It's different, apparently the same company but that food was
considered a treat (by the packaging if nothing else) whereas this is
clearly meant to compete with FF.
It showed up at Target a bit cheaper than FF ($.55 instead of $.59).
But, there were boxes of four cans each which were something like
$1.59 although there were only four varieties in the boxes, Tuna,
Chicken, Turkey, and Salmon. There were more varieties as single cans.
So I bought a bunch of the boxes and a few individual other flavors.
Mr. Picky (Scooter) won't eat the chicken but is ok with the others,
and actually seems to like the salmon. Marlo and Nipsy will eat any of
them if they are actually hungry. Salmon is Pate, and I think the
Turkey is too. The Chicken and Tuna are, I think, gravy.
I was at Target the other day and the boxes were already on clearance
at $.136 each! So I bought most of the stock, except for the chicken
in deference to Scooter. I think I ended up with about 15 boxes each
(60 cans) of the Turkey, Tuna, and Salmon. Naturally the cats will no
longer eat them.
