I've had something similar to that but not in the form of corn. My guinea pig nibbled on them a bit but never seemed to be too interested in them.

Yeah what is it made of anyway? "Vegetable material"? Sounds kind of vague!

Try these. My piggies love them. I give it as a treat and it lasts for awhile.

I just placed a order with critter store for treats. I bought about 10 varied boxes, alfalfa logs, corn logs, alfalfa in all different shapes and forms. I'll try yours next time.

Even if it does have food coloring, I believe it's safe because it was approved by the USDA. If they're anything like wood chews, I think they're fine(I'm not an expert though). My boys have had colored wood chews for a while now, and they still like to give it a chew here and there( it might be because it's attached to the bell, though!)

Don't waste money on these store bought treats that are made with who knows what. I can't find ingredient lists for any of these things. The best things you can give your piggies are fresh veggies and some fruit, unlimited hay and water.

Just because it's USDA approved doesn't mean it's good. Who says they are listening to the right people when they are approving the recipe. When the companies submit thier recipe for approval do you think the USDA googles up GL or Cavy Spirit/Cages for advice. Probably not. They probably turn to "knowlegable" breeders, labs and not so cavy savy vets.

USDA approved probably just means for humans. Does it specifically say it's animal safe? Personally I won't feed any of those treats. The only packaged treat I feed is American Pet Diner's Timbo hay cube. (Timothy only cube)

I've seen Oxbow Timothy cubes too. I wish I would have bought them when I saw them. They weren't there the next week.

I also feed them Brown's Alfalfa cookies once in a blue moon. I looked them up on GL and found nothing bad about them. (Except the price. I guess you can get horse cookies with the same ingredients for cheaper.)
