The truth about my obsession with peanut butter

Peanut butter (affectionally referred to in this blog post as PB) is a super food in my opinion. 

Real PB though. Not that rubbish kind with loads of preservatives & sugar, but the one that's just peanuts. I don't have a preference whether it's chunky or smooth (most PB lovers will). When it comes to PB, I don't discriminate. My love for the super food is real.

I decided to write about peanut butter after calling for blog post ideas on my Facebook. Chan from Freyja suggested that I write a post about peanut butter. You may remember her from Look Through My Private Collection - An Amazing Stint in Fernie). I had a kilo jar out in the back the whole time I worked for her. I joked about writing "The truth about my obsession with peanut butter", she thought it was a good idea & here I am. It actually forced me to think about why I love it so much. I have outlined a few reasons below but the truth lies at the end of this blog post. 

1) It tastes good

2) You can add it to sweet or savoury dishes

3) It's filling

4) It might be fatty, but they're all the 'good' fats

5) Great in smoothies

6) Goes with chocolate

THE TRUTH

This song was on repeat throughout my childhood. So the truth is, I was brainwashed through catchy tunes to become obsessed with PB. The addiction isn't my fault! The version we had on repeat wasn't this version. It was a lot more creepy.

Here are the lyrics:

Well there's a food goin round that's a sticky sticky goo
(Peanut, Peanut Butter)
Oh well it tastes so good but it's so hard to chew
(Peanut, Peanut Butter)
All my friends tell me that they dig it the most
(Peanut, Peanut Butter)
Early in the morning when they spread it on toast
(Peanut, Peanut Butter)
I like peanut butter, creamy peanut butter,
chunky peanut butter too.
Peanut, Peanut butter,
Peanut, Peanut butter,
Peanut, Peanut butter,

I like peanut butter, creamy peanut butter,
chunky peanut butter too.
Well I went to a dinner and what did they eat,
(Peanut, Peanut Butter)
I took a big bite and it stuck to my teeth,
(Peanut, Peanut Butter)
Now everybody look like they got the mumps
(Peanut, Peanut Butter)
Eatin peanut butter in-a great big hunks
(Peanut, Peanut Butter)
I like peanut butter,
creamy peanut butter,
chunky peanut butter too.
I like peanut butter,
creamy peanut butter,
chunky peanut butter too.

Who else loves PB? Anyone have any PB stories to share? Are you about the smooth or crunchy? I'm all ears. 

Until next time,
