(NYPost)   Don't you hate it when you're vacationing in Puerto Rico and your child tries Jif peanut butter for the first time and likes it more than the organic peanut butter you get at Whole Foods so you lie to him and say you can only get Jif in Puerto Rico?   ( nypost.com) divider line

zarker: What the hell is everyone talking about with this "stirring" nonsense? Just get some God dammed Skippy and call it a day already.

We like the Skippy Natural - not organic, but don't feel guilty feeding it to the little man.

70Ford: Maybe all plants have the taste of poop.

You got that right.

But on a related note. Natural peanut butter belongs on a shelf in hell with skim milk.

I buy organic milk and eggs simply because of all the shiat doctors put us through when  we hadkids. Don't do this. It gets into the baby. Don't do that, it gets into the milk. I assume the same holds true for cows and shiat.

Mister Peejay: Perhaps metabolism is not the right word. Certainly I have noticed a trend toward requiring more moderation, fortunately, this is kind of a self-enforcing thing.

Unfortunately, if it actually was self-enforcing, we wouldn't have 250-300 lb fatasses being a common sight and 600-1000 being known. This kind of correction only happens if you give something up for other reasons first, and the body's tolerance for it slowly disappears. In particular, humans stop producing lactase in the absence of lactose, so dairy intolerance skyrockets as soon as you quit dairy. It takes weeks of consuming it to produce enough again and rebuild tolerance, and it'll never be as high as a child's. Same deal with alcohol and liver alcoholase.

They also have an organic version, but this one is great. Soooo damn creamy.  Only ingredient: peanuts.

That's the problem. I don't want smashed peanuts. I want peanut butter. Needs some additives.

I'm not sure about Jif, but I think Skippy is supposed to be all right. I think they use cane sugar and honey to sweeten it instead of HFCS. Of course all these products have partially hydrogenated vegetable oil in them, so I don't bother with 'em as staples around the house... really they need to develop better/stable preservatives.

I mean, if you're totally watching your sugar - then it's not a great thing to eat, but if you're worried about just not eating garbage and trying to stick with "natural" ingredients (not a bad thing really) then I think that's the score.

The most important takeaway from all this: making sure other parents know that you're better than they are.

That's why you pay more. The "health" benefits are just small bonus.
