I remember the iced ones from my childhood...the elephant and lion were always my favorites, and I would save those to the last to eat.  Thanks for a fun post and great memories, Linda!

That was a nice share Ron!  I never had the iced ones but I still like animal crackers.

Linda - I had no idea that Barnum's Animal Crackers have used 37 different animals over the 113 years they have now been in business.

I buy Animal Crackers at BJ's Wholesale Club.  They come in 45 oz containers.  They taste just like I remember them as a child.  I give them to my dog as a treat (with the Vet's approval) and can treat myself with them as well.  I have no idea how many different animals are in the assortment.

I know what container you are talking about John.  I buy it too and share with my dogs.  Amazing how a simple old cookie is still a favorite of most.  Thanks for your feedback.
