Animals Crackers will have a new look to start the school year.

According to a report filed by Metro Source News:

The packaging of Barnum's Animals from Nabisco has depicted the circus animals inside as behind bars for decades, but no longer.  The change comes after a campaign from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals aimed at Nabisco and its parent company, Mondelez International, highlighting the brutal conditions some circuses employ to get their animals to perform tricks.

Animal Crackers are one of the most popular snacks for kids. At least they are in our home. Goldfish run a close second place.

Did you know, there have been at least 50 different types of animals in animal crackers since they were first introduced? According Mobile-Cuisine.com:

  • The current crackers are tiger, cougar, camel, rhinoceros, kangaroo, hippopotamus, bison, lion, hyena, zebra, elephant, sheep, bear, gorilla, monkey, seal and giraffe.
