The Sugar Ship is a new company (started in 2015) with a unique product. They contacted us a couple of months ago and asked if we would like to sample and review their product on our blog. We jumped at the opportunity to try something new. We never know when we might find a new food, treat or toy that becomes a favorite.
We kitties, however, were not the only ones excited to try it. So was Mom. The reason: This is not just a product designed for cats or dogs but for humans as well.
So, what is The Sugar Ship’s product? It is a treat-filled, high quality, reusable, canvas tote bag measuring 18″w x 11″h x 3.8″d. The bag features a front pocket with either a cat or dog silhouette imprint. The tote is packed with people snacks and dog treats/dog toys or catnip/cat toys/treats. Totes also can be purchased with only cat or dog products.
This is the purrfect house warming, hostess or holiday gift for the family who shares their home with a furry friend.
People snacks may include nuts, chocolates, hard candies, sweets, pretzels, bagel crisps or artisan snack chips. Many of the products are all natural and organic.
Kitty recipients will enjoy an assortment of brand name cat toys that may include feathers, balls, mice or stuffed birds, as well as edible cat treats and catnip. All cat treats are 100% natural and made in the U.S.A.
Doggies will receive brand name dog toys that may include rope toys, stuffed animals, rubber chew toys and tennis balls, as well as edible dog treats. All dog treats are healthy, natural and made in the U.S.A.
Totes with treats are priced between $25.99 for a pet only tote up to $49.99 with treats for both humans and pets. Shipping is free.
Here’s what the humans received in our tote:
Our humans don’t eat a lot of sugary sweets, and they prefer dark chocolate so the two center items were gifted to our kitty sitter, Chris (to her delight). The rest of snacks didn’t last long. Mom really enjoyed the tea candy. She’d never had anything like it before and found it tasty and refreshing.
The kitty items in our tote were the bomb!
We of course enjoyed the toys and catnip, but our very favorite thing was the Pure Bites 100 percent natural, freeze-dried, chicken breast cat treats. In fact, some kitty got their paws on the closed packet after we’d tried them, and helped her/himself by tearing the package apart. But we give all the items a gold star.
Every purchase supports pet adoption.
All tote bags include information on the charity that has been supported through your purchase. The Sugar Ship donates five percent of proceeds from all tote bags to humane societies, no-kill animal shelters and rescues working to save lives through pet adoption and spay/neuter initiatives.
We encourage you to visit The Sugar Ship’s website to learn more about the company and try their products. You also will have the opportunity to meet their adorable, rescued pets/mascots: Pirate Pawpaw, Shipmate Shyly and Sailor Sweet.
