Question Peppers for Hammies...

I have kept a number of Hammies as pets over the years.
But I was surfing some other Forums and they said that Peppers were also liked by some Hammies.
But what type of Peppers?

One site said "SWEET" Peppers, are we talking about Banana Peppers?
Or are they talking about your EVERYDAY Garden varity of Peppers that you put on your Salads?
aka: Green, Red Peppers, I've always called them "Mango's" if that helps any.

Or which this one I doubt are they talking About my Beloved "HOT" Peppers, Jalopeano, Carabeian, Habanero and the Likes?

And are we talking Fresh Peppers or Dried or Both?

This is the First I've heard of Hammies Liking Peppers, and I just wanted to Make sure so I wouldn't hurt it's Little Hammie Belly...

Thanks for any Help...

I have fed green peppers to my rats and mice and they love them.My sister has a little hamster and she fed him green peppers before, but I don't think he cared much for them.

Banana peppers are actually a type of hot pepper (which I love!)so I wouldn't reccommend feeding those to little rodents.

I've fed green peppers before but I've found most of my hamsters ignore them. But the ones who do like them usually love them, hehe . I haven't fed them to Zelda yet.

Green/Red/Yellow Peppers you would use in a salad, on a Pizza are OK as they are not spicy. I have given bits of vegan pizza (no Cheese or meat) to rats b4, loved the veggies (inc. the sweet peppers), licked the sause and ate the crust. They loved it.
