Peanutty ? Peanut Butter

Peanutty, but not quite peanut butter

Treehugger pointed out these P.B. Slices as an example of excessive packaging. What they didn’t mention was the ingredients or processing used to make a non-sticky, peanut flavored “food product.”

It’s worth mentioning here that I have a rule about things I find in the supermarket: if it says “food” on the label, you probably shouldn’t eat it. Think about it, start first with the cat food, dog food, and fish food, then take a look at the pasteurized processed cheese food product and some of the goodies in the canned meats aisle.

Anyway, I haven’t tried these, but I’m a little concerned about a product that suggests “peanut butter” but apparently isn’t allowed to label itself as peanut butter. The website lists nutrition facts, but not the ingredients. Hmmmm…“peanutty slices” indeed.

Of course I want to try some; probably just once, though.

  1. “if it says “food” on the label, you probably shouldn’t eat it.”

    Well, of course not… Cat food is what cats eat, dog food is what dogs eat, and cheese food is what cheese eats.

  2. rules are made to be broken. my own rule being, i’ll try any food or food-imposter once (which i have broken on occasion), and consider the ecological/cancer-causing-quotient factors before deciding to partake a second time. i also hang with people for whom the phrase, “this is disgusting” illicits the response, “lemme try!”

    and peanut flavored food products are what the nuts eat.
