(Closed) Eating Straight from the Jar

  • poll: The utensil goes into your mouth and then

    It would only touch my single portion

    It could go into something that my SO and I will completely consume in that sitting

    It could go into food that would be consumed later within a day or 2, by either my SO or myself

    It could go into any food that only I would later eat

    It could go into any food that only my immediate family would eat

    It could go into any container including that can of whipped cream for a potluck dessert!

    If its just for me solo or my SO I don’t care, I’ll double dip.

    If its something to be shared with others, then no I don’t DD.

    @AB Bride:  I don’t mind ice cream tub sharing so much, provided it’s only me and Fiance. We never eat jam or peanut butter or anything else with a spoon that comes out of a jar – it feels wrong to me. 

    When cooking, however, get a spoon to taste and either rinse or get a new one BUT don’t lick a taste off the cooking utensil and then dip it back in the pot. For some reason this grosses me out beyond belief even if it’s just Fiance and me.

    Hm…I chose that we would use a spoon multiple times in something only if we were going to finish it that sitting. I might do it if I know I’m going to finish it that day (I’m home during the day and DH is not). I do not re-use spoons in anything I would cook from (so I will use multiple spoons when I’m going on a peanut-butter binge). 

    We don’t drink from containers unless it’s the end.

    On a related note, it freaks me out when I see people taste things with a spoon when cooking–yuck! When my mom is cooking for more than just immediate family (and even for immediate family now that we’re older), she always spoons some from one spoon onto another, and only tastes off that spoon. I try to imagine that that’s true of everyone who cooks… otherwise, yuck! I’ll taste right off the spoon if I’m cooking for just me or just me and DH.

    @AB Bride:  just going to say that is not at all how herpes will get spread. I do still think it’s gross and generally don’t share peanut butter or nutella at my house because I know my fmil does that crap.

    @iarebridezilla:  +1. It’s just the two of us so we don’t care. If our future kids care, they can buy their own food. I’m sure they won’t care for long 😛

    Peanut Butter and Nutella were intended to be eaten directly from the jar, without question. So yes every once in a while I indulge.

    Its just the two of us so it isn’t THAT gross.

    I’m so surprised by the amount of people that eat peanut butter straight from the jar!! I don’t even really like peanut butter, I eat it maybe once a year melted on toast.

    We eat icecream fromthe container, but if we were to have people around that were going to eat the icecream i would buy a new tub. we both drink milk and soft drink from the bottle more than we should but again wouldn’t allow guests to drink it, we would go buy a fresh one.

    I have my own peanut butter that nobody else eats, so I will typically eat a spoon or two out of it on a rough day lol.

     

    God help me with Nutella…

    I’ll only do it if it’s ONE spoonful because I dont want to spread bacterial which can spoil food faster.  Anything more goes into a bowl.  I also dont drink from the container but Fiance does, and it drives me crazyyyyy 🙂

    We’re insane about absolutely zero double dipping for health reasons. A knife that goes into the peanut butter and then touches bread cannot go back into the peanut butter. I have celiac’s disease (can’t have any wheat) so the potential for crumbs or things getting back into a jar and then making me sick makes it a no-go. I find the idea of putting saliva back into a jar pretty gross though too.

    For those who double dip the PB and nutella, do you buy a new jar every time you bake something for a potluck? I don’t really understand how things like this aren’t shared with everybody.

    I will double dip in whatever I want in my own house. I have no issues with anyone double dipping in dips or whatever at restaurants or parties, either. I don’t do it in public (unless I’m with family), b/c I know it grosses people out, but I think it’s a little ridiculous to worry about peanut butter in someone’s house when you open doors and touch things when you shop without batting an eye…

    @bunnymama:  I bake with a different type of PB than I eat 🙂 — I have yet to bake with Nutella, but I would absolutely buy a new jar. Ew lol.
