Chunky vs. Creamy Peanut Butter

It was Jean-Jacques Rousseau who first posed the idea about creamy peanut butter, claiming that it was inherently chunky and therefore naturally satisfactory as such; however, society had pulverized the poor product into submission, into the space-age paste we all know and love.
So this debate, while nothing life or death, is about peanut butter.
Personally, I believe that chunky is the way to go. I mean, in a society in which you never know what the heck you're eating, it's good to know that there are
peanuts in your peanut butter.

When I was younger I used to hate chunky peanut butter and loooove smooth peanut butter. But now I loooove chunky peanut butter too.
So I'm going to be annoying and sit on the fence. As long as it's peanut butter and is edible...I'm not really fussed

Creamy all the way. It spreads better and it feels much more comfortable in your mouth. With chunky peanut butter, there is the risk of choking, especially with big chunks.
I do understand your point about really knowing that there are peanuts in the peanut butter, and while I can't actually say I believe everything I see written on a jar, I'm happy enough if it says peanut butter.
I am going to tell you an example to support my opinion. I was going to have a piece of this fresh, amazingly soft, probably just baked bread. I was going to have peanut butter with it. So I stuck a knife in a jar full of chunky peanut butter, because it was the only one available at that moment. I started to spread it on the bread, but alas! The bread was so soft, the chunks ripped the bread apart! Then I thought, "Man, I really wish that peanut butter were smooth."
And this is why I believe in creamy peanut butter.

Chunky peanut better is my general preference, but creamy is better in certain situations:
1) with celery
2) with those tortillas (Yes, I know I'm weird. Blame my Phillippino ex-step-mother.)
Otherwise, the chunks in peanut butter are quite reassuring. It's nice to know that what I'm actually does have some semblance and relation to peanuts, especially when I'm back in the US. It's like pulp.
Rousseau has once again held the same ideas as me, though, as usual, they are far more radical. Everything has its place and time.

Chunky all the way.
Because, forget that you
the actual peanuts. There's something about this that adds to the texture and well, atleast satisfies my tastebuds.
Also; something chunky, will cause you to chew more. Which in turn is good for you.
Pretending in words was too tentative, too vulnerable, too embarrassing to let anyone know.

nuts ... but I love peanut butter. What a joke.
When I used to have chunky peanut butter, I'd always chomp down on a peanut. Which was just unpleasant: they taste horrible. Then I discovered smooth, and my whole world changed for the better.
So smooth any day. (:

Call me a by-product of the artificial age but I don't really care if there are nuts in my peanut butter, I prefer smooth.

I generally dislike peanut butter.
