I bought a box of "Animals Crackers" today; 1st time in decades probably.



The following defects {you can call 'em "changes/improvements" if you're PC inclined} were noted:


The box no longer has 4 simulated wheels @ its corners.

The box no longer has a string handle. {It has a fold-up cardboard handle on top.}

The 5 animals on the side of the box are no longer behind cage bars. {They are depicted in an African savanna setting.} <<{What is a circus railway car, Grandpa?}>>

The 5 animals depicted on the side of the box are [left to right]: zebra, elephant lion, giraffe & gorilla.

The 5 crackers depicted on the top of the box are [left to right]: lion, seal, hippopotamus, koala & elephant. {for the uninformed, there are NO koalas in Africa}

The crackers are baked by NABISCO which claims: "NEW LOOK, Same Great Taste". The box says NABISCO is now a division of "Mondelez Global LLC"!
