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 cone-shaped crackers, each containing three items: one tissue paper crown, one joke, and a surprise toy trinket. Each of the cracker’s two segments is wrapped in classic Caspari paper. Individuals or partners grab the ends and pull to pop open the closed section with a bang and reveal the prizes inside. Before prize time, these crackers can stand up on their base and be displayed on tabletops, mantles, and more.
