It only tastes good with jelly.

Of the options shown in the ad, I agree. But it's quite delicious with honey, and in stew, and in satay dipping sauce. :P

Love the Rockwell, as always.

But...but... that first one. I've had most of those permutations. But pickle relish? *gah* I might need to try that just to confirm its grossness.

Spread Skippy between cheddar cheese squares, fasten with toothpick.

Skippy and deviled ham.

And above all, cooties SKOOTIES - Skippy with chili sauce...


I think this is conclusive evidence that the Skippy test kitchen was run by stoners. "OMG you guys this is SO GOOD!"

Actually, chili sauce might be Sri Racha hot sauce and EVERYTHING is good with that on it.

You've probably seen this, but in case you haven't . . .


I was about to snark about the idea of peanut butter and chicken when the words "Thai food" popped into my mind. Some of those appetizers look pretty scary, though. Do I see Skippy sushi at 5 o'clock?

Keep the Skippy, but may I pretty please have the three-level sandwich/cake plate?

Seriously, keep the Skippy. And Jif, Peter Pan, etc. Peanut butter with additives & stabilizers gives me hideous heartburn. If the ingredients list doesn't stop after "peanuts, salt" I can't eat it.

If it doesn't stop after "peanuts, salt" I don't want it. Unless the ingredients are "chocolate, peanuts."

Up this way, people eat their peanut butter with Fluff.

Which, by the way, is awful. ;)

I never understood that combo. I always thought peanut butter was paired with things that cut the stickiness and allowed you to get it down (my mom, for instance, loves hers with Miracle Whip!) but Fluff would be sticky + sticky. Gag.

I'm not big into fluff, but man, put a marshmallow on a fork and dip it in peanut butter. SOOOO NIIIIICE. Sometimes, overload IS the point. ;)

This ad made me start thinking about my aunt's peanut butter fudge. *wishes she had some fudge, now*

If the ads were for mothers, why the jars are designed to appeal to children? Did the mothers let the kids choose the brand?
