I've never had my bread rip when eating or making or carrying a sandwich.

Is this an actual problem people are having?

Maybe if you're a caveman with no thumbs who has never had peanut butter before.

Even $2 loafs of wonder bread don't tear unless you're using the most garbage ass peanut butter imaginable.

A hack that turns a 3 minute or less process into one that takes several hours.

I've never ripped bread while spreading on peanut butter.

At least the woman in the video you posted seems to be competent at what she's doing. I'd drink the latte, but I wouldn't eat that sandwich.

Generally peanut butter and jelly, sometimes peanut butter and banana.

Usually not peanut better with chocolate.

I eat whole wheat bread with peanut butter for breakfast, with a glass of milk and a banana.

Things like this have been around since forever. You're just exposed to it now because of the internet.

Stay-at-home parents get bored easily and frequently look for "creative" ways of doing ordinary things.

I have never had this problem, but even if I ever did, I would probably, y'know heat it up to make it easier to spread and not freeze it and make in impossible to spread.

I make PB&J every day, and I buy the cheapest bread and cheapest PB, and never understood how people tear their bread. This isn't hard people.

I wouldn't give her that much credit, haha. She fucks up pretty much every single step in that video. First off, she didn't make espresso, she made French press coffee. When she frothed the milk, she made something more akin to a cappuccino than a latte, and she then poured the coffee into the milk, instead of the other way around.

I mean, I'm sure it tastes "fine." Hell, I have a pretty low bar for coffee, personally. It just irks me a bit when people claim they can perfectly recreate (or even improve, as she claims) what a $1000+ machine and a professional coffee maker can do. It implies that those that enjoy professional lattes are suckers or something, wasting their money. If you want the cheaper stuff -- and I usually do, TBH -- then cool. But don't act like you've cracked some code and exposed the business, when all you did was make some cheap, creamy French press coffee.

That being said, this comes across as me being more upset than I am. TBH, I just love to hate-watch Hip2Save. I may even go on a binge now, as it's been a while since I've indulged myself, haha.

If its natural peanut butter you have to keep it refrigerated. Its only the hydrogenized stuff that is pantry safe.

This isn't a terrible idea because it's impossible for kids (or slobby roommates) to fuck it up. They can make their own lunch and you don't have to come home and find dried up peanut butter all over the kitchen. And there's no crusty peanut butter spoons or knives to deal with afterwards.

You might even be able to layer thinly sliced fruit with the peanut butter in the parchment. They would keep just fine in the freezer and it would save some more time.

You can keep natural in the pantry, it just lasts a month vs 6 months but for most that is enough time. Just have to give it a stir at times. It goes on much smoother than regular PB too.
