Y’all. I don’t know how it got to be Wednesday night so FAST! Seriously. Where does the time go? It’s crazy. Just crazy I tell you! I’d say it’s high time I answered a new question, wouldn’t you? Here we go!
What are the pros and cons to crunchy and smooth peanut butter?
Perfect timing on this one. I’ve been making a lot of pro/con lists lately. I’ve also been enjoying a lot of peanut butter lately, and as far as I’m concerned, smooth peanut butter is only good for one thing, and that is making fillings. Like pie fillings, not like cavity-in-your-teeth fillings. Peanut butter-filled pretzels, Buckeye Balls, Buckeye Pie, peanut butter cups, and the like – they all need smooth peanut butter. But for everything else, I say go crunchy or go home.
A PB&J with smooth PB is just plain boring. The peanut chunks add the perfect texture to offset the goo texture of the jelly and the soft fluffiness of the bread. The chunks also give you something to chew on rather than just smacking at the peanut butter like a dog. I do not wish to resemble a dog in any way. Except maybe in loyalty. But don’t expect me to wag my tail or play fetch.
Ok maybe I might wag my tail, but only if Marvin Gaye is playing, and then I’d rather call it “sexy swaying.”
