I'm mostly asking out of curiousity. I'm planning on using Mazuri as my mice's staple diet, but would like something to give them for variety.

It’s high in crude protein for the average pet shop mouse, which can cause bad reactions.  It looks pretty similar to most of the block food I’ve looked at. That is to say not great but nothing harmful. Basically sweetened fortified corn, wheat, and soy. Pretty much the same as mazuri. IMO, block food should be fed alongside a good seed mix. Variety is an important part of a healthy diet.
