    Dude, I would SO much rather have the second one, and I’m not sure which one you gave your dog, lol! 😛
    I find it terrifying how there are so many ingredients in seemingly simple, benign things…like bread, for example! :-O It’s crazy…all Enumbers and preservatives and words I can’t pronounce.
    Your fruit bar looks delcious 🙂 xyx

      It’s so frightening how “food” is not food any more. NO wonder we have all these problems with allergies and food intolerances these days, food should not be created in a lab 🙂
