Petite Fours Subscription Box Review – February 2016
Petite Fours is a gourmet dog treat subscription box. Petite Fours treats are handmade in small batches with no byproducts, artificial flavors, or artificial preservatives. Customization is offered based on dog size as well as ingredients.
Petite Fours provided us with this box for a review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
The Subscription Box: Petite Fours
The Cost: There are a variety of purchase options including a one time purchase (no customization available, $24), a monthly subscription ($21 per box), a bimonthly delivery ($21 per box), or a three month subscription ($57).
The Products: Gourmet treats for dogs with the occasional bag of training treats and/or toy.
Ships to: USA ($6 shipping)
Included in the box were a few cards. One was a standard information card and the other provided more information on this subscription’s earth-friendly packaging.
Zuke’s Skinny Bakes with Pumpkin and Sweet Potato (12 oz) – Value $5.99
One thing I should point out is that Petite Fours really works with you to provide food items that your dog can have, even if there are allergies involved. The box I reviewed last month was more of a general box that you might get if your dog doesn’t have any dietary issues. This month, the choices are geared towards dietary preferences I selected. Anyway, these are vegan and free of wheat, corn, and soy, so theoretically Nyx can have them. They’re also made in the USA!
Simply American Chews 7” Bully Sticks (x 2) – Value $7.98
We selected beef as a protein because Nyx has had good luck with it in the past. Bully sticks are a good choice for dogs who can have beef, since they only have one ingredient. These are also USA-made.
Zuke’s Z-Filets Grilled Beef Recipe (3.25 oz) – Value $5.19
If you’re starting to wonder about repetition of brands and protein sources in this box, I have to give Petite Fours credit. Nyx’s dietary intolerances are super hard to work with. And honestly, they are doing a good job so far. These are grain free and made in the US.
Cloud Star Dynamo Dog Functional Treats with Pumpkin and Ginger Soft Chews (5 oz) – Value $4.86
Again grain free and made in the USA, both of which are awesome for Nyx. These are a bit softer than the other treats in this box and are supposed to support digestive health. Which Nyx surely needs. She is currently on 29 pills a day (4 for pain, 2 for her joints, 5 for urinary tract issues, and the other 18 for her IBD).
There weren’t any toys in this box so here is a gratuitous photo of Nyx from when she was about one year old.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $24 for the February 2016 Petite Fours box. That is a little bit less than the cost of a subscription plus shipping, but I am placing a lot of value in the customization since my dog has so many health issues. That can’t be easy for a dog subscription company to deal with. If you get a longer subscription, the value is a little better, too.
What do you think of the February 2016 Petite Fours box? Do you subscribe to any dog or cat boxes?
