On their own I like raisins but never mixed with other food.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: Bathia_Mapes: #8: Cinnamon rolls

This cannot be thised enough

Agreed. Raisins should only ever be covered in dark chocolate. Otherwise, they don't belong in anything that calls itself food - and especially not in any baked good.

So, a lot of people on fark are backwards, un-sophisticated, never-developed-an-adult-taste-bud-in-their-lives, basement dwellers from Bumfark, USA. And want to be funny about it. We get it.

Wow, talk about an arrogant ignorant douche bag! Take it easy, raisins are a weird indicator of class or whatever bs you were complaining about.

Am I the only person on the planet who eats raisins?

/maybe that's why the industry it's still going?
//but how am I so thin?
///oh, right, raisins...
2012-11-11 12:27:10 AM  
There are a number of things that I didn't care for as a child. Pimento cheese and olive loaf come to mind. But I like them now. But I can recall a time when I didn't like raisins. We didn't get them often as a kid except some folks handed little boxes of them out at Halloween.

Carrot and raisin salad? I like that. Apples, grapes and pecans mixed in with the chicken salad at Arby's? That too. My mother used to add apples and sweet pickles to tuna. I could eat that all day long.

Heck, I even like fruitcake as long as it comes from the Collin Street Bakery down in Corsicana..

stainedglassdoll: Frozen green grapes is one of my favorite summer snacks.

Do you remember when they first came out with that ad? Roundly condemned in ubet-lib butthurt circles as racist. This was almost as stupid as the outrage over the racist Jar Jar Binks.

As for raisons, Waldorf Salad, YES.

Waldorf salad calls for grapes. Even though it's a terrible salad, substituting raisins (aka 'the extremely poor person's grape') is offensive.
2012-11-11 12:56:36 AM  


Let me just say that if there is someone somewhere on the planet eating something you don't think should be eaten then, my friend, it is your tastebud's lack of agreement with nourishment or your unwillingness to develop new tastes and explore new culinary landscapes. So why do we have to be talking about your problems yet again? You sound like your body would reject beef broth.

Or for short: Candyasses!

Raisins in salad are sublime if the lettuce and dressing are adjusted to compensate for their sweetness.

No, you're not the only one:

Oatmeal chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich. Hand dipped ice cream, spread to order on freshly baked cookies. Sex in da mouf.

I REALLY wish that I could +rep you for that.

optikeye: Chicken Salad.

yes!! no fruit belongs in chicken salad, period.
2012-11-11 02:06:31 AM  
You naysayers don't know the future. 2 year olds are demanding raisins. They will grow up thinking raisins are sweet and reject sugar.
2012-11-11 02:19:21 AM  
As someone who was eating a bowl of oatmeal (with raisins and cinnamon) for breakfast when I opened this link, I'm getting a kick...

Oatmeal and raisins are a delicious food pairing, either as hot breakfast cereal or in cookie form.
2012-11-11 02:20:34 AM  

optikeye: Chicken Salad.

Now this is just wrong.
2012-11-11 02:29:46 AM  

Dallymo: I like raisins by themselves or in savory things: couscous, salads, pork chops with apples and raisins, stuffing, curry chicken salad...

I don't like raisins in sweet things except cinnamon raisin bread, and I especially hate them in cookies. The oatmeal raisin cookie is not the worst cookie, but it is the most disappointing cookie because its appearance suggests that it might be the best cookie, the chocolate chip cookie.

Also, no nuts in cookies. Or brownies. No. Wrong and bad.

/I may have some control issues about food.
//I make Chex mix with wheat Chex, butter, worcestershire sauce, Tabasco and seasoned salt. Nothing else. Yes, it's "mix"--I mix the wheat Chex with the other stuff.

You are wise and righteous.
2012-11-11 02:48:58 AM  
Why not just say you don't like raisins, instead of pretending that there are rules about where raisins do and don't belong?

And what's this about "no fruit belongs in chicken salad"? Some of you people sound like you have serious OCD. Fruit belongs anywhere you want to put it. I put chopped apples, butter pickles, and raisins in my chicken salad. Don't like it? Tough.
2012-11-11 02:48:58 AM  
There's not nearly enough raisins in this trail mix!

/Said no one ever
2012-11-11 03:20:36 AM  

ukexpat: However, they *do* belong in Coronation Chicken.

Not a goddamn chance in farking hell, you heathen jackass. I'm from the U.S., and my Coronation Chicken recipe--and I have this written down*--expressly forbids the inclusion of raisins. It's chicken, powdered curry (I add more if I'm feeling daring and wearing a bow tie), mayonnaise, and that's it. I sometimes eat it slightly warm, but always between two deliciously fresh pieces of bread.

*I don't actually have the recipe written down. As with all great recipes, there is room for experimentation--but never goddamn raisins.
2012-11-11 03:29:21 AM  

Andulamb: Don't like it? Tough.

You realize that different people like different things? No one is telling you what to eat, take it easy. Plus I do enjoy raisins from time to time but PERSONALLY I don't enjoy it mixed with other food just because I don't like the texture and mix of tastes. To get mad that some people don't like raisins mixed with their food is a waste of time and passion.

I can't stand raisins.
One of my favorite memories of my grandmom is her saying to me 'What do you mean you don't like raisins?? You like grapes, you like raisins!'
2012-11-11 03:37:50 AM  

Psycoholic_Slag: My mom used to make carrot and raisin salad. This is the most ungodly combination know to all cuisine.
I would never get past more than one bite before my brain shut down and I froze up at the table. It haunts my dreams to this day.


My grandmother wasn't much of a cook, but she did make plenty of carrot-raisin salad, with canned pineapple chunks. I don't mind it, but every other member of my family turns a little green when I mention it.
2012-11-11 03:39:59 AM  

FunkOut: BobSGA: Meatballs. Apparently a semi-common thing among some Italians, of which my wife is one. Mmm, semi-rehydrated grapes...Jesus Christ, do they suck.

Da fuq? Meatballs?

Some people also make grape jelly meatballs. Apparently it's an East Coast thing, since I had never heard of such nightmarishness until I moved to Ohio.

quatchi: Le Bomb Suprize: ...white chocolate chip cookies.

Are an abomination.

/This is gonna be one of those threads, isn't it?

"White chocolate" is NOT chocolate! There is no chocolate in it, it is milk fat!

2012-11-11 04:55:37 AM  

Spiralmonkey: You sound like the kind of sick puppy who thinks its OK to put pineapple on pizza too. There is no place for fruit on pizza, not even in Hawaii. Maybe possibly in hell...

Fruit that typically goes on pizza: tomato, olives, capsican (bell pepper or whatever weird name people give them).
Going to be a boring pizza.

Kids were much younger, and we lived down south.
We stopped off at local doughnut chain.
Older son said 'I want that one with the raisins on it'
By the time I got over to where he was, the 'raisins' had moved one doughnut over.
We all agreed that we should probably get something healthier to eat that day.
To this day, when ever any of us see the logo for that chain, we always announce 'Home of the flying raisins'

Chocolate AND butterscotch, at that...

I'm with you 200%!!

Oatmeal, Chocolate & Butterscotch. It's like you know my mind!!

I hate raisins in cookies because it is such a pain to have to pick them all out and throw them away.
2012-11-11 11:21:39 AM  
Best place to find raisins...

A local Mexican restaurant has a roasted poblano pepper stuffed with minced pork, almonds, and raisins, and covered with a creamy walnut sauce. It is slap-yo-mama good.

And quitcherbeechin about raisins. Cinnamon rolls, cookies, etc. Not every sweet should be bland and uninteresting. Stick to your boring Krispy Kreme donuts.

One of the worst candies ever. My mom used to buy them all the time. I think she did it just to torment me.

olives and raisins are the devil.
2012-11-11 02:10:18 PM  

TanSau: If I find them in my cookies, cake, oatmeal, bread, or ice cream, I will KILL you.

Alright, done deal. Cause I put them in MY cookies and muffins - the ones they go with - not yours. If someone sneaks in and spikes your cookies with shiate you don't want, go ahead and headshot and shovel 'em.

Get anywhere near MINE though and I reserve the same rights in regards to any meddling you get up to.

Disappointment (n.): Biting into a chocolate-chip cookie and finding out that it's oatmeal-raisin.
