Cracker Jack...

Not Cracker JackS, just the singular.  I always thought it was plural, but I guess not.  Or, maybe they changed the name because it's not the same.  It came in a Mylar bag, not a box.  The popcorn tastes the same, but with less molasses-y coating on it.  See where it says "Caramel Coated Popcorn & Peanuts"?  Frito-Lay must have studied Van Camps Pork 'n Beans to determine how many peanuts to include because I have only seen two so far in a relatively large bag.  The "toy" is in a whole 'nother realm of lame.  It's a tiny paper picture of George Washington and a brief history of his life.
 Whatever happened to the cute, creative little plastic bits of joy that I knew as a child?

 I feel violated...
