My favorite part is when this fellow puts his clasped hands to his cheek like a maiden about to faint.

Oh for the wonders of modern food chemistry! Those partially hydrorgenated vegetable oils blended in keep Skippy fresh for (dare I say it?) years to come without refrigeration. Another benefit, if you can call it that, is that the peanut oil does not separate from the ground peanut solids which requires a vigorous stirring to re-blend it.

I prefer to buy peanut butter made of ground peanuts and salt, according to the label. The stirring is a minor annoyance.

On a side note, when I was in high school in the 70s, the description was offered to me thusly:
We call her Skippy, 'cause she spreads easy.

Using pure peanut butter is no big deal, although the TV won't tell you, since those folks are getting paid to push the industrial chemicals. I just store it on the shelf upside down. After that, I rotate it as necessary.

Say, maybe we can add "Rotate As Necessary" to our list of potential names for bands.
