We have several of the older black goodie bones and the old ones are great, these new ones smell horrible (STRONG rubber smell that does not go away - I have one that is over a year old and still stinks to the point that I won't give it to the dogs) and the little rubber "fingers" inside the bone hole are smaller and don't hold stuff as well as the old ones. Too bad because they were nice Kongs that our dogs use every day for their lunchtime treat and our old ones are slowly wearing out (probably 10+ years old now).

MY PUPPY CHEWS EVERYTHING. NOTHING IS SAFE WITH HIM AROUND. AS OF 2 WEEKS, HE HAS NOT YET MADE A DENT IN THIS BONE.
Love Kongs! by ChelseaGirl from Chelsea, AL02/24/2012
Kongs are super durable & my dogs love this bone. You can't fit too much in the ends but I just put some peanut butter in the ends & freeze overnight & my pups love it. These bones & Kongs in general are super durable. Well worth the $$, they will last a long time even for extreme chewers.
