I was left very disappointed by my
snack last night. Oh it tasted just fine.
What got me was the sticker shock.
Don't get me wrong. The price
was reasonable. Still, it was the
sticker shock that got me. I
mentioned this back around
Halloween/ But it's time we really
got into it!
You see my snack was a box of
Cracker Jack. Heck you remember
those famous treats. They're even
part of the 'Baseball Anthem!"
They've been around since 1896.
In 1912 the company started to include
a prize in every box.
It always seemed like a great deal
to me. Molasses flavored caramel
coated popcorn. Some peanuts. And
And the prizes were kind of neat.
Not big. But neat. Maybe a little
plastic airplane. Or a flute. Maybe
a decoder ring or something like that.
But yesterday when I opened
my box all I found was a little
sticker. I'm think you're suppose to
use them to redeem a game or
something from the company. It was
pure sticker shock!
Maybe I can find some really
old boxes somewhere. I know the
popcorn would be stale. But the
prizes would be neat! Hope I get a
decoder ring..and that all your
NEWS is good!
