Any peanut butter enthusiast knows there are many great ways to use the delicious nutty spread.
You can put it on a sandwich, with a lashing of jam if you’re feeling adventurous. You can use it to make satay sauces and cookies. You can also eat it straight from the jar, or stir spoonfuls of it into ice cream.
However, it seems humankind has been severely lacking imagination and innovation where peanut butter is concerned. Apparently, your trusty Kraft condiment can also serve as… an alternative to shaving cream. It sounds like a weird Masterchef challenge, but there are actual non-reality TV people — women and men alike — who have been attempting this trick.
"Shaving was a nightmare. The blades became clogged with the thick peanut butter after one sweep of the razor. Washing them clean took several minutes and covered the bath with yellow clumps of peanut butter," wrote Cole. Admittedly, she used crunchy peanut butter, which probably isn't very compatible with a razor.
"Application was, in a word, disgusting. It was so thick and difficult to spread that it would’ve taken the whole jar to coat just one of my legs ... I washed the razor thoroughly and tried again, only to be totally grossed out with how tacky the peanut butter was on my leg," Builder said.
If you need the visuals, Youtube personality Hayley Hoover filmed her PB shave attempt, which you can watch below. "I feel like I'm taking a bath in a sandwich," she says at one point, which tells you everything you need to know. (Post continues after video.)
