Customer Reviews

Poor Quality Dough...AvoidI bought a case of this blueberry suet dough along with a case of the apple dough made by the same company, Heath Outdoor Products. If you're unfamiliar with suet dough and its advantages over the other stuff, than let me tell you that the dough has it all over regular suet. Its consistency is firmer and less slimy, making it a stand up in any temperature, much easier to handle, and above all, the birds around these parts can't get enough of it. The only problem with this brand however is that its an inferior mix. It's suet dough all right, but whereas a good dough stays firm and handles very well, this has more of a cheap slippery texture to it and falls apart easily. The birds still prefer it over regular suet, but its obviously not as good as the more expensive but tried and true suet dough made by C&S products, (available locally here at Tractor Supply Co, as well as on Amazon). At the time I bought my cases of Heath, it was less than a dollar a cake, and shipped for free when bundled, making it not a bad deal even with it not being the best quality for sure. But this dough has a tendency to increase in price quite dramatically at times for no reason, and then goes back down again. I can only recommend this dough and its apple flavored counterpart if it stays at or below a dollar a cake. Otherwise its definitely not worth it considering the inferior quality of it. One last thing, this dough and the apple flavored doesn't ship for about a month after ordered. A very long wait by Amazon standards. Just another reason to keep an eye on the price and look elsewhere if it gets expensive...Update: Since the writing of this review the summer heat has arrived. Unfortunately this doughs inferior quality has definitely shown itself to be what it truly is, terrible. It has turned extremely slimy, falling apart at the slightest touch, and it only seems to appeal to mostly squirrels at this time. Suet dough is NOT supposed to ever be affected by the heat. (That's what makes it suet dough). I now don't recommend this dough at any price. I am going to put all mine out for the squirrels this summer and be done with it. Avoid... 1The birds like itIt's similar to the other cheap suet I've been buying - it's greasy, but I haven't had any issues with spoilage and the birds like it (it takes them two days to eat at most). It's cheaper than the other suet I've bought and the birds seem to like it just as much. Would buy again. 4Extremely crumbleyCan't speak to the "no-melt" ... but I can tell you it's certainly very, very crumbly. We often break apart suet pieces to push into woodpecker log feeders and with this stuff it's almost not worth the bother. When you break off a chunk it practically crumbles into a hundred pieces. The Juncos like it because it crumbles out of block feeders for them to pick up below. The birds do like it, but I don't think I'll buy this again. 3The Birds Aren't Crazy About This OneThe birds are mostly ignoring this suet. They occasionally stop by and pick at it a little. The last one I ordered was often swarmed by birds and even squirrels and provided lots of entertainment for my cats, who sat in the window to watch. I'm disappointed and my cats are disappointed. 2Even the grackles don't like itI bought this because (1) my birds go NUTS over suet cakes, so much so that I have three feeders for them and (2) it was a great value. I have all sorts of birds visiting, and the grackles can destroy an entire suet cake in a day, so I like having multiple on hand.It could just be that the seasons are changing, and with the warmer weather, they have more bugs to eat, so the birds who would come to the suet cake (like the warblers and kinglets) don't need it anymore. But the birds just don't care for these. Even the grackles are unimpressed. The feeders last for over a week now. The birds are still coming and destroying the other feeders, but the suet sits mostly untouched.I was surprised to see that although it's called "BERRY blast," there are absolutely no berries in this. Only artificial berry flavoring (can birds even taste it??). Seems like false advertising to me. I'll go back to buying them from the store when the birds can manage to go through the rest of these. 2Poor Quality Dough...AvoidSuet dough is something I have fed the birds here regularly for years now. I can't speak for birds in other parts of the country, but here in New England they far and favor the dough over regular suet by a wide margin. In fact during the winter months I can hardly keep the suet hangers filled with them. Besides being favored heavily by most birds, suet dough also carries the advantage of never melting, or even feeling greasy like regular suet. Making it a far better to handle, especially during the warm summer months. Despite its advantages, suet dough is not anywhere as easy to find as regular suet, so I took a chance on buying this apple blend, which at the time was being offered at a pretty fair price on Amazon for a case of 12. As much as the birds still seem to favor this dough over regular suet, I still have to say it is a very poor quality dough. Most suet dough is pretty solid stuff, rarely crumbling or coming apart at the touch. This stuff is very flaky and of a poor consistency right out of the package, and thus you lose a lot to pieces of it falling out of the hanger, or cage. Truly I don't think it tastes as good as other dough to the birds either. Although they do indeed finish this stuff up quicker than regular suet, it still lasts longer along side a better quality dough. In conclusion, although suet dough is a little harder to find, and this is a pretty good deal here on Amazon, I still can't recommend it. Definitely a poor quality all around. I suggest trying a little harder to find it locally, or move up to a better quality dough online...Update: Since the writing of this review the summer heat has arrived. Unfortunately this doughs inferior quality has definitely shown itself to be what it truly is, terrible. It has turned extremely slimy, falling apart at the slightest touch, and it only seems to appeal to mostly squirrels at this time. Suet dough is NOT supposed to ever be affected by the heat. (That's what makes it suet dough). I now don't recommend this dough at any price. I am going to put all mine out for the squirrels this summer and be done with it. Avoid... 1Good product, but very expensive.The Berry Blast is a step up from the plain suet products. I do not think it is worth the higher price. The birds may prefer the Berry Blast, but will eat the plain suet just as quickly. The Berry Blast has a berry flavor and is not filled with dried berries.My field test showed that once the Berry Blast was finished, the birds tore into the cheaper suet with the same vigor.I have been putting out a plain seed/cracked corn suet that I get from Lowe's for $8.95 per box of 10 blocks. 3love it!All of my backyard birds, including the Lovebirds, love it! 5The Birds In Our Area Love This!We purchased this in hopes to keep our feathered friends happy and bring in a few more. It has done both! We now see a range of wrens, house finch, cardnals, robins, even a woodpecker, and a couple others I haven't yet determined for sure what they are. Some days is just a stream of birds in and out between the suet feeder and our regular seed feeder. I call it my "Bird TV" as I have them hanging in view of my front door where I keep storm windows in year round so I can open and watch from across the room. 5WILD BIRD SUETTHE wild birds all love this product. I loved the price. It's easy to use also. Have used it for years but bought at stores for more money. Amazon has the best price. These are the types of birds I have: Doves, Finches, Woodpeckers,Mocking birds. I don't know all the names but do have a few other types here in Tucson, Arizona. I don't think pigeons like it; never see them eating it, although I do have a few of these birds too. 5
