I’m not dealing with this. This is just an all-time lazybones act that I want absolutely nothing to do with. Guys, really? Peanut butter slices? Why are they doing this to us? If they get rid of peanut butter in the jar, what will butter knives be used for? I can imagine that they’d be quite bitter after this blatant display of disrespect. In my house I have no need for a butter knife except for the spreading of the peanut butter. Why? Because I refuse to use the knife for things like butter. Who
does this? Are you people really out there using the knives for butter? That’s dumb. Dare to be different.
I’m just saying. My butter knife serves other purposes other than the boring buttering of my biscuits. I got spoons for that or steak knives. Duh! Also, I’ve used my butter knife as a screwdriver of sorts because I’m a lady and I know how to improvise. And what makes them think they know how I like my peanut butter? I like it thick, but not too thick where I’m choking to death, but just enough to give me a slight gag reflex. Keep in mind I’m talking about peanut butter. Also, how will this work? Will it be wrapped like sliced cheese regardless? And what consistency will it be? How will they handle the nuts? What if I like really creamy?
This is too much for me to deal with right now.

The days of the perfect peanut butter sandwich may be here.
Pre-sliced peanut butter is on its way to U.S. store shelves in test markets, food researchers from Oklahoma State University said Monday.
The new form of peanut butter, which will come in individually wrapped plastic sheets, is the product of more than three years of intense research, and 500 different formulas.
“It looked good, it tasted good. We were excited,” said William McGlynn, part of the team at Oklahoma State that worked on the project. “Their biggest hurdle was to get the peanut butter so it wouldn’t stick to the wrap. But don’t ask them how they did that.”
The peanut butter comes individually wrapped in plastic sheets, like sliced cheese. A package of 16 one-ounce slices is expected to cost about $2.50 and start selling soon in Wal-Mart stores in Oklahoma and the Dallas-Fort Worth area, McGlynn said.
“The kids can make their own peanut butter sandwiches without making a mess. It’s all about convenience.”
Institutional customers, such as school cafeterias, also have expressed interest in uniform portions, he added. Only creamy peanut butter will be available at first, but McGlynn said researchers were hard at work on crunchy slices.
