No, those don't look even remotely safe for chinchillas. Chinchillas are grass herbivores, so they should not have any fruits or vegetables. Fruits and vegetables are too high in sugars, and will cause digestive problems since they can't digest them very well.

Just wondering would the vanilla ones work or are they also dangerous?
None of the ingredients in those are really good for chins. Rice flour is not safe, wheat starch is not safe (it turns to sugar when digested), cane sugar is not safe, and apple puree is not safe. Grains can be gassy too, so the wheat flour and oat flour aren't that great either. I'm also not sure on how safe vanilla is for chins, I've never seen it listed as safe (though never seen it listed as unsafe either).
