Very likely it's "Uncle Jim's Duck Soup Mix" put out by Marshalls... It's
a powder that is mixed with water to make a soup, or people will sometimes
sprinkle it onto kibble. Someone gave me some and my guys wouldn't touch
it, but they're hard core Bob C's chicken gravy addicts. A friend of mine
has one that loves the Uncle Jim's but won't touch chicken gravy. Bah!
Weasels and their tastebuds. Anyway, I took the following ingredients
list off of

Marshall Uncle Jim's Duck Soup Ingredients

norwegian kelp, flaxseed, micro pulverized bee pollen, garlic concentrate,

Anyone know if there's anything else it could have been?
