Where Did Animal Biscuits Originate From?

Did you know that these sweet biscuit-shaped animals originated from England in the mid 1800s? They became so popular that even America attempted their own ‘animal biscuit’ recipe. Today, there are over 40 million packages of animal biscuits sold worldwide, and it even has its own dedicated holiday on April 18 – National Animal Cracker Day.

With so many manufacturers of these animal cookies, Bahlsen Zoo Biscuits takes the cake as a fan favourite. This biscuit-producing family enterprise has been baking biscuits for over 125 years. In 1889, Herman Bahlsen first established his cakes & biscuit factory in Germany. Bahlsen even received the gold medal at the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair for being able to capture ‘the fine taste of butter’. For generations, Bahlsen continues to deliver on this award-winning taste and high quality of cookies, making them Germany’s #1 biscuit manufacturer today.

Germany’s Most Popular Biscuits 125 Years Later

Bahlsen has been baking biscuits 365 days a year for the past 125 years, and have kept to their traditional recipe for consistent taste & quality. Each Bahlsen biscuit is baked to perfection using only the finest ingredients, and contains no artificial flavouring, colouring or preservatives with zero use of hydrogenated fat.

These tasty biscuits have been associated with the Bahlsen name for its unmistakeable buttery fragrance and consistently high quality over generations. Bahlsen continues with this brand promise even today, with every pack of biscuit that is freshly baked & shipped in from Germany.

 

TRIVIA: HOW DO YOU EAT YOUR ANIMAL CRACKER?
