We brought our dogs a small red kong toy years ago. I liked the idea that you could put treats or a special spread inside it. However our dogs weren't that interested in their Kong and preferred their cuddly squeaky toys. The Kong ended up unused and ignored.
However I do know of some people whose dogs love playing with their Kong, so it depends on the dog in question.

Well, the Kong treats are stuffed inside the beehive and only a little portion of it is exposed. And although Kong recommends their specially made treats to be stuffed inside of it, you can still use other treats. The Everlasting Treat Ball in the link needs refills, but according to the reviews they're durable (and that's always a good sign).
I've seen a dachshund ruin her "beehive" because she got too excited of chewing it.
You can put treats in a Kong. Some people mash them and freeze them in the Kong. Then the dog can occupy themselves trying to lick it out. It seems quite messy to me.
My dog's favorite Kong is the Goodie Ship. Though, hers is a bit thicker than the ones I've seen online. I can stick a soft treat in it and she will work for several minutes trying to lick it out. I call it a puppy pacifier.
