No. There is no special amendment. And no, this lack of Crackerjacks doesn't impair their quality, or safety, or well-being, if they have to go without.


Like I said, it's a silly hill to plant their flags.

But did you know that touching, smelling, or inhaling airborne particles from peanuts does not cause a severe reaction."

There's probably more peanuts in a cookie than there are in a box of crackerjacks. This is such nonsense.

And just how will they prevent people from bringing in their own (either CJ or other snacks w/peanuts)?? Full strip searches at the entrance?

What you don't get is the catering to everyone no matter how small their problem is occurring more and more and I'm sick of it. Let them take personal responsibility if they have a problem with peanuts - why should a whole stadium be denied anything because 1 or 2 people have a problem with it.

Give an inch they take a mile and this is what is happening in society today. You're condoning the lack of personal responsibility.

Maybe we have to approach this differently - what is near and dear to you that might be offensive or harmful to 1 out of a thousand people and because that person objects - you have to do without.

The last time I bought a box of Crackerjack I counted 7 peanuts in the box. It was a shame too because the peanuts were the only good things in there, the popcorn sucked. It was stale and stuck together.

I'm sick of accommodating those that are a small minority. My kids have allergies - we never expected others to change anything they did to accommodate them.

They died. Most would have a reaction of hives and/or wheezing a few times before anaphylaxis, but not all.

The same school had a ton of kids brought in as refugees and since they didn't have income besides govt subsidy they were on the free lunch program. The parents immediately demanded a halal option!! They demanded their free meals prepared a certain way. They could have simply had a salad for lunch.

So, a good idea? Ya, no way gonna work though.
I love San Diego ... Thanks for ruining it for me.

LOL...I know right? I wish they'd just sell those peanuts boxed by themselves...they were the main attraction.
