MsM, I've had those cookies and they could ruin me. They're sooooo good!

I would say it's time for cauli beer cheese soup! I don't use flour in mine, just the boat motor.

BTW I love those teeny tiny potatoes in my beef stew. Just a nice rinse and into the pot. No scrubbing, peeling or cutting.

This is my favorite Peanut Butter.

I LOVE the disclaimer on the Trader Joe site.

Trader Joe’s Crunchy Salted Peanut Butter with Flax and Chia Seeds. It’ll only cost you $2.99 for the 16-ounce jar. We’ve yet to put a price on the nutritional benefits, but that would probably mean it would be too expensive to sell in our stores.

NOTE: Since posting, the details of this item may have changed due to fluctuating market prices, federal regulations, currency rates, drought, pestilence, bandits, rush hour traffic, filibusters, clowns, zombie apocalypse, punctilious product developers... Contact our Crew for current price and availability.

Ingredients


Roasted Peanuts, Chia Seeds, Flax Seeds, Sea Salt. CONTAINS PEANUTS.

I'm glad to see that, in spite of the issues with peanut allergies, TJ's doe NOT make a "peanut free" peanut butter. Yet.

I wonder why so many people only now have life threatening allergies to peanuts? Never heard of that back in the day. Day care centers have banned peanut butter for the good of all.

Trader Joe products you have tried

I know, Kay. Strangely, airlines have reintroduced peanuts. Used to be those were prohibited as well.

Some of the schools I worked in had "peanut free" tables.

For me, it always goes back to modern parents being more protective of their kids. Using anti-bac soap for everything, for one thing. Then there is the difference in play style from when we were kids to now. Back then, most of us spent hours outside playing in the dirt - and probably eating our fair share, too. Today's kids spend so much time with video games. Even little kids are on iPads and tablets, playing "learning" games. Put the device down, kid, and go out and play with real-live kids!

My favorite allergy story goes back to when our kids were about 2nd or 3rd grade age. The school didn't have a cafeteria, so all the kids had to brown-bag it. The school did, however, provide milk if you ordered it. Every month, they collected money from the kids who were ordering milk that month. One month our daughter came home to tell me that her one friend was allergic to white milk, so she had to drink chocolate. I said "she can't be allergic to white milk". to Loverly. "Nuh-huh, Mommy, she is!" So I said to her "how do we make chocolate milk?" "Well, we pour the milk and stir in the chocolate powd...." and stopped. "We use WHITE milk, Mom!" And that day, Loverly learned the difference between "I have an allergy" and "I don't like the taste of".

Oops, sorry, msmofet, but I kinda went

This gives some credence to your theory, CG:

Quote:
Or maybe it's all the videogames. Scientists think vitamin D, which the body needs sunlight to make, helps the immune system label substances as innocuous and thus build up a tolerance. Children who spend less time outdoors tend to be deficient in D, Wood says, so their body might mislabel peanut proteins as dangerous. Parents looking to protect their kids might consider sending them outside -- and not washing their hands when they come home.
