Bull-oney! Any real Cyclist would recognize a poll about real food - peanut butter - right off the bat. However, Almond? Must be some West Coast Wuss variation.

Peanuts, blech
Almonds, yum

Peanuts are like BL, folks think they taste good and are good for you, until they try wide outside Almonds.

Crunchy, all natural... like Adams. The only ingredient listed should be: peanuts.

Anything else is just brown Crisco.

Edit: Ur edits are too late. You have already let the cat out of the bag about your almond perversions
I knew it. Almonds are only for Left Coast, New Age wack-a-doodles!

I thought it might be a peanut butter pole but the almonds threw me off... since almonds are a legume, but not peanuts...

but since you asked, I have a thing for Trader Joe's cashew spread....

There is a reason why only crunchy is italicized in the poll. It is the only correct answer. Any other response is wrong and the responder needs further training from someone who knows the real/only truth, like me.

Yeah, in the mid 70s to 80s as a kid I ate a bunch of in in Germany and family always took home a lot. Then it started appearing in specialty stores where I lived in New England, but at crazy high prices. Sometime in the 90s they started making it in the US and prices dropped significantly as it showed up in grocery stores intead of specialty import stores.
I don't eat it anymore, far to sweet for my current taste.

Probably some pimple faced left coast 35 year old hacker in the basement of his mother's house, high on toasted almond fumes, mucked up the poll.

I hope every one realises this poll is useless,
Not enough data.
We need to consider all the variables.

Type of bread?
Drinks?
Chips?
Level of hunger?
For use in recipie?

for me it depends on your eating situation. I might like crunchy on a sandwich but creamy for my morning toast; and all-natural for a snack with a crisp apple. I might put ordinary in a kong for the dogs to obsess over; and almond is always good for a change. aw, heck, I like 'em all.
