We hope you will follow along with us from sea to shining sea. We are giving fans some goodies along the way and we will be giving goodies out here on the blog! Follow us on Facebook for all the scoop, too:

Fidose of Reality is celebrating by giving things away to you: Our loyal readers!

This go round it’s all about healthy treats for dogs from Sam’s Yams. Take a peek at our product review of the nom noms and then read on for how you can enter your dog in the running for a gift box full of Sam’s Yams nom noms (aka: treats)


What is a Sam’s Yam?

I read the labels of dog food and dog treats with the scrutiny of an Encyclopedia Brown book. So here’s the scoop on what’s in Sam’s Yams. There is no wheat gluten in any of the Sam’s Yams products: Hurrah!

Sizes and Varieties

Sam’s Yams offers three different packages and a variety of sizes in their dog treats. From Veggie “Rawhide” (even though they are not traditional rawhide at all) to Big Boyz Sweet Potato Dog Chewz to Bichon Fries for smaller dogs, the variety is there.

Pricing is comparable and the chews take the dogs a bit longer to break up and munch upon, so you get your dollar’s worth.

You can read all about our take on Sam’s Yam’s and our taste testers in action here.


Open to residents in the United States and Canada.



We want to see your dog munching on a treat: That’s it. One photo per person allowed. You must own the photo, no photoshopping allowed. All photos will be posted on the official Fidose of Reality Sam’s Yams photo contest album on our Facebook wall. We have the right to share your photo for promotional purposes.

Simply mail your one photo to fidoseofreality(at)gmail(dot)com and put Sams Yams Photo in the subject line. That’s it. We will send you a response when the photo is posted.


When does it start and end? The contest starts now. The contest ends on 05/31/14 at 11:59 p.m. EST. Fidose of Reality staff and their families are not eligible to win.

What are we judged on? One random winner will be selected.

Can my friends and family play? Sure! The more the merrier. We love to see tails wagging here at Fidose of Reality, so spread the word and make your voice heard. One entry per person, please.

What if I win? Winners will be notified and announced on the Fidose of Reality blog in this thread no later than June 2, 2014.

    Shiner loves Sam’s Yams! We’ll pass on entering this fabulous giveaway as she has a lot of their treats already.

  2. Caren Gittleman says

    We also will pass because we were one of the first (yep, we were!) to review them a few months ago, but we wanted to say HOW FANTASTIC they are. Dakota LOVES THEM! Good luck to all who enter, it is a great prize!!

  3. Catherine Armato says

    My dogs Isis and Phoebe LIVE for all things Yam so we’ll definitely be entering the contest. Sometimes we order sweet potato fries instead of regular fries just so we can bring some home for the dogs. These are clearly healthier than restaurant fries. Thanks!
