Things just can't be simple anymore...

Brandi loves Craisins.  Apparently, what they've done isrendered a Cranberry juiceless...kinda like a raisin...and called it a "Craisin".  Catchy, huh?

Well here's my gripe.

We were in Wal-Mart last night picking up a few things while we were waiting for parts 1 and 2 of my Medicinal Cocktail to be ready.  We stopped to get some pudding for Jordan's lunch when we passed by the dried fruits. 

Normally, I wouldn't have noticed this.  Look back 5 years and I've never even HEARD of a craisin much less do I know where to find them in a store amongst the other dried fruits.  But there they were.  In all their juiceless glory.  THen I saw something that made me a little concerned...

Cherry Flavored Craisins

So let me get this straight...

Not only are Cranberries so deserving as to have ALL of their juices sucked from them (the VERY reason most of us even eat fruit in the first place) but now they're not even worthy of retaining their original flavor.  Talk about a kick in the balls...

"Hey, Cranberry.  YOU SUCK!  Know what we're gonna do?  We're gonna suck all your juices out!  And then...And then...if that's not bad enough we're gonna tell everyone...from now on...that you don't even TASTE like yourself anymore. From now on you're a CHERRY!"

What did Cranberries do that was so bad?  Probably a silly hate crime from High know how Cranberries are.
