With eight people we are fortunate to agree on so much of what we do eat. But this is not the case with peanut butter. Two flatmates love their peanut butter to contain sugar and two flatmates lamented that their peanut butter be tarnished in this way. The other half of the flat aren’t fussy enough to care, and are happy enough watching the row unfold. Not surprisingly, it was unanimously decided upon that peanut butter of each sort would be purchased. However, after an extensive search of supermarket shelves was made, sweetened peanut butter could not be found, and so sugarless peanut butter was bought in a double portion. The sweetened peanut butter connoisseurs were horrified to learn that they have to sprinkle sugar on top.
