Chocolate Peanut Butter

Chocolate flows in deep, dark, secret waves, a river to ignite my mind and alert my senses...

There exists a fathomless chasm within me that yearns to be filled with two things: chocolate and peanut butter. I discovered an ideal satiation (transient, of course) of this desire yesterday.

Chocolate peanut butter.

One of the nut grinders at Whole Foods contains both peanuts and chocolate. It comes oozing out untainted by any other foreign, unwelcome ingredients in all its nectarous splendor. I grabbed a tablespoon of it to munch on as I finished up my grocery shopping, and then stopped back for a small tub of it to bring home.

Last night, I slathered it on Golden Delicious apples. Today, it served as an adhesive for my bananas on my open faced sandwich....

Man cannot live by bread alone; he must have peanut butter...

Nice "can't live on bread alone," but I think that was actually about something else... ;-p Oh, and by the way, I was eating Jif today and thought about how much I love those hydrogenated oils and sugar and preservatives...I figure, if they keep peanut butter fresher and last longer, then perhaps my freshness will last as well. Okay, maybe not so much, but you really are beginning to make me a believer of the goodness found in, how you say, "healthy food."

I don't have a Whole Foods near where I live, but I like to either add flavorings into natural peanut butter, or buy PB Loco occasionally. Their Jungle Banana is really good! And graham crackers just wouldn't be the same without peanut butter.
