Cracker Jacks

Hard to believe that 50 years later they are still around. The prizes inside may have gotten cheaper but they're still as tasty.

Nice yummy photo of nostalgia-food. Do they still come in the old product box? If so, that would make a nice shot too. Nostalgia sells! (And they've been around more than 50, I can personally vouch for that as a sworn eyewitness).

These were in a plastic snack bag with a cheap paper "toy surprise". :(

As for age, I can only testify to what I know. I'm sure the history goes far older than the both of us. ;)

Me too, I will reach 3/4 of a century next week. I loved them when a kid, But think I probably loved getting the surprise toy more though. Per WIkipedia they were tradmarked in 1896 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cracker_Jack).

Thank you. I felt it added that little extra 'something'. It was surprisingly easy to make. Gotta love YouTube! :clap:
