This is not an advertisement for Chick-O-Stick candy, but for something I found at the local “health food” store, peanut butter.

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve had a love affair with peanut butter — PB&J sandwiches, peanut butter on celery or carrots or apple slices or bananas, peanut butter on pasta, peanut butter on chocolate, peanut butter ice cream, peanut butter on pancakes.  Chico-O-Sticks were always my favorite candy, because they were flavored with peanut butter.

So, yesterday I stopped at the local “health food” store. browsing for something that might taste good.  I’m not overly enthusiastic about health food, but I will buy it if it isn’t too expensive and might taste good.  Yesterday, I saw some peanut butter that intrigued me, more precisely a coconut and peanut spread.  Now, I like peanut butter (as I’ve just mentioned) and I like coconut, so I decided to buy a jar.

This morning for breakfast, I made buttered toast and spread it with the new peanut butter.  The combination of flavors and the crunchiness of the toast reminded me of eating Chick-O-Sticks.  This coconut and peanut spread is a new favorite!
