Remember the Raisins & Win a Family of Ray-Bans 

Well I heard it through the grapevine....

that a dried up little friend of mine

is nominated for something fine.

And I'm just about to lose my mind, honey, honey yeaaaa

I was just wondering what my girls will remember from their childhood. What icons will stick in their heads as they are talking to their kids about the TV shows and commericals they used to watch? For me, the California Raisins will always come to mind.

It was the Marvin Gaye song we all loved (in the commercials and also in the movie, The Big Chill).

Plus the animation/claymation was fun to watch.

And of course, the ultra cool Ray-Ban sunglasses the Raisins wore. (Tom Cruise made those shades popular in Risky Business, and Ray Bans made everyone, including the California Raisins, cool.)

 

It's Time to Honor the California Raisins with a Giveaway

The California Raisins have been nominated for Advertising Week's Icon Walk of Fame and they need YOUR VOTE to get there! (Hurry! Voting ends September 18, 2009.)

When I use to get grounded by my parents, I would put on a big shirt and stuff it into my pants/shorts. I would then stuff the shirt with whatever I could find to make me plump like a raisin. I would dance around and drive my parents crazy singing the heard it through the grapvine song! They would usually unground me within the first verse. I loved to make them crazy, of course they thought I was!

I voted for them as favorite icon!! My FAVORITE memory is a California Raisins computer game my dad bought us a loooong time ago! I don't remember much about the game, but my brothers and I used to fight over it all the time! I so need to try and find it, I would love to play it again!

Thanks for this bit of nostalgia - I just cast my vote for the raisins! My favorite memory is seeing them on TV and thinking how cool it was. I even had a plastic California Raisins toy with bendy arms - in fact, I bet you I still have it somewhere! Fun giveaway!

My fondest memory is opening my brown lunch bag at school and there were always California Raisins inside. Still today, I eat raisins as a snack as often as I can.

I voted! My favorite Memory of the Raisens is the Halloween after the Raisens got famous. EVERYONE seemed to be dressed as a Raisen! What a memory.

I bought a pair of Ray-Ban 3025 Aviators from coolframes.com and they arrived fast. They were perfect, and the site was really responsive. I also saved $50
