Default Yoghurt drops.

There seem to be a lot in this bag, even if I would give my Syrian five each day as the packet states as the maximum (though I wonder if that is too many). What is the shelf life of these things once they are opened?

I think they should be OK. Jasper has gone through 3 packets since I got him in May. However at one point the little cup I keep them all in did go down significatly over night, I'm sure the cat had something to do with it! They should last ages though, don't worry about it.

They keep for ages if you put them in a little plastic box with a sealable lid. I would not give more than two a day as they do have sugar in them.

I never knew they had sugar. I am sticking to no more than two a day! Thanks for that.

Yes I might get some of those plastic containers that seal for all my foods for him.

Those treats are fantastic! I would give Kimmi my syrian 1 yogurt drop, and 1 choc drop everyday
They last for ages, don't worry :P

I would melt mine a little with some hot water, melted chocolate tastes richer

Well as usual what you have said is ever so sweet and thoughtful but am I correct in saying that hamster chocolate has a higher melting point compared to human chocolate in case it is carried in pouches?

That's true liam, if it was melted it could get stuck in the hammies pouch and cause a blockage, so only give them solid.

Gosh!

I've been oblivious to this hazard! Thanks for telling me, didn't want my new dwarfies getting hurt

What if I totally melted the chocolate drop and spreaded it finely on to a banana slice? would that be safe?

I would say no because again this could end up in the pouch.

You are the one who told me hamsters have stronger taste buds compared to humans. They do not need their chocolate melted in order to enjoy it more. I think you are being too nice. I also think you are extremely creative. How about you leave the food as it is but change the way you serve it, i.e. put a treat in one of those DIY play balls?

My mind spins one billion miles per hour. Eventually I will have enough information about hamsters and their diet to get into a routine. Once I do I think I will take on some DIY projects to make toys and treats for the hamsters!
