Tried And Tested Treats!

Hey efurryone! So whee thought whee would do.something a little different today. Whee are going to review a pet product! Can I get a ‘woooooo’?!

Now I will start by saying whee know piggies from all over the world are reading this so you will have to order your hooman to search for similar products in your countries. If cavy treats do not appeal then never fear, just enjoy our pigtures and opinions!

Whee are reviewing treats known as Alfalfa Mini Bale Treats. At first sight they aren’t much. Solid blocks about the length of Mummy’s thumb. Mummy says the packaging tells us this is highly compressed 100% Alfalfa hay. Alfalfa is full of calcium which, when whee have to much of it, can lead to problems in us piggies. That is why our Mummy only lets us have one or two bales a wheek.

Look – 4/10 (It really isn’t much to look at, just a solid block of hay)
Packaging – 5/10 (Our packaging is a bright attention grabbing yellow but the window you can see the product through is very small)
Taste – 9/10 (Whee all love these so much it can cause arguements!)
Piggy Proof/Durability – 9/10 (These usually keep us entertained for a good few hours but none last longer than a day!)
Overall Score – 8/10

These always go down well. The only issue not yet mentioned would be how crumbly they are in some packs and how unbreakable in others. Mummy likes getting us these when whee are mad at her. Whee never stay mad long!

Do you have a favourite treat or know one whee could review?


Ps. Here are some pigtures of us product testing!

  1. Our piggies never liked them much, they were more into real (unpressed) food. Over the years we tried many. Have you tried Gerty’s Crunchers? They were a hit over here.

    • Mummy only let us have these because she was sure it was just hay! Usually whee have herbs and veggies but with Winter coming Mummy is seeking alternatives! Whee will see if she finds anything else next wheek!


      • We made our own little bales of hay in toilet paper tubes. We fill a whole box with them and then they are easy to just throw in the cage and it also recycles the tubes. This is especially great when someone was pig sitting because they never know how much hay to give and the cage became a mess. Veggies and herbs are still the best. We grew parsley but it was never enough for those little appetites,

  2. Cute pigtures, Nibbles! Motor Mommy has tried to get me to eat kitty treats, but she’s never found one that I like. I just want her grilled chicken!
    Purrs to you today,

  3. very nice pictures, food tester is a very important job – think this could be my favorite profession :o)

  4. I gotta say, I like Alfalfa myself too. Haha!

  5. your review looked DELICIOUS!! Too bad I’m not a piggy!! 🙂 Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  6. I’m glad you got some cool new treats!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  7. Those are cute little “bales of hay”……it’s fun to try new stuff although I’m rather particular about almost EVERYTHING…..the only treat I like is Temptations Cat Treats (tuna flavored ONLY). But then again there’s all those HUMAN treats I like….like bacon, butter, yogurt, popsicles so I guess I get my share of TREATS whether they’re meant for cats or not!

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  8. Great product review Nibbles 🙂 Love the product testing pics! Personally I like a juicy piece of chicken!

Squeak to us!!!
