...The Dumbest Product Ever. After watching an episode of Unwrapped on Food Network tonight, I bring you:
P.B. Slices ('The Funner Peanut Butter")
Yes, you read that correctly: slices of peanut butter. Think cheese slices - but it's not - it's Peanut Butter! They are supposed to save you time (I think) when making a PB&J for your kid in the morning.
What a genius idea, considering how unruly spreading peanut butter with a knife can be. I wont even go into the fact that this is an environmental nightmare. And it's a tad suspicious that they don't actually list the ingredients on the site. Is it just peanuts? What else is in there?
I'm not one of those folks who want peanut butter outlawed, banned, and not manufactured, and I understand that there is always room for product innovation. I've seen the little tubes of PB that athletes eat while they are training - that makes sense! But this is ridiculous. Will mayo be next? And after looking at their website, it looks like they are endorsing putting these on hot dogs - something I just can't get behind. Good Lord!
But then again, maybe this is the 'peanut butter for a new generation'! Maybe the naysayers said this about Kraft Singles? I use the Tillamook kind that isn't individually wrapped, so I wouldn't know.
I could be wrong - maybe these things will catch on (and God Bless the entrepreneur in the inventor of the much needed (?) PB Slice) but even if Bella grows out of her PA, you can bet your life I wont be buying these. My 'Californian Tree Hugger' membership would be revoked.
