Which tasty treat was introduced to the public at the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893?
The Chicago World’s Fair in 1893, often called “the fair that changed America,” introduced the American people to the Ferris Wheel, Wrigley’s Juicy Fruit gum, Aunt Jemima pancake mix, and Cracker Jacks. It was at this event that brothers Frederick and Louis Rueckheim had a booth selling a sugary, sweet blend of popcorn and peanuts covered in molasses. Visitors loved the treat so much that a few years later, in 1896, the Rueckheim brothers began selling it commercially under the name “Cracker Jack.” By the 1920s, it was one of the most beloved and best-selling treats in the country.
The correct answer is Cracker Jack.
