whoz yo daddy? big daddy biscuits, and a giveaway!

Big Daddy Biscuits is an Atlanta-based business founded by Lauren Janis and her American Bulldog known as, yup, BIG DADDY. What I love about Janis’ company is her passion for keeping it all “locavore.” This translates into supporting the local farmers in her area through sustainable, organic ingredients. Epic tragedy around receiving the package from our mail carrier aside (another story and not at all related to Janis’ awesome customer service and shipping skills), I was stoked to finally get my hands on a bag of Big Daddy goodness!

 Janis sent over some of their Crunchy Peanut Butter ($5/5oz bag) treats. Here’s what they’re made of:

Certified organic whole wheat flour
Fresh ground organic peanut butter
Farm fresh eggs
Fresh oats
Organic cornmeal from Red Mule Farms in Athens, GA
Java could not wait to wrap her teeth around her treats!
You recognize all of those ingredients, right? Now take a look at the contents of another company’s dog treats:
Brewers dried yeast
Wheat flour (so far I’m trackin’)
Corn germ meal
Yellow 5, Red 40, Blue 1, Yellow 6 (uhhh, you are losing me)
Poultry by-product meal
Hydrogenated startch hydrolysate
Sorbic acid
Animal digest (WTH?!)
Animal fat preserved with mixed-tocopherols
Partially hydrogenated vegetable oil
Get the point?
Janis says, “What’s good for people is also good for our animals and buying local just makes sense, regardless of who is consuming the products.” Now that’s something I can wrap MY teeth around!
With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I know most of you are wondering what to get your furry  companion. Big Dog is at the ready with their special Valentine’s Day treats. Your canine companion will love you more when s/he sees their X’s and O’s.
