Throwback Thursday - Cracker Jack Prizes

Did you love Cracker Jacks as a kid?  I did -- the caramel corn, the peanuts -- one of my favorite treats!  Most of all, of course, I loved the prizes in each box.  I remember they came in a paper packet and you got to tear the packet open to see what was inside.   
My favorite prize was always the tiny little dollhouse-size books.   How about you?  What Cracker Jack prizes do you remember?  And which ones were your favorites?  I'd love to hear from you in the comments!

I forgot all about Cracker Jacks and the prizes. Yum. I always remember loving it, though. I honestly can't remember any of the prizes.

I never got anything in the cracker jack box except stickers-so I always thought that was the only thing that came in them!

Great throwback!! I don't really remember my favorite prize, but I still buy a box from time to time and always seem to get baseball stickers. I love it. lol

I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't remember the prizes. But I DO remember always being disappointed in whatever I received. I usually gave the Cracker Jacks to my dad to eat. He loved them...especially the peanuts.

I miss the actual prizes - they just got lamer as time went on to just the stickers!

Oh my! Cracker Jacks! This definitely takes me back to my younger years, we were always so excited about what was at the bottom of that little box.

I loved Cracker Jacks!!! Haha I was honestly too young to remember the prizes though ):

I'd forgotten all about these! I don't really remember the prizes very well. I think I remember getting stickers? Now I'm craving some! (and I never really loved it all that much taste-wise, but I still loved getting them!)

I don't remember eating these back in India but I sure remember other such goodies that always had stickers, toys etc to tempt us kids :)I am @ http://denimsanddresses.com/

Thanks, y'all! I appreciate the comments. I haven't had Cracker Jacks in a while and didn't realize the prizes are now stickers. That's not much fun! I loved the little plastic trinkets and tiny books from my childhood years. :-)
