My American teacher who taught French language told me that the French find peanut butter distateful and don't eat it. Especialy the smell of it. One or two French expats (including my crazy roommate) I met in in NYC also said they didn't like peanut butter and they were from the countryside.
I like nut butters. Like macademia nut and almond. Or 'natural' salty peanut butter where the oil gathers at the top.
You can eat it or use it as a moisturizer!
