What are the best training treats?

I am thinking about training for my new puppy. I want to to get a good brand of treats that don't have a bunch of crap in them. Also ones that are small and good for training treats. What did you or do you use?

Are they expensive. I used to by the Zukes hip ones, but they are bigger, but really expensive for a bigger bag. Are they fattening and such?

Would they be to fatty or rich for puppies. I have heard to just use their kibble,but I would think training treats should be yummy

No, they're actually pretty cheap compared to other products and they go a long way. I think they're only like 2 calories each so train away without having to worry about feeding too much.

OH yay!!!! I will get the 3 brands and mix them so he gets a different flavor! I am so excited. That's another thing to add to my shopping list.
