I finished the last four Jacob's Ladder blocks and put them up on my design wall. The blocks were in a better arrangement until they started falling off the wall.... so I pinned them back up in a semblance of the arrangement I had at first.

So, when the grandbabies were visiting last weekend, I got a jar of peanut butter... what I thought was a jar of peanut butter, that is.
It was in the peanut butter section... and I picked the "reduced fat" because I like to pretend that peanut butter can be "healthier"... see that big, bold "REDUCED FAT" on the label?
Do you see what is printed in a much smaller font on the label right beside the Peter Pan brand name???
Yes! It's not peanut butter... it's peanut SPREAD! And right below the "peanut spread," in even smaller font, it says: 60% peanuts! Yes! ONLY 60% peanuts! So, just what is in this so-called "peanut spread?"
Ingredients list from the label: Roasted peanuts, corn syrup solids*, soy protein concentrate*, sugar, less than 2% of: hydrogenated vegetable oils (cottonseed and rapeseed), salt, minerals (magnesium oxide, zinc oxide, iron phosphate, copper sulfate), and vitamins (niacin, vitamin B6, folic acid). CONTAINS: peanuts, soy.
See the little asterisk (*) beside the second and third ingredients? The label addresses that:
* Ingredients not in regular peanut butter.
So... just when (and WHY?) did someone start messing with my peanut butter???
If I wanted "corn syrup solids" and "soy protein concentrate," I would have had those on my shopping list!
You can barely tell there are peanuts in this stuff at all!
Who would have thought we've have to start reading labels on peanut butter?
