Annie's Totally Natural White Cheddar Bunnies Review

Annie's Totally Natural White Cheddar BunniesI'm sure you have heard of/ eaten Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Snack Crackers (if you haven't read our review) - they have reigned as King of animal shaped crackers for quite a while. But it looks like the Bunnies (specifically Annie's Totally Natural White Cheddar Bunnies) got jealous and decided to challenge them for the kingdom. Will they succeed?

Annie's Bunnies gave it a good try, but ultimately, they fell short.
The Good.
* The appearance was on point with and I was more than pleased by the off-white, lightly toasted bunnies awaiting my consumption.
* These bunnies are the perfect thickness, with a small hollow center which seems to be the ideal composition to achieve optimum crunchiness. Translation: crunchy!

The Bad.
* Where is the flavor? They may be crunchy, but they are totally bland with only a slight hint of white cheddar - actually more of an after-taste and not really even a strong one. Each cracker is dusted with a light coating of flavored powder, so perhaps more powder would have offered more flavor?! I don't know what they need to do, but they won't be taking over from the Goldfish any time soon.

While they weren't exactly disastrous in their lack of flavor, they certainly do not tempt me into debasing my healthy lifestyle (I have always considered crackers one of my major downfalls that leave me wanting to eat the entire box). So, for me, The Winner, and still King of the animal-shaped cracker universe is Pepperidge Farm Whole Grain Cheddar Goldfish Crackers.

One serving of Annie's Totally Natural White Cheddar Bunnies is 55 crackers which contributes 140 calories, 6 grams of total fat (9% of the RDA), 1 gram of saturated fat (5% of the RDA), 7% of the RDA for sodium (160 mg), 3 grams of protein, 1 gram of sugar and less than 1 gram of fiber.

These baked crackers are made with real cheese and the absence of hydrogenated oils and artificial flavors (I resisted the urge to say absence of "any" flavor). I paid $2.00 for a a 7.5 ounce box on sale (originally $2.99), but this probably won't make it to my permanent grocery list. They are a little less salty than Pepperidge Farm (Whole Grain) Goldfish Crackers (which has 10% of the RDA), but not much different nutritionally.

As I said before, the Goldfish are still champs in my book, but Bunnies or Goldfish - which do you prefer?
