Nothing says spring-time like baseball. And nothing says baseball like Cracker Jacks. There's no denying it, a trip to the stadium would not be complete without it. That salty-sweet combination has been pleasing baseball goers and snackers alike since 1896, which means Crackers Jacks are almost 120 years old!
This famed combination of molasses-flavored candy-coated popcorn and peanuts got its name thanks to one patron who exclaimed, "That's a crackerjack!" after tasting the candy concontion. Back in the day, that was slang for, "excellent quality." Clearly, this talented taster knew what he was talking about, since this excellent quality candy has been a crowd pleaser ever since.
