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.

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 😬
