Castor & Pollux Debuts New ORGANIX Jerky Chip Cookies for Dogs
Castor & Pollux Natural Petworks, maker of organic and natural pet products, expands its treat offerings with the launch of ORGANIX Jerky Chip Cookies. The all-natural dog biscuits are wholesome, meaty treats, which are oven-baked with organic whole grains and protein-packed jerky chips. And the taste? That's right, they're as good as homemade...but for dogs, company officials say.
"We strive to create nutritious recipes for pets and we're thrilled to offer pet parents a healthier, natural treat to share with their dogs," says Todd Martin, vice president of sales and marketing. "Our new cookies uphold our tradition of innovation by delivering a meaty and delicious experience in a crunchy and wholesome biscuit."
ORGANIX Jerky Chip Cookies are oven-baked with organic whole grains -- organic oatmeal, organic barley, organic brown rice, organic oat flour -- and protein-packed with jerky chips from high-quality proteins like chicken, salmon, beef and lamb. The cookies also contain organic fruits and vegetables including organic peas, organic apples and organic carrots, and contain no corn, soy or wheat.
The cookies are available in four new flavors, including Oatmeal & Salmon, Oatmeal & Beef and Oatmeal & Lamb, as well as Oatmeal & Chicken that is made with 95% organic ingredients (including organic chicken) and bears the USDA Organic logo on the front of the bag.
"What's more, our cookies are made in the USA and don't include ingredients from China, which we believe is especially important given recent pet parent confusion about the safety of jerky treats," Martin adds. "We can't wait to hear what pet parents have to say about them."
One hundred pet parents nationwide -- their dogs, actually -- are currently sampling ORGANIX Jerky Chip Cookies for the first time. Castor & Pollux has asked the pet parents to sound off on social media with hashtag #ASmartCookie. To view the ongoing conversation, please visit their Facebook page or hashtag gallery.
ORGANIX Jerky Chip Cookies are available in 10-ounce bags, and have a suggested retail price of $7.99.
