Hey! Do you remember Gaines-Burgers? Man, those patties were the bomb! Some people used to fry those bad boys purely for their pups enjoyment! LOL!
Anyway, I got to thinking that Sophia would like one of those as 1970s throwback. Not for nothing, nostalgia counts for something these days. In fact, Gaines-Burgers go real real good with vinyl records, 8 track tapes, bell bottoms, platform shoes, and ponchos too, friends.
Well, sliding into my espadrilles, I am on a new journey to locate a package for my best friend. After visiting three major pet supply houses …, nada, nothing, and zilch. Okay. This calls for ingenuity. That is, corner stores and qwik marts. Surely they will have Gaines-Burgers. Ahem….No luck. I did find CBD lip balms and CBD bath bombs though! But, I still had no Gaines-Burgers.
Then it dawned on me to do my research here. Oh, oh no! Gaines-Burgers has made it to Wikipedia y’all! According to Wikipedia:
Gaines-Burgers was a brand of dog food. It was introduced in 1961 by General Foods, and production ceased in the 1990s. The product consisted of individually wrapped patties of moisturized dog food that resembled a hamburger. Unlike hamburgers, the Gaines-Burgers could be stored at room temperature for long periods of time. The technique was later used for human foods.
Hunted for the closest thing. Kibbles and Bits did not let me down. Every now and again there is something in there like 1 piece of Gaines Burgers. It went over big too. She’s picky but these did the trick.

This is factual stuff, right from the packaging. I am not making this up. It’ll be printed on your bag too, should you choose to purchase. And by the way, 96% say 5 stars. So 4.7 out of 5 stars Satisfaction Star Rating.???? This is definitely From Our Table Material.
I really want Sophia to experience Gaines-Burgers. To me, it’s the same as being a kid without knowing McDonalds. What’s up with that? Not satisfied with this, I forged ahead and found….
This is the closest to Gaines-Burgers that I could find. Except, this is not formed into a patty. Which may or may not be important, because… you see, folks were breaking those in half, crumbling them, and pinching them into different shapes. Meatballs and SlimJims shapes ???????? were my PERSONAL FAVORITES.
