O.K. actually the jar of peanut butter that I bought said: “warning, contains peanuts”.Well, I threw caution to the wind and bought it anyway. Because all nut butters are ambrosia. I never tire of them. But I wonder why anyone would choose creamy over crunchy, ever, even for variety. No.
Look creamy’s alright, but crunchy is 60% better. Unless someone can convince me otherwise.
Also, pb is wonderful but all other nut butters are better, with the exception of macadamia nut butter, which is also wonderful but more of a dessert nut butter.
finally, is there a land mammal that wouldn’t eat peanut butter? Possibly horses or sheep? I bet even cats eat pb.Sep 24, 2017 at 5:44 pm #3492995
My peanut butter jar has the same warning, I pointed that out to my wife just the other day.Sep 24, 2017 at 6:46 pm #3492998

You might have too fancy of peanut butter. Jif doesn’t appear to have that warning. Plus, sugar is the second ingredient and molasses the third.Sep 24, 2017 at 7:38 pm #3493007
Jif doesn’t appear to have that warning
I had a look; you are correct, no warning.Sep 24, 2017 at 10:21 pm #3493030

I would go to the store to look at a jar of Skippy, but I’m afraid to find out what that means in Australian.Sep 24, 2017 at 10:38 pm #3493032

But is it gluten free?Sep 24, 2017 at 10:39 pm #3493033
Doesn’t cleaning with peanut butter attract koala bears? You should keep that stuff in a canister.Sep 24, 2017 at 11:51 pm #3493039
Oh for goodness sake, koalas are not a bear , they are a fish.
Anyway , about Skippy, don’t you have kangaroo spread in a bottle there ?
Would you like some ?
(no it does not taste like chicken nor contains nuts. Actually , it may contain nuts, sorry about that )

I used to prefer crunchy, but I’ve switched to creamy
I think it has something to do with better to make cookies, but that makes no sense because I then chop up peanuts to put in them..Sep 25, 2017 at 9:37 am #3493074
Franco, as an experiment, try leaving crunchy and creamy peanut butter out for the kangaroos and see which one they eat. My money’s on crunchy.
But none of that stuff that has molasses (!!!) and sugar and vegetable oil in it. I’m sorry but that’s not nut butter. Nuts, salt—period,
that said, the fact that any mammal (well maybe not horses)–or marsupial–will eat nut butter must say something. Dogs won’t eat broccoli, for example.Sep 25, 2017 at 10:31 am #3493086
My peanut butter contains peanuts. Okay, a bit of salt too,
No warning that it contains peanuts. It does say gluten free, and also no GMOSep 25, 2017 at 10:36 am #3493087
Adams is da bomb. That’s what I mean, nuts and salt. Hippy nut butter.Sep 25, 2017 at 7:14 pm #3493189
My roos are extremely well behaved , so far.
So I am not about to start feeding them because it changes the game then.
I will have to try the Great Peanut Experiment with the echidna, when I can spot it.
(elusive little buggar that is, I can only see it when it moves …)
Here is Elsie making sure she does not damage my daffies :

since they have names they must be pets
do they sleep with you?Sep 25, 2017 at 9:23 pm #3493212

Thanks for the teaching. I didn’t know what these were.Sep 25, 2017 at 9:24 pm #3493213
Are you echidna me? These things can’t be for real:
“Echidnas, sometimes known as spiny anteaters, belong to the family Tachyglossidae in the monotreme order of egg-laying mammals.”
Egg laying mammals? I don’t dare ask if you scramble them for breakfast. And speaking of scrambled, Australia seems to be where reptiles, mammals and birds still haven’t sorted themselves out. Or they’re all jumbled together. It’s one big hip hop party.
Maybe those things won’t eat peanut butter after all.
edit: the daryls got there seconds before me.

Franco, when I did a lengthy tour of Oz 10 years ago I saw a lot of dead echidnas on the side of the road. Lots of them in Tasmania and along the east coast. None in the red center around Alice, and I don’t think I saw one around Perth or Margaret River. It reminded me of the road-kill armadillos in north Texas. So since the echidnas seem to be victims of their own misguided nocturnal behavior, are you folks considering placing them on the endangered species list? Or do you just take them in and cheer them up with peanut butter and call it good? Lovable little critters, they are. I like the way they scurry about.Sep 27, 2017 at 10:23 pm #3493623
You need to take a big breath for this one.
The latest estimate is of over 30.000 roadkills per day in Australia.
Most are kangaroos, then wallabies, possums, wombats and dogs (feral and dingos)
Echidnas are down on that list.
Their numbers is apparently increasing but because they are hard to spot in the wild no one knows even an approximate number .
