Here’s a look at what was in the October Super Chewer BarkBox along with the retail values of each item if purchased separately at the BarkShop:

October Super Chewer BarkBox Dog Toys

This month we actually received 3 dog toys in our box instead of the usual 2. I’m not sure if is because of a recent free extra toy BarkBox promotion or because of the theme, but either way it’s a nice surprise!

  • Sonny the Rolly Ghost Ball Dog Toy ($12 retail value) All-natural rubber, it’s a ball inside a ball! It rolls and bounces and has a hole so that it will also dispense kibble or treats if you load it up.
  • Spooky Spinning Top Dog Toy ($14 retail value) This one is also made of natural rubber and it spins! Also bounces in all kinds of crazy directions thanks to its shape. A super fun toy designed especially for large dogs.
  • Squeak-A-Boo Sue Dog Toy ($12 retail value) This toy is made of durable foam with a squeaky body and a wacky bounce.

October Super Chewer BarkBox Dog Treats
  • The Snackening Apple and Bacon Dog Treats ($8 retail value) Yummy soft biscuits made with real bacon and other wholesome ingredients dogs love!
  • The Snackening Pork Dog Treats ($8 retail value) These are a little crisper and chewier than the apple bacon treats, and they’re made with pork liver as the first ingredient.
  • Happy Howies Beef Burger Dog Chew  ($5 retail value) Nothing better than the taste of real slow-cooked ground beef, and that’s what’s in this dog treat!
  • Pork and Sweet Potato Chew Stick ($4 retail value) Grain-free and all-natural. This chew stick is not to tough and not too soft…just right for snacking.

If you look at the photo of the treats, you’ll also notice that there is an extra item in the box this month. It’s a special Ghost Squirrel Finder that you can use to decode some hidden messages on the BarkBox paper.

Another fun extra bonus item this month is a sheet of  “candy bars” that you can tear off and give to your fur pals when they come trick or treating. Each one has a BarkBox coupon code on it, but we have an even better offer at the end this month’s Super Chewer review, so keep reading!

BarkBox Super Chewer Cost and Value

By our calculation, this month’s BarkBox Super Chewer edition had $63 worth of dog toys, treats and chews if you were to purchase them all separately. That’s makes a subscription a real bargain when you consider that plans starts as low as $29/month with free US and Canadian shipping included.

BarkBox Review + Coupon Street Fair Edition

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Daisy and I are back with a new BarkBox dog subscription box review! Each month’s theme is different, and this month the BarkBox theme is Bark Slope Street Fair. It’s a play on Park Slope, a fabulous Brooklyn neighborhood known for its parks, farmers’ markets and of course, street fairs. So, have a seat and get ready for some squeaks and treats!

As with each month’s dog subscription box from BarkBox, this one included 2 fun toys inspired by the theme, plus 2 full-size bags of dog treats and a tasty meat chew. You can expect a value of $40-$50 worth of dog toys and treats in each month’s BarkBox, for as low as $21/month including free shipping for US and Canada. Read on to see what we thought of this month’s BarkBox.

Daisy gets the large dog box which is shown in our BarkBox reviews, but whatever size your dog is, they will get the same number of toys and treats in appropriate sizes. Treats are also customized based on whether you specify food allergies in your dog’s BarkBox profile.

We hope you’ll stay for our BarkBox review but if you are just here for the BarkBox coupon, code WOOFWOOFMAMA will get you a FREE extra month added to any order of 1-month or more at

Note that this is the Classic BarkBox edition which usually includes plush toys. If your dog is a real toy destroyer then check out the BarkBox Super Chewer edition instead.

BarkBox subscription prices start at $21/month and shipping is free for US and Canada. Most toys are Bark exclusives and all treats are made in the US or Canada (we’ve seen some lamb treats from New Zealand and we’re ok with that!)

Here’s a look at what was in the September 2018 Classic BarkBox along with the retail values of each item if purchased separately at the BarkShop:

September BarkBox Dog Toys

Spiky Meatball Dog Toy ($8 retail value) What’s a street fair without some street meat?!? This cute and fuzzy meatball is wrapped in spaghetti with a hidden spiky ball toy inside. Daisy loves to rip open this type of toy and get to the center, but I think he’s so cute that I keep taking him away to save for later.

Lickton Iced Tea Dog Toy ($12 retail value) This is one of our favorite toys from recent boxes…super cute! Here in South Florida we drink iced tea year round and Daisy has been carrying her tea with her everywhere! Made with durable ballistic nylon, this dog toy is as long-lasting as it is fun.

September BarkBox Dog Treats

Lamb Gyro Dog Treats ($8 retail value) These soft and chewy treats are a BarkBox take on one of MY street fair favorites. Gyros! All natural and made in the USA.

Duck Shish Kabob Dog Treats ($8 retail value) The more street meat, the better! These duck dog treats add some nice variety and a gourmet flair to this month’s box.

Plato Pet Treats Salmon Dog Chew Stick  ($4 retail value) There is a full-size meat chew in every month’s BarkBox, and Plato makes some of our favorites. The salmon is chewy and fishy, which Daisy loves! It’s kind of the texture of a Slim Jim but with all-natural ingredients. I often break these into smaller pieces to make them last longer.


The info card that comes with each BarkBox always has some great information about the theme, contents, and often some extra fun games and surprises.

We were really happy with this month’s BarkBox goodies, but know that if you every receive a toy or treat that doesn’t make you happy or that isn’t suitable for your dog, BarkBox will send you a FREE replacement with no questions asked. You don’t even have to send back the unwanted item. They encourage you to donate or share it, and will send you a replacement more to your dog’s liking! It’s part of their Scout’s Honor Satisfaction Guarantee that comes with every delivery.

BarkBox Cost and Value

By our calculation, this month’s BarkBox had $40 worth of dog toys and  treats if you were to purchase them all separately.

That’s a great value when you consider that subscription prices start at $21/month with free US and Canadian shipping.

In addition to saving money, we also love the WOW-factor and excitement of getting a new delivery of surprises each month. It’s a chance to discover new dog treats and toys that we might not have known about otherwise. And the BarkBox toys are really Instagram-worthy, making them the perfect photo props in addition to some amazing dog toys.
