This is the issue, Crackerjacks and the lack of, at a AA league ball park.


Good lord, it's mostly a NON issue, because truly, how many people are going to miss the crackerjacks at a minor league ball park? Oh wait, my mistake...TWO minor league ball parks. THIS is a piddly thing.

I had to give a man my 'really????' look when he asked that we get rid of all of our flowering plants because he son is allergic to bee stings. By the way, we were in the neighborhood first so he knew what our yard looked like!

The question is if we are creating these food allergies because of our overreaction? From this link (https://www.todaysdietitian.com/newa...50113p12.shtml) I quote: "In fact, recent research by DuToit and colleagues indicates that an earlier introduction to peanuts may provide protection against the development of a peanut allergy." They do not say to overdose our kids with peanuts; but gradual introduction over time could help avoid problems later in life. There are other studies that suggest only about 25% of our children can outgrow peanut allergies. Perhaps it all depends on the exposure or individual?

I think a business should be free to do whatever they want to do. If it means they alienate peanut eaters, its their call. Likewise if they choose to serve peanuts and they alienate nut allergy fans, so be it. I could care less. Peanuts have never been a determinant factor for me in my sports viewing choices, but if it is for you, vote with your dollars.

I was thinking overly offended, over sensitive, overly wussy over a ballpark not carrying Cracker Jacks anymore.

But this Crackerjacks issue (and I admit that it is a piddly thing) is also a very small part of a much larger issue, and that larger issue is what is also being discussed on this thread. (Which is nothing unusual for C-D.)

This is ridiculous. Stop the madness. Should stores stop selling egg salad and potato salad etc because some people are allergic to eggs. Canít sell milk either as some folks are lactose intolerant. Close all restaurants as they are filled with allergic ingredients.

I get the point you're trying to make, but those aren't airborne allergens. Not the same thing.

I guess you've never seen a food fight in a school cafeteria.
