It's not as if they are welded into a lump.

I used to get those mini boxes of raisins as a 'healthy' snack for my son* when he was tiny, and quite often they would come out as a solid lump.


*one for the 'middle-class parenting tips' thread, if there is such a thing

Coming out as a solid lump helps stop them ending up shoved up the child’s nose. Not lumpy enough ime.

I never shoved them up my kids' noses. Is this a modern part of "parenting"?
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

That's working class parenting. Middle class parents make a carefully calculated decision that it is in their offspring's best long-term interests to learn to breathe through one nostril.

That's proper middle-class parenting.  ;D
