    Is it "unpopular" to add chopped or shredded romaine lettuce to a hot soup?

    I think I finally pinpointed why I'm adverse to nut butters like almond and cashew... because there are no chunky varieties! Why is there chunky PB but no chunky cashew butter??

    Omgosh right??? I lovd cashew but want a crunchy!!

    There are a lot of brands that have crunchy almond butter but these are my favorites. Wegmans brand is cheap and really good. It tastes like freshly ground and is really chunky. muixqp03qodb.png
    Trader joes is also pretty good and similar to wegmans. Barney butter has the smooth texture of peanut butter but with almond chunks in it. (The others have more of the freshly ground gritty almond butter texture as a base)

    and Target brand sells it too, but I've never tried theirs. 0ze05nyc8i6h.png

    One to avoid is maranatha. I don't know why, but it is just really stiff and thick and not very good. 5uaafv1i6kfc.png

    I want a cashew or almond with chunks like peanut butter with no added oil, sugar or flavors, etc. Salt and nuts.

    Plain m&ms are boring and not that good.

    *gasp*!

    I like them most because you get more bang for your buck.

    I will join the 'anti' plain m&m camp....there are SOOO many other things I'd have before these. They really are not worth the calories...the chocolate is just not good at all imo...

    Oh man, I'll even eat 99 cent store chocolate.

    A client brought us 3 big boxes of godiva chocolate today. My boss handed me one of the boxes and I thought I really hope he knows I'm not sharing this. :)

    Agreed. But peanut M&Ms are good.

    The best part of cucumber tastes like the worst part of watermelon.
