We’re learning more about that new kind of Cracker Jack that is expected to be in stores around Christmas time.

We told you that the old Cracker Jack candy is coming out with a new line called Cracker Jack’d that include caffeinated kernels. Well, now the Center for Science in the Public Interest says the snack is a direct violation of FDA law because the 2-ounce bags contain the aforementioned caffeine. 

The center is asking the maker of the product, Frito Lay, not to put the new item on store shelves because they feel it is too dangerous for kids.

Frito Lay is not budging, saying the product will be marketed towards adults, not children.
