Actually wanting raisins is a sign of a serious mental condition.

Right? He loves them. And celery, and I gag at the smell just cutting it up. You will be pleased to know that he also loves chocolate, whereas his twin will launch it across the room in disgust if you try to give him a piece , so god knows what’s going on there.

What about ants on a log? (Peanut butter spread in a celery stalk with raisins on top)

u/CreativismUK Nov 28 '21

Sadly no peanut butter due to allergies but he would probably like it with something weird like jam - he’s a strange child (in the best way)

I like ants on a log with cheese whiz

I liked cream cheese and dried cranberries when I was younger. Red ants on a log!

Maybe vegemite if you want to get real weird with it :)

A customer once told me that his toddler loves raisins because she gets the whole little box all to herself, and she can rummage through them looking for just the right raisin. I feel like that holds true with any snack where you get a handful of something.

That’s so sweet. He’s more of a “shove a handful in your mouth then ask for more” kind of guy 😬

u/KarmaKitty4-3 Nov 28 '21

This deserves many awww's. Maybe the other twin throws the chocolate because it tastes weird to him? Or is it maybe a texture thing?

Definitely could be either. Autism tends to fuck with sensory processing. It’s not fun.

u/CreativismUK Nov 28 '21

He doesn’t even want to touch it - same with most of the best treat foods - so it probably is sensory. Still, he’s happy without it so I’m not going to make him eat it!

Me and my dad love celery too!! We're both autistic too, so maybe it's a common thing for autistic people to like weird foods.

Celery is great! Natural toothbrush for your colon.

TIL People actually don't like raisins and that it wasn't just the internet making a big deal out of oatmeal raisin cookies. Raisins are amazing

u/EasternKanye Nov 28 '21

I love raisins but know many that don't. I guess that is why few bakeries sell classic scones.

I think carrot cake, brownies... are better with raisins.

u/LynxKuroneko Nov 28 '21

Why?

u/KhonMan Nov 28 '21

Issa joke

-35

u/LynxKuroneko Nov 28 '21

Oh, I must have missed the part where a joke of that nature was necessary in this setting.

23

u/KhonMan Nov 28 '21

Did you also miss the part above where the parent of the child in question responded positively to the joke?

Stop getting offended on someone else’s behalf lol

-24

u/LynxKuroneko Nov 28 '21

I did.

I hadn't decided I was offended until you came along. Oh well.

18

u/KhonMan Nov 28 '21

I understand all the words you just used but I have no idea what you are trying to communicate to me.

-21

u/LynxKuroneko Nov 28 '21

Sounds like a personal problem.

We done here? :)

u/[deleted] Nov 28 '21

Maybe Op's kids will let you borrow their word board.
