My cats have always loved Temptations cat treats! Now Temptations has come out with a brand new product – Temptations Tumblers – that takes play time to a whole new level. Cinco and Manna are telling me it’s #TimeToPlayBall with Temptations Tumblers!

The Company Behind Temptations Tumblers

Manna seems to know that this bag is for her.

The Temptations brand of cat treats is owned by Mars, Inc. That’s right- the same company that makes many of the chocolaty treats that humans love (like M&Ms, Milky Way, and Snickers)! Mars has been invested in pet care products since 1935 when it started selling Chappie Dog Food in the UK (now called Pedigree). Since then Mars has been at the helm of many popular pet care products and services. Just to name a few: Pedigree, Whiskas, Royal Cannin, Nutro, Sheba, Greenies, Banfield Pet Hospital (acquired in 2007), and the Waltham Centre for Pet nutrition (a leading research facility in pet nutrition and wellness since 1965).

Temptations cat treats have been very popular with cats and owners since they arrived on the market. Over 25 different flavor varieties exists, with some of them aiming to help different feline health needs. Truly a winning line of cat treats, Temptations MixUps became the recipient of the award for Product of Year in the 2011 Consumer Survey of Product Innovation. Here’s where you can find Tempations online:

#TimeToPlayBall: Temptations Tumblers Cat Treats

Temptations Tumblers Giveaway - Treat Size and Shape with Penny

The actual size and shape of Temptations Tumblers.

Temptations Tumblers are the newest products from the Temptations brand. They debuted about a month ago in September 2014! These treats have the same patented hard shell and soft middle as other Temptations treats, but with a brand new shape. Temptations Tumblers are made to be easy to toss and roll so treat time can also be play time. According to Amy Keith, a Temptations brand manager, “We created Temptations Tumblers to help owners easily engage with their cats, because life can be so much more fun when playtime is a part of your daily routine.

Temptations Tumblers are available in 2 great flavors that will get your cats saying #TimeToPlayBall : Tasty Chicken & Turkey and Savory Salmon & Tuna. They come in a 2.47 oz pouch, a 5.29 oz pouch, and a 14 oz plastic tub. Go to to find out where you can purchase them in your area.

The new Temptations Tumblers #TimeToPlayBall commercial is great! Rather than showing in stereotypical light (lazy, aloof), it celebrates the interaction of cat owners and their cats. As a cat owner, you can initiate playtime with your cat using Temptations Tumblers and release your kitty’s inner athlete.


My Experience

Temptations Tumblers Giveaway - Cinco and Manna break into the treats

Manna couldn’t wait to have one .

I purchased the 5.29 oz pouch of Tasty Chicken & Turkey flavored Temptations Tumblers for Cinco and Manna to try. My husband loved the idea of being able to play ball with the kitties. I think he was nearly as excited about these treats as the cats were.

This bag really is a very good portion of treats. The treats are not spherical like they are shown on the package, but more of a small cylindrical shape. They really do toss and roll very well. I found that the package reseals very easily too.

The moment my husband opened the bag of Temptations Tumblers Cinco and Manna came running. They have always been fans of Temptations. Manna, as food motivated as she is, has never really liked any other brand of cat treats. Cinco and Manna were very willing to run and play to get these treats. I had a very difficult time getting the photo of the treat next to the penny because the treat kept “disappearing” as soon as I set it down. I’m surprised there isn’t a paw in the photo on this post! Cinco and Manna absolutely love Temptations Tumblers.

My only caution is to remind people that these are a treat and not meant to be a sole source of nutrition. Your cat will want to devour the whole bag the moment you open them! Just remember, according to the Temptations website, these treats are about 2 calories per piece. They are also very high in carbohydrates (as any dry food or treat is). The recommendation on the bag is to feed no more than 20 pieces per day per 10 pounds of weight.
