It's interesting how some plants start out being used for certain parts and then most of the plant is now used.

My son and I were visiting friends and he was introduced to this vile concoction.

When his friend's Dad asked him how he liked them, he replied,

"Well, they are a little bit terrible."

Don't roll the log over, don't roll the log over.

Just the name alone is disgusting.

Who wants to eat ants?  We're not aardvarks.

We always called them bumps on a log when I was growing up

Never heard of it.  But then I'm in Canada.  Peanut butter on celery ribs was a thing.  Not a thing I ever wanted to eat, but a thing nonetheless.  I only ever put cheese on celery.  Or sometimes just salt.

You should try "ants climbing up a tree" in a chinese restaurant. Violently fiery...

Preferably a Chinese restaurant specializing in Sichuanese food

The purpose of celery is that it will fill your stomach without giving you any more carbs or fat to have to burn. I keep a tupperware full of raw carrots and celery to snack on, because it's either that or something incompatible with my diet.

Once, while in high school, I had dinner at a friend's house. The kid's dad was known for making some great food, so I was excited. The man made us spaghetti and meatballs. Homemade everything, even the noodles. So, pretty great, right? I cut open what I though was a ravioli and a pile of effin raisins comes spilling out all over. I looked at the chef and he said something about the raisins and how they compliment the sauce. It was a very traumatic experience. I farking hate raisins!

As my sister once said, "Why would you do that to a grape?"

They replaced the raisins and celery with real food?

... or as I like to call them: "leper-grapes".

I never had this growing up, I saw so many people eating it I thought it must be good, I always wondered what it tasted like. We did not have celery in our house (I don't know why) , when I finally tried it, it was probably one of the worst things I ever tasted. celery and peanut butter are vile together. it was then that I realized how much other peoples parents must have hated them.

I like ants on a log and still eat them every once in a while, but I don't know when or why I started in the first place. I refused to eat peanut butter as a kid and didn't start eating it well into my teens. I definitely never had it at home. Another mystery.

It's what happens when grapes pick the wrong Grail.
