I tend to completely avoid such commercial treats as they are usually they are high in sugar and, in the case of the mueslis, contain unsuitable ingredients (seeds, grains etc).

as far as muesli mixes go that is not the worst as it doesn't contain seeds or anything that should be completely avoided other than the weird red chunks which I have no idea what they are so I used to pick them out. That said may of the ingredients are occasional treats at best and really aren't great for piggy's not to mention that muesli mixes aren't usually a good idea for piggy's anyway. I used to use this mix in my boys treat ball and foraging toys but not any more since I discovered piggie parcels dried forage and started occasionally putting the boys usual pellets into their treat ball for added enrichment. I have never had the other ones but they look very surgery and not something I would ever give my boys.

For treats mine get a strawberry top, blueberry or a bit of banana or melon skin. Atm they have some forage from piggy parcels sprinkled with Pro C every morning to help build up their winter reserves as they are in an unheated garage (they have lots to keep them warm).
