Pandas in China enjoy special baked goodies

January 29, 2012 12:00:00 AM PST
There's a hit new item on the menu for pandas at a special center in China's Sichuan Province.

The keepers there started giving the animals special cakes, which they seem to like a lot.

A typical panda diet consists mostly of bamboo, but staff members at this center say the cakes offer some extra nutrients.

The baked treats are made with flour, soybeans, corn and oats.

The cakes are purposefully hung off the end of a long pole, so that the pandas get some extra exercise while they're getting the cakes.
