Press release: Cadet

Cadet, an esteemed dog chew & treat brand of 35 years, the No. 1 retail brand of bully sticks, and part of the Central Garden & Pet portfolio, is introducing a trio of naturally delicious additions to its product assortment: Chewalicious No Rawhide Chews, Chef’s Specialties Beef Hide Shish Kabobs; and Homestyle Jerky Turducken Recipe.

“As pet parents ourselves, we know firsthand just how rewarding it is to see our dogs excited for high-quality chews they love and we feel good giving,” said Glen S. Axelrod, president and CEO of Cadet. “That’s why we at Cadet can’t wait for furry friends to experience our newest chews that not only deliver exciting combinations of flavors and textures, but the premium ingredients that define our brand.”

The new Cadet products include:

Cadet Chewalicious No Rawhide Chews  The first long-lasting chews launched under the new Chewalicious product line, Chewy ‘N Crunchy Braids and Chewy ‘N Crunchy Spirals combine two enticing textures in each flavor-packed natural chew. The easy-to-digest rawhide alternatives are crafted with real chicken and don’t contain any artificial flavors or preservatives. Made with patent-pending technology, the unique braids and spirals include enticing grooves that also help clean teeth as dogs chew.

Cadet Chef’s Specialties Beef Hide Shish Kabobs – Expanding the Cadet brand’s assortment of Beef Hide Shish Kabobs, these premium hides are inspired by iconic food combinations humans love and dogs always wished they could try. The culinary-like flavors include Steakhouse Cheeseburger, Apple Peanut Butter Delight, and Grilled Surf & Turf — all crafted with real ingredients such as beef, salmon, cheese, apple, and peanut butter. Each irresistible flavor duo is wrapped around premium beef hide, making them a long-lasting reward with naturally occurring collagen. All Chef’s Specialties™ kabobs are sized large for dogs over 30 pounds.

Cadet Homestyle Jerky Turducken Recipe – Dogs can now indulge in the classic flavor medley of turducken with the latest variety in the Cadet premium treat collection.
