In a drive to move away from plastics, multi-award-winning guinea pig accessories brand HayPigs! has devised an ingenious edible bowl for small furries. The HayPigs! Nosh Bowl is styled to resemble the company’s iconic circus bowls and fits with the existing circus-themed range.

The delicious little bowls are made from compressed meadow grass and sprinkled in a fine dusting of herbs. The cheerful circus pattern is also completely edible as it’s made from dried carrot.

HayPigs! founders, Rik & Helen, are keen to stress that this is not just a gimmick, it’s what their audience wants:
“We decided it was time to re-evaluate the whole concept of a bowl,” said Ringmaster, Rik. “At the end of the day, it’s just a vessel for carrying and presenting food. We conducted extensive research trials and our evidence was very clear; without food in the bowls, our piggies just weren’t interested, so what’s the point?! Our audience demands more of us – they want to eat the bowl as well.”

Helen, a mother of seven guinea pigs and co-founder of HayPigs! was keen to add: “I’ve known guinea pigs flip over empty food bowls in disgust, they’ll just not have it. Have you ever met an angry guinea pig?! It’s frightening! Seriously though, we think we’ve got a great solution here; it’s eco-friendly, sustainable and delectable – what more could you want?!”

The HayPigs! Nosh Bowl retails at £7.99 and is available from while stocks last.
