Prime slices looks the best of all.. It’s the only one that’s not like ground pate but the ingredients were clearly not as good as the others..
definetly best smell was Wysong                  
Best flavor was  chicken soup followed closely by old mother hubbard all the others tasted bland or gross      
all were about 13-14 oz ecxept the alpo that was 22 oz.  But alpo was 82% moisture vs 78 for the others      
as for the best points per penny cost…. Alpo won.. It cost less and looked best but tasted gross…   and had bad ingredients  
Old mother hubbard was the next best…  And it tasted 2nd best overall…              
it was the cheapest besides for alpo, which is indicated by its points per penny value.          
If I were to live off of this stuff… Id go with the chicken soup.. It actuially tasted good…   and was the 3rd best points per penny value…

4 Chicken soup $1.29                  
5 Old Mother Hubbard $0.95                  
6 Alpo   $0.85   *              
* The alpo was purchased at walmart so may be a bit more if purchased at a pet store        
all others were purchased at a pet store                
This was all done unscientifically, and the results may be scewed as some brands        
were beef and others chicken and others lamb.. So the taste being subjective may        
have varied by my preference.. Overall.. Most were really gross except Chicken soup and old mother hubbard
