“What fruit do you use to make toe jam?"/"You use fruit by the foot.”

A fruit riddle was posted on Reddit—Jokes on February 12, 2021:

Q: What fruit do you use to make toe jam?
A: You use fruit by the foot.


Fruit by the Foot is a fruit snack. “Toe jam” has nothing to do with fruit jam, however.


Wikipedia: Toe jam
Toe jam may refer to “gunk” caught between one’s toes, defined by the UPMC as comprising one or more of the following: sock lint, dry skin flakes, softened corns, fungal infections, scabies, mucus.

Wikipedia: Fruit by the Foot
Fruit by the Foot is a fruit snack made by General Mills and distributed under the Betty Crocker brand. It was introduced in 1991 in North America and is still in production.

It’s called Fruit by the Foot, not because it comes out in 1 ft. increments, but because it’s made with toe jam. It is literally fruit (made) by the foot.
