There are several treats that I remember fondly from my childhood….Big League Chew, Atomic Fireballs, Bottle Caps, Now & Later’s and Cracker Jack snacks.
One of the things I loved best about Cracker Jack snacks as a kid was the PRIZE! I still remember the anticipation---opening the box and dumping out the contents to find the prize before devouring the popcorn. Jayson says that as a kid, he would almost always choose Cracker Jack snacks over other snacks purely because of the prize.
One of my favorite “Cracker Jack” memories is my uncle’s legendary marriage proposal. My uncle carefully opened a box of Cracker Jack snacks, put the diamond ring inside and glued the box back together. Boy was my aunt was surprised to find a ring instead of a sticker or tattoo!
Now Cracker Jack Snacks is making a comeback and we were lucky enough to sample the new and improved Cracker Jack snacks. They now have three flavors: Original (with more peanuts), Kettle Corn, and Butter Toffee. The family sampled all three, and it was a tough call, but I think Kettle Corn was our favorite, with Butter Toffee a close second. I found myself grabbing a handful every time I went to the pantry. And the best part about the new Cracker Jack snacks….they still come with a prize!
