Ever since I bit into my first animal cracker I fell in love (although I never understood why they were called crackers when they tasted like cookies). However, the majority of animal crackers contain some type of partially hydrogenated oil, which I am doing my best to avoid. Therefore, when I found Barbara's Snackimals Vanilla Animal Cookies, the child in me snatched them right up. Snackimals are made with the highest quality natural and organic ingredients and contain none of the artificial flavors, colors, preservatives or trans fats found in old-fashioned animal cookies.
First off, these are definitely cookies and not crackers. They are flatter than the average animal 'cracker' and therefore, crispier and less flaky. The taste is not over-the-top stellar, but does represent the wholesome ingredients that go into these crunchy little guys. To improve upon the taste I would prefer a slightly sweeter cookie and personally, I am not sure if I thoroughly enjoy the vanilla flavor which is more of a light aftertaste.
