It will be on April 13, 2022 for the April 2022 Wacky Packages set pre orders.

Maybe that would give more time between April Fool's Day and next week for the March sets to be shipped out?

I know the timeliness of the sets coming out pegged to holidays has been discussed before, but does anyone besides me prefer if they just did good "generic" Wackys and not have holiday themed ones almost every month?

I absolutely enjoy the holiday stuff! It is fun to celebrate in our own Wacky way. The beauty of these online sets is that it allows us to do seasonal items like that which just wouldn't work in retail sets. My vote is definitely to keep them!

Maybe in 2023, the monthly sets can have a new theme? Maybe one month CD and record album covers, one month movie posters, one month sodas....you get the idea!

That would certainly eliminate the mismatch holiday timing issue, e.g., receiving Valentine's Day themed Wackies in the middle of March.

I am not complaining, mind you. Any Wackys is better than no Wackys at all....

Will we be getting a CRACKED JILL Wacky soon?

Next will they come out with Cracked Binary Bill and Cracked Nonbinary Nancy?  (I know, politically incorrect...)

I'm surprised they are using the word "cracker". Isn't that a negative term nowadays?

Aw, C'mon guys! Seriously? It is "The Cracker", as in KNUCKLE CRACKER, not slang for an American sub-group! We haven't devolved to the point that words can't be used in any context if one possible use of the word is derogatory! Relax!

Okay then. Sure, "cracker" can mean backwoods southerners with a sometimes disparaging connotation, and I could have a field day giving Cracker Jack a complete reworking using that, but such a gag would never fly, so we crack knuckles instead.

Wait - you said "wazoo".  That has "zoo" in it, where animals are kept in cages against their will.  How could you?!   :P

Oh nuts, they did that seventy years ago.

Tomorrow is the release of April 2022 Wacky Packages - including some Easter entries.

Though no shipping notices as of yet for Wacky Packages March 2022 with the mystery if A-B-Sneeze is a spoof of a Dr. Seuss book or not.

I thought I'd answered that already, but Yes, A B Sneeze is a Seuss parody. I hope you like it!

Was Tix featured before in 2004's ANS1 - A spoof of Trix cereal. Maybe this Tix spoofs Twix candy bar.

Also for April 2022:
1) Does Hornets spoof a Hostess product?
2) If Hedge is a spoof of Edge Shaving Gel, will it feature a hedgehog (Sonic or not) in it?
