    You shouldn't be feeding them to your guinea pigs anyway. They're lactose intolerant, so shouldn't have any kind of dairy products.

    Haha that is funny actually, when I was a little kid and we had guinea pigs I used to eat them too. The main ingredients are like milk and sugar.

    @bpatters is right though, they aren't very good for your guinea pigs and if they don't care for them anyway you'd be better off just getting them veggies. They will like them more and it's better for them

    apparently my grandmother used to try everything new that she bought for her cats because if it wasnt good enough for her, the cats weren't getting it either

    I agree with the above about them being bad for pigs. Though they do smell really good, when I used to feed them before I knew better I always wondered what they would taste like since they smelled so awesome. Some of the girls at the barn I went to used to eat salt licks... like whole salt licks... I wonder if they're still alive.

    I can see eating the sugar cubes...I remember eating them as a kid too. But salt licks...oh my gosh. I worry about the sodium if I eat to many crackers.

    All store treats are bad imo for all animals. It's like you eating processed unhealthy food. The best treat to give your gps is an approved veggy and maybe occasionally a piece of fruit that they don't get as part of their daily menu.

    From what I know they aren't even good for horses (Since horses have a similar diet to that of a Guinea Pig, I'd assume pure salt isn't good for them either) But it was almost like a contest at the barn "I ate a whole strawberry salt lick yesterday!" "Well I ate two!"
