Food with a Face…

31 Mar
Sam: You don’t like raisins?
Joon: Not really.
Sam: Why?
Joon: They used to be fat and juicy and now they’re twisted. They had their lives stolen. Well, they taste sweet, but really they’re just humiliated grapes. I can’t say I am a big supporter of the raisin council.
Sam: Did you see those, those raisins on TV? The ones that sing and dance and stuff?
Joon: They scare me.
Sam: Yeah me too
Joon: It’s sick. The commercial people they make them sing and dance so people will eat them.
Sam: It’s a shame about raisins.
– Benny and Joon, 1993
Why put a face on food when it isn’t necessary?  I love mashed potatoes but saw this recipe and it made me cringe…As if the average child isn’t picky enough let’s throw eyebrows and a nose to make them even more traumatized.  Food for thought…
