What Do Customers Think Of Scrumptious From Scratch Cat Food?
Scrumptious from Scratch is a relatively new brand but it is sold on Chewy.com. We found a few reviews for it there.
“This looks and smells human good. They lick the gravy up, as usual, but also eat the pieces of chicken & turkey.” – CrazyCatLady
“Our cats are finicky. We’ve tried a few brands and flavors over the years and this is one they have no problem eating and it doesn’t make them sick.” – Loyda
“My cats seemed to like this food the first time I purchased it, but not this time.” – KimS

How Much Does Scrumptious From Scratch Cat Food Cost?
It appears that the tuna recipes cost slightly less than the chicken recipes, at least where we looked. We found cases of the chicken recipes for $17.88 on Chewy.com (slightly less on autoship). Cases of the tuna recipes were $11.88. These are all cases of 12 cans/2.8 ounces each.
The cost breaks down to $1.49 per 2.8 ounce can for the chicken varieties; and $0.99 per can for the tuna varieties. (Prices subject to change.)
Scrumptious from Scratch only has about 26-27 calories per ounce, which is a little less than some other popular cat foods, so you might have to feed your cat a little extra. You should figure this into your budget.
Overall, Is Scrumptious From Scratch A Good Choice?
Yes, we think that Scrumptious from Scratch is a good cat food. It appears to contain good quality meat without artificial flavors, preservatives, or colors. It is grain-free and gluten-free. Meat is the first ingredient and it does not contain animal by-products. And, it does not use carrageenan.
If mechanically deboned meat is an issue for you, Scrumptious from Scratch does not use meat from this process.
The brand offers tuna and chicken in several varieties, as well as pumpkin and a few seafood options. The number of recipes may grow in the future since the brand is new.
There is some range in the price. The high end of the price might make it a little pricey for some people, especially considering the 2.8 ounce cans and low calories. Other cat lovers will appreciate the less expensive recipes.
