London based pastry maker Tom Smith invented the Christmas cracker after a trip to France where he was inspired by their bonbon treats. When he returned to London he tried selling the paper wrapped sugared almonds himself with little success. That is until inspiration struck one night as he sat listening to the snaps and pops of his fireplace. What if he could make the treats crackle like the fire when opened? Little did he know that this thought would be the beginning of a timeless Christmas tradition. Crackers evolved from treats to notes, and finally to the trinket-filled, paper wrapped, popping cardboard tubes we know today. Crackers are a perfect addition to your Thanksgiving or Christmas table, your Christmas Eve, or Christmas morning traditions. Use them in your place settings, as tree ornaments, stocking stuffers, and more.
This box includes six individual 12-inch long crackers, each containing three items: one tissue paper crown, one joke, and one surprise toy trinket. Each of the cracker's three segments is wrapped in classic Caspari paper and separated by a bow. Individuals or partners grab the end segments and pull to pop open the center section with a “bang” and reveal the prizes inside. When pulling as a pair, prizes can be divided up or a winner of all the prizes can be determined by who holds the larger portion of the cracker once it's pulled apart.
