Dannon's Danimals yogurt products were designed with kids in mind. The three products -- Danimals Crush Cups, Danimals Smoothies and Danimals Coolision -- require no utensils, making them easy for kids to eat with lunch or for a snack. All three come in a variety of flavors, and ingredient lists for each vary only in the flavorings and colorings.
