Cracker Jack has a history as rich as its caramel coating and as nutty as its peanuts. The possible first American junk food was the dream of an immigrant that went from the World’s Fair to ball games across the United States in a matter of years.
Adults enjoyed the snack for its sweetness and crunch, children loved it for the cool prizes and baseball cards inside those iconic Cracker Jack boxes.
