Why Creamy Peanut Butter Is — And Always Will Be — Better Than Chunky
It’s an age old debate which in truth reveals much more about a person than simple taste preference: Creamy or Chunky?
But the way I see it, it isn’t really that much of a debate, and it really has only two possible outcomes. You can either enjoy peanut butter the way it’s meant to be enjoyed (the very valid reasons for which are listed below). Or you can be terribly, terribly wrong.
Creamy is smooth.

But the texture is what makes it delicious? Please. I mean, why don’t you just eat plain peanuts if you love the texture so damn much?
Just look at those things.
They look like measles.
Or vomit chunks, ew.

Not to mention the fact chunky peanut butter is super anti-social and terrible at mixers.
Picthx Cooking Whims
Or the completely-verified, completely-scientific fact that creamy is 78% less likely to kill you or break your teeth (probably).
Plus, according to this guy, chunky peanut butter is for communists.
In sum, creamy peanut butter is the best kind of peanut butter, period.

I rest my case. Court dismissed, bring in the dancing bananas.
