“What is a duck’s favorite snack?"/"Quackers.”

A riddle about ducks and crackers is:

Q: What is a duck’s favorite snack?
A: Quackers (quack + crackers).


“Quacker Oats” has been cited in print since at least 1978, and “quacker"/"cracker" riddles have been printed in newspapers since at least 1982 and 1993. The joke has been printed on an image.

“What does a duck eat for breakfast?"/"Quacker Oats” is another duck “quacker” riddle.
