Strange Baby Foods

Have you ever seen these crackers? The twins are completely obsessed with them. They literally lose their minds when they see the box. I think it's clear from the packaging that they are not American. The box boasts that these "rice rusks" have been enjoyed by babies in the Orient for over a century! Who knew? (and what the hell is a rice rusk?)?! Charlotte and Gavin LOVE LOVE LOVE them. I cannot stress this enough.

So you can imagine my dismay when I looked for them in their usual spot at Acme two weeks ago, right next to the Treacle and the Spotted Dick (no joke--another clue that they weren't American), and they were nowhere to be found. I generally remain calm in these situations, but these are BABY MUM-MUMS, the twins' dietary staple, for heaven's sake! I immediately made my way to Customer Service to explain how unacceptable this was, and the worker had the nerve to ask if I was sure I was looking in the right place. You don't need to know all the details, but you should know that the next few moments were punctuated with some begging and a few tears, and I think I may have promised to buy a case of Mum-Mums and perhaps I even promised my next-born child. The details are fuzzy as I was somewhat hysterical. Either way, it worked, and I'm happy to say the Mum-Mums are back on the shelf, happily wedged between the Treacle and Spotted Dick, where they belong.

  1. add my two to the completely obsessed list. it's the only snack they can eat in the stroller/carseat since they can actually hold them and i cannot actually give them a bowl or bag of anything at this point. you can buy them in bulk at amazon. that's what we do because we seriously go through at least one box per week!
