RE: [GreenYes] Sliced Peanut Butter
Well, if that just ain't the greatest thing since ... sliced bread! (sorry,
couldn't resist!)

I'll put this on the "frugal living" message board at about.com - they have
a recurring thread about stupid grocery products, but I don't think I've
seen this one yet.  Thanks for the laugh!

NEWS ITEM: Sliced Peanut Butter to Hit U.S. Stores

"Pre-sliced peanut butter is on its way to US store shelves in test markets,
food researchers from Oklahoma State University said Monday.

"'It's all about convenience,' said William McGlynn, a member of the team
that developed the product.

"The peanut butter comes individually wrapped in plastic sheets, like sliced
cheese.  A package of 17 one-ounce slices will start selling soon in
Wal-Mart stores in Oklahoma and the Dallas-Fort Worth area."
(From San Jose Mercury News wire services, 7/17/01)

At long last, the pre-eminence of convenience!
Think of all the other advantages:
-no more gooey spreading knives to clean, saving water.
-improved regularity in diet, with each serving the same size.
-eliminates young boys fighting for the biggest helping,
 fostering world peace.
-no wasted product stuck down in the bottom of the jar.

I can't wait for the pre-sliced jelly!
