Food Review: Trader Joe’s Animal Crackers

Tub of Fun Found in Trader Joe's Animal Crackers 

If you are like me, every time I see a box of animal crackers, I relive my childhood years of drooling over a box decorated as if it is a red circus boxcar filled with exotic animals.   My favorite cookie/cracker was the elephant.  Therefore, when I noticed a tub--yes an entire tub--of animal cookies on a Trader Joe’s shelf, I squealed like a little girl and promptly tossed one in my cart.

As a fan of simple English style cookies, Trader Joe’s Organic Animal Crackers are a perfect fit for me.  They are crunchy, light, great with hot beverages and shaped like animals.  What could be better?  Right? 

The real surprise with these cookies is that these are not your typical guilty-pleasure snacks.  Oh no.  These puppies—or should I say camels--are low in fat and sodium, vegan, organic and only 120 for 17 delicious cookies!  There are even tigers in the tub.  It just gets more and more exciting as I eat my way through an entire tub in no time.  Luckily, these babies are reasonably priced at $3.49 for roughly 255 cookies.  I guess it’s time for another Trader Joe’s run! 

What is your favorite Trader Joe’s product??  


  1. I hope they open a nice Trader Joe's by me! The closest one (which wasn't very close) recently closed down after the roof collapsed! I don't think they have plans to reopen. But before that happened, I loved their cookie butter spread!

    1. I hope they reopen or another one closer to you is built. It is a fun store. I always think of visiting Trader Joe's as an adventure.

      These little cookies are amazing dipped in the cookie butter spread :) Good call.
