Can Guinea Pigs Eat Sugar Snap Peas?

You know the old saying: There's no accounting for taste. Today's review of sugar snap peas proves it. Buffy thought these things weren't bad, but I didn't care for them at all. Sugar snap peas can be fed to us 2-4 times per week, 1-2 pods per piggy (but just because they can doesn't mean they should).

Aren't these things called "sugar" snap peas? Why aren't they sweet-tasting like raspberries then?
I dropped mine because I didn't care for the taste of these peas, but Buffy was munching away at hers. I figured she must have somehow tricked me into eating a bad one while she was eating one of the good ones. I wasn't about to let that slide! So I took her pea pod and gave it a try.

I didn't like Buffy's pea pod, either. Could I have something else, human?
Buffy liked these things a lot more than I did, but even she got bored of them after eating about two-thirds of a pod. We give sugar snap peas 2/5 stars.

  1. Awww, they are so cute! Mika and Astro get given sugar snap peas too, Astro doesn't like them though... just like Lola! Mika is like Buffy and will get nearly to the end then suddenly change his mind! :P

  2. None of my herd of Piggyfriends like these at all. They just stand on them and ask " so where is the real food then?"

  3. Sounds like our sugar snap pea rating holds true for other piggies, too!

    1. My guinea pigs love snap peas, too. Snap and Snow peas (or pods) are high in Vitamin C.

  7. My piggy does not care for the pods but if I remove the peas and feed him just those he will dig through his salad picking out the peas first. They even take priority over his favorite fruits. Then again he seems to have very odd food preferences as piggies go.
