Except for the parsley flakes, this reads like dog kibble. Our dogs don't care that much for condiments!

Is there a prize involved?

The wonderful prize is the recognition by one and all that the person with the correct answer is a stoot.

Nicest thing I've been called all week!

Was it Michael Pollan who said: "Never eat any prepared food-like substance with more than four ingredients, or any that you can't pronounce"?

Good advice from Michael Pollan. Also good advice for your pets because this list of ingredients is on the label of Friskies Indoor Adventures cat treats. This is really close to dog Kibble, so this makes you an A minus astute person!!
