haha! I just received that e-mail from them. Aspen was on BB before EVO...I don't know how many of your are on BB or really follow them but they just came out with a bunch of new products.
The Blue Buffalo Company - Great New Products from BLUE™
This is the EXACT reason I am not a far of Merrick BG kibbles. Each formula is Deboned [whatever the formula is] followed by chicken meal.They would be more accurately named "chicken with a little buffalo formula" lolAlso their Wilderness is NOW grain free, which is great!!! And they now have duck and salmon varieties. However the only source of duck and salmon comes from deboned duck and deboned salmon. The next ingredient on the duck is chicken meal, and the next on the salmon is menhaden fish meal then chicken meal. I would've liked to have seen more duck and more salmon in it than other meats, but that's just my thoughts. :biggrin:
Wow...those are really bad. I didn't notice that much...This whats in their new basic. Once again it's not what I would feed my dog. I feel the first 3 ingredients are peas, potato and rice.

What I am saying is the Deboned turkey falls to about the 4th ingredient. Which leaves the others Peas, potatos and rice as the main ingredients. I just happen to like to feed my dogs main ingredient meat, like the followingWow...those are really bad. I didn't notice that much...
