I've always though 'savory' involved spices.


That was more like what I was thinking. I know sweet, salty, sour and bitter. I thought savory was another in this line. "Like steak" sounds like a good definition.

^I think umami (no really) is the word you're looking for, something to do with monosodium glutamate.

Anyway, I did mean non-sweet in a salty kinda way. Not like steak :P.

Edit: Unless, of course, you like your steak salty.

that looks like the stuff that came out of tubgirls ass

for a long time i was the only one in my family who liked creamy peanutbutter.. probably because i'm the youngest...

but recently i've come to enjoy crunchy over creamy.. i'll still take creamy, and certainly whenever i make a pb&chocochip sandwich i'll use creamy...

the peanuts were just too weird for me when i was a kid but now i kind of like the texture

Multi-layer sandwiches

Make a Peanut Butter and Jam (bitches!) sandwich, then place the whole thing under a grill until ready.


Also, Skippy Blue Peanut Butter is made of win and more win.

Yeah! I used to know that word, but couldn't remember it. I think we're all clear now. Conversation may move forward in an unsavory manner.

Of course I like my steak salty. And never with peanut butter.

Don't forget the green and purple ketchups. I was glad when that fad passed.

I had this exact same progression.

And then I progressed one step further when I found out the farmer's market sells *Honey Jam*. It's just jellied honey for ease of spreading. This is the new face of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

If you can't come up with any, I do have a growing list of things I need to mail people when I both a) have time to do so, and b) don't randomly forget.

To get more specific, I definitely have to go with the crunchy, salted natural peanut butter (bitches!).

I think the salt complements the flavor of the peanut butter nicely, and as a runner I need a fair amount of salt in my diet anyway.

Also, I don't think I've tried cashew butter... I tried soy-nut butter and thought it was interesting but it wasn't something I'd eat regularly. I'm pretty sure there is cashew butter at my Trader Joe's, so maybe I'll get some in my Last Grocery Trip Ever In California (hopefully)!

If you're gonna use 'bitches!', at least say it with conviction!
None of this small-text crap.

I speak softly and carry a large stick.

Covered in delicious, sticky, oily, crunchy, salty peanut butter.

For your thwacking enjoyment

Celery. Pretzels with salted PB are just *too* salty.

After tabulating the results, I have come up with:
Creamy - 20 people
Chunky/Crunchy - 19 people

If they didn't care for one part (toast) but did care for another (cooking) I placed them on the side they preferred.

Of course, the chunky/crunchy side has more posts than the creamy side.

(And I'm for Chunky as well...)

It doesn't ruin them both, that's why.

And most people need either caffeine or peanut butter in their morning routine.

Hmmmm. On reflection, I did practically live on peanut butter at school... but that doesn't change that it was creamy.

nutella is better by itself, it's a complete spread, whereas penutbutter needs something to complete itself.

nutella just isn't terribly good on bread. And peanut butter doesn't *need* jelly, it's just *better* with jelly.
