So, here's one for you.
Why is it, that when you buy trail mix -- it's predominantly raisins?
Even the "Magical Mystery Mix" from Whole Foods - isn't that magical nor mysterious.
It's clearly, predominantly raisins. And not just plain raisins, but yogurt covered ones as well.
So basically, I bought a container of raisins with a few nuts and chocolate chips scattered in.
I hate raisins.
I don't like them cooked in food...I don't like them in bagels or bread. And dear God, don't give me plain raisins. I do however, tolerate yogurt raisins.
And of course - wine.
But I will qualify with that I don't particularly care for Amarones (heavy raisin flavor) or dessert wines. Outside of the cloyingly sweet flavor, I don't love ones with a raisin like quality.
Where this disdain for the dried little grape came from, I'll never know. I remember my mother giving me the little Sunmaid raisin boxes when I was little and I remember loving them. I don't know if I ate a bad one or what - but man, do I not like them.
And yet here I sit, eating the very un-magical and un-mysterious mix from Whole Foods.
Trying to avoid the raisins......
