Their prizes the last decade or so were not even worth opening. An App is a good concept to replace it anyway.

Because it was the prizes that was killing the company...

They have not had good prizes since the 60 and 70s.

Step right up, get your pre ban cracker jacks!

Back in 1993 I gave my present wife a box of Cracker Jacks with a Diamond Ring in it for a prize. We've been married since October 1994.


There is a pic somewhere, find it yourself.

That is all they have been for years.

I thought they stopped a couple years back.

Cracker Jack sucks dick.

Toffee Crunch 'n Munch or eat shit. The prize you receive is deliciousness.
Link Posted: 4/22/2016 8:13:57 PM EST
Prizes were neat when I was a kid. Haven't had the stuff since the early '80s.
Link Posted: 4/22/2016 8:16:39 PM EST
Haven't seen decent toy prizes in CJ for long time.

I've developed a liking for Munch and Crunch caramel coated popcorn lately. Bigger box of goodness and don't miss the shitty prize.

Yep. There ain't shit in that box anymore worth more than a nickle.

Actually, I bet the box costs more. I used to have to saw those things open with a steak knife.
Link Posted: 4/22/2016 8:18:54 PM EST
cracker jacks haven't had "prizes" in years. fuck them, and sugary cereal too.
Link Posted: 4/22/2016 8:19:57 PM EST
I kinda thought they already did.

God do I remember getting excited when I would get the tattoo prize in cracker jacks - that was hitting the jack pot (no, I did not grow up to become an inky).

The last crackerjack box I had only came with 2 peanuts
Link Posted: 4/22/2016 8:25:30 PM EST
I hardly count fucking stickers as prizes. As far as I'm concerned, Cracker Jack's haven't had prizes since the mid 90's.
Link Posted: 4/22/2016 8:27:04 PM EST
I didn't it was still made.

loved the magnifying glass
course that was 57 yrs ago so things have probably changed some....

I haven't had Cracker Jack in over 25 years
Link Posted: 4/22/2016 8:29:14 PM EST
the last good prizes was maybe 1985 with tatoos, lenticular pics, little marble games and plastic rings. I haven't seen anything remotely interesting in those boxes in 30 years. why they can't charge another nickel for those toys I have no idea.
Company is probably getting sued because junior can barely breathe standing up let alone discriminate between popcorn and a toy surprise.

Link Posted: 4/22/2016 8:34:24 PM EST
I didn't even know that snack still existed.
Loved/hated it as a kid.

Sadly, even fresh Cracker Jack's suck anymore

Well, if they want to get rid of the Redskins they better get rid of Cracker Jack.

That is why I don't buy them any more. The box should be about 25% peanuts.
Link Posted: 4/22/2016 9:11:07 PM EST
GOOD...
With the money that're saving, they can put peanuts back in.

I miss Screaming Yellow Zonkers. That was a great candy popcorn. And yes crackerjack prizes have sucked since the 70's

Cracker Jack seems like the name of a character from Tom Sawyer.

So much for their sixties jingle, "Caramel coated popcorn, peanuts and a prize, that's what you get in Cracker Jack!"
Link Posted: 4/23/2016 8:40:57 AM EST
They should also market a 75% peanut, 25% popcorn Cracker Jack. See if that sells.

As noted above, there are very few peanuts in them when I last had one years ago. I like the peanuts more than the popcorn.
