    unless it goes to big breasted coed blonde lesbian ass fingering porn, this sucks. Agreed?

    Cracker Jack's Prize In The Box Will Now Be Digitized
    [​IMG]i
    What do you get in Cracker Jack? A QR code, apparently.

    The "Prize Inside" will no longer actually be inside the box, Frito-Lay has announced. Like so many other aspects of our lives, the prize will be digitized.

    Download an app, scan a sticker inside the Cracker Jack box and access "baseball-inspired mobile digital experiences," the company said, launching the change ahead of baseball season. The packaging and logo will also be "contemporized."

    On the Cracker Jack Facebook page, commenters were not impressed:

    "An app is not a prize," one quipped.

    "The backbone of Cracker Jack has always been a young child's treasure hunt......SHAME ON YOU," another proclaimed.

    "Wow. In all my nearly 56 years on this planet, I have never been so disappointed in a product," said one woman.

    Yet another wrote, simply: "Forget you."

    A Facebook community with more than 1,000 likes is calling on Frito-Lay to "Put the PRIZE back in Cracker Jack."

    What marketing wizard came up with this idea? "guys, we sell semi-stale popcorn and peanuts to kids who beg for it to get the stupid 10c toy inside. What say we save 9c a box and give them a digital code instead?"

    Have they been anything of value in the last 20 years. We just have to face facts that the days of toy cars in cereal are a thing of the past.
