I don't know anybody who PREFERS sunflower seed butter, although I'm sure that weirdo exists somewhere (probably posting in the food threads on Grylliade) but it's a fine plan B if you can't have nuts.
I had never heard of 'sunbutter' before this thread. It sounds like an abomination. Probably Trump/Obama/HClinton/Bush2/BClinton/Bush1/Reagan's fault.

The policy has now been reversed because social media erupted but I have to say...uh...I find it really weird to see people specifically complaining about how kids should be able to have hot lunches, and cold sandwiches are some kind of problem, because I had cold sandwiches for lunch throughout school? Because...hot lunch was fucking gross? Wtf is wrong with eating a cold sandwich for lunch?
I have tried hard to forget about the 'hot lunches' in our school cafeteria. PCSD.

Yeah, it's the lack of choice, and possible visible badge of shame, not the fact that these sandwiches are necessarily worse.

Although the wrong headline fed the issue: a "jelly sandwich" is a terrifyingly inadequate meal.

And those hot lunches were michelin star compared to the shit they serve nowadays.

Ben Shapiro really cannot handle a well prepared interviewer. That BBC interview was brutal and he went off on a conservative Brit (Andrew Neil) by calling him a leftist and trying to get him to admit he was.

The thing that struck me about journalists here vs journalists back home is that if you dodge the question 6 times they will keep calling you on it. In the US they will call you on it once maaaaybe twice and then say, “I disagree, let’s move on.”

I just watched the interview. Holy shit he got a smackdown. Mainly from himself but there were a few damn good jabs at him.

Ok, I agree with Trump on this. The failing NY Times is an abomination.
