Truth In Advertising, I Guess

Here's a photo of one of my favorite things in the whole wide world: Honey Flavored Peanut Butter. For my money it doesn't get much better than this, and if you disagree you are a Philistine deserving of the scorn and mockery of others.

Let's take a closer look at the ingredients, shall we? Note that the label helpfully informs us that Honey Roast Creamy Peanut Butter contains... PEANUTS! Gasp!

I assume this preposterous proclamation is some legal butt-covering due to the deadly peanut allergy that's running rampant in our society these days. Either that or people have become even stupider than I thought. You know, maybe if today's pale, sluggish kids would go outside and eat dirt once in a while instead of playing XBox 360 inside their sterile bed chambers they wouldn't have peanut allergies.

Also note that Honey Flavored Peanut Butter contains Rapeseed Oil. You may know this substance by it's more common and suitable for mixed company name of Canola Oil. Rapeseed is the honest to God actual name of the oil though, which probably explains why most companies choose to call it Canola instead.
