It’s National Animal Cracker Day! Animal crackers were actually a British concoction. In the 1870s, these tasty treats were imported into the US. With their growing popularity, different cookie manufacturers began producing the bite size morsels in 1902. Perhaps the most recognizable animal cracker brand is the Barnum’s Animals. I absolutely loved these little boxes when I was a kid. Apparently, there are over 37 different animals that can possibly fill up your little red box.
In honor of National Animal Cracker Day, I challenge you to show your support. If you are feeling brave, or just plain boozy, reach inside an animal cracker box without looking. Pull out an animal cracker. Get that as your next tatt. I am totally kidding by the way, but I do know someone that now has a tiger animal cracker on the side of his abdomen. Just putting it out there. Milk anyone?
