Here is a quick workplace truth: some time after lunch and before it's time to go, I am somehow hungry. If I were still working at an office job, I would have hit the vending machine. However, where I currently work there is no such thing anywhere near me. For better or worse. So that has left me with a plethora of snacks in my desk drawer to avoid spending money at the local stores.
Taste and review
And to be fair, Trader Joe's has been more than generous with snack foods since the start of 2019. It seems the majority of the items I've tried this year would fall into the snack category. So naturally, this item fell into my cart.
And even at work there are some food items that seem to have universal appeal: animal crackers. I know very few people who dislike the stuff. They are sweet, but not too sweet. They have good flavor and for the most part, they are just something to nosh on.
So at 110 calories a bag, it's better than grabbing a chocolate bar. It hits a lot of notes. It's a touch sweet, salty, buttery and tastes similar to honey grahams.
Even if your open two bags, it wouldn't be too bad for you either. Now, these obviously aren't vegan or gluten-free, but there have been a lot of those items hitting the shelves already.
For $2.99 they're not a bad item, but one of many new snacks that I may or may not pick up again.
