Who doesn’t enjoy them?
They are that blend of cookie and cracker in one, that we can mindlessly consume and feel guilty for later.
in the history of the Animal Crackers there have been 37 different animals since the National Biscuit Company brought out the Barnum’s Animals boxes.
Per the Wiki
The current animals:
To celebrate its 100th anniversary, Barnum’s added the koala to the menagerie in September 2002.
Austin Zoo Animal Crackers currently feature bear, camel, elephant, rhinoceros, lion, monkey, owl, penguin, rabbit, ram, turtle, and zebra.
Cadburys Animals are chocolate coated (although rather sparingly) and feature elephant, monkey, lion, tiger and hippo – all with nicknames and all rather the same shape.
Stauffer’s animal crackers include a lion, elephant, mountain goat, cow, house cat, camel, tiger, horse, donkey, rhinoceros, hippopotamus, American buffalo (or bison) and bear.
The Animal Crackers came to America in the late 1800’s.
Sorry FakingShock, but the consumer vote for new animals chose koala over penguin, perhaps next time.
PS – It is also Wear your Pajamas to Work Day. I am not celebrating because my company has this dress code… I must be wearing something, which is more than I do when I sleep.
