Its not my fault or problem that certain people are allergic to peanuts. All they have to do is NOT eat them. Plain & simple. Why is everybody so damn sensitive about every little thing now. Its crazy.

I loved crackerjack as a kid & still do. Always liked the surprises in the box like a tiny compass.

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.
Agreed!


Sassy just isn't "getting it."

Agree. Those peanuts were the absolute best part.

Crackerjacks Banned at Ballpark

Well, I definitely need to get my eyeglasses for reading changed...I read the post as Carjackers Banned at Ballpark and I thought to myself, well that's a great idea if you know who they are and can spot them before any cars get stolen...sheesh.

You know the "surprises" haven't been of that sort for a long time, right? It's been paper prizes like jokes or temporary tattoos. Now they're just codes to play games on an app.

Maybe they shouldn't have eaten them?

People don't always realize that allergies are not necessarily stable. I had an allergic reaction to ibuprofen in the 80's, mild itchy hives on my forearms. First time, I didn't connect it to the med. Second time, the idea dawned. Third time - getting worse now - I called an ambulance, but by the time they arrived, it was gone, so I went to my doctor. He told me it was stress because my husband was away. I was young, and so I went along, though I wasn't sure I quite believed him completely, and stopped taking it. However, I had a blinding migraine when I was in the ER with my husband (asthma), and took a large dose to get some relief. I was *covered* with large, itchy hives, my entire body swelled, and I started having trouble breathing. I nearly fainted, as my blood pressure dropped.



So, yeah. It's easy to say "just don't do it", but it's a facile answer.
