I am honestly appalled:
Cracker Jack has been putting toy prizes in its boxes of caramel coated goodness for 125 years.
But not anymore.
Frito-Lay, the purveyor of said goodness, is going to replace the toy with stickers containing digital codes that’ll get customers into baseball inspired games they can play on their phones.
I get progress and everything, and I love my phone, but this is a step too far.
