ReTail Scene: New YaffBar is for You and Your Dog

YaffBarCarolina Mountain Dog recently learned about a unique new product -- an energy bar designed for you to share with your dog. "YaffBar" is produced by a Vermont company called Mudd + Wyeth (named after two dogs). And in case you're wondering, "yaff" is an old English word meaning "to bark," according to the company.

Says Mudd + Wyeth, "Now you can snack and stay on the go with the world's first 'people food' bar designed to be shared with your best friend! This is pure puppy love in a bar: wholesome, hand-baked, and seriously delicious. And it's full of healthy ingredients for both of you." 

YaffBar comes in three flavors, Blueberry Carob, Banana Peanut Butter, and Honey Almond Cranberry. Mudd + Wyeth includes an endorsement from a veterinarian on its website. YaffBars are not yet available in North Carolina, but they can be ordered online from the company. A sampler pack of 6 bars, 2 of each flavor, is available for $18. The company also sells some pretty cool-looking reflective gear (an absolute necessity during hunting season in the mountains) and dog toys.

In a Carolina Mountain Dog taste test, my two dogs went bananas over the YaffBars; in fact, they were particularly fond of the Banana Peanut Butter YaffBar. I thought they were tasty, moist and chewy, but the bars were just a bit too dense and fat-laden for my liking. Still, YaffBars could certainly compete with much better-known energy bars, and they were a big hit with my dogs -- and it is nice to know there's a product that's truly safe to share with your dog.
