Fruit Has Never Tasted So Good

Fruit Dip 

By Heather Blanchette



Today began like any other day: 6 hours of sleep, up early to work on homework, hunch-backing to class with twenty pounds of papers, notebooks and snacks slung over my shoulder, but then in class I made a party foul. Now I am not a very graceful person, but I do try pretty hard to watch myself. However, when you combine lack of sleep, with too much caffeine, with nerves from giving a presentation, it equates to nothing but bad news.

During our luxuriously long and relaxing five minute break given to us as a treat to split up our three hours of sitting in the most uncomfortable desks in a room with poor lighting and curious carpet stains, I pulled out my super cute Little Mermaid container filled with grapes – because obviously my lack of sleep skews my perception of what I am actually going to want as a snack later in the day.

While my tummy grumbled, and the teacher stood watching the minutes tick by on his watch, as to not waste a second more of class time, I ever so carefully knocked the entire, very full container of grapes off my desk.

I watched as the grapes rolled across the room in slow motion, and not only died a little bit inside from the humiliation, but vowed never to bring a healthy snack to school again. Nobody would have laughed if a bunch of Milkyway or Snickers bars rolled across the room, no, then I would have been a hero.

Either way, this story has a happy ending. Although at the time I vowed never to eat another grape again, I remembered how good my Mommy’s Fruit Dip tastes. Even the worst tasting fruit can be saved with Fruit Dip.

All you need is a couple tablespoons of whipped cream cheese (any flavor you want!) and an equal amount of Fluff. Mix it together and ta-da, you have magically revamped your fruit from a sweet-tooth’s nightmare, to their dessert of choice!

And for the record, it is OK, encouraged even, to eat more dip than fruit!

Hi, in my country we eat fruit with salt, sugar, chili mixed together. I want to try it like the picture shown. I bet it’s dilicious and different from the fruit I’ve eaten before.
