Alicia has always chided me about my choice of peanut butter. Her peanut butter has peanuts in it. And maybe some salt. That's all. Mine? Here is the ingredient list:
"Made from peanut butter--
As a side note, it's probably a bad thing when the product states that it's made from the product it's actually supposed to be, right?
"(Roasted peanuts and sugar, contains 2% or less of: molasses, fully hydrogenated vegetable oils (rapeseed and soybean), mono and diglycerides, salt), honey, sugar."
I think fully-hydrogenated oils are less bad than partially-hydrogenated ones, but I really don't know. What the heck is rapeseed oil?! BUT it tastes just marvelous. I love the hint of honey. Seems worth the rapeseed oil(?) to me. Yum.
Last night I went to the grocery store, and I saw this on the shelf:
It grabbed my attention, so I bought it. It was only a few cents more expensive than the kind I normally buy. And for good measure, I bought a jar of the chunky, non-honey kind for my hubs. When I got home, I took a spoon and marched over to Alicia's house. I wanted her to see my reaction to what was probably not going to taste very good.
But you know what? I like it! And it only has four ingredients: peanuts, honey, sugar, salt. Nice!
I will say, though, that like most natural peanut butter, the oil separates at the top. When trying to mix it all together, I splashed it all over my shirt. Even an instant spray-and-wash application and thorough washing in cold water couldn't save the shirt. So sad! But I do thank God that I decided to wear an older Target sweater yesterday instead of a newer TH one. I would've been really sad if I had ruined a new sweater!
So that's my product recommendation for the day: yummy peanut butter with an ingredient list about which you don't have to be skeptical. Tomorrow I'll tell you all about a $180 coat that I got at Macy's yesterday for 78% off!
