On May 19, 2004 — Yankee spokesman Jason Zillo announces Cracker Jack, which has been baseball’s most famous snack for over 100 years, will not be sold at Yankee Stadium and will be replaced by a product known as Crunch ‘n Munch. The change, short-lived due to the fans’ negative reaction, is being made, according to Yankees’ officials, because Crunch ‘n Munch tastes better, but may have been really prompted by Frito-Lay’s decision to package the game’s well-known treat in only bags and not boxes.
