Delectables dog treats are a new low-fat, lickable treat that come in 2-ounce pouches. They are in a “stew” format with pieces of meat and veggies in a stew sauce.
My dogs Ace and Remy loved Delectables and this was a fun treat to give them.
To serve, you open the pouch and pour into a bowl as a treat between meals or as a topper or mixer. The treats come in four flavors.

Delectables dog treat review
My thoughts on Delectables
I was happy to receive Delectables treats for my dogs Ace and Remy. Since we received a pack of 12, I let them both try it and my cats even had a taste! They were all super excited about this, and this was a fun treat to give them. (The dog version is not intended for cats but there is a cat version available.)
The ingredients in Delectables are OK. I’m comfortable feeding this product to my pets as a treat, but it does contain corn and artificial flavors. When I open a pouch, it reminds me of the canned soups and stews I sometimes buy for myself!
Delectables chicken with beef ingredients, according to the package:
water, chicken, beef, peas, carrots, corn, natural and artificial flavors, tapioca starch, rice flour, guar gum, carrageenan, xanthian gum, locust bean gum and a vitamin E supplement.
What is the cost?
The cost for a 2.1-ounce pack is about $1. They are available in 12-packs at Walmart and on Amazon for about $12.
What’s unique about the product?
Delectables stews are marketed as “lickable” treats, which is a cute idea. They come in small, single-serving pouches designed as a quick treat for your dog.
The nice thing about Delectables is you can just serve the whole thing as a treat and you don’t have to worry about re-sealing it for a later meal. I don’t like when I need to store half-used cans of pet food in my fridge.
Delectables are also low-fat treats, which is good if you’re trying to watch your dog’s calories. I believe fat in moderation is good for my dogs so I don’t care if their treats are low fat.
Pros of Delectables treats:
- Made with real chicken and veggies!
- No by-products
- Very appealing to my dogs and my cats
- Short list of ingredients
- Low-fat treat, if you’re trying to watch calories
- Affordable treat! Just $1 per 2.1-ounce serving
- Don’t need refrigeration if unopened so you can easily toss in a bag for travel, hiking, etc.
- Helps encourage picky eaters to eat
- Works for hiding pills!
- There are four flavors but they all contain chicken (some dogs have allergies to chicken)
- Contains some artificial flavors
- Contains corn (not necessarily bad but some dogs have allergies to corn)
I would recommend Delectables for …
I would recommend Delectables if you’re looking for an affordable treat for your dog in a stew format, perhaps as a treat between meals. This is not really a training treat but more of a fun surprise to give your dog just for being awesome! They are available on Amazon HERE.
Sometimes I need to give my senior dog medication mid-day and I was able to hide his pills in the Delectables stew. He will spit his pills out if I hide them in turkey slices so this was a better option.
If you have a picky eater, Delectables would probably make most dogs interested in their food if used as a mixer.
The four flavors include:
- Chicken with beef
- Chicken with cheese
- Chicken senior formula
If you would prefer not to feed your dog artificial flavors or corn, then I would not recommend these treats.
