Animal Cracker trivia

OK, this one should take you back to your childhood, or even your adulthood if you have children or grandchildren. I posted it in the humor section, and although it's factual, it's kjnda funny that many people (moi included) did not know the answer to the following question that dates back to 1902. Hopefully, you will get a smile out of it.

You may have to google the answer, and I ask that once you find out (if you don't know really) to not post it here., but can comment if you did know the answer without looking. I will follow up later with a lot more of the true history behind it. It is some good campfire trivia to impress your fellow campers with and maybe even treat them to a box of..

Why do the boxes of Nabisco animal crackers have strings on them?

HINT: Contrary to what you may have grew up believing, or using the string for...it is not intended to be a carrying strap.

I knew what it was for without looking, but looked it up anyway.

What does that say about how old I am???

I don't remember ever using it for it's intended purpose, but I bet my mother has.
