What is your favorite treat for your gliders and how often do you feed it? Why did you choose this one?

I like pine nuts, pecan pieces, yoggies, dried fruit or flowers. The flowers just go in the cage. Everything else I hand feed them. I like these because the babies like them. I don't do it every day, but a few times a week. They never know when I'm going to do it! I stopped doing mealies because I don't feel comfortable keeping the bedding clean and safe for the gliders.

I found organic? roasted edamame at the grocery. I break them in half and give only one half about 1 or 2 x a week. They go crazy for it. (not to mention how insaine they go with reg. edamame!!!)    
Yoggies of course, mealworms mostly for nail time, dried fruit, (guilty of letting them lick my buttery popcorn fingers, Bad mommy...)

LOL, I think we've all done that! I gave one of mine part of an oatmeal cookie once! And all of them have had licks of ice cream or pudding :)

Mine love yogurt drops and mealworms.  Most of mine also love pine nuts (Toffee and Zoey don't eat them).  They really like any and all kinds of nuts and seeds.  I try to give treats every morning so I can make sure everyone is okay before I go to work.  I bought a container of mealworms at the pet store recently (so tiny!) and they have been loving those so much, I finally ordered some from Grubco.  Mine also adore eucalyptus leaves and branches - I gotta order some of those soon, too!

I give treats every morning as I send them off to bed. This is one of my regular "check" times, and every glider in my house is waiting for their treat when I turn on the light in the room. Hands down, all of the gliders here prefer yoggies as a treat. Therefore, this is the treat I give the most often. Pine nuts, mealies, pecan, unsalted sunflower seeds and dried papaya are also on the list of yummies here.

I get home from work around 6:30 am wash up and go directly to the glider room. They get a treat and a visual inspection. I give a small yoggie or mealies anything else and we have a glider riot. Once in a while in tent time they get dried fruit like unsweetened Papaya or pineapple.
