I'm sorry for your loss. :(
Mar 26, 2017 3:00 AM # 
My butt probably isn't! ;)

Thanks, Bash! You know the buttery tarty goodness I'm talking about too!
Mar 26, 2017 3:07 AM # 
Yes, and I know we both share a love of navigation sports. :)
Mar 26, 2017 4:04 AM # 
Oh no, crushing devastation! The world needs more buttertarts.
Mar 26, 2017 4:53 PM # 
The butter tart has been sacrificed to the trail gods as an offering

Doesn't this mean you get to have 2 next time?

I'm not mad, phatty...just disappointed.
Mar 27, 2017 1:55 PM # 
Well enjoy your mush infested flaky dough cakes sans raisins sec, then. The horror....
Mar 27, 2017 7:34 PM # 
Phatty are you a raisin lover?
If so I'm with you all the way.
I have gotten gross looks from 3 people in the last few weeks including Gabe's bakery in Caledon on Sunday when I asked for a butter tart with raisins. For me it's the only way.
Mar 27, 2017 7:56 PM # 
No judgement here! I hit from both sides of the butter tart plate!

I do believe that I prefer my butter tart beer to be sans raisins, but I've never tried it with, so...??

Of bigger concern is Herme's inability to keep tabs on something as priceless as a fresh mid/post run tart!! Can't imagine how careless she might be with less precious cargo, like.. say, kindergarten kids. :-)
Mar 27, 2017 11:24 PM # 
Okay phatty and Wanda, now I'm mad AND disappointed! ;)

Let's hope Baby gets Bob's navigation skills so when I lose such precious cargo, he can just find his way home.
Mar 27, 2017 11:29 PM # 
He? His?

Losing a tart out of your pack while running is indeed perplexing - why was it in your pack? Why hadn't you just eaten it already? How were you able to not eat a fresh, bakery butter tart when you bought it? They can' t possibly get better with time, especially time jostling up and down in a pack. Maybe a raisin butter tart would have been that much heavier and not bounced out.
Mar 28, 2017 1:43 AM # 
Pecans are pretty heavy too - and so tasty.
Mar 28, 2017 11:19 AM # 
Not he or his. We won't know until September 10th!

I didn't think losing a tart was possible myself but I do recall shuffling in my pocket for my phone.

Maybe I didn't eat the tart because I opted to eat my fresh scone first instead. Just maybe! And now I've learned the hard way.
Mar 28, 2017 12:38 PM # 
A scone sounds easier to carry in a pocket!

So, I guess you guys aren't big oatmeal - raisin cookie fans either? More the chocolate chip types probably. And, I'm thinking you are not fruitcake lovers either.
Mar 29, 2017 12:44 AM # 
Finally! An apology we have all been waiting for. Rest easy, my friends. ;)

Plus one for oatmeal choc chip!
Meme didn't work but you can imagine what i went for...
Mar 29, 2017 2:07 AM # 
Oh, don't get me wrong. Raisins have their place - just not in buttertarts. I've made some oatmeal raisin chocolate chip cookies in my time although I'll admit they're better if I leave the raisins out.

As a dentist's wife, I hear a lot of trash talk about dried fruit in general. This is just the tip of the iceberg!
Mar 29, 2017 1:56 PM # 
Screw you guys, I'm headed out for a cinnamon raisin bagel, paying homage to dried up grapes and their wonderful place in this crazy world.
Mar 29, 2017 3:04 PM # 
There is no worse food experience than buying what you believe is an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie and you bite into it and it is oatmeal raisin.
Mar 29, 2017 3:34 PM # 
Hammer nailed it. If I wanted to eat a cookie with blisters, I'd nibble on my feet post race.

Enjoy your blister bagel!
Mar 29, 2017 3:35 PM # 
That's a huge cookie disappointment! Although cinnamon raisin bagels *are* pretty good. Mmm, toasted hot with cream cheese.
Mar 30, 2017 1:25 AM # 
coach ld:
Blisters eh? Nice image. You nibbling on your own feet. Not only gross, but tough at the best of times. Better hope you don't get raisin cravings in the next few months - it's only going to get tougher to reach your own feet :)
Mar 30, 2017 1:38 AM # 
Y'all can rest tonight because I just made a batch of oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. It was only right and totally inspired by this thread.
Mar 30, 2017 2:44 AM # 
This thread was just making me hungry... right up until the feet came into it.

... I'm actually trying to think of any food I don't like... and I don't think a food exists that I DISlike as much as some people hate on the raisins.
Mar 30, 2017 3:18 AM # 
I would eat a buttertart with raisins if no proper buttertart was offered but I'd rather have Hermes' fresh-baked oatmeal chocolate chip cookies - yum!
Mar 30, 2017 12:47 PM # 
I'm still waiting for my appetite to return after all the talk about nibbling on blistered feet :-(

... been good for my diet tho'...
Mar 30, 2017 4:10 PM # 
So lucky for me they sell chocolate chip cookies in the cafe in the building adjacent to mine (which is connected by a walkway so I don't have to go outside). Why? Because you can't just post that you baked chocolate chip cookies and expect others to not get hungry and then want to eat one.

Unlike butter tarts that are yucky and messy and disgustingly unappealing. Yeah that's right I said it.
Mar 30, 2017 4:21 PM # 
I didn't realize you were secretly an American. Sad!
Mar 30, 2017 7:53 PM #

The so called theory of yummy tasting butter tarts is a hoax and fake news.
Mar 31, 2017 1:36 AM # 
coach ld:
This is YUGE!! And might make this ridiculously long thread even longer. Hammer has really stirred the pot. What if the butter tarts had chocolate chips in them? Would that make up for the yucky messiness? Or would that just be some other form of sacrilege?
Mar 31, 2017 1:50 AM # 
Sorry Shannon I apologize. :-)
Mar 31, 2017 2:03 AM # 
Don't let that guy bother you, Hermes. He's the one who promised to Make Youth Orienteering Great Again. He had some run-ins with the healthcare system and then he hired his daughter. These guys are all the same!
Mar 31, 2017 4:40 PM # 
I suppose you don't like the Hip, campfires and Beer as well! ;)

Bob chimed in and is plus one for raisins. How embarrassing.
Mar 31, 2017 11:32 PM # 
Yes. There is hope for the next generation. Even if it's a recessive trait.

Raisins are never embarrassing - neither are husbands. Right Bash?
Apr 2, 2017 3:13 AM # 
'Bent hates raisins but he also hates buttertarts. Sigh.
Apr 2, 2017 3:16 AM # 
Next time Two and a Half MENisci race together (aka Bent and I) maybe we will rename our team "Real Men don't eat raisins...and hate butter tarts"
Apr 2, 2017 11:01 AM # 
Don't deport me! Although I had a chocolate butter tart once that wasn't bad. Is it a butter tart if they replace the goo with chocolate though?
Menisci- 2 1/2. Butter tarts- 0.

I suppose that indirectly raisins pay for a lot of my outdoor sports.
Apr 2, 2017 11:07 AM # 
maybe it's all that icky butter tart goo that keeps knee joints functioning
