Have you ever wondered why, in a society that is so concerned with not eating meat e.g. vegetarian or vegan, we have so many snack foods and candies made in animal shapes. There are teddy grahams, animals crackers, bunny crackers, swedish fish, gummy bears and gummy worms. In a few weeks children’s Easter baskets will be filled with chocolate bunnies and peeps. Then an all time favorite of many, Gold Fish with the slogan “The snack the smiles back…until you bit their heads off.”

This is in no way a bash for being vegetarian or of these delicious snacks. I was just wondering.
