home-style cooking.
"My friends at Purina and I share the same passion for creating tasty, nutritious food and we're committed to bringing high quality ingredients to the forefront," said Drummond. "Pets have always had a special place in my heart, so I'm thrilled that dogs everywhere can now experience a taste inspired by my family's favorite recipes!"
According to Purina, the crunchy and meaty dog treats and chews are formulated with high-quality ingredients. Crunchy treats are available in three varieties: chicken and blueberry waffles; bacon, maple and apple waffles; and classic shortcake biscuits.
The meaty treats are grain-free and available in four varieties: chicken and apple jerky strips; chicken parmesan bites; chicken and sweet potato bites; and beef and brisket BBQ-style cuts.
The limited-ingredient chew treats are bone-shaped, chicken flavored and wrapped in bacon. They are available in two sizes, “drummies” and “lil’ drummies.”
"At Purina we strive to provide best-in-class pet nutrition, and we're excited to explore a new frontier of dog treats with the American-favorite Pioneer Woman brand,'" said Ryan Gass, senior brand manager of Purina Treats. "Both reigning from America's Heartland, we know the value of a home-style meal and now have created a similar experience in the form of a treat for dogs. No matter which flavor you choose, your dog will get a treat he'll love made with ingredients you can trust."
Purina will host an event May 15 at Bryant Park in New York City to promote the new treats, inviting pet owners and their dogs to experience an imitation of Drummond’s Oklahoma ranch and try the new treats.
