Why does every body dislike Blue?

I have never used blue but i currently feed raw and when I go camping I need to feed kibble and blue seems purist. Everyone says its too rich, what do they mean by that, rich as in more pure meat wise such as the richness of feeding raw in the first place

I like Blue Buffalo - I use the Wilderness Grain Free, either chicken or salmon. Max has done quite well on it.

Why not? (That's really all I had to ask but it won't let me post unless I say more.)

Bear's been eating Blue as soon as we ran out of food from the rescue. He's excelled on it, IMHO. I love his coat. Though he does tend to get red eyes. But I'm still trying to figure out if it's the food or dust or the cats.

Also, a lot of members describe their pups having diarrhea or soft/loose stools on Blue. I believe by "too rich" they are referring to the same way you might say a particular chocolate mousse is too rich, and you can only take a few bites without getting a bad tummy ache. I'm not sure how else to explain it. Lol. Perhaps its too many "heavy" ingredients.
