I have never used them but look interesting.

is she getting to much formula. maybe start w one less bottle and replace w food. some babies don't like baby food . try just grinding regular food u eat in a blender. my son won't eat baby food. but eats what we eat. within reason of course. no spicy foods . lol

Yeah, as stated above it could be that your daughter is already full from having too much formula, so she doesn't feel the need to eat.  At 8 mos. you should definitely try feeding her solids first, and then formula.  Try that!

ETA that it could just be the types of food you're giving her as well.  Maybe she just doesn't like them?  Play around and make your own baby food.  I know my DD LOVES mashed blueberries :)

formula or breast milk is all she needs for the first year. if she isn't interested, then back off and try again in a few weeks. my youngest dd didn't start solids till she was just over a year old, she went from rice cereal to table food within a month.

If that's the case then you might want to try feeding her a bit sooner with less time in between feedings.  If she's very, very hungry, she's going to go for the food that she's used to and is much easier to eat.  Nothing beats drinkin your dinner :)
