Our latest #Chooseday comp was one of curiosity. We wanted to see how you eat your peanut butter (or if you eat it at all). If you’re like us, and we’re sure you are, you love peanuts and everything peanut flavoured. That’s why peanut butter is so amazing, smooth or crunchy, it’s truly to die for.
195 people joined in to tell us their favourite way to enjoy peanut butter – but what were the results?
Only three people said they enjoyed peanut butter on their breakfast. Over the years, peanut butter has been used in a range of mysterious and interesting ways and some people love it this way. One of the weirdest we’ve heard is Peanut Butter Eggs Benedict. Weird or wonderful? You tell us!
20 people said they didn’t like peanut butter at all – how sad! We couldn’t imagine a life without peanut butter on EVERYTHING. Have you heard of the many health benefits of eating it? Research shows that eating peanuts can decrease your risk of heart disease, diabetes, and other chronic health conditions. Healthy and delicious!
39 people said that they eat Peanut Butter straight from the jar. We must admit that we’re guilty of this too! It’s hard to resist and we can’t help but grab a spoon when we’re feeling a little peckish – yummy!
A whopping 109 people said their favourite was peanut butter on toast. We feel you – it’s amazing! Peanut butter on toast is the best treat, any time of the day. It’s no wonder that this was the most favoured way to enjoy peanut butter.
One of the choices was enjoying a Peanut Hottie. We don’t blame you if you voted for this, we’re pretty good. Peanut Hottie is delicious and only 83 calories – what more could you want? We feel like more people would of voted for Peanut Hottie if they knew that it can be used in recipes. OMG – WHAT?
Yeah, we’re not joking. We have a whole page dedicated to recipes and it’s forever growing with people all over creating amazing recipes for us to share. From oats to cake and brownies to pizza, we’ve got it covered. Take a look and tell us what you think!
Now we are well and truly in to winter, we are already witnessing Christmas related nutty news this week.
Here are a couple of stories that have caught our eye.
A 76 year old, road kill enthusiast from Cornwall, has stated that he will be replacing a Turkey dinner for a more unusual choice, Dolphin! Eccentric Arthur Boyt found the dolphin washed up on a beach near his house, and thought it would be a fitting accompaniment to his sprouts this Christmas dinner. Last year Arthur tucked in to badger casserole. What do you think? Brave or just nuts?!
In other news, a woman has sent her cat an advent calendar in the post, but the cat isn’t able to collect it as it doesn’t have ID! As no one was in to sign for the parcel that was addressed to the cat, it was carted off to the local post office who are stating they need to see proof of identification before releasing the gift. Oh dear, we hope this furry feline receives his calendar soon as, he is already 11 days behind!
Finally, sprouts. The vegetable that divides the nation on Christmas day, do we love them or hate them? If it is the latter, you should try pickling them! In the run up to Christmas, newspapers are posting all sorts of recipes to help out their readers, this week we have seen ‘how-to’ pickle sprouts. Like the sound of this? With sprouts growing up to the size of golf balls this year, why don’t you try it and let us know. Rather you than us!
That is all for nutty news this week, let us know what Christmas nuttiness you’ve been up to!
