Can You Believe Cracker Jack Have Been Around For 120 Years? + A GIVEAWAY

I cannot even believe how long Cracker Jack has been around.  I remember the square box, the toy surprises and the commercial.

"Whatdya you call a kid who can dive like that? You call that kid a cracker jack. And whatdya call a kid that gives the ball a whack? You call that kid a cracker jack. And whatdaya call a snack with the secret toy surprise in the pack, peanut and popcorn that make your lips smack? It's carmel coated Cracker Jacks." 


With Cracker Jacks we thought we could do anything and the prizes. How fun. I used to love getting a ring and prayed for one each box of Cracker Jacks I ate.  My friends remember fighting with their brothers or sisters for that prize because most families only got one box. 

After 120 years Cracker Jack has modernize while keeping the nostalgia of the past for today's families. The new flavors include Cracker Jack Kettle Corn and Cracker Jack Butter Toffee Popcorn to which I ate an entire bag last night while reading in bed (gross but true). The Original Cracker Jack have more peanuts and better prizes but that depends on who you ask. I LOVED MY RINGS although there are some special codes that you can use with special offers online.

There is even a FREE Cracker Jack app for iPhone, iPad and Ipod and all Android devices at www.crackerjackapp.com where you can play Baseball and Pinball.

My kids and I received the kind of box that makes Blogger kids smile and rejoice that Mommy is a blogger. When I posted exactly that with the picture on Facebook everyone replied, "yum" or "I love Cracker Jack".

It is a snack from our past that we remember fondly and love. I was happy to share with my children. Unfortunately for them but fortunately for me, the kids can't eat the original because they are allergic to peanuts and Goddess was disappointed but she loved the Kettle Corn. I even sent a few bags to school for her end of year class party and the kids were super excited as many of them had never even heard of Cracker Jack. 

Now, I am noticing the bags of the original everywhere. Here they are at CVS.


They are still delicious and I forgot how much I missed that little guy with the hat and least we forget the prize!!!

 

Cracker Jack is offering one of my lucky readers a chance to win 6 bags of the popcorn featuring the three flavors I mentioned above.
