Cracker Jack is a brand of snack food consisting of molasses-flavored,
caramel-coated popcorn and peanuts, well known for being packaged
with a
prize of trivial value inside. The Cracker Jack name and slogan,
"The More You Eat The More You Want", were
registered in 1896. Some
food historians consider it the first junk food.
