Tasty Treat Tuesday (Burgess Excel Square Snack Review)

Firstly whee were not sent these or given anything for this review. Mummy just picked up some treats she thought whee might like and they went down so well she said whee can post about them!

The Treat – Burgess Excel Carrot and Banana Square Snacks

The Treats . .

The Treats . .

The Packaging – A brown and yellow box with clear front panel to show the treats. Looks interesting and caught the hoomans eye.

The Boring Hoomans Bit – Made up of hay, carrots, beetroot and banana. Nothing to worry about unlike many treats which are marketed at guinea pigs.

How Much? – These cost Mummy Β£2.50 in a local pet shop though whee suspect prices vary in different places.

The Look – A small unsurprisingly square snack. Not sure if it had anything to do with the little hooman dropping the packet on the way home but quite crumbly and very few whole pieces. Looks like hay and dried herbs compressed together.

The Smell – No real smell. A vague smell of hay but nothing to overpowering or awful.

The Taste Test – After a suspicious sniff whee all tried one. Whee all really enjoyed them and wanted more!

Final Verdict – These are great little treats for us piggies. However, they are quite delicate. When whee munched them they broke into little pieces and when whee came to the bars to beg for more, Mummy noticed a small pile of bits and crumbs from it. So they were pretty messy.

Whee give thisΒ 4/5. If the treats held together better and were less messy whee would say these were perfect!

What’s your favourite treat?

Happy Tuesday

  2. We don’t really get many treats, because so far our mummy has not found any we can actually eat. We’ll have to look out for those! We just get tasty veg instead.

  3. It could be a double treat – if your mom takes that plastic off the package, you could chew up the box too!

  4. Oooh send some my way, please! I think I’ll like anything you piggies like!

  5. Do you have some crumbs for me? It sounds good, I would try it too. Have a tasty tuesday!

  6. I don’t do too many food reviews. I’ve never met a meal I didn’t like.

  7. We like catnip and the chewy treats Mom gives us at night. Humans are so neat when they are giving us fur people treats!!! You are all very lucky.
