DAILY TELEGRAPH ARTICLE
Strange because I was going to post about Marmalade Flavours, then I read the above article.
What's your favourite Marmalade ? (Mine's Orange and Tangerine - cold from the Fridge on toasted Seeded Bread)
Do you eat less Marmalade then you used to ?
It appears to be related to age. Are us more senior types making Marmalade which is something for old people ?

From a sample of about 3 I can confidently say that men like marmalade, women don't.
Too sour for me, and when I put some that I'd made on the dance club bring-and-buy a couple of people bought it 'for their husband'
The article says
As if they were something new.
I remember chocolate spread as a treat in my childhood, more than 65 years ago.
We make our own, with my favourite being Ginger marmalade but it is mainly myself that enjoys it as my Better Half prefers her Strawberry jam.
We only make @ 6 jars of marmalade compared to over 30 jars of jam during the year.
As for peanut butter and chocolate spreads, not to my taste at all. With the number of people that seem to have a peanut allergy today it seems strange that sales are on the rise, unless of course there are not actually any peanuts in it!!

I do like Marmalade, and all types, thick, thin, orange, lemon, grapefruit, lime. I do eat less these days, but that goes for all sweet spreads, and spreads in general, because I'm eating less bread.
Peanut butter. I'd never eaten peanut butter until I was an adult, wasn't something my parents bought in ever, and if we'd asked for it, the answer would have been no! tight parents :P
That's just the way it was.
I bought it initially for my kids, but tried it and like it, but not on toast, yuck!
I do like peanut butter and crackers, or PB and banana on various ryvita.
It's not the peanuts or lack of them but blinkin' palm oil. I want my peanut butter to be made of Peanuts,not have some cheap ingredient bunged in there, with no price reduction!
So far the best option I found was Morrissssons own branded PB, no added salt, sugar or palm oil. Not the cheapest but just about acceptable (as tight as my parents were :P ).
Got to agree Hedgyhug, peanut butter is packed out with “stuff” these days, mainly palm oil which is not number one on my preferred ingredients lists. Peanut and sweet chilli sauce toasties are nice especially if you add some grilled chicken (sorry).
I used to like marmalade, Rosie’s lime was always a favourite because it was what we often used to get on board ship. Always wholemeal (or brown as we used to get on board) toast. I don’t have it so much these days as I don’t really have a sweet tooth, but the sourer the better for me, lime, grapefruit or lemon rather than orange.
peanut butter needs something sweet or fruity to counteract it, hence the american peanut butter and jam (it is not jelly, jelly is the stuff that you get at birthday parties, it is jam).
The proportions are different. But basically, yes.
I remember the chocolate spread Mo, pretty scrummy. I like marmalade, sometimes buy it but usually make a batch with the concoction you buy in tins to make up.
I like peanut butter, but afraid it doesn't like me so very rarely eat it.
I do like marmalade but it has to be chunky cut, any flavour. My OH was a real marmalade lover and had it most mornings rather than any other spread. I used ro make my own with various citrus fruits and also liked to add ginger. I do like a good peanut butter, on it's own, no jam. I have enjoed it on brown seeded toast with sliced banana. Rather yummy.
Can't stand the chocolate spreads which are much too sweet. Do I eat marmalade as much as in the past? No!
I am now a widow and live with my memories.
I love marmalade. I think some of the shop bought ones are a bit sweet now though, not so tangy. Can't beat seeded toast covered in marmalade - my morning snack at work most days
