This came out around 1984. I can remember eating it and watching the videos from "Purple Rain" that summer. Very good.

I remember eating this cereal as a kid. This was the best cereal ever made. Why did they take this cereal away? I wish they can bring it back, i would buy it all the time.

I thought I was imagining the fact that I used to eat cracker jack cereal. Noone else remembered it. I'm glad other people are talking about it. It was the best cereal. I wish they would bring it back!

I was just talking about this cereal to my wife last night, and she didn't remember this being around in the 80s. I LOVED this cereal, and I'm a cereal fiend to this day! :) The greatest cereal ever. I would love for them to bring it back.

I am so glad that there are others in this universe that remembers this great cereal. My husband and friends probaly think that I made it up because they have never heard of it. If I can just chime in with evryone else, THIS IS THE BEST CEREAL EVER MADE!!! The closest thing that I have had to this great cereal is Reese Puffs and it hardly compares.

Yes, don't all the prizes now come in some form of a stiff paper card? Not really so much "toys" as "cheap paper gimmick." :(

I LOVED this cereal!!!!! I think a close flavor I have found is the waffle crisp and french toast crunch...

Never had a chance to try it but was watching the movie Real Genius and the pantry in their dorm has a box of this cereal so I had to Google it.

This came out around the same time as Cinnamon Toast Crunch. I was so mad that the Cinnamon cereal stayed and the Cracker Jack Cereal left. WHY!!!!

OMG OMG OMG.. I was sooo little when this came out and I used to beg and scream at the store for my mother to buy this! This has to be one of my favorite all time cereals ever! When I was little, each shopping trip my brother and I would take turns picking a cereal, he would never pick Cracker Jack, I always did and he would always pick something lame, his turn!!! I MISS THIS!!!!!! I WANT SOME NOW! Why do they take the cereals I love? IT took me years to find another good cereal. I started to love Oreo O's and low and behold, they take it off! WHY, WHY, WHY!!! Ok.. end Rant! But bring em' both back! K-Thanks!

This was the best cereal ever, why did they stop making it and if they bring it back it wont taste the same, just like they did smurf cereal(when the movie came out) it didnt taste the same. I miss Craker Jack cereal...still remember how it taste no other cereal can compare that caramel buttery taste, yum yum yum!!!

I remember eating this cereal during the hot summer of 1984 or 1985. My mother bought several boxes of it over the span of several months for my little brother and all of a sudden...it was just gone. This cereal, along with S'Mores Crunch, was the greatest ever made. I remember the taste being something between Cap'n Crunch and Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Just addicting.

I have an ad with a coupon for 25 cents off for Cracker Jack Cereal with NO EXPIRATION date. Any suggestions what it might be worth to anyone - maybe a collector??
