I thought I would try & keep track of what foods the puddings & toyboys like/dislike. This post concentrates on fruit.
Firstly, fruit is generally a no-no.
Apple is the exception. The puddings will confidently lick a slice of apple & maybe even nibble a tiny bit, however they are not really too fussed whether apple is on the menu or not. In contrast, the toyboys rate apple very highly & will heartily chomp away. Of course given that they both feed their girlfriends, the puddings will land up with some regurgitated apple inside them anyway.
Grapes are scary. Well, in PuddingLand, grapes are definitely scary. Even peeled ones. I have yet to try a grape on the toyboys.
Strawberries have been tolerated. They have been tentatively pecked at but not ingested. The red colour may be putting strawberries at a disadvantage. I will try again with the toyboys.
When the puddings were little, they loved figs. Unfortunately, there was a long gap before they had figs again & they were that bit older & more suspicious so were not tempted to try them again. I will try the toyboys with fig…..
Apple : 8/10 (points lost due to Puddings disinterest)
Grape : -100/10 (based on Puddings opinion only)
Strawberries : 1/10 (possible room for improvement)
Figs : 4/10 (assumption that Puddings will enjoy them once they get the taste again)
