Zone Perfect Chocolate Peanut Butter: $1.49/Kroger

A peek at the wrapper reveals that Zone Perfect Chocolate Peanut Butter has good protein, decent calorie count, expected amount of sugar, and the flavor name, well I don’t keep it a secret that I’m a peanut butter addict. This Zone bar does not disappoint in that department. The first bite is just right – my teeth find the perfect harmony of creamy and crunchy in the peanut butter middle. But wait, the second bite isn’t as delicious; it’s tasting more phony. Third bite and I’m not feeling it anymore. So here’s my first encounter w/ a bar where I want the first bite and then pass it on. It’s a bizarre sensation at the back of my throat; the teeth chomp tastes great, but the slow swallow leads to a not-so-pleasant flavor, and a less than pleasant aftertaste.

I just started editing the titles of a recent batch of “Baby Nom Nom” videos, and I’m seeing that I probably feed Louise peanut butter way too often. One breakfast video in particular she’s squeaking for a piece of peanut butter toast, and it wasn’t until I later remark in the recording something about “this afternoon we’re going to Braselton Christmas Festival, and we’re going to eat a bunch of street food!” that I realized that I’d taped that video maybe an hour at most b4 my car accident. It just made me all stupid weepy again, feeling fortunate that I didn’t take Louise w/ me that morning, and that Joanna sat there after I made that Nom Nom, in her pajamas, rolling her eyes at me saying how she didn’t want to come w/ me either. I’m so glad that they didn’t. The car has since been replaced, and I still have the occasional tenderness in my shoulder and back, but the entire experience has had me walking in a fog, a dense peanut buttery fog. I’m just ready to put it all behind me, but unfortunately the accident happened about 2 mi. down the road outside my neighborhood so I can still see the tiremarks in the embankment where my car was. 2/5
