Default NRG Maxim/Vital or Honest Kitchen

Has anyone used NRG Maxim or Vital? Right now the boys are having a mix of Purina Pro Plan (phasing out) and Fromm (four-star). I leave this out for them around the clock at this time. They are very small and I feel they need to be able to have food at the ready. I just started adding Evanger's canned foods for breakfast. They love it...they also love the Fromm. My thoughts were to then add Honest Kitchen for dinner. I read a couple reviews that people brought up NRG and that they preferred it over HK. Has anyone used or uses NRG? Thoughts? Has anyone tried both NRG and HK? Thoughts?

I normally feed commercial raw but on vacation I have fed Swizzle HK and it liked it. What reasons did they give for their preference?

They were slightly older posts and most gave no real reasons for preferring NRG over HK. One stated that they thought it looked better. I am not sure what NRG looks like but HK does take getting used to, with it's oatmeal like consistency. HK is definitely much easier to order then NRG. I have read more about HK but like what I have read about both. They both look to be really good quality.

HK looks horrible and smells worse but Swizzle loves it. The ingredients are good so perhaps the human reaction to the nasty looking smelly stuff is the problem. As long as it is good for him and he likes it that is what I go by.
