At the risk of alienating all that is good, I have decided to weigh in on a subject that has all the Trader Joe's Hippy masses in a twitter (no, the OLD kind of twitter). I'd like to tell you I am going to talk about Occupy... or Obama... or Oreos?
No, Butter you're getting close.
The age old war between chocolate and peanut butter has found a new stage in this Nutella stuff. I have to tell you when it came out, I thought it was old like Ovaltine. It just sounds like something that was introduced in the sixties on the Howdy Doody show.
That said, I'll take the Peanut Butter any day.
What can make my mouth stick to itself especially when combined with white bread like Wonder? Eh, White Bread? Nothing butter than that.
What when dipped with a spoon and then topped with a few (as many as will stick) chocolate chips gives me satisfaction, yeah THAT Peanut Butter.
What can bring back the childhood memories of a somewhat squished sandwich with grape jelly and the crusts cut off? (Total lie, my mom always made us eat the crusts!) Here is a little known fact, when the bread is cut from corner to corner, as opposed to middle of the side to the middle of the opposite side, you get more sandwich. Ok, I made that up, but it seemed like more bites as a kid, so I figured it was bigger that way.
When arriving upon toast, the PB goes all melty and might actually drip.
On a sandwich alone, Peanut Butter can be combined with :
We make Jimmy Carter smile that 745 tooth smile whenever we eat it. Who could hate that smile?
Jelly (Grape, Strawberry, Blueberry, do NOT try the Kentucky Jelly)
Cream Cheese, don't ask...one of my dad's favorites.
Bananas all mashed up.
I'm ok on Nutella, it tastes a little to Hazelnutty for me, but as a compliment to the P to the Butter, sure. Honestly, I feel a little guilty pleasure eating it, as if I was having ice cream for lunch. I have given myself some new ideas to try and perhaps I will move Nutella up accordingly in the rankings.
It just won't ever replace it. Sorry Rusty! Don't be Bitter, just say Butter.
Nutella on Banana Bread?
Nutella on Grape Nuts cereal?
Nutella on Oatmeal Cookies?
