Tag Archives: Peanut Butter

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.

Don’t Touch His Peanut Butter


The Des Moines Register reports that a man got angry after his brother made and ate six peanut butter sandwiches within about an hour. What started as a verbal argument with lots of yelling escalated when the man threatened to use a knife to cut his brother.
