Question


I was out the other day, replacing my cell phone, (didn't get ANYTHING nearly as cool as Cami did, but I like it, that is the one I got, in the picture) and the young woman helping me was enjoying an afternoon snack.
It's all good, she put it away when I got there and didn't sit there, eating while she was assisting me. She was very nice. The snack, though, was Grape Nuts.
This prompted a discussion throughout the store (it was a slow, rainy afternoon) about why the hell those things are called Grape Nuts?
I told them I would submit the question to you, my few, but smart, blog readers, and friends.
So, here is a weekend question. Don't google it, that takes away all the fun. (Though I imagine at some point I might).
Why are Grape Nuts called Grape Nuts?
Anyone?
Bueller, Bueller. . .


Oh, and I got to download ringtones for each person in my address book. I had waaaay too much fun picking things. . .

Did i ever even make your phone book? I'm so anti-phone...

Mimi said...

I know! I once wrote them and asked, and they said it was because grape liquid was used. There you go!

Of course you made my phone. Your song is Bubbly, by Colbie Callait.
Cami got 'Cousin Mary', by Coltrane.

i know it *isn't* because it's sponsored by the grape ape.

i know it *isn't* something that goes good with grape kool-aid.

i know it *doesn't* taste good without a whole PIIIIILE of sugar on top.

that's all i got.

Yeah, Holly, I have to agree. Grape nuts are not something I willingly eat. This kind she had was like a grape nut trail mix, though, with almonds and raisins and stuff in it. I still don't want to eat it. . .

holly said...

so let me get this straight. someone thought it was a good idea to ruin a perfectly lovely idea like trail mix by putting grape nuts in it. why don't people call me before doing these things? people people people!

mielikki said...

Holly, yeah. Grape Nut trail mix, they really should have run that past you. . .

mielikki said...

oh, and I am not ignoring you Mimi, I am just trying to wrap my brain around what "grape liquid" is. Grape juice, wine, or some other foreign stuff we don't know about?

I freaking hate Grape Nuts! Which is weird, because I liked them when I was a kid.
I am not sure I even want to know the answer to that question, though.
My mind gets waay too dirty. ;)

sybil law said...

Oh and I KNOW I don't have a ringtone, but I want one!
I would love to hear the song for it. Or not. Haha

Mimi said...

I had to double check with Dh, it is apparently grape sugar. I couldn't remember if it was grape juice or grape sugar, so I chose liquid to cover both.
