Maybe you shouldn't. Chocolates are known to be harmful for pets. Besides, hamsters have cheekpouches where they store food. Chocolate, being sticky will cause food to get stuck in there when it melts. So, no chocolates for hamsters please. =)

I don't think you should feed your hamster chocolate.. If it melts in their cheek pouches it could cause serious problems and you need to take him to the vet to clean his pouch. Chocolate is also not very healthy for them, so if you wanna feed him chocolate please do so in small amounts.

I read in one of the websites about hamster care that chocolates and citrus fruits (oranges, lemons.etc) can do more harm than good to hamsters. Yes - they can die as a result from consuming these items. Be very careful with what you feed your hamsters. My Roborovski hamsters eats mainly the pre-packed hamster feed that I buy from the local petstore. In addition, I feed them with other types of grains and nuts. I add a carrots and chinese water chestnut into their diet, as recommended by some experts. Not too much fruits and vegetables as they are prone to diarrhea. Mine loves Almonds and Walnuts, a pretty expensive item here in Malaysia!

I gave my hamsters some, and my brother was very angry to me at that time. He said that chocolates are not good for them. But they like the chocolate! heehee....

the reason why i never give my hamster chocolate, is that they will probably die.. bean sprouts are good for hamster fertility.. definitely

i know they will eat it. i have tried it . i give them chocolate wafers, s\junk foods, and even chocolate drinks and juices. they love it. but when they eat it their body generates fats making them fat just like human does. when they are fat they became lazy and became less active
