Fun prize inside! I have no idea what the prize is, but I think it’s safe to say it was made in China. (Spotted by Eric at Walmart.)

  1. The cracker jack is not a bad idea. Wonder why the jack’d line doesn’t have a prize while the popcorn variety has a prize. I got the feeling the prize is just simply temporary tattoo or a cheap picture flip-o-gram

  2. The last cool prize I remember getting from a box of cracker jacks was this little plastic periscope. It was cool compared to the pieces of paper they give out now. Must have been 20+ years ago.

  3. I’m not sure watermelon and dairy sounds like a good combination to me.

    The Cracker Jack popcorn I would try. After all, now that Quaker is calling their mini rice cakes ‘popped rice snacks’, the whole what is popcorn and what is chip/cookie substitute is blurred.

  4. I’m willing to bet those Ghirardelli squares taste very similar to the egg nog ones since the egg nog ones were basically just cinnamony white chocolate. Deff an item to look for next trip to the candy aisle.

    1. Oh, Megan, I hope you’re right. Those Egg Nog chocolates are the best. If Ghirardelli makes something close to them year round with a different name now… Oh wow… Yep, you won’t be the only one looking for them. I doubt they’ll have that touch of nutmeg the nog ones do, though.

  5. The cheeseburger mac was not so good. The white cheddar & bacon mac was definitely a lot better but I cant see myself buying it again.
