Buy me some peanuts and...... Crunch 'n Munch????

Effing Yankees....



Buy me some peanuts and Crunch 'n Munch; I don't care if I, er ... spoil my lunch?

"Take Me Out to the Ball Game" might not have quite the same ring at Yankee Stadium, now that the ballpark is bagging Cracker Jack in favor of a competing caramel popcorn.

Cracker Jack has been part of baseball for more than a century and was immortalized in the sport's own anthem, which is played during the seventh-inning stretch at ballparks nationwide.

Yankees spokesman Jason Zillo said Wednesday that the change was made in part because Crunch 'n Munch tastes better. The stadium's director of hospitality, David Bernstein, told The New York Times the move was prompted by Cracker Jack's decision to make only bags, not boxes, of its snack.

Bernstein did not rule out switching back to Cracker Jack, and Charles Nicolas, a spokesman for Cracker Jack's parent company, Frito Lay, hopes that happens.

"Baseball historians would say Cracker Jack and the Yankees belong together," Nicolas said.

Cracker Jacks don't deserve it for the ever decreasing quality of prizes they offer.

I think Crack Jack and boxes (not bags) belong together.

Somehow, this is Bud Selig's fault.

Actually I prefer Crunch & Munch myself.

Not surprised.

(Eating Crunch 'n Munch Buttery Toffee flavor as I type this)

I personally like it way better than Cracker Jack nowadays. Mostly because you can get Cracker Jack mostly in caramel flavor only.
