Does anybody do this too? :D I recently just started doing this, I can't believe how much I've been missing out. It's sooooo good.

Except for the calories...

But I'll agree that crunchy is the best!
Calories smalories. 190 calories for 2 TBsp can easily be worked off by 8 hours of web browsing, 20 hours of sleeping, or 1 hour of bouncing around on an exercise ball/desk chair. :)

I am addicted to peanut butter. Could you tell?

USA! USA!
What you need to do is bump into someone with a chocolate bar, so it accidently falls into your peanut butter jar. Serendipity?

Looks like you've got it covered then. :D

When I do go on a peanut butter binge, I prefer to eat it out of the jar with either raw carrot or capsicum (a little strange I know, but it tastes really good!).

I had the peanut butter out this morning when I was making lunches, but I resisted the temptation to sneak a little extra for an "off to a good start" morning snack for myself. I guess that was a foolish act!

I love peanut butter... NATURAL peanut butter, none of that jif or skippy junk.

I get mine from costco, or when money is good, Trader Joe.

I eat so much exactly because it packs so much calories in such a small amount. Oh hell yeah!

Plus it has HEALTHY fat too!

Ooh I love eating peanut butter out of a jar with a fork, chopstick or occasionally, a spoon. Creamy though, not crunchy :p. I hate crunchy peanut butter... i always try to not get the peanuts or pick them out if I'm stuck with the crunchy kind.

It belongs on bread, cant stand licking it off of a spoon, or fork or what not. That being said the crunchy variety is my favorite, along with strawberry jam...

Haha, i dont think Kritter and I would get along well at lunch. My peantbutter is most often, yes, eaten right off of the spoon. The only PB I eat is extra chunky, anyone else?

You guys know those old commercials where the PB would be spread over a big layer of actual peanuts? Yah well I did that last night lol. Needless to say, with the chunky PB, it was waaaayyy to peanutty...i still ate it though :D

Even worse, I mix peanut butter with cottage cheese and eat it as my bedtime snack!

Yummy!

And make chocolate shakes with peanut butter. Delicious beyond imagination.

Hell, I have no idea how I'd live without peanut butter. So yummy and so good for you!

Whoa, I had to look this up to make sure it was what I thought it was. What kind of peppers? :confused:

I always forget you guys call them bell peppers. I normally eat peanut butter with red capsicums - they're sweeter than the green ones.



Ultimately I agree with DoFoT9 though. Vegemite > Peanut Butter. But it can't really be eaten out of the jar, has to be on toast with butter.
