I'm an Official Taste Tester

All I can say is, "it's about time." That stupid Mango was always getting offers to try out this toy or that toy or this food or what have you. Me? Nada, nothing, zippo.

Until now...

Yes, finally, the folks at Mr. Chewy contacted yours truly to ask if I would like a free sample of yummers to try. Would I ever!

Lickety split a bag of official Froom's Lamb with Cranberry treats arrived (note, grain free for those of you with sensitive tummies).

"Open up!" I commanded momma. But you know her, always insisting on using scientific methods and what have you, so she devised a taste test to determine where in the hierarchy of yummers these Fromm cookies would fall.

Ready? Watch it here or below:

Maybe not as good as carrots or liver or blueberries, but still sparagas eyeballs yummy!

Dexter done!


  1. Yowzers! Good thing we were sitting down for that video... that was most exciting!

    Sam and Pippen

  2. Now for this to be a TRUE scientific experiment, you need to have your Momma repeat the experiment but with the dishes in different orders - because for all we know, you might have a pattern to your taste-testing. So she'd have to try this at least 3 times (for the absolute minimum sample size) with the goodies all in different orders. And even if it isn't really more scientific, you get more nommies, so everyone wins, right? Heehee!

  3. I am sure you can devise many such test trial and tastings and yes - it is about time you got the goodies to try

  4. Ah we agree with Fiona and Abbey, you need at least 7 more taste tests and perhaps your friends should participate?

  5. Well it is about TIME that you got to stretch your taste buds and give a testimonial.
    DARN that was a MAJOR Scientific Experiment you pawformed buddy.
    Of course we see that the evil witch only gave you TEEEEEEENY TIIIIINY smidgens of any of the samples. So typical. Butt you can now say...

    Those FROMM treats must be DELICIOUS since they are better than Yogurt.. THAT stuffs is FABULOUS. So you are telling us
    FROMM = FANGtastic

  6. Now wait just a minute. We order food - lots of it - from Mr Chewy and have not received a free sample. We want treats!

    P.S. - We love the convenience of Chewy!

  7. Um, Dexter.....we don't think ONE trial is very scientific, mate. You have to do many, many trials for a true hierarch-ial pattern to form. We think you'd better keep going. Now, if you can just get the human to agree.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  8. Dexter I am intrigued by the order you chose. I love how you saved yogurt for last to wash everything down. Perhaps Mama should have put some lettuce down just to test you a bit more. I can see from your reaction that they must be yummy, so I will check into those.

    Loveys Sasha

  9. We agree with the others. You need to sample the treats a few more times to really tell if you like them.

    Millie & Walter

  10. Good good good.....those things are tasty
    Benny & Lily

  11. We don't know, butt the liver treats seemed to be the clear winner. Just say'in...

    Bart, Ruby and Otto

  12. hahaha :D being a taster sounds good ^^
    we gonna ask moma if we can be one to!

    Hauwii & Princess Paulien

  13. What an awesome video! We think you should consider a career in movies! LOVE that face! Better than yogurt indeed! We love Chewy! Xo Chloe and LadyBug

  14. Hey Dexter!
    Wow, I'm glad you finally got to do a review! I can't believe it took so long, but it was definitely worth waiting for. Your video was pawesome and I was with you except for the carrot and berries. blech. Anyway, I bet those Fromm bites are yummy...I can see it in your eyes! BOL
    Grr and a Drooling Woof,
    Sarge, Snacker

  15. Yummers!! Hope that you got more than one. BTW, look at those chompers!!!

    Jazzi and Addi

  16. LOL - Blueberry would have left the carrot. ;)

    You are an excellent taste tester!! I especially like the way you cleaned that kibble plate off - I was a little concerned that you were going to leave that lone piece of kibble there but nope - you cleaned it up!

  17. Are you sure?!? Maybe your mom should set all of those plates of treats out again and let you have another go of it. Better yet, 2 out of 3. Or even BETTER yet, can I come over?!?

  18. Hmm...Dex seems to be a bit like Riley--will snarf down whatever's in front of him! I could see a "Scientific Taste Test" going just like that if I did one with Riley! She would go from one plate to the next, gobbling down everything!

    Well, at least you didn't turn your nose up to the Fromm treats! :)

    Elyse and Riley

  19. My order of preference would go: liver, liver, liver, liver, more liver please, yes that liver's very nice...
    Toodle pip!
    PS I was going to comment at length on your scientific methodology and offer to peer review any results you might be thinking of publishing, but Gail seems to want us to go out...

  20. I think that you need to do the experiment TWO or THREE times at least to make sure it's accurate!

  21. Oh, your just like me Dex! LIVER TREATIES RULE!! Oh, I do love the liver treaties! BOL
    I agree with everyone else, I don't thinks just ONE experiment is enough. You gots to have at the very least THREE for a good sample. Tell your Moms this...Oh, and tell her that her sample size is just toooooo small for a Labradude like yourself! Just sayin'....
    Ruby ♥

  22. That was so cool, Dexter! We would have done the exact same thing! Why can't our mom come up with neat games like this!
    We've had Fromm treats and they are so crunchy and yummy!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  23. Well, thank Dog your Momma finally decided to let you be an official taste tester! And I know you enjoyed her scientific experiments; in fact, I'm pretty sure you would like her to run them over and over again!

  24. Wow Dexter! I like this scientific method thing because it means you get ALL KINDS OF noms!!! Next time I try noms, I will insist on comparing them with all kinds of other noms, like you did. Brilliant!

    And your video made dad LOL!


  25. Howdy Dex, wowza looks like the experiment worked. You got to eat everything, your momma worked out some calculation thingys and everybuddy is happy. Well Mr Chewey probably wanted you to eat his stuffs first, butt, as you say, better than yogurt and we love yogurt. Hey, how come there wasn't any lettuce? No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  26. We agree, more taste tests are in order!


  27. Dextew. Yoo awe bwilliant. Keep encouwaging yoow Mama to be skye en tific, that way yoo get multipull yummies in each go. Fantastic!!! Yoow eyepopping wesponse says it all. Tose must be yummielishuss. Wish Mw. chewy woold cum to Boo da Pest

  29. You are a really great taste-tester, Dexter! You are a true lab through and through, which means that you love almost anything :) Loved the taste test - my Labs would've done the same thing - eat everything as fast as possible!

    Khyra and Khousin Harley

  32. Has to be done another 9 times Dex, we will write to your Momma so she makes this a true Dexter test. And what a sooperb job you did of washin the dishes. Can go straight back in the cupboard ready for the next testin. DEXTER DUBBLE DONE.

  33. Hey Dexter - Just popping in to say hello - great catching up on your news. So you've got an important new job, huh? Btw, I LOVE your new header photo! :-)

    Honey the Great Dane

  34. Interesting because I thought the carrots and blueberries would be eaten last. Dexter, I do very much admire and appreciate your honesty. Thank you for an excellent review.

  35. Pretty good, Dex! Love the way you work left to right, then right to left. NO PLATE left behind!


  36. Wow, that's a job to love! Looks to us like you liked everything, so you logically started in the middle and worked your way to your right and then to your left very methodically. We wish your demo tape would give mama ideas.

    Your bipedal nephew is very cute and he'll be more fun as he gets older and learns how to do things. Is he from the same family unit as your nephew Oliver? Does Oliver ever come swimming with you? You could have pool races and play water ball.
