Give it up, raisin fans. Dates are bigger, better raisins.

Figs are weird dates.

Prunes are incorrect dates.

Dried apricots need a new name. I suggest: “Golden Jumbo, Better Raisins”

Dried pineapples? No thank you. Ruiners of perfectly good trail mix. The opposite of M&Ms, which make trail mix a fun treat.

Yogurt in trail mix is a no-no. Go back to covering pretzels (yum, sometimes) or being in the bad section of bulk snacks.

Re: Dates are just bigger, better raisings

Speaking of bulk snacks, remember the nougat with the weird like fruit bits in it? Is that still a thing? I don't think I've seen once since John Candy was alive.

I feel like he would be part of a successful sitcom now. Not something on CBS, something funny. (Sorry, Big Bang Theory, your time has passed).

Re: Dates are just bigger, better raisings

FWIW I haven't had a date where anything was raising in a long time.

Unfortunately my last date did not produce a raising.

Is this another thread about Bandoman's (alleged) enormous genitals?

People are saying they are the best, most enormous of all genitals.


Also, if dates are just bigger raisins, than they are the worst food ever. I hate raisins.
