Meaty Bacon flavored Bandits fits the bill as it does not contain sugar as one of its first ingredients. A good number of the ferrets who have lived with me have enjoyed various flavors of Bandits and this one more than most. It's high in meat protein so it's likely good for ferrets, who are obligate carnivores and who can't process much of the fillers found in many other treats. My little girl ferret, easily the most finicky eater I've ever met, loves them. In fact, these and the raisn flavor are the only things she will take as a treat. She may possibly be the only ferret in creation that won't touch linatone or duck soup.
What you should know about this product is that it's not food or a substitute for food. Your ferret needs a healthy diet of veterinarian approved food specified for ferrets. This item is a treat, to supplement that food or to provide a dessert. (One of my previous ferrets needed a treat to start dinner, or he wouldn't eat!) While I am not a vet or vet tech, I have observed that in most of the ferrets with whom I have lived, getting too many Bandits in one day usually leads to loose, smelly stools, so if your ferret wears the pants in the family and can get treats out of anyone, be warned. Not only is this unpleasant, but it can dehydrate your ferret if allowed to go on for more any length of time. You should also be aware that ferrets decide what is food and what are treats very early in their life. Unlike dogs or cats, most will not experiment or try something new. If you've never offered Bandits to your older ferret, it may totally ignore these as it doesn't see them as food or treats.
Finally, as this is written, you should also be aware that this product has not been in any local stores for going on four to five months. It appears that Marshall Farms is chaning their packaging and that this may be the cause, but it's worth noting.
One thing I will say is the smell from the bag is a little strange but there is a hint of bacon in there somewhere I think..
Overall I would recommend these treats in moderation and over the other flavors of the Bandits treats. Also, I don't recommend trying one yourself........that was a mistake.
