    A pound of bugs and a bushel of dirt, granny used to say. Don’t disparage raisins, Dill. They’re good for you (as granny also said).

    As long as they’re not moving.

    He’s not disparaging raisins, just saying you can camouflage them in those foods because they would blend in.

    I remember those little bugs in the Oatmeal and flour, they tasted like oatmeal or flour…protein for the day….yum yum

    This is the time of year that little moths come out of the rice hopper and cereal boxes.

    Sometimes they hide them in the bottom of a McDonald’s French Fry container.

    Meal worms. We would throw out the flour at that point rather than eat it.

    I once ate half a bag of trail mix before I noticed little white maggots wriggling on my fingers.

    A depression-era friend of my parents used to shrug at bugs in flour. “Sift them out and keep baking” she would say.

    And then there are those who serve their bugs dipped in chocolate.

    A frequent contributor had nearly the identical comment last year as 5 years ago, but, so far, nothing today.

    My step mom’s brothers told her when she was little that raisins were actually dried flies. To her dying day, she never ate raisins again.

    He’s not necessarily disparaging raisins today, but Dill is no fan of raisins (as seen in other strips). Dill doesn’t consider them “real food” (and this from a kid who ranks six-billionth on the Picky Eaters list).


    “Do you know what raisins ARE? DEAD GRAPES!"


    What ‘coconut’ was to Peanuts (NOBODY could eat any without spitting it out, even Snoopy), ‘raisins’ are to Cul de Sac.

    Not just dead grapes they are mummified.
