Tanker Tots Dog Treats Review

Hi everyone! I hope you're all having a fabulous Tasty Tuesday! Today I have a review for you on some amazing treats from a awesome small business called Tanker Tots. I was so excited when Jessica contacted me and asked me to review her treats. Zoe and Phoenix are always so happy when they get to try out new treats!

We received our treats in exchange for an honest review but we were not given any monetary compensation.

About Tanker Tots:
Jessica and her husband, Elliot started Tanker Tots in July 2011 from their home in Bedford, VA. Their business is named after their dog, Tank. Tank is an adorable basset hound / labrador cross. As a puppy, Tank's legs were short and stubby, reminding Elliot of tanker tots and they promptly nicknamed him "Tanker Tot". Considering his nickname and that the treats are made of sweet potato, it seemed fitting to name the company after their beloved furry companion.

I think Tank is adorable and I had to share a picture of him with everyone!

Tanker Tots Natural Dog Treats are made from human grade ingredients. This means that top-quality ingredients are purchased from the human food marketplace. Elliot and Jessica make the dog treats this way because they believe our pets deserve the best quality treats. 

In addition to making biscuits, the company also offers Pupcakes and Pill Dough (like pill pockets)! 

We received the three flavors of biscuits that Tanker Tots has available and the girls were so excited to try them! They liked all three treats but their favorite was the Peanut Butter and Banana ones!

About Tots - Sweet Potato Dog Treats:
When we say NATURAL, we mean it! All of the ingredients in our sweet potato dog treats are human grade. We select our ingredients from trusted, quality manufacturers. For example, Virginia grown & unsalted peanuts are purchased directly from a farmer and used to make the peanut butter from scratch for the Peanut Butter & Banana flavor. 

Every order of Tots is baked fresh and there are no minimum orders. The tots have a 3 month shelf life.

Peanut Butter & Banana Ingredients: Millet, Sweet Potato, Peanut Butter, Banana, Egg,Vitamin E (natural preservative)

The Peanut butter and banana treats are made with homemade peanut butter!

Cheddar Cheese Ingredients: Millet, Sweet Potato, Egg, Dehydrated Cheddar Cheese, Vitamin E (natural preservative) 

The Cheddar Cheese treats are great for picky eaters! They have a wonderful and strong cheesy smell.

Sweet Potato Pie Ingredients: Millet, Sweet Potato, Egg, Cinnamon, Vitamin E (natural preservative)

The Sweet Potato Pie treats are low calorie and have limited ingredients. These would be great for dogs who suffer from allergies. 

Tanker Tots have NO corn, wheat, soy, gluten, salt, or sugar. Tanker Tots are also FREE of artificial colors, preservatives, & flavorings
All three of the flavors are a biscuit-like consistency. They break apart easily with minimal crumbling. I also appreciate the smaller size.

Overall I am very impressed with Tanker Tots as a whole. Jessica was excellent to work with. She is such a nice person and even contacted me to make sure my treats arrived safely. The treats, oh the treats!! They smell AMAZING. No joke. I wanted to try them! The girls were excited about the package before I even opened it and they absolutely loved the treats we got. I would definitely recommend checking Tanker Tots out!
