|My brother, Tom, donated a variety of beers including a case of Guinness beer for our family Thanksgiving weekend festivities.|
|See that whatchamacallit lying beside the beer bottle?|
|A plastic thingamajiggy is inside each bottle!|
|There is a method behind the brewer's madness. HEAR SOMETHING? THAT'S THE ROCKET WIDGET DELIVERING YOU THE SAME GREAT TASTE OF GUINNESS DRAUGHT.|
The Irish ventured to step outside of the box to brew a unique beer. They created a rocket widget and stuck one in each bottle of Guinness Draught. I hate to be the one to burst their bubble, but Cracker Jack has been putting prizes in their product since 1912 and a variety of prizes at that.
We had to use a pair of pliers to get the widget out. I guess it's not meant to be an easily accessible prize after all!
Next year, I'll ask Tom to bring a case of Cracker Jack instead.
(Still curious about the widget? Check out the fourth comment for an in depth explanation of exactly why they're used and how they work).
