National Peanut Butter Day - January 24th

It's National Peanut Butter Day today! It should be no surprise that we are peanut butter fans.

Today for lunch, we made sure to include a lot of peanut butter. To start, we're having peanut butter and strawberry jelly sandwiches on Hawaiian rolls.
When I said it was peanut butter day, both kids immediately thought of apples and peanut butter. Definitely having those too.
And finally, there's the delicious Trader Joe's Peanut Butter filled pretzels. There's a reason I don't keep these in the house. They would disappear way too quickly.

A Korean Snack Taste Test

Uncle Jacob went to Korea and he brought back snacks! Knowing how much we enjoy doing taste tests, he brought us some interesting treats!

There's a Crown Kicker bar, a Haitai Freetime bar, and a Nongshim Banana Kick puffs.

Reese's Puffs BIG Puffs Cereal

You might think that after that last taste test with 53 different Reese's things, we might be tired of Reese's. You'd be wrong.
I already think that Reese's Puffs are one of the best cereals out there. GM has a new one similar to it with even bigger Puffs.

And wow, look at those things. They're as big as cheese balls!

Our biggest taste test ever! 53 different Reese's Peanut Butter items!

Theresa - With all the family coming for Thanksgiving and Christmas, we should do another big taste test. Like we did with the M&Ms.
Joe - Great idea! Any thoughts on what we should do?
Theresa - What about Reese's?

Lovely! I wonder how many different kinds there are?
So starting in early September, Theresa and I started getting every different kind of Reese's product we could find. And let me tell you, there were a whole bunch of them. It was easy enough to find the regular stuff. I think one run to CVS I was able to find over 20 unique items. And you'd be surprised by the variety a local 7/11 has too.
Because we started collecting things before Halloween, there were Halloween specific Reese's items. And then as soon as the Halloween things left the shelves, Christmas items followed.

And so, here we are at 53 unique Reese's items. It's our biggest taste test ever.
Is this every Reese's item? No. I know there's a Reese's pie, Reese's brownies, baking chips, coffee creamer, and a few others that I either couldn't find or didn't think "fit".

Twix Popcorn taste test

On a recent trip to Sams Club, I found a giant bag of popcorn that looked perfect for a taste test. It's Twix Popcorn!

Today we'll be tasting it along side a regular Twix Bar. It's the superior Left Side Twix, which are clearly better than the stuff coming out of the Right Twix factory.

Roasted Turkey Pringles

Time for a taste test! Any time Pringles comes out with something interesting, I like to give them a taste. These Roasted Turkey Pringles have been around since Thanksgiving, and we tasted them as part of our 19 different Pringle taste test. Now it's time to taste them by themselves.

And like usual, we'll taste them with what it's supposed to represent. In this case, Hillshire Farms Naturals Oven Roasted Turkey Breast.
