Rachael Ray Dog Treats! Nutrish Turkey Burger Bites Made with Real Turkey!
It is summertime, time for grilling burgers! The sun is warm, the grass is green, and the grill is primed and ready. We are enjoying the taste of summer, why should our pups miss out? They don’t have to if you have some Rachael Ray’s Nutrish Burger Bites handy! These treats are made with real meat and absolutely no meat by-products.
Simba and I have a brand-new bag of Rachael Ray’s Turkey Burger Bite to taste test and check out for you here today. The turkey recipe Burger Bites is fairly new to the scene, so we are going to check them out.
What Makes Them Special
There is a lot about these super chewy little turkey Burger Bites that make them special. Let’s hit the important points.
The number one ingredient in these turkey burger bites is U.S. farm-raised turkey! The complete ingredient list for these turkey Burger Bites is:
- Dried potatoes
- Vegetable glycerin
- Sunflower lecithin
- Sorbic acid (natural preservative)
- Natural smoke flavor
- Caramel color
- The citric acid (natural preservative)
- Mixed tocopherols (natural preservative)
- Rosemary extract
If you are curious about the purpose of any of these ingredients the Nutrish website offers an ingredient lookup tool so you can learn about each and every ingredient. Knowledge is power!
Turkey is less commonly used in dog foods and treats so if you have a dog with food sensitivities these might be less likely to cause a flare-up.
Source of Ingredients
Ingredients used in Nutrish products are never sourced from China. Not to say products from China aren’t good, but there have been links in the past to poor quality ingredients from China being used in pet foods and treats. This has caused people to be sensitive to ingredients from China being used in pet products.
U.S. farm-raised meat is the number one ingredient in both the turkey and beef Burger Bite recipes.
Ingredients are not only sourced in the U.S. but treats are also cooked in the U.S.
Appearance & Texture
I’m just going to get it right on out there and admit that one of the additional reasons these Burger Bites are special is because they’re so darn cute. They look like little tiny turkey burgers; they even have the little grill lines on them (but what would you expect from a world-famous chef, the burgers have to look right!) Okay, the grill lines are kind of a fluff thing. The dogs don’t care if the grill lines are there but it makes the treats more appealing to the human eye!
These burger bites are super soft! This texture will make them a breeze to break into smaller pieces for smaller dogs or for training. I believe the extremely soft texture of these treats will also make them easier to eat for dogs with dental problems or few teeth.
Helping Shelter Animals
Not only are the treats special, but Rachael Ray has grown her business to be special as well. A portion of the proceeds from each sale of a Nutrish product is donated to The Rachael Ray Foundation which helps shelter animals in need. As of March 2018, The Rachael Ray Foundation has donated over $27 million to animal charities and organizations that help animals.
Each little turkey burger bite contains about 21 kcal. These treats are a pretty decent size so a higher calorie count is expected. Keep an eye on how many you feed, these extra calories can add up fast!

Size, Cost and Where to Buy Them
Both the turkey and beef flavor Burger Bites can be purchased in a 3-ounce bag or a 12-ounce bag.
It appears that you can order directly from the Rachael Ray website but when you click to order it just sends you to a different store site such as Walmart or Chewy.com.
The Nutrish website indicates they are available online from Amazon, Chewy, Jet, PetSmart, Target, and Walmart.
When I handed Simba the bag to hold for a photo she was more interested in trying to chew it open than sitting still. Simba absolutely devoured these treats! You should’ve seen the smile on her face!
After about 10 minutes or so she must’ve decided that she needed more because she started actually barking at me. Manners don’t usually get that bad unless she REEEALLLY wants what I have.
