Were you one of those kids that had raisins in a tiny red box with this maiden of the sun on it? Sticky fingers and all? Me too. Now I go for the big box and I prefer the golden instead of black raisins.
There's the same amount of fiber per serving of raisins as there are prunes. Seriously, why are prunes stereotyped as a colon clearer but raisins aren't?
Anyway, the plastic bag inside the box how has a sticker to close the bag when you're done. Like the prescription cat food I buy. For a cat, not me.
Pretty! Like tiny dried apricots! And there's a couple dark ones snuck in there.
Sun-Maid California Golden Raisins in the dried fruit and nut section of the store for $4.49 a 15 oz box. That makes each of the (approximately) 11 quarter-cup portions about $0.41.
