broccoli and popcorn are the two biggies, they also love banana chips (rare treat, i know, they're sugary) and peanuts in shells.

Pistachio nuts (unroasted in shells) are a new one ... they seem to adore them but can't get into the shells properly ... amusing to watch though .

peanuts (not in shell) are good for amusement factor too as one grabs hold and kinda turns in circles while nomm-ing as the other chases her round in circles trying to get a bite

I don't have any hamsters at the moment but unsalted popcorn, nuts, yogurt drops, and raisins (very, very sparingly--especially if you have a dwarf!) were always favorites .

My hamster loves yogurt treats and we always give her strawberries and lettuce once a week in her food. Plus once a month we give her a tiny tiny bit of real yogurt. Yeah like everyone else said Peanuts in shells are great for hamsters and mice, they love them. [[At least mine do!!]]

absoloutly favorite for almost al of my animals is dehydrated bananas, oranges and pineapple peices. it kept all the gerbils happy munchin in their cage, got the bunnies out from under the bed, made the hammies cheeks huge and made the bird like me a lil. ohh and my little ones like peices of cat and dog food and bits of cereal every once in a while

Cat=1
Degus=2
Dogs= 4
Gerbils=8 (more on the way soon)
Hamsters=2
Parrot=1

My babies are crazy over spinach! It's the only food they'd take straight from our hands in the beginning when they were still getting used to us.
