Yeti Golden Nuggets Review

I am doing this post for two reasons-
        1.  We received some Yeti Golden Nuggets in our March BarkBox, and I am really a fan.
        2.  I am getting quite a bit of traffic from people searching for this term.

The original pieces.
Yeti Golden Nuggets are small pieces of Yeti Dog Chews.  Yeti Dog Chews are a long-lasting dog treat made from yak milk.  They are basically a very hard cheese. I have purchased them in the past, and out of curiosity (and for kicks and giggles) I licked one a few times prior to offering it to a dog.  It pretty much tasted like Parmesan.

The Golden Nuggets are smallish (approximately 1.5" cubes) pieces of the chews.  They are meant to be microwaved, which puffs them up into fairly substantial sized treats.  After microwaving for 60-90 seconds, they are crispy, easily consumed treats.

After microwaving.
I initially microwaved them, on a microwave-safe plate, for 60 seconds, then decided to do another 30 seconds, per package instructions.  They had a very nice, cheesy smell whilst being nuked.  I then set them outside for several minutes (maybe 20?) to cool, prior to offering them to my crew.

The princess, checking it out.

Gimme that treat!

Oh Bruce...
These proved very successful with all three dogs.  They are a "natural", limited ingredient treat that I feel good about giving to them.  It is also a great way to use up a standard Yeti Dog Chew that has been well chewed, and is too small to safely offer the dog for fear of choking.  I will likely purchase more of these in the future.


  1. I love these for our dogs. I have to give them in limited amounts, because they're a bit rich for our pack, but I love having them on hand. They were a hit with our dogs the last time we had them :)

  2. Those look awesome! I hadn't heard of them before your barkbox review!

  3. These do sound great!!

  4. They look and sound great. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. My dogs absolutely love them! Do you know where to buy other than Barkbox? The ones on Amazon look different, so I don't want to risk it.

  6. I checked them out for the first time because of Bark Box too. I've been eyeing them awhile. We got the medium size in my Superchewer box. My 9 month lab seemed to like it, but he will pretty much eat anything. It didn't last as ling as an antler, but it did last 45 minutes or so before I took it to the microwave.


Thanks for the howls!!
