Default store-bought "small animal" treats

my mom bought some treats for her hamster, but the hamster doesn't like them, so she gave them to me. They are "le bon croissants" intended for small animal consumption. I'd like to see if my hedgie would enjoy them as an occasional treat, but I wanted to get an opinion on whether they would be ok or not. Here's the packaging info...

Guaranteed Analysis:
crude protein (min) 11%
crude fat (min) 6%
crude fiber (max) 1%
moisture (max) 10%
crude ash (max) 1%

Ingredients: wheat flour, egg products, milk powder, sugar, butter, cheese, wheat germ meal, soybean oil, natural flavoring, L-calcium pantothenate, calcium carbonate, ferrous sulfate, monosodium phosphate, sodium, metabisulfite, zinc oxide, copper sulfate, potassium chloride, sodium selenite, riboflavin supplement, vitamin B12 supplement, pyridoxine hydrochloride, vitamin B6 supplement, ascorbic acid (source of vitamin C), dl-alpha tocopheryl acetate (source of vitamin E)

Any info on whether or not these are ok as treats would be much appreciated!
