I have always loved Animal Crackers, slightly sweet with a crisp texture. As a child not much older than Shirley Temple in Curly Top, I have fond memories of grocery shopping with my grandmother. She would treat me to a sweet. My choice would always be the box of animal crackers. The adorable animals housed in their purselike container would travel with me through the day. I would take them out to play, and of course nibble their heads and toes.
Times have changed...Barnum's Animal Crackers now have a new package design, a victory for PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. My beloved crackers have been caged for 116 years are now roaming freely next to one another on sweeping savanna. It's nice to see them walking in the wild, to be enjoyed for many more years to come.
