I speak from experience. The nitrosamines that result of the corn consumption are carcinogenic; it's worse in mice (MUCH worse), but do you really want to take the risk with your rats? I've raised both rats and mice for a long time now (mice longer), and once I removed the corn from their diets did I notice an almost complete reduction in early murine death (mice fed diets that contained corn kernals in them died quicker/younger than mice without the corn).

Also, these ingredients:

whole corn, striped sunflower seed, pumpkin seed, shelled peanuts, jumbo green peas, almonds, pecans, walnuts, banana chips

combined will make your critters obese. There's just too much fat in this concoction to even think about giving it to them on a daily basis. I don't think I could ever recommend something like this, no matter if my rats "liked" it or not. For treats, maybe, but not as the main staple of their daily diet.

Up until very recently, this was the only food I would feed my pet rats they were the only soy-free rat food on the market. My rats love this food. HOWEVER, FM Brown's has started using soy in their rat & mouse food within the past couple months. There is evidence to show, and my own experience is that soy is like POISON to rats. It cuts their lifespan in half and causes CANCER, particularly in females. Because FM Brown's recently made the decision to add the soy to their mix, the ingredients listed on Amazon are not even accurate. There is soy in the food and it is BAD for your rats!!! If you care about your "babies", please boycott FM Brown's and let them know you will not buy their products until they take out the soy!!!

In August 2010 FM Brown's changed the formula of their Tropical Carnival food for rats and mice. The same month a study was published stating that a diet high in soy "influence the development of more aggressive tumors".

The soy free formula of the Tropical Carnival diet my rats were healthy, growing larger, never sick, having huge litters, living longer, and that says a lot for someone who has over 100 rats. However, after not having had a sick rat in months, when FM Brown's switched to the new formula, more than 30 rats became sick AND more than 20 rats died.

When this happened, FM Brown's was immediately contacted and, at that time, they did admit to changing the formula, although insisting that it had nothing to do with money.

If you want to cut your vet bills and keep your rats healthy, DO NOT FEED THIS TO YOUR RATS!!!

In August, 2010, FM Brown's decided that the bottom line was more important than the health of our beloved furries. At this point now, FM Brown's customer service has been instructed to LIE to their customers. Although I have written proof that in March of 2010 Tropical Carnival was soy free, their company is now lying to their customers, stating that soy has always been in their food, because it is cheaper.

Please do not support a company that does not care about our animals. Please help join the boycott of FM Brown's Tropical Carnival line of foods, especially the soy laden rat and mouse mix. Help us to affect their bottom line and realize that we do not want another soy laden food that will kill our pets, but want a soy free food that will ensure a long and healthy life.

Rats are supposed to live 3-5 years, not 2-3. FM Brown's joined the soy laden band wagon and has decided that their bottom line is more important than having our pets around for their full lifetime.

My mice are large uninterested in this food except for the flower-shaped pellets and the fatty seeds. There are dried peas, lentils, and a bunch of other grains the mice won't eat. I also find it to be a hassle to have to pick out the corn and the sunflower seeds. The corn shouldn't be included since neither mice or rats should be eating any corn. The sunflower seeds I withhold to hopefully decrease their fat intake...

Like others mentioned, the food smells fantastic, like fruit.

Tropical Carnival For rats and Mice use to contain soy, but they have re-made their receipe and it is now soy-free. Please read the ingredients on any bag of rat food to make sure it is soy-free because there could still be older bags of Brown's out there. This is the only food that contains no soy, and soy is being found out causes tumors in rats. Including other health problems. if you are interested in learning more aboy soy-free, there is a soy-freegroup for rats on yahoo.

My two boys love this food. I started them on this and then read that the food "cubes" were better for them. Halfway through the box of the cubes I noticed the smell coming from their cage, no matter how clean, was horrible. I put them back on this food and that horrible smell is gone. They eat everything in the bowl. I am glad they are not picking out just what they like because I was worried if they would get the right nutrition from a mixed food like this.They are happy and healthy little boys. Also, the fresh smell of this food is amazing. I feel better feeding them something that is not overly processed.

DO NOT FEED YOUR MICE/RATS THIS CRAP IN A BAG!! I used to buy this brand for my pet mice because of the wonderful things marked on the bag. It is filled with fatty seeds and made my mice obese and the other one contracted some sort of food allergy and began losing all her fur. Its so painful to watch my mice suffer like this. Immediately I switched foods , did research and now am feeding them National Geographic foraging mix for mouse/rats and it contains everything your pets need AND my mice have slimmed down and hair is growing back!!! This FOOD SHOULD BE BANNED . IT WILL KILL YOUR BELOVED PETS!!!
