    My favorite California Raisin memory from childhood is that my mom used to pack raisins in our school lunches.

    My brother performed the “I Heard it Through the Grapevine” song, dressed up as a California Raisin in third grade. That’s my favorite memory.

  3. Rebeca says

    my mom and i would make cookies for my dad for his frequent business trips… they were his fave and he got to take a little of “home” with him!

    My favorite memory was the time my aunt was making homemade duck soup and she would add raisins to it. We asked her what were those things floating in the soup and she told us duck eyes. You could not tell they were raisins because they would really plump up. Needless to say I would never even try her soup.
