Vanilla wafers are a favorite dessert of many around the world.
They are made by a company called Nilla, who are a brand name owned by Nabisco.
They are renown for their line of vanilla-flavored, wafer-style cookies.
The name is a shortened version of vanilla, the tropical type of flavor common to all Nilla-branded products.
Nilla wafers have been flavored with synthetic vanillia since their introduction and as such are a popular snack food sold in many grocery stores. (source)
So can hamsters eat vanilla wafers?
Yes they can have a nibble at them as long as they don’t eat too much.
Just a little a time will suffice for them as they hold no nutritional value in them.
If they have additional flavorings or additives then they are not suitable for hamsters to eat.
