Unboxing the Forthglade Christmas collection 2022

Christmas is less than six weeks away, and if you want your dog to have the most perfect day, you’d better act fast, as the Forthglade Christmas collection is selling out quicker than you can say ‘kibble’. This year, the natural dog food brand has brought back their popular festive treats, with a Christmas dinner recipe and festive variety box that can even act as an advent calendar for your pooch.

The Devon-based company’s tasty limited edition recipes are a great way to treat your dog over the festive period, whether it’s a delicious dinner of turkey, cranberry and parsnip, or treats for being Santa’s little helper while wrapping the presents.

Each product is made with natural ingredients and gently steamed to retain maximum goodness, meaning they’re certain to get a tail wag of approval from your four-legged friend this Christmas. Here’s what Forthglade has to offer this holiday season.

First up is the limited edition christmas dinner turkey with cranberry and parsnip. This natural wet dog food recipe weighs in at 395g, and is available in packs of seven, 14 or 21, costing from £12.53 to £35.07. This works out at just £1.67 per tray, which can last Phoebe and Frank up to three days when used as a kibble topper, making it great value for money.

Packed full of meaty goodness, this recipe sees a whopping 75 per cent turkey, combined with suitably seasonal cranberry and parsnip for a delicious grain free festive dinner that can be enjoyed on December 25 while you’re sitting down for a festive feast yourself. 

Forthglade said: “As always with Forthglade, our recipes are completely free from junk, fillers and artificial flavours, colours and preservatives. Ensuring your dog only gets what he or she needs for a healthy and balanced diet. Perfect for even the most sensitive of tummies without compromising on flavour, our recipes are tail-waggingly good.”

Phoebe and Frank love having Forthglade wet food as a topper on their tea, as we’ve been using it for years. I love how well they store in the fridge, and how long they last once opened, as it’s still fresh two and three days later. 

Dogs can enjoy these recipes as a standalone meal, or with dry dog food for some added crunch, but just make sure to adjust ratios accordingly to avoid overfeeding.This particular recipe is suitable for dogs over 12 months old, and can be found on the Forthglade website here.

For those looking for a little more variety this Christmas, there’s the 12 meals of Christmas turkey, spring lamb and beef natural wet dog food variety pack, which offers four of each flavour in a handy to store tray.

Each one is 395g, with 12 trays costing £19.49, while 24 come in at £37.68 and 48 priced at £73.44. I love the idea of using these as an ‘advent calendar’ in the run up to Christmas, having a different dinner each day throughout December. 

The turkey option is of course the special limited edition festive recipe, which has been paired with lamb, spring veg and mint, as well as beef with pumpkin and broccoli – all of which contain 75 per cent meat, prime for a balanced and fulfilling diet.

Suitable for dogs over the age of one year, this high quality food is produced right here in the UK in a purpose built factory in Dartmoor, Devon, packed full of natural ingredients and added vitamins and minerals to make sure your dog gets the nutrition they need.

This variety pack has already proven so popular, it’s completely sold out online – but you can sign up to Forthglade’s mailing list to be notified as soon as it’s back.

Finally there’s the limited edition natural soft bite treats with turkey and cranberry, back after a successful sell-out run in 2021. 

The Christmas turkey and cranberry soft bite treats are made in their adorable signature heart design, gently baked with a seam down the middle so you can easily break them in half. This makes them perfect for sharing if you’re a multi dog household, or so that they go further – or if someone has gained some holiday weight for better portion control (we’ve all been there).

These high protein treats are made with 30 per cent turkey meal, 24 per cent sweet potato among pea flour, vegetable glycerine, cold pressed rapeseed oil, dried cranberry and dried parsley, costing £1.85 for a packet or £12.95 for eight. They’re suitable for puppies over eight weeks, meaning even if it’s their very first Christmas, they’ll be able to enjoy the taste of Forthglade this December.

These treats are so good, Frank managed to snuffle a handful without me noticing while I was taking these photos, proving that they are completely irresistible. We’ll definitely be giving out packs to all our canine friends this festive season.
