Friends don't let friends poison themselves with raisins. This shirt would be the best way to let them know that!

Raisins DO suck! I hate it when I have the most fantastic desert about to go to food heaven and then there are raisins to spoil it all, so rather than enjoying my cake or cookie or whatever I have to sit and pick out the raisins. They're ruiners of things.

Probably. But for everyone who whines that Woot isn't selling this or that, or that they are selling this or that - your tastes don't speak for everyone else's.

Just take it as folks who have nothing better to do but to rant and whine.

Oh, and FWIW, I ate healthy this morning. 1 packet of oatmeal with RAISINS, and one pack of protein. So I have to love the raisins, OK?

I'm pretty sure apple pie originated in Europe roughly 400 years before America existed.

Yep. First double take in which that's happened.

Here's the original derby for reference.

We'll see if these have more lasting power in the reckoning compared to the original winners, though. There's one remaining, and it's currently in the danger zone.

On this note, if one's called Prune Juice, why isn't the other Raisin Juice?

I really can't believe anyone would want an Oatmeal cookie without Raisins. I think this shirt is ridiculous.

People just haven't had a good oatmeal raisin cookie. You have to soak the raisins in something (like rum) beforehand, to add flavor and compensate for the moisture lost during baking.

Raisins rule!

Oatmeal cookies NEED raisins. Starbucks actually has this right, with their "outrageous oatmeal cookie" with THREE different kinds of raisins in it. Oatmeal chocolate cookies? Bleecch! That kind of smeary mess goes straight to the garbage.

And don't get me started about bread pudding without raisins. Bread pudding consists of no less than bread, raisins, and a sweet syrup baked together. Leave out the raisins, and you have nothing but soggy baked French toast. So-called chocolate bread pudding is only fit to be an ashtray.

Not that I hate chocolate; chocolate is a perfectly good coating for raisins.

This is awesome. And the write-up to it is exactly what I have been saying ever since I was a little kid when my mom tried to feed me raisins... They're ROTTEN grapes! Who in their right mind would eat ROTTEN fruit?!?!

congrats Boots! You dominated the Double-Take Derby Fog. Glad to see it was rewarded.

side note: I actually do like raisins in my cookies, and cereal... but I will say that they're far superior in the grape form.

I'm not a fan specifically because this diverts attention away from the dessert world's Public Enemy Number One: walnuts.

When somebody makes that shirt, I'll buy a hundred and give one to every sadist who's ever given me a brownie with walnuts in it.

Congrats! What a nice birthday present!

And for all of you talking up the oatmeal raisin cookies, they're FAR better as oatmeal craisin cookies. Or oatmeal-craisin-chocolate chip cookies.

Belated Birthday salutations Boots. I got you this choc-chip cookie...(Pause for effect) What do you mean they're not choc-chips?!?!!
Anyway, the design looks groovy on the shirt. What I fear more than sabotaged cookies are bloated raisins masquerading as real food in an otherwise tasty curry.

I have been paranoid androiding about raisins in my oat meal cookies for years! Same with Carrot Cake, your eating this delicious cookie, and the raisins aren't so bad, but the cookie it digested by your mouth far faster then the raisin. Then, all of the sudden your not eating a delicious oat meal cookie or carrot cake, your just eating raisins, and the taste your left with after dessert? not the yummy cookie or cake, BUT RAISINS!!!!!!

I knoooooow! It drives me crazzzzzzzy! Like when people consistently write "your" when they mean "you are" and thus "you're." Homophone misuse: raisins of the written word, AMIRITE?! High-five! =P

My mom used to make great oatmeal raisin cookies when I was a kid; they were my dad's favorite, so I learned to like them.

However!

When you're a kid, and you come home from school and see a plate of delicious-looking chocolate chip cookies, and you run over and grab one and bite into it expecting chocolately goodness but instead get [rage]RAISINS[/rage]...

Well, there just ain't words enough to express that kind of disappointment, and I fully sympathize with this shirt. Congrats Boots, grabbed mine last night!

I had Pineapple Shrimp fried rice at a Thai restuarant today, and it had raisins in it! They added a very pleasing sweetness to the dish. So, I beg to differ! They do not ruin everything!

That dish sounded unappetizing before you mentioned raisins, now its even more so.

I had that dish the other day as well and it was delicious... and spicy!

I've said it before and I'll say it again... raisins are awesome, ESPECIALLY oatmeal raisin cookies with butterscotch chips.

It's ok tho boots... I still like your shirts. ;)
