    Ha! When I read the “Peanut Butter…” question, before reading Vincent’s answer, I flashed back to a memory of Vincent and I combing through an entire supermarket in France trying to find peanut butter – It’s not a staple in France like it is in the US. Thankfully, we were able to find the elusive peanut butter in the “foreign foods” isle. I’m glad you liked the PB and Banana sandwich, Vince!
