Couldnt get any dreamies but Kit came home with some "beaphar Malt Bits"

Our cats have gone crazy for them so i just had to find out why!
They smell a bit like frazzles and maltyness..
hard to crunch but actually quite yummy!
A bit of a cereal/wheaty taste but not fake tasting like other treats

boggles 4/5 !! :D

This kept me highly amused on my lunchbreak today :lol: :lol: :lol:

All I have to contribute is that banana Septrin does in fact taste like something banana flavoured (like Angel Delight, not like an actual banana), but has a very bitter aftertaste.

Next on the list P@H apple drops.

Smells of nothing much, looks like plastic.
Tastes very sickly, creamy consistency, can't detect any apple.
Weird aftertaste, very synthetic.

Initial taste, 4/5 boggles
Aftertaste, 2/5 boggles

This thread is amazing! :lol:

I'm so glad I can use my veganism as an excuse not to try any of my rat's food.
The only things they eat that I'd ever try is pumpkin seeds, corn on the cob, alpro soya yoghurt and monkey nuts. Bit of a cop out really :lol:

And a big Urgh! for those that have tried wet cat and dog food. I cannot think of anything worse!

I did once try a hamster yoggie when I was little and all I remember it tasting like was a small, hard piece of vomit :lol:

My rat rations order arrived today (wanted the seed mix so decided to buy everything i needed to save on postage, it was like christmas at my house today!) so of course some of the ingridents had to be opened to see what they were like, have to say the smell of a lot of it was amazing!

The dogs were very impressed as well and seemed to really enjoy the burns dog food, though that may have been because they knew it was really for them and they didnt view as 'dog food'.

I was mixing up Esk's daily spa tone and nutrical. Slightly runnier mix today and totally unconsciously when I was done mixing it up I stuck my finger in my mough.

Actually disgusting. What shall I try rinsing my mouth out with next?! :sickrat: :sickrat: :sickrat: :sickrat:
