I love animal cookies
***barbara's snackimals are the best tasting and most natural cookies around. 

Animal crackers are 100 years old ! 
It was back in 1902 that Nabisco took a cookie  yes, even they admit it's not really a cracker which had been popular in England for years and created Barnum's Animals as they're officially called.
Barnum's Animals was an instant success thanks to marketing Nabisco put them in a package that looked like a circus wagon and attached a string handle, the string was so the boxes could be hung on Christmas trees.
We all had a favorite animal whose head we preferred to bite off. Over the years 37 different animals have been depicted on the crackers, though at the moment there are only 17, To celebrate its 100th anniversary, Barnum’s added the koala to the menage in September 2002.
