Review & Giveaway: The Honest Kitchen’s ICE PUPS!

You Guys!

The Honest Kitchen sent me a free box of Ice Pups to review. Yes, I know I’m not a pup, but we have one in the house, so the demographic isn’t entirely biased towards cat. We cats here also figured we’d give it a whirl to see what it was all about. So, without further ado, let’s get on with our taste test!

Ice Pups

The Package

Ice Pups is a powdered product that comes in 16 individual packets. The ingredients list is: Dehydrated chicken, turkey, whey, dandelion, asparagus, watercress, honey, and parsley. I looked it up and, according to, dandelion is on the list of ten herbs to improve cat health, having anti-inflammatory properties. Excellent.

The directions say you can make this cold, which requires you to whisk it with warm water and then chill it, or you can freeze it into actual pupsicles, OR, you can serve it as a Steamy Pups when it’s a little chilly outside.

We tasted it warm. MomFOD whisked it with a fork, and she had to whisk hard because it stays a little clumpy. The whisking action brought forth the taste testers, who were eager to get started.

Rocky was the first tester to arrive on scene.

One packet made 8 ounces of liquid, which was promptly consumed by the five of us. We repeatedly switched bowls to make sure no one else got a better tasting one. Turns out, they all tasted the same.

Five bowls for five tasters.

In the end, it was all consumed within minutes, though the package says we have two days to drink it after mixing. I think it’s an excellent product to help get extra fluids into your dog or cat, particularly if they’re dehydrated, ill, or have constipation like my brother Rocky. Maybe that’s why he was so eager to try it out.

Let me taste or I'll perish!

So, we give Ice Pups TWO STUMPS UP!

    • Rocky is MUCH bigger than me. At one point, he hit 24 lbs in his youth, or so I’m told. He’s now down to 13 lbs and the food is kept out of his reach. Except last night at 1 am he knocked the nachos off the top of the fridge and managed to eat one before momFOD came out and removed them from his clutches. He REALLY likes food. Tabbies, enter anyway! It’s not just for pups. It’s delicious! – Crepes.

  2. This is something Dad would like to get us. He makes us treats and food and thinks this would be a tasty additive for our treats.
    Looks tasty
