    They look like decent products, as far as commercial pet food goes. I think a lot of the stuff is borderling mimicking other products on the market, but that's what any commercial industry does.

    I'm pleased that Blue has put money into marketing via tv commercials. All of the really crappy foods are the ones you see all over tv (pedigree, iams, eukanuba, beneful, kibbles n bits, etc) and I think a lot of people buy them because the commercials tell them how great and healthy they are and they don't even give it a second thought. Wal Mart even uses Milk Bones and Beneful products in their commercials. You know, those "is his Beneful any less nutritious because I bought it at wal mart" commercials. Hopefully, the Blue commercials will at least get people reading labels and learning more, ya know.


    Whoops, sorry, ever so slightly off topic. lol

    No it's not grain free. I'm not sure about the wilderness though...

    blue does surely seem to have the most protein of any non-grain free dog food though. what is it... something like 33%?

    The wilderness formula does have high protein and IS grain free. I was using the regular adult chicken and brown rice and it had something like 28% protein (don't remember).

    I work at Petsmart and we just got all the new products in. They take up half an aisle!!! lol

    The Basics that they just came out with seems OK, however I'm a bigger fan of Wellness' Simple Solutions. The difference is that Simple Solutions uses only one protein source and one carbohydrate source...Blue uses one protein source but multiple carbohydrate sources.

    Also their Wilderness is NOW grain free, which is great!!! And they now have duck and salmon varieties. However the only source of duck and salmon comes from deboned duck and deboned salmon. The next ingredient on the duck is chicken meal, and the next on the salmon is menhaden fish meal then chicken meal. I would've liked to have seen more duck and more salmon in it than other meats, but that's just my thoughts.
