peanut butter

Post by chelsea »

i want this settled once and for all: creamy or chunky?

chunky peanut butter is a reincarnation of the devil, in my humble opinion.

Chunky is way better. I like my food to have texture. I also like my jelly to have real fruit pieces in it. Nowadays, how do you know what you are getting unless you've got evidence of real food product in there?

Creamy is for making sauces, cookies, and smoothies.

I also like my spaghetti sauce with chunky tomatoes.

Crunchy Peanut Butter & Jam Session

Post by LoveSickJerk »

Chunky!
The first peanut butter had peanuts in it! It was not like this "creamy" junk that goes around today! No Sir! They should be "Original" and "Wussy Textureless Crap". Ranting aside, I pretty much agree with Betty's take on it. I like hearing the crunch of the peanuts with the squish of the fruit jam inside of it.

Speaking of which, if you haven't had the low sugar jam by Smuckers, you're missing out!

Creamy.

Also, juice - no pulp.
Jelly - no real fruit pieces.
That goes for strawberry ice cream, too.
And sauce or salsa with tomato chunks = gross.

And, now that I think about it: milkshakes>ice cream.

I'm a fan of smooth food.

Absolutely Creamy. The only way to go.

But salsa without tomato chunks? That's called soup.

The thing that really gets me (as long as we're talkin food preferences) is raisins-they have no place in a cookie. To put raisins in a cookie is to defile a cookie. After all, a raisin cooked into something is really just a reconstituted grape, and that's gross.

Yeah, I guess I should be more clear: I don't like salsa because it has tomato chunks. I'd just as well use ketchup.

mmm...ketchup.

Superchunk, great band.

Can we talk about the real issue here, Denmark has no peanut butter, creamy, chunky or otherwise. I lived there for six months and the only place to buy the stuff was a delicatessen across the street where they sold a completely unknown brand for 5 dollars a jar, and then were adamant that this was the #1 brand in the Netherlands. Which I could refute with absolute certainty.

Talk about brands, another band visited our town's greatest venue Ekko to comment on the beer, which goes by the name of Brand. Funny Americans, joking about the Brand brand. Of course, this was Colin Meloy doing a great beer commercial impression. And that was not the only reason why this show will be high in my gig-list this year.

Chunky, but mixed with some butter for creamyness, why are my options never in the poll list?

Chunk - especially if it comes with a little fat kid doing the truffle shuffle...

see, i'm weird because i won't touch chunky peanut butter, yet i really like pulp in my orange juice and lemonade. i don't like jam with chunks of fruit, but i don't mind the seeds in it. i love chunky salsa, yet not chunky spaghetti sauce. i don't get it either.

I think the second to last choice is where you belong!

I like the pulp in my OJ, I like chunky salsa, and marinara sauce should have a thickness to almost smooth out the "chunks" or its not made like madre's. However. I detest onions, eggplant and zuccini. Oh and Chinese food too, thanks to [url]Lost Boys[/url].

I would like to add that I hate natural peanut butter. The kind that separates oil and peanut junk. that you have to mix. so gross.

My next band, "The Bastard Raisins", yup. AJ, are you like my soul sistah? I mean, a fisherwoman who hates raisins...it's uncanny.

I agree about the "Natural" BP thing- I don't wanna have to mix my peanut butter! And what's so damned "unnatural" about Skippy, anyway?

My fave peanut butter is the stuff in the middle of a Reeses BP cup...yum.

can I be in your band? soul sistahs and the bastard raisins.

I don't really have a pb preference though. I think creamy is easier to spread. but if I were at someone's house and they were to offer me peanut butter toast, I'd take whatever they had.
