Peanut Butter and Camembert.
No wait…I meant three…...wine....oh yes....and bread.
|Kraft is my preferred brand.|
As it turns out, they’ll soon all be approximately the same price. I read that the cost of peanut butter is going to rise 35-40% due to poor peanut crops last year. This may sound strange, but I never even thought of peanuts as growing. Peanut bushes? Peanut trees? All I know is that if it hadn’t been for peanuts I would have died of starvation a long time ago. I also like peanut brittle, peanut butter cups, peanut butter cookies, peanut sauce (on Chinese dumplings) and peanuts themselves. So….will I pay more for peanut butter? Yes. If that’s what it costs, that’s what it costs. Even with a hefty hike, it’s still cheaper than most things in life (and apparently full of protein although I’ve never seen any in the jars I bought).
When in Paris, Camembert is my equivalent to peanut butter. (Mon Dieu)! It's about $10.00 here for a small chunk of that delicious cheese, but in France it's a staple. Camembert and a baguette. Oh yes, and wine. Wine and cheese are pretty inexpensive in France so don't roll your eyes and tell me I'm being extravagant!
Bread varies in price. With enough peanut butter, Camembert and wine, you won’t taste the bread anyway so here's where you can save a few cents!
By the way, you can make your own peanut butter. Please note I say "you", not "me" :)
