These bunny-shaped pretzels and crackers sure appeals to my children. They are crunchy, cheesy and lightly seasoned. What I like most about these snacks is that ingredients are organic and natural. No artificial flavors or synthetic preservatives, and made with sea salt, yummy!
This snack is a good alternative to Goldfish and Cheez-its.
In all, this is a good snack. I still give this snack a thumbs up, but keeping in mind servings specially for younger children.
