Re-Rolling a Fruit Roll-Up

FOR THE PAST ten minutes I've been trying to get our 5 year-old to understand that fruit roll-ups taste the same whether they are rolled-out or scrunched-up in a ball. When he opened the roll-up (gift from the US) it immediately began sticking to itself and lost it's -- shall we say -- flatness.

Then I got the idea. We headed to the kitchen where I pulled out a heavy rolling pin. I took the 'ruined' fruit roll-up and put it between two pieces of plastic film and rolled it like crazy. Now it has been 'fixed' and is once again edible. And, I might add, bigger than before.

Relatively boring story, I know. But it's all I got right now.

God love us, we're living in France and our kids still want Fruit Roll-Ups. My sister works for General Mills and even she's not sure whether it's actually food or not.

Does NOT count as a food group. My kids are spared from that. But if you really must, spend 10E for a pack at The American Market in Geneva, near train station, next visit!

Don't you just love blogging, when you can write about a fruit roll-up and send it out to the world?

Haha, that's so funny that you would "fix" a fruit roll-up. My deprived girls don't know what they are. I'll have to "fix" that...
