I received some samples of this.  My cats don't like to eat it by itself the way the like to eat Stella and Chewy's, but they will eat it when mixed into other food.  The nuggets are little big when using as treats and don't crumble as well as S&C.  Good ingredients. Would be really expensive to use as meals though. 
Pros: raw turkey including ground bones, lots of organic ingredients, 100% human-grade
Cons: expensive, needs to be rehydrated
I wanted to start including some raw foods into my cats' diet, but they didn't seem to like any of the frozen formulas I have tried.  So I got some free samples of this from PetPeople one day, and all the cats DEVOURED them!  They liked all the flavors (Chicken & Salmon, Beef, Turkey) but seemed to eat the turkey with the most enthusiasm across the board, so I started getting the 14oz bags of the freeze-dried turkey nuggets.  You can rehydrate the nuggets and feed them as a meal, or you can use them as toppers on canned food (need to add a little extra water to the canned food if you do this).  These nuggets are a complete and balanced meal on their own.  My cats seem to love the taste, and they'll eat pretty much any wet food as long as I crumble a couple of these nuggets on top.  That's usually how I feed this food, because it is expensive!  A 14oz bag costs $28.99 at PetPeople.  I go through about one bag per week, so it would get very expensive to feed this exclusively in a multi-cat household.   But my cats love these so much, and since it is chock-full of top quality ingredients and it's an easy way to get them to eat raw, I don't mind spending the money since it is so healthy for them.

Here is the ingredient list:

Turkey, Turkey Necks, Turkey Hearts, Turkey Livers, Organic Collard Greens, Organic Squash, Organic Celery, Cranberries, Blueberries, Organic Pumpkin Seeds, Organic Sunflower Seeds, Montmorillonite Clay, Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, Sardine Oil, Taurine, Organic Quinoa Sprout Powder, Dried Organic Kelp, Organic Cilantro, Organic Coconut Oil, Cod Liver Oil, Organic Ginger, Vitamin E Supplement, Mixed Tocopherols (natural preservative).

There are several different plant ingredients, but they are all organic and they only make up 5% of the total food composition.  The sardine oil is in there to provide essential omega-3 fatty acids.

Primal Pet Foods signed the Truth About Pet Food transparency pledge - promising to always divulge the sourcing of their ingredients.  Their pet foods are 100% human-grade and USDA certified. It's a super healthy food for cats, and if my guys are any indication, it must taste pretty darn good!   The only real drawback is the cost - but, you get what you pay for, and the quality of the food justifies the price, in my opinion.
Pros: Convenient, Low Carb, Cats Like It
Our cats love Primal's freeze-dried foods: we feed them all three flavors, often mixed, but they generally eat more turkey than chicken or beef. They prefer Primal's freeze-dried food over frozen, which is convenient for us: it can be stored at room temperature and doesn't take up freezer space. Crumbling and rehydrating the blocks of food only takes a few minutes.  As long as we keep their mixes a little varied, the cats are happy to eat Primal every morning and evening.

Our cats have somewhat delicate stomachs but Primal seems to agree with them; the only problem we've had is that they occasionally eat it too fast and then vomit. Primal contains a fair number of vegetables but they're not starchy so the carb levels are low and there's no long list of chemical supplements. I also like that Primal has full pages with nutritional information for each of their foods.

Over all, Primal has worked out to be reasonably priced for us because the cats always finish their food.
