WAIT...don't stop reading; you at the right website and yes, I am reviewing Gerber Graduates For Toddlers Cinnamon Graham Animal Crackers. I have had (and reviewed) many a graham and animal cracker in my lifetime Health Valley Graham Crackers and my favorite, Annie's All Natural Honey Bunny Grahams, however, there is always room for a new member in the animal cracker family. I was looking around and spotted Gerber Graduates For Toddlers Cinnamon Graham Animal Crackers for $1.30 ... Score!
I would have never thought to have these, and I would definitely have been missing out. These crunchy critters are thicker, more flavorful and have more texture than any other animal or graham cracker I have ever tasted. They are thick and dense with a nice snap and soften perfectly within your mouth. The cinnamon graham flavor is prevalent and spot on.
The nutrition information is formulated for children, so 2 cookies have 30 calories and 1 gram of fat. There are 24 "kiddie" servings or about 7 adult servings. Whip out some snack sized plastic baggies and make your own "105-calorie packs". That's right, for 7 crispy, munchy, tasty cookies you will consume about 105 calories and 3.5 grams of total fat (1gram more than Uncle Wally's Smart Portion Oatmeal Raisin Cookies), 7 grams of sugar and no cholesterol or, sadly fiber. The ingredients, while consisting of whole wheat flour and added vitamins and minerals, also contain high fructose corn syrup, enriched flour, sugar and molasses. I guess you could say it is an updated version of a cookie.
While the taste is phenomenal along with decent nutrition and a low price, there is no fiber, 24 grams of fat per bag (the bag seems small but does hold 7 adult servings). I would definitely buy these again, but I will be making my own portion-controlled baggies.
