Re: When did peanut butter get so "runny"?

Could be you bought the hydrogenated version that is the "no-stir" kind?

I prefer the Adams natural or whatever it's called. You have to stir it, but it doesn't have the "unnatural" oils in it. Tastes better, too because it's just peanuts and a little bit of salt. Trader Joe's has a good brand as well.

The old one says "smooth", this one says "all natural smooth" and "keep refrigerated for better consistency".

Stop messing with my food!

So...

"I bought a different kind of peanut butter than I used to 10 years ago. Why isn't it the same?"

Nuts are supposed to be the same, regardless of age.

At least that's why my psychologist said.

At least make the label accurate:

"All natural smooth and runny", "keep refrigerated for any consistency whatsoever".

Anyone remember Spielberg/Cruise's War of the Worlds? When that thing came out a whole, "WTF was up with that peanut butter?" meme was all over the internets.

Maybe it got too hot. Peanut butter will get runny if it gets too hot, like in a locked car or a warm pantry.

You bought natural peanut butter, so you need to stir it.

Re: When did peanut butter get so "runny"?

Now this thread makes sense...


Canada’s highest court has just ruled that some sex acts between humans and animals are legal.
In a quixotic ruling, the country’s high court ruled that a man who was on trial for raping and sexually exploiting his own daughters wasn’t guilty of “bestiality.” The man reportedly, “smeared peanut butter on the genitals of his victims and had the family dog lick it off while he videotaped the act.”

The convicted man took his case to the Canadian Supreme Court, demanding that the bestiality charge be nullified. In the end, the court agreed.

As a result of the rape case, the court ruled 7 to 1 that humans having sexual contact with animals is OK if there is no “penetration” involved in the act.

In its ruling, the court decided that the legislature had not clearly defined the terms in the country’s bestiality laws and the way the statute is written should be read to only outlaw animal penetration, whether that penetration is animal to human or vice versa.

“Although bestiality was often subsumed in terms such as sodomy or buggery, penetration was the essence — ‘the defining act’ — of the offense,” the court’s ruling states as reported by The Independent.

The high court’s lone dissenter, though, said the ruling would mean open season for the sexual exploitation of animals.

“Acts with animals that have a sexual purpose are inherently exploitative whether or not penetration occurs,” Justice Rosalie Abella wrote in her dissent.

Animal rights activist Camille Labchuk agreed with Justice Abella. “As of today, Canadian law gives animal abusers license to use animals for their own sexual gratification,” she told the paper. “This is completely unacceptable, contrary to societal expectations, and cannot be allowed to continue.”

The question is a troublesome one here in the U.S. as well, dividing liberals and serving as a watchword to conservatives.

Recently, for instance, animal rights activists in Ohio were rallying for the legislature to make it more explicit that sex between humans and animals is forbidden by state law.

In April, animal advocates were seen protesting at the state capital in Columbus to raise awareness that Ohio has no law outlawing sexual exploitation of animals after a 61-year-old man was arrested for committing sex acts with dogs.

Ohio is one of only eleven U.S. states that don’t have any bestiality laws on the books, advocates say.

The U.S. and Canada are no outliers in having a mixed record when dealing with bestiality. A recent article from the Daily Mail lamented the troubling new trend of “animal brothels” rising in Germany as many humans are claiming sex with animals is just another “lifestyle choice.”

Yep, you gotta make sure to keep your doors unlocked when you have peanut butter in the car.

Re: When did peanut butter get so "runny"?

- I did stir it (because I thought well, that's just oil on top), but it was still runny as hell.

- I did not leave it in the car.

- I don't have kids or a dog.


So... I gather that "all natural" = "runny", or are there exceptions?

Pretty much, yeah. They make peanut butter stiff and thick by adding non-peanut oils, like cottonseed or rape.

Costco has a Kirkland brand that you stir. I have it most Sundays on pancakes or french toast. It's fantastic.

What about dropping it in a gorilla cage?

Can I leave it in the car if I have the AC on and let it listen to Creedence Clearwater Revivial?
