Woodlands Carrot Shape Vegetable Treat Review

Now I have actually found a worthwhile treat. No more rubbish chew books, oh no!
Woodlands‘ seems to be a growing brand at my local pet shop. They seem to go for the ‘natural and healthy toys and treats’ angle for your pets. They make cottages, houses, treats, chew toys, nibbles and even bridges all in this rustic look.

I have noticed more and more products with this brand and thought I would see what the fuss is about.

I bought the Carrot Shape Vegetable Treat – not the most original name ever but it does what it says on the tin!

First impressions?
It looks great!
The packaging is simple and very eye-catching and really emphasises that natural and healthy aspect of the product.
Ohhh I feel all Dragons Den! ;P

Its also a very reasonable size – it dwarfs Dexter in comparison! It looks the part for sure. And the little seedy things all over it, I know for a fact that my hammy’s LOVE it. Basically, buying this isn’t a punt, its not a risky buy – its pretty much a sure fire winner for my hams!

And judging by the size, this treat is not exactly going to be munched through overnight! So its like an investment as well as a treat for the hamsters! Kind of πŸ˜‰

Now perfectly, they were on offer; 3 for Β£3 which as they were Β£1-something-or-ratherΒ individually meant I could make a little saving too! Bargain right?! And of course I would need three for my 3 munchers!

I put the treats in their cage and almost within an instant, they were being sniffed and licked and dragged to their nests – very cute when the carrots are the same length of the hammys themselves!

Here is Casper, suspiciously licking the carrot. You can gauge the size of the carrot treat here – a generous portion for a treat don’t you think?

It doesnt even fit in his bowl! Very tempting right Cas πŸ˜‰

So far so good – much better than the bedtime book chew toys πŸ˜€

There weren’t just carrot shaped treats. There was a choice of a carrot, a heart and stars which means you could spoil your pet in a choice of ways! I would have gotten one of each, as they are all included on the offer, but decided that I liked the carrot ones the best so just got three of them! πŸ˜›

Even the ever fussy Dexter liked the treat shape. It only lasted for a matter of minutes in his bowl, as he attempted to drag it to his nest. It was very sweet as it was too heavy and big and so became a bit of a kerfuffle, getting wedged underneath the ledge and his flying saucer. Silly Billy!

This is the only photo I could get before his taste of the Woodlands carrot got too much to handle and he had to have it in his nest before a greedy human took it out! I would never steal it, I swear! But Dexter doesn’t believe me, he is such a paranoid furry! πŸ˜‰ hehehe.

So basically here is my little factfile for you…

Name: Carrot Shape Vegetable Treat
Brand: Woodlands
Price: Β£1.19 individually
Offer: 3 for Β£3
Available from: Pets at Home
Overall Look: 10/10, looks very quaint and appealing!
Value for money? For the size and whilst its on offer, yes. Great value!
Rating: 9/10, hard to fault!

  1. Looks great. Mummy buys us the packets of woodlands little treats, our favourites are carrot shaped. Whee might review some little woodland treats as whee have definite favourites. Some of them are suitable for hammies and piggies so whee will have a little look and recommend the best!

    They also have herbal hay forage which whee love too!

    Nibbles, Nutty, Buddy & Basil

    • Arent they great! I have heard so many good reviews on their stuff! They are suitable for all the cool pets ;D hahaa, I was tempted to get the star-shapes, becasue they had little strings attached that mean you could hang them down into the cage but they were huge compared to the hamsters and they would end up scoffing their faces so full they wouldnt be able to move! No, we shall stick to the cute carrots for now ;D hehe, Ohh i saw the foragey stuff, it looked good on the shelf. Not sure hammys can have it though … hmmmm ;D xxxx

  2. If I had a hamster I would certainly try this treat. Looks hamster yummy!

  3. We got the Woodlands Chinchilla Herbal Forage for the chins and they love it! We give a little handful as a treat and the leaves get picked out and gobbled straight away πŸ™‚

    • Ooooh sounds yummy! I did see they did stuff for all kinds of small furries! Hahaha, owww they have their fav bits of it then! πŸ˜€ Super cute!! πŸ˜€

  4. That carrot shaped treat looks yummy. Mom is too mean to buy me one, but don’t worry. I ate some sunflower seeds I found on the ground at the baseball field. Actually, they were just leftover shells of seeds that the baseball players may or may not have chewed and spit out. They were delicious. Mom said, “That’s enough. Get in the car.” Mean, right?

    • I bet this carrot treat wouldnt be your cup of tea cupcake, you’d want something more meaty and not so ‘seedy’ perhaps ahha πŸ˜› plus you’d munch it in one go! πŸ˜€ Awww sunflower seeds are tasty though, you have to check the shells to make sure you’ve got all that last tastiness out! πŸ˜€ Aww Momm!!! So unfair !! πŸ˜‰ hehe, next time you will have to do it sneakily ;D xxx

  5. That looks like an energy bar, I would eat it.

Squeak up folks! What do you think??
