Just a quick thought about ~

My husband bought peanut butter chocolate fudge this morning. I like fudge, 100% sugar and yummy. Thing is I’m not crazy about peanut butter. I don’t  particularly dislike peanut butter but neither is it my first choice in anything. 

My husband, on the other hand, really likes peanut butter. It must be Skippy and it must be creamy. He eats peanut butter and cream cheese; peanut butter, cream cheese and jelly, and even, don’t gag, peanut butter and mayonnaise. Ok, gag, I know I just did.

The flavors were in layers so easy enough to cut them apart – the chocolate for me, the peanut butter for my husband. Win-win.

Thing is, peanut butter is ubiquitous. I try to find protein or energy bars to have as a snack and they are all some combination of peanut butter and…Why? Is there nothing else on the planet that can be turned into a snack bar?

When I was having a massive dental makeover (not because I wanted to but because I had to) and had no teeth at all for 6 months, peanut butter on low-carb bread was my basic diet – for six months! Even had I been a peanut butter fan I think that might have put me off peanut butter for the rest of my life. 

Anyone else not a peanut butter fan?

  1. We love peanut butter! I have not yet tried Nutella? What’s your thoughts on that? I’m a huge hazlenut fan when it comes to coffee so it’s been on my list to try for some time now.

  2. Sorry. I am a fan. Here's what I used to do when I packed my own lunch for work. PB & J topped with a nice slice of sharp cheddar. Perhaps George would like this twist on his favorite.

  3. I love peanut butter and chocolate but not so much peanut butter by itself. J loves it both ways. I have switched to nut butter since peanuts aren't even nuts! Not all nut butters are the same though (some taste awful!) but my favorite is Cinnamon Snickerdoodle made by Ground Up PDX. I can eat that stuff by the spoonful! I'm now craving peanut butter and chocolate though. Lol!

  4. Nutella is the DEVIL. It is EVIL. Possibly the most gross stuff I have ever put in my mouth LOL Why Italians seem so enamored of hazelnuts I have no idea!

  5. Peanut butter, jelly and cheese? Oh no, no, no! I'll run that past George and see what he says. Gross sandwich combos are a specialty of his, so who knows. Tho I have to tell you he is not a jelly fan.

  6. Yes, See's peanut butter patties – your fav! I tried almond butter because it's supposed to be healthier for you than peanut butter – it was ugly (and expensive) and went in the trash right quick. I won't be trying any others – the texture is VERY off-putting.

  7. I love peanut butter. Don't gag, but I can sit with the jar and a spoon and just eat it that way…lolTo answer your question from my blog, the designs are pre done. You just stick the numbered gems down in the corresponding spots.
