It will be interesting to see how successful the new restaurant franchise "Peanut Butter & Co." becomes. "Peanut Butter & Co." just opened in NYC and, according to the March 8th edition of Newsweek, franchises are being offered. Newsweek lists some of the menu items and each is a variation of a peanut butter sandwich. I just find it disheartening to see another example of just how popular peanut butter is in the United States. It seems to be truly part of the American culture. Good Luck to all of us who are dealing with peanut allergies!

Wow. A restaurant for peanut butter lovers. Even before I found out my son was peanut butter allergic I don't think I would have thought to go to a peanut butter restaurant. I think we will find more and more people allergic to peanuts over the years. I hate to see our numbers increase even if it makes more people aware of the problem.
