Thanks for the info though, I'll have to try it. I'll bet it would be good spread on some gingersnaps.
The ingredients list should have tipped you off- lots of sweetener and vegetable oil.

Yes. My grandsons like it between any cookies.

Oh, I love cooked or smoked oysters. It's just the raw ones that are meh. Someone told me I had to try it with hot sauce. Then I will only taste the hot sauce. What a waste of a perfectly good oyster.

New Orleans raw oysters rock. Though I did get violently (and thankfully briefly) ill from a bad one years ago.

I taste coffee once a year just to be sure I still don't like it. I used to be able to get a doctored cappoccino from Quick Trip (no other place) every couple months - more flavored creamer than coffee, but the caffeine made my heart flutter. I grew up dunking cookies in my dad's coffee & liked it.
I still don't like beets, beer, or headcheese.
My college geography teacher brought food for every area we studied, including bagels & lox and caviar. I liked them.

Funny, to each their own.

I love caviar, sea urchin and oysters. Too bad the first two are so pricey I can't indulge often (or in the case of sea urchin, the quantity I would like).

Oysters are like ambrosia to me, especially the cold bay west coast varieties around here (kumomato, Penn Cove, etc etc etc). I like them just about any way, but nothing is better on the half shell. And NOT with hot sauce. At most a squeeze of lemon or a mignonette. Fresh, briney, absolutely essence of the sea.
