It is the kind I buy for myself. I don't have regular in the house. I have read about using peanut butter as an occasional treat but is powdered peanut butter ok too?

What are the ingredients?

Generally peanuts should be fed in small quantities as they are a common allergen but if this ends up being safe it would be fine to feed on occasion.

ingredients are: Roasted peanuts, sugar and salt.   (sugar in nutrition label says total sugars 2gms, includes added sugar 1gm.  sodium is 4%.

Edit: Can they have taco shells? Mine are blue corn.

I would steer clear; generally if you feed peanut butter it should only be peanuts. You can make your own if you want by throwing peanuts in a blender for a few minutes; the oils in it act as a natural binder.

As for taco shells, I seriously doubt the only ingredient would be corn flour, so I’d steer clear. If you really want to feed some human food maybe try some low-sugar cereal like Cheerios?

I would try peanut in the shell. They have no added salt or sugar and are a great activity for them. Put the peanut in she'll in all. They have to work the peanut out of the shell like they would in the wild. I would only give one whole peanut at a time because they are high in fat. You can buy a nice size bag of them pretty cheap.
