Some good news for a change

In times of misfortune, one must learn to be thankful for small things.  There is peanut butter in Ukraine.  It is "Good Energy" brand and we ordered it on line, though it is carried in some shops according to their website. http://tm-good-energy.com/nasha-produkciya/

It is not bad at all.  Paler than Kraft Smooth and dryer but still spreads well and tastes every bit as good.  And made in Ukraine.

We ordered four 250 gm jars to try it out and it cost $15.50 CAD or $13.85 USD including postage.  I forget what we paid for 2 kg at Costco but it cost $10 to ship it over here through MEEST, so we have to find a place to buy it locally.

And if there is one brand of peanut butter here there may be another and soon shops will carry it in stock on a regular basis and the price will come down.  Hurrah.

Where there's peanut butter, there's hope! It's one of my staple foods.

Peanut butter is a sign of encroaching civilization. It is a necessity in the modern world.

That was truly disturbing. It's probably a good thing I never had children - the music alone would have parted me from what little sanity I have.

Did you sing it and do the actions too? Makes it much more fun.

Diane Henders said...

There are actions?!? *brain explodes*

We buy 80 oz (5 lb) bottles of Adams Peanut Butter at Costco for around $8 or $9. This and the post about the dog house make me realize how different your life is.
