FAQs

Why are there holes in the Animal Crackers?
The holes in the Animal Crackers are called "dockers." The holes are there to let some of the air out of the crackers and reduce the rising process. This helps retain the animal cracker shape.

What is the difference between a cookie and a cracker?
Stauffer's Animal Crackers have less sugar and shortening than cookies. Animal Cookies, another Stauffer's product line, have slightly less flour than animal crackers. Animal crackers have a layered dough, which gives the crackers a crunchy and delicate texture. Break an animal cracker in half and you will see layers.
