Cracker Jack

Introduced in 1893 and immortalized in the classic baseball song "Take Me Out to the Ball Game," Cracker Jack became one of the most popular snack foods ever. On Morning Edition NPR's Susan Feeney has the story of the "candy-coated popcorn, peanuts and a prize" as part of the Present at the Creation series.
