I understand that it's a thing. I don't think pb is a great implementation in most cases. Give me textural contrast like choco covered nuts.

My wife is obsessed with sweet salty and has adopted the freaky habit of grapes and pretzels together in volume.

Although I think in my case it is a matter of supertasting pb. If there’s peanut butter within nose shot of me, eating chocolate or vanilla will create a combined taste in my mouth that is a lot like shit smells. True of all peanuts, really. I made no bake cookies while the snack grunt was in town on Xmas leave. Tried to eat a puff pastry with a vanilla filling and it was ruined. Just from being in the kitchen with cookies that contained pb.

LOL about the Skittles thing.

A friend of mine was so excited that they were bringing back the lime-flavored green ones, that he went and ordered three or four dozen bags. But he misread the size/weight and ended up with 42 lbs. of 'em.

Didn't he find the price a little expensive when he made the order?

The article? Sure. But ZZ Top is properly described as being born out the ashes of Moving Sidewalks.

TIL that it's genetically impossible for whales to have evolved from leg-having ancestors, millions of scientists are signing a petition to stop the teaching of evolution and evolution isn't real because Nazis wanted to kill all the Jews. Alternately, I met a moron at the museum.

I loved this so much I tried to make it my sig, but it sadly has too many characters to fit in the sig space.

Still, if it really is the thought that counts... SIGGED!
