How has your week been? We’ve been hiding from the elements and staying inside in the warm.
If somebody needs to make a run to the shops for some candy, we play cards and the loser has to head outside and face the cold! I don’t mean to brag, but I haven’t lost yet…
Sunday 24th January is Peanut Butter Day, so we’re inviting roomies to have a Peanut Butter Flutter (I’m really proud of that rhyme) on the site right now!
We love Reese’s chocolate goodies, but we ordered a few too many hampers this week. Hey. we might love candy, but we have our limits too.
Anyway, we decided to give away five to our friends in our Peanut Butter Flutter. To enter, you just need to play at the Circus and earn tickets. Head to the promotions page for more details.
To get you in a nutty mood, I thought I’d write about my favourite peanut butter facts. You might be surprised at just how interesting a simple spread can be!
Aside from being a very big word, Arachibutyrophobia is the fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of your mouth. Yes, it’s a legit phobia!

Go peanut butter!
Team Smooth or Team Crunchy?
Smooth or Crunchy? It’s an age-old argument.
Well, in 2013, Survata published a consumer survey which showed that 57% of the audience polled preferred smooth.
