Can Guinea Pigs Eat Alcosa Cabbage?

Happy (belated) new years, loyal readers! Who's ready for another fun year of food and product reviews, and other guinea pig fun? Presumably you are, if you're still reading this, and we love that you are! Let's kick off 2017 with a new food review, shall we?

After doing the blog for so many years, it's been getting harder and harder to find foods that we haven't review yet that we know are okay for guinea pigs to eat. There were times we worried that we'd have to retire our food reviews because we've simply eaten everything we can in the produce section at the grocery store. Fortunately, the human are subscribed to Blue Apron, which sometimes provides unusual types of produce we've never heard of. (For example, see our review of Atlas Carrots.) Recently, the humans got an "Alcosa Cabbage" from them, which is another new one to us. We looked it up, and it turns out it's a type of savoy cabbage. This means we can have it 2-4 times per week, but only in small portions because it's a gassy food.

New food!

I'll take this row, and you take the other row. Deal?

Hey, who gets the middle row?
We couldn't reach an agreement on who got the middle row, and it turned out to be a free-for-all. It was a little chaotic, but we each got our fair share of cabbage in the end. Wish the humans would give us more, but we know we got a fairly generous portion as-is, and we can't eat too much cabbage at once. Oh well.

Alcosa Cabbage gets 5/5 stars!
