Why Creamy Peanut Butter Is — And Always Will Be — Better Than Chunky

It’s an age old debate which in truth reveals much more about a person than simple taste preference: Creamy or Chunky?

But the way I see it, it isn’t really that much of a debate, and it really has only two possible outcomes. You can either enjoy peanut butter the way it’s meant to be enjoyed (the very valid reasons for which are listed below). Or you can be terribly, terribly wrong.

_______________

Creamy is smooth.

It’s refined.

It’s the kinda nut butter you’d be proud to take home to your parents.

And when it comes to sexy times, you just know it’d be a lot gentler than chunky would, in all the right ways.

And speaking of sexy times, the name “Creamy” just sounds sexier.

Frankly, chunky peanut butter just can’t compare.

It isn’t smooth, it isn’t refined, it isn’t even fully developed.

It’s like someone was in the middle of making perfect, delicious, velvety-smooth butter and then decided—fuggit!–#YOLO

And left all these awful, jagged pieces of peanut lying around.

But the texture is what makes it delicious? Please. I mean, why don’t you just eat plain peanuts if you love the texture so damn much?

Just look at those things.

Or vomit chunks, ew.

And I don’t want them anywhere near my precious peanut butter.

Not to mention the fact chunky peanut butter is super anti-social and terrible at mixers.

Picthx Cooking Whims

Or the completely-verified, completely-scientific fact that creamy is 78% less likely to kill you or break your teeth (probably).

Picthx javcon

Plus, according to this guy, chunky peanut butter is for communists.

creamy

In sum, creamy peanut butter is the best kind of peanut butter, period.

I rest my case. Court dismissed, bring in the dancing bananas.

Rubio’s Fresh Mexican Grill lives up to its name when it comes to their fresh and tasty Mexican ingredients. While I don’t patronize their locations as much as I’d like, I was pleasantly surprised to find that they had bacon on the menu via their  Bacon Garlic Herb Shrimp Tacos. The thought of adding bacon to their garlic herb shrimp was a combination too good to pass up:
