Organic Animal Crackers (Kirkland)
$10 buys you a super-size cannister (4 lbs worth) of organic animal crackers. These are almost worth the price of the costco membership alone. I kid you not. These are delicious and addictive. Two things that should not be in my vocabulary especially since they're made with wheat -- but it's organic wheat so that makes it all good, right? Fortunatley I'm only committed to reducing my total wheat intake not totally eliminating it so I'll indulge occasionally. These would be delicious whirled into crumbs for pie crusts and other such treats.They are a big hit with my 3 year old grandson and so far everyone else who has tried them too.
The ingredients listed would make it seem they are vegan yet what confused me was the word dairy on the front of the cannister. I don't know if it's an error or they're just covering themselves because the equipment they process these on are not dedicated dairy-free. In any case neither milk nor eggs are listed as one of the main ingredients and they're not super high in sugar either. It's so nice to see more organic, economical and fairly healthy treats for our little people being incoporated into mainstream shopping outlets. I say keep them coming - especially if they're going to be as tasty as these cute little crackers.
