Do y’all eat peanut butter & jelly on raw toast or toasted toast?

Users were quick to adopt the term, even providing helpful illustrations for the uninformed.
Person: I like bread.
Me, an intellectual: I like raw toast.

People actually call raw toast, “bread” ??!? LMFAOOO

Some got deep into the semantics of it all.
All bread is bread. Some but not all bread becomes toast. Therefore within the set of bread, there is a subset of bread which is raw toast.

No, bread is baked = not raw, toast is simply burnt bread

King isn’t the first to raise this question about the familiar yeast product: Tweets from earlier this year reveal it’s been on users’ minds for a while, and an old Reddit post and Yahoo question board debate the terminology as far back as 2010. (Water is also “raw ice,” Reddit notes.)
The related but culinarily incorrect term “raw bread” has even been an Urban Dictionary entry for “uncooked toast” since 2014.
New or not, we find “raw toast” highly entertaining. Thanks to King for heating up the discussion once again.
