Milk-Bone Essentials Plus Chewy Treats are just that; Essential! They are a great variation of the classic Milk-Bone because they are chewy, therefore last a little bit longer! They are still very easy to break into smaller pieces if you so desire. They get a little stale after a long time sitting, but that is totally okay because it is like they revert back to the classic dog treats! My dogs love the regular Milk-Bone, so it was no surprise that they loved the Chewy variety as well. It comes in a great resealable bag and stayed fresh longer than most other treats would. The flavor was an instant hit with both my dogs who can sometimes be very picky with treats. I like that they last a little longer than other treats due to the chewy factor, because my dogs tend to scarf any food down too fast because they are always in competition with each other as to who gets more. These are great!
