Default Way weird & I enjoy peanut butter!

I came across this peanut butter today, and I'm laughing at the concept. Are peeps too lazy to spoon out a tablespoon of peanut butter? I'm sure it's geared towards kids, but still it looks way weird and kinda gross. Sorry if this is a staple to anybody!

Seriously, I find this R-I-D-I-C-U-L-O-U-S!
Here's a link to see what I am talking about...

LMAO thats great! hahaha. I thought i was going to be the tubes. I actaully think those are a good idea to eat pb on the run. I know i love to just eat pb off the spoon. But hmmm packages like american cheese? That scares me a little bit.

This was a quote from the page
Quote:
I guess for the really lazy, you can slap a slice of PB on some bread, then throw on a fruit roll-up in place of the jelly.
That made me laugh. But really what kind of presservatives do you need to put in it so it is that consistency and oesnt stick?

I wonder what's in them if they are true "slices" like American "Cheese?" I look at stuff like that and think of all the packaging and resources that are being wasted. This is definitely not something I would buy.

I've tried a version of these (they had jelly laminated onto the other side of the pb).

The pb was a powdery texture, sort of like the filling in a peanut butter cup, and the jelly side was like a fruit rollup (only slightly softer and slightly less chewy, sort of like the "jelly" in packaged thumbprint jam topped cookies.

Overall, disgusting and very fake. Not to mention they were expensive, and so paper thin that on a typical sandwhich (two slices of bread) mostly the only flavor that comes across is bread. They reminded me of my paternal grandma's pb&j sandwhiches (not a good thing). She was frugal in a crazy way and when she made a pb&j sandwhich for us kids, she'd smear about a tsp of pb on one piece of bread and a tsp of jelly on the other. I remember the jelly being so thin, it barely tinted the bread, and the pb side not being much less transparent. I have no idea how she was able to spread pb that thinly without tearing the bread.

This is the product I tried, which has been discontinued (can't say I'm surprised).

If you look at the packaging of both products it looks like its from the same company

Wow. I just showed that to my hub. He and I are both chuckling at it.

"Please don't bring that home." He said.

I imagine the only thing good about it is exact portion control. Not like it's nutritionally sound anyways,though.

What I'd like to know is, with this salmonella outbreak linked to pb and peanut paste, who makes this stuff? The pb in question was a food-service product, not a retail brand, but how do I know where this company sources their pb? I'll avoid it like the plague in any event and stick to good ole Peanut Butter & Co

LOL, I would have thought it was a spoof.

I once saw 2 boiled eggs packaged up in a snack pack at the supermarket.
