Nutrition:

  • The fruit in the Fruit Cocktail mix are all reasonably high in vitamin C so this is good for Guinea Pigs as (like humans) they cannot make their own vitamin C.
  • Like all fruit these slices are naturally high in sugar so should be kept as an occasional treat. I like the fact that this is mentioned on the Binky and Wheeks site:
  • “A good source of vitamins and fibre, this is great for an occasional treat, and the small pieces make it easy to feed only little amounts.”

Review:

  • Binky and Wheeks describe their Fruit Salad as:

“Apple, pear and kiwi fruit in equal measures combine to make this one of our sweetest treats! This mixture is unique to us and smells beautiful.”

-Binky and Wheeks

  • …and they’re not exaggerating
  • A wonderful sweet aroma hits you when you open the bag. 
  • I really love that the Binky and Wheeks bags are resealable. 
  • The fruit pieces are well sized and brightly coloured.
  • The fruit sourced by Binky and Wheeks is food grade and the end product certainly looks enough to eat (as a human). 
  • Slincypig immediately grabbed a slice of kiwi and it certainly didn’t last long before it was joined by a short lived slice of apple.
  • The 12 members of the Girlyfluff Gang were equally impressed and thoroughly enjoyed their taster.
  • 45g is a deceptively generous quantity and would last a good while with a pair or small group. 
  • There was even a fair bit left over after all of the Girlyfluffs had each taken their pick.



Conclusion:

  • A lovely occasional treat that is well packaged and well liked by the Squidgypigs. 

Binky and Wheeks were kind enough to send the Squidgypigs these samples to review; to find out more about Binky and Wheeks check out our Binky and Wheeks intro page HERE or visit www.binkyandwheeks.com
