Cracker Jack

Cracker jack
In 1893 a sweet caramel and molasses coated popcorn was served at Chicago's first world fair and it's popularity grew quickly. It wasn't known by it's current name until 1896 when a salesman, tasting the treat for the first time said "That's a cracker jack!" The name stuck and in 1912 the Cracker Jack Company started adding a toy surprise.The Cracker Jack slogan ...the more you eat, the more you want...comes from the use of molasses, butter and spanish peanuts.

Sailor is "Sailor Jack" and his dog is B-i-n-g-o. (like the song) The mascots were trademarked in 1919. A real dog named Russell inspired Bingo's image on the Cracker Jack box.
In 1896, Rueckheim offered a salesman a box of Cracker Jack. The salesman declared, "That's a cracker jack"! (In 1896, "cracker jack" was the slang terminology for what we would call "awesome".)
Cracker Jack was 100 years old in 1993
