Belle and Monica try copi dog snacks
👋 Hey, Monica here. I recently wrote about the campaign to replace the name Asian carp with "copi," an effort to get more people to eat the invasive species ravaging Midwest waterways.
The intrigue: I also learned that dogs can do their part by eating copi-based jerky made by a company called Chippin ($21.99 for a two-pack).
The verdict: These copi-, sweet potato-, molasses- and cranberry-based jerky bits are deliciously smoky, chewy and slightly sweet. I know because I ate one for thorough reporting — and because they use human-grade fish.
- More importantly, my picky pooch Belle adores them, even without knowing they are packed with omega-3s and help protect local waterways.
Of note: Chippin also makes spirulina and cricket dog treats!
