Peanut butter? No thanks. I prefer cookie butter.

Peanut butter is popular in the United States. It is everywhere. Plastic tubs of the stuff. For most American kids PB&J, peanut butter and jelly, sandwiches are a staple of childhood.

I, however, did not like it, and my parents, thankfully, somehow avoided the PB&J stereotype. We ate other stuff instead.

One such staple in our family for years was dry milk, which I think is disgusting. These days I only use dry milk for cooking and baking.

My hatred of peanut butter has waned. I will eat a PB&J sandwich occasionally and spread peanut butter on celery. But other than that I don’t eat much of it.

A few weeks back I found a tub of cookie butter mixed in with a horde of peanut butter. These tubs were the same size, shape, and with red lids, so it was understandable to have a mix up.

This particular cookie butter, brand name Lotus and made from Biscoff cookies, is from Belgium. And it is tasty.
