I am very excited about this product. First of all I love it because it contains all natural ingredients, and not just dry regular stuff but first germinated to increase the nutritional profile. It is all organic and natural, with no nasty additives. It doesn't contain any added synthetic vitamins which is great for those who feed vitamin-enriched pellets and are afraid of overdose of the good thing.
But most importantly Digby loves it too. And what a great way to get all those tiny but so nutritious seeds into him! Tesoro crackers are really thin and really crunchy which definitely appeals to Mr Digby. Quite frankly I thought he would just pick the pumpkin seeds and throw away the rest (like he does with nutri-berries, though in those he goes for peanuts first), but he surprised me by crunching the whole thing up.
And all those crumbs are not wasted, the budgies love them :)
So what is in them?
The ingredients are as follows: Human grade organic pumpkin seeds, black sesame seeds, white sesame seeds, golden flax seeds, garlic, dulse flakes, cayenne pepper.

CAYENNE AND RED CHILI PEPPERS

The box weighs around 70 grams, but there are quite a lot of crackers and they will last us quite awhile. They are very thin and very light, that is why you get loads for such a small weight. The treats come in a plastic box which can be easily reclosed tightly to keep the treats just as fresh and crunchy. Me, Digby, Betty and my budgie boy (with no name yet) are very pleased with it!
