Zoo Doria Animal Biscuits

Zoo Doria animal shaped biscuits is a cute product that comes in an adorable packaging. I saw these last week at my local store where they sell Italian products. If I had bought some for myself they wouldn't have lasted long, so I left them at the store. But I couldn't stop thinking about the package design and started to search online (luckily I remembered the brand name). I found them here. I love the owl and the turtle! You?
