Treat Me Right!

Whee have some super exciting news. It has been a long time coming (mainly thanks to our silly hoomans damaging the camera that had all our pigtures on and having to fix it so whee could post this!) Whee noticed that a furfriend of ours, Dalton has a pack of furry friends which help him reviewing treats and foods from Wagg Pet Foods.

Of course being piggies whee couldn’t pass up a chance for free noms so whee asked if whee could join. Being a good doggy he said yes and posted us out some treats. Looking at others on his pack page whee were super nervous to see whee are the first guinea pig reviewers!

The treats whee were sent were, Wagg Small Animal Carrot Sticks

As whee haven’t really reviewed things before whee had a good think about what whee look for in a treat

Packaging : The packaging is very nice. A bright green and orange, very eye-catching and our two favourite colours!

Flavour : They are very crunchy and just the right size. Mummy has had issues with treats being too big before and getting stuck in our mouths, or being too small and getting stuck between our teeth. These are just the right size for us to sit down and spend a good five minutes nomming on!

More-ish-ness : As soon as whee finished our first taster whee wanted more! Buddy was even cheeky enough to hide his unfinished one under his paw and beg for another one! Mummy says they are treat though and whee can only have one or two for a special treat a couple of times a week.

The-Sciencey-Bit : Mummy was a little concerned at first reading the back of the packet where they recommend reducing normal food when giving these treats but she has concluded it is like her and chocolate. You just need to be sensible. With us piggies the best treats are of course veggies but every once in awhile it is great to get something a little bit special and different. Mummy says whee are all in perfect condition so there are no concerns anymore! She loves the fact there is calcium in it to keep our teeth strong. Though to much calcium, like everything can be bad for you.

Whee give these treats a 9/10

It would be good to know things like how much vitamin c for example is in them. As whee cannot produce our own vitamin c and  need a  good amount, Mummy is very conscious of getting it into us and find that sort of thing helpful when considering treats.

Anyway, here is the fun bit! Us doing the very complicated and lengthy process of ‘taste testing’!

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?
