The California Raisins are a fictional rhythm and blues musical group created in 1987 as a promotional gimmick for Sun-Maid Raisins by the California Raisin Advisory Board.The commercials utilized claymation to deliver performances by anthropomorphized raisins, which gained enough popularity to produce merchandise and promotion through Hardee’s Cinnamon ‘N’ Raisin biscuits and Post Raisin Bran cereal.  "A.C." was the name of the raisin who sang lead vocals for the fictional group, voiced by Buddy Miles.
