Have you seen packaged peanut butter, it comes in slices now like processed cheese slices. Its pretty gross. And such a waste.
PB Slices! These were developed by my Alma Mater! It made BIG news around here when they were first developed, and also when they were first introduced into the test markets.
Even though I would NEVER EVER buy them, nor eat one, and I think they are disgusting, (and I can't help but to crack up at the thought that someone couldn't SPREAD pb instead of using the slices) I can't help feeling it's kind of cool that my little alma mater developed a product to reach the masses. (True, I'd love it more if my school had developed an all-natural, organic food item, but you take what you can get in terms of fame, you know? LOL!)
So what that's it's gross and laden with preservatives and chemicals and fats and wastes plastic? My school invented that! LOL!!
When I was growing up, we only used Crest toothpaste, because evidently the Floristat was developed at my Dad's alma mater.
ETA: my dh just reminded me that parking meters were also invented at my alma mater!! So, everytime you park, think of OSU! (And think of us everytime you puke at the PB Slices, too! This alum does! LOL!!)
