Oh no. no. NO. Mayonnaise was made to accompany, not to be eaten as the main ingredient. I'm dying a bit inside.

In that case I won't tell you about the people in my country who eat mayonnaise right out of the jar.

To me that's disgusting. I'm not sure I'd even be able to do that.

I tried a peanut butter and nutella sandwich today, and let me tell you, it is the most delicious thing ever (except for chocolate). It made the fact that I was eating freezer-bread nullified: it supersedes any other sandwich I have eaten with peanut butter, my next experiment shall be pbnb (peanut butter, nutella, and banana) sandwich.

I don't think peanut butter is very popular around these parts. In fact, I have never tried peanut butter or even seen it before other than in movies or on tv. Not saying we don't have it here, obviously.

People usually make ham and cheese sandwiches here. Or just with one of the ingredients. At restaurants and cafés you can order more elaborate sandwiches which can include lettuce, tomato, tuna, chicken, cheese, bacon, etc. but I'm yet to see one that includes peanut butter.

I've always eaten peanut butter either by itself or with Nutella, but never with jelly (blegh). I suppose I can contribute that to my German upbringing.
