Product Review: Kaytee Fiesta Healthy Toppings Papaya Treats for Small Animals
It's a little deceptive for them to put "healthy" in the name of these treats. Here's the problem with them: they include artificial colors and dried fruit pieces, and nothing else. Both ingredients are not recommended parts of a good guinea pig diet. They are tasty, however:
I've got a sugar high now!
Toss those things through the bars into our cage!
So they're sugary and tasty, but there's nothing else good you can say about these things. Let's put this in terms you humans can understand: Have you ever eaten a whole bunch of junk food, enjoyed it at the time, but then felt guilty afterwards and hit the gym extra-hard to make up for it? Well, let's just say we feel like we're going to need plenty of timothy hay and floor time to make up for eating this stuff, even if we did like it at the time. We'll give it 1.5/5 stars.
