Open Letter to Craisins

Dear Craisins,

I think we first met at a Saladworks. I ordered a Mandarin Chicken salad and there you were. I thought to myself, “Wow, what kind of raisins are these?” Back then I didn’t even know your name, but since then we’ve both grown up a little bit.

I thank the fine people at Ocean Spray for bringing you into the world. I went through life for over twenty-five years without you, but I don’t want to live in a world without Craisins.

    That’s funny we just bought craisins yesterday for a school project for Phelan. She glued them on a peice of poster board. She did a report on the state of Wisconsin and showed on a map where the cranberries grow. and Phelan said, “Mom I love these, can you buy them all the time!”

    You haven’t heard anything until you hear his version of “Crazy for Crasins” set to the tune of Madonna’s “Crazy For You.” He truly is an individual (I am being polite).

    Sorry, Ben corrected me. It is called “Craisins For Me.”

    that’s beautiful. I think I know where you get your sweet lyrical skills.

  10. Hey Ben, do you like oatmeal cookies? A vendor brought us lunch the other day and I quickly grabbed what I thought was a chocolate chip cookie. I was mildly disappointed when I realized it was oatmeal raisin. When I got around to eating it I found it was actually oatmeal Craisin. It was awesome. I would have preferred the chocolate, but the cookie was still awesome.
