Florida's Foreverly Shores
The 'child' in me bought three boxes of Cracker Jacks this weekend and delighted in reliving the childhood pleasure of searching for the Toy Surprise !
*Read on to hear what my Toy Surprises were.
Yeah, me too ! Always a great memory.
I got plumb tickled to pieces at myself over this delight ! *Read on ...
Thank you, dahlin'
Oh ! I wanted a top !
A Cracker Jack delight for sure.
NO ! Buy them both a box TODAY !
I like to scrunch my hand down in the box and feel for the Surprise ! I 'anticipate' until I'm through eating them.
I ate the WHOLE THING !
I NEVER went through the bottom first !
Box 1 ... a miniature Magnifying Glass !
Box 2 ... a butterfly transfer Tatoo !
BOX 3 ... JUST FOR YOU, BALLADEER !
An honest to goodness WHISTLE !
*The one shown is a 1930's whistle ...
made of wood and with frets ...
mine was PLASTIC ... oh, well .. it WORKS !
*And did you know that the Toy Surprise was called - lagniappe (lan yap'): n. 1. Chiefly Southern Louisiana and Southeast Texas, a small gift given with a purchase to a customer, by way of compliment or for good measure, bonus.
Thanks to you all for enjoying this little treat with me. TRUTH .. who's buying some this week ?
