55 Guinea pigs approve
Verified Purchase

These nuggets are smaller than the usual Burgess nuggets with mint, are similar in colour, and are an all-in-one pellet that prevents problems of selective feeding (which can cause an imbalance in diet). Most of my guinea pigs prefer these to the original flavour (one favours the mint variety). Although I haven't tasted these myself, I can say that my guinea pigs seem to find these very tasty!

45 Loved more than carrots!

By on 1 February 2014

Lenny and Jack both love this more than the normal excel guinea pig nuggets, for some reason the pieces are much much smaller compared to the original flavour, my boys found these easier to manage.

It smells wonderful and seems to help with digestion as Jack sometimes struggles with commercial foods causing constipation.

Well worth the extra few penny's and the boys prefer it to anything else even leaving carrots to run over to the bowl when I replace it.
