Blood and Raisin Toast

I wonder how the intimate association of raisin toast with blood donation began.

The “stick around for awhile so we can make sure you don’t faint” period after donating plasma is the only part of my life that involves raisin toast at all, yet the experience would seem incomplete without it.

I equate blood donations with raisin toast and also chocolate milk. It is the only place I ever drink chocolate milk (or cow's milk for that matter).
