"Guinea Pig Crunch"

^^^ Wagg - Guinea Pig Crunch ^^^

MAY CONTAIN TRACES OF NUT

2kg bag - Tasty Food for Guinea Pigs!!


^^ Contents ^^On opening the packet I could clearly see lots of bright green flakes (cabbage) also on closer examination I found:
  • Green cabbage which was crinkled on each side and half inch in diameter.
  • Light brown sausage shaped nuggets also about half an inch long.
  • Medium brown coloured pyramid shaped nuggets.
  • Yellow corregated sweetcorn.
  • Brown clover shaped biscuit.
  • Small seeds.
  • Grains.
  • Dark brown nuggets.
  • What look like green peas.

^^ Feeding Guide ^^Feed twice a day at regular times with 15-25 grams of guinea pig Crunch. (A teecup is approximately 100 grams). Always provide fresh WATER and make sure HAY is also available at all times. Small twigs also help to keep teeth in good order. They also enjoy fruit and vegetables such as cabbage, carrots, apple, pears and swede.

^^ Packaging ^^

This large 2kg bag is bright red and has two Guinea Pigs at the top, with Wagg in white writing and Guinea pig Crunch below in blue writing. The packaging states that this is a tasty food for Guinea Pigs, and has added vitamin C. It is also made with wholesome ingredients.

^^ Why Buy? ^^

I have two guinea Pigs called Paris and Portia who were given to me as a present. They are lovely, but reather shy little critters, and I thought I would try this brand from Asda instead of their usual brand. As they say - variety is the spice of life.

^^ My Opinion ^^

There is a large variety in this bag of dry food and it is bright and colourful. I do find that the guinea pigs do tend to leave the dark brown nuggets, but are very keen and eager to tuck into their dinner. I would definately buy this again if I saw it out shopping. I think the 2kg bag was around £1.99, so i think it was very good value for money.

I'm not going to personally taste it, but the Guinea Pigs love it!
