Cuy, one of Peru's most famous dishes, is not for the faint of heart; it's fried or roasted guinea pig, and it's a Peruvian delicacy.

These ravishing rodents require little space and happily hoof up vegetable scraps, factors that make them ideal to farm.

Gourmet cuy, however, are fed an exclusively alfalfa diet to ensure the meat is as tender as possible.

They're often cooked whole — yes, with the head, teeth, ears and other parts left intact — and doused in salt and garlic to crisp up the skin.

Guinea pig meat is high in protein and low in fat, with more than 20% protein, which is higher than in chicken, beef, lamb or pork.

And with only around 8% fat, it is also leaner than most other common meats.

It is also rich in Omega 3 fatty acids and Vitamin B, and as such is a healthier as well as cheaper alternative to other meats.

    Not pleased
    Review by Angry Dave, 01/04/2016
    My order arrived promptly when expected, however them cooking was a little harder than I imagined. One managed to escape and get behind the kitchen cupboards, which is an absolute nightmare because my wife insisted on getting the most expensive and complex kitchen setup despite only (over)cooking once a year to show off to Deborah, her more successful sister. The Rangemaster had to be pulled out, with a lot of effort, and three kitchen units have been dismantled and probably permanently because the assembly is proving about as difficult to solve as a rubix cube to a Stevie Wonder. I managed to recover the guinea pig but now the kids are crying, which in turn has made the wife angry, because they want to keep the thing as a pet... I ordered the Cuy expecting it to be in a similar state as my chicken, dead and ready to be converted int gainz with minimal effort. Instead I have purchased a pet and as a result half the kitchen is demolished. I'm currently have to make up and excuse about why Gustov the guinea pig is going to take a holiday in the next few days. The cat got the other one. It's Friday and I'm already looking forward to Monday.

    They arrived very fresh so that's a 5 for quality, price isn't bad but hard to judge the value.
    Best kind of meat

    Great April fools lmfao
    If you're serious about gains then you need these guys in your life.
    Review by Guineapigconvert, 01/04/2016
    If you have ever thought to yourself "man I need to up my gains by eating some little furry rat like animal!" then this is the product for you. These little guys pack some serious GAINZ. One minute I was a poor skinny runt, ate a guinea pig and now I'm a BEAST! I have absorbed the power of the guinea pig and I couldn't thank MuscleFood more! You need these in your life!

    My only wish is that you take the fur off next time, it kind of gets stuck in your teeth!
    Tastes like chicken
    Review by Allie, 01/04/2016
    Little bit dry, but lovely with s butter and pepper jus.
    The price is competitive with local pet store who sell portions at twice the price.
    And you have to do the preparation yourself, especially since it's difficult to get them to stay in a pre heated oven.
    Overall an excellent product
