Mom Central Canada hooked us up with a box of Dare Bear Paws Crackers to try out. Bear Paws are part of Dare’s “Peanut Free” foods program, which means they are manufactured in a nut/peanut free facility. They are also low in saturated fat, are made with real old cheddar cheese, and contain no artificial flavours.
They’re pretty yummy. Cheesy, but not overpoweringly so. My three year old really enjoyed them. She asks for them regularly. And also, oddly enough, she started drawing bear paws everywhere. Yesterday she produced a doodle board covered in little bear paw shapes and informed me it was a message from her tummy. Seriously. Prior to this I thought she had a problem with her Goldfish addiction… yet she’s never felt the need to create a fish themed artistic homage to snack time.
Ok, to be honest for me it’s a toss up between these and those aquatic themed crackers. I would probably buy whichever of the two was cheaper, or was on sale. However, if my daughter had her dithers she’d go with Bear Paws. Along with the Cheddar Cheese flavour, there are also “Original” and Vegetable Bear Paws. I am eager to try the vegetable flavour out, and will probably pick those up next shopping trip. Right now, we’re lucky that peanut allergies aren’t a concern. However, once she starts kindergarten “certified peanut free” will be a much bigger deal. Overall, I’d say give ’em a try. My daughter’s crazy about them, maybe your kid will be too.
