"The Cracker Jack Company" Type IIIa kit

What you see is what you get!


The Cracker Jack Company kit is of the K Ration type IIIa kind. This type was produced from May/June 1943 until Februari 1944, but was still in stock and issued until the end of the war. This composition is representive for its entire period.
The Old Gold cigaret cartons will be replaced with Lucky Strikes as soon I have finished those.
There are four extra blank sugar wrappers included. This will give you the choice to use either sugar tablets or a carton of granulated sugar with the Dinner unit.
A kraftboard carton for caramels is included if no suitable caramels can be found for the Choclettos tray.
In one of the units the Spearmint chewing gum can be substituted with a Cinnamon flavor chewing gum.
No cellophane sheets are included for overwrapping the fruit bar, Choclettos or cigarettes. No toilet tissue is included.

None of the kits will contain any foodstuffs, cigarettes or matches.

This kit only cost $10!
12 kits of the same type are only $100!

(After 2017 the price will be $15 a set, $150 a dozen.)

The outer cartons are of the "seal-end flaps" type. This means that the flaps are glued shut like the inner cartons. These boxes are designed for using them only once.
The inner cartons are uncoated and should be coated with wax once they are filled and sealed.

The outer and inner boxes and the components are shipped flat together.

This is how you will receive the unassembled components. Read the complete "Reproduction" chapter for tips how to fill these wrappers and packagings.
You will need glue for the wrappers and boxes, and a hair straightner for sealing the pouches. The matches only need a staple.
