Peanut butter is not very popular in Germany. They sell small containers of peanut butter for an outrageous price in the grocery store & it is in the international food section. Although, they do sell Erdnuss Flippies/Locken, which are basically Cheetos but with peanut butter instead of cheese flavoring. I do love those!
I love peanut butter. I love peanut butter & chocolate combined. I especially love the combination of peanut butter, chocolate & ice cream. The ice cream selection is lacking here. I tend to “have” to buy the expensive stuff like Haagen Dazs or Ben & Jerry’s, just because they have some of the flavors that I like (chocolate fudge brownie, chocolate, chocolate chip with caramel, cookie dough, etc.) but they never have ice cream with peanut butter. Well, I should never say never. At the grocery store this weekend, we were passing by the ice cream section and I just gasped & started pointing furiously at the ice cream shelf. In the Ben & Jerry’s section among the cartons of Cookie Dough & Chocolate Fudge Brownie were cartons of Peanut Butter Cup!!! I was so happy! We promptly bought three cartons.
I went to the German Ben & Jerry’s website & on the front page, they introduce their new (new to Germany) flavor of Peanut Butter Cup, so I might see it in the grocery stores for now on. Yay!!
