Cracker Jacks have been around for a long time. I mean, we sing about them every time we are at a baseball game and singing "Take Me Out to the Ball Game."
However, it seems that there may be a change to both the baseball snack as well as the song.
Cracker Jacks will still be around, however Cracker Jill will be introduced to the world and ball games.
According to the Washington Post, Frito-Lay North America the owner of Cracker Jack is reimagining the snack to celebrate women in sports with Cracker Jill.
Cracker Jill will be a special edition snack and will have five different representations of the character.
Washington Post states that the bags will be available across the nation's ballparks. However, if you are not planning on going to a game this year, you can still get a bag.
According to Fox 8 News, if you choose to donate five dollars to the Women’s Sports Foundation, you will be able to get a bag of Cracker Jill.
The New York Post states that there is even a new adaption to the classic "Take Me Out to the Ballgame." Former Fifth Harmony singer, Normani was chosen to sing the new version of the 1908 song.
New York Post states that the company, Frito-Lay North America, will also be donating $200,000 to the nonprofit Women’s Sports Foundation.
Next time you go to Fenway Park to catch a Boston Red Sox game, you may see this new snack to eat as well as hear a new song during the seventh-inning stretch, so you may want to start learning the lyrics.
