I am so into chocolate. Peanut butter too. If I lived on a deserted island and could only have chocolate or peanut butter with me I have no idea which one I’d choose. What a tough choice, now that I think about it.
What do you guys think? Chocolate or good ol’ peanut butter?
I think I’d go with the peanut butter just because if I’m in a situation where I’m on an island then I wouldn’t want to be hungry. Peanut butter would sustain that hunger longer than chocolate would. Plus, it wouldn’t melt in the hot sun. So yeah, peanut butter it is.
Let’s all hope that’s a decision that we never have to make though.
Luckily, today we don’t have to worry about such a thing. Chocolate and peanut butter for all of us; in the form of these choco pb crunch bars. Yay!
