Name That Food

July 26th, 2010

EDDIE DANIELS – It’s probably wrong of me to assume it was Lisa Landis who left this mystery food in the WJTL refrigerator. But since she’s on vacation this week and not here to defend herself, I’m going to do it anyhow.

Lisa is my prime suspect mostly because she has a history of bringing in random food items such as the one(s) pictured below. The only other person who uses the fridge on a regular basis is John, but he’s very good at making his usual sandwich, banana, and yogurt disappear during the lunch hour.

But my biggest concern isn’t who left these weird deep-red mystery items in an unsealed plastic bag. My concern is what are they? I haven’t bothered to smell them because I’m not that brave. They appear to be small plums. Or large cherries. Or beets. Or something else I haven’t thought of.

I’m also not sure why they are all three in different stages of decay. One seems perfectly round, one looks a little bruised, and the third looks downright smooshed.

Have a look. What do you think they are?

    Grapes, fermenting into raisins? Or maybe soon ready for some wine:-)

    If the photo is to scale, then definitely cherries. If not, then my vote is plums. I think the one in the middle was a newer purchase. I definitely wouldn’t eat any of them, though, Eddie.

    I definitely think they are big grapes, but i don’t know why they are each in different stages of rotting. Good luck figuring it out!!:)

    I also vote for cherries. Again, it’s hard to tell the actual size. Is it a sandwich, snack, quart, or gallon size baggie?

    Guilty as charged! I heard my ears buzzing and logged on from vacation. They are SUGAR PLUMS and they
    were super sweet and delicious, but that’s because they were ready to eat. I had planned to share with Fred and Eddie, but I guess I got too busy doing my radio show and forgot :( Eddie, I dare you to eat one. And, yes, you may throw them out.

    @Lisa
    Sugar plums?? Sugar plums? I thought they only existed in Christmas poems. Only you, Lisa, would actually have sugar plums in your possession. Or know where to get them.

    Case closed. You’re one step ahead of even Gwenda Gumshoe!

    Now get back to vacation-ing!

    (And well done, Becky! You were correct!)

    I’m with you Lisa, I dare Eddie D to try one! :) I thought they were cherries, guess not. Like Eddie said, “case closed”. :)
