I can say with 99% conviction that this handy tip would probably be geared more towards men rather than women. I just get that feeling. Call it a dude’s intuition. And guys, don’t believe for one second that there isn’t an art to this. I’ve fingered the wrong way and have ruined many, many treasured house shirts. But first (before we talk technique), you really have to know…THE PROPER TIME TO FINGER PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY JARS.
To me, there are only 3 appropriate (at home) situations:
- During a cram session for a big test or while working on a presentation.
- After a night of binge drinking.
- Quick "late night" snack on the way to the bathroom.
SO HOW DO I FINGER THE JARS?
Follow these steps correctly and you should have a nice big glob of PB&J to shove in your mouth.
Step 1. Place both opened jars near each other on a flat surface (countertop, coffee table, etc.)
Step 2. Extend both your pointer and middle fingers (do not attempt w/1 finger).
Step 3. Shove both fingers into the peanut butter first. (PB adheres better to the skin, jelly tends to slip).
Step 4. Once fingers are in the jar, sweep them in a counter clockwise motion (for control reasons, make sure glob isn’t too big).
Step 5. Now dip fingers (coated with PB) into the jelly.
Step 6. Since jelly has a difference consistency you must now do a scooping motion with your fingers.
Step 7. Remove fingers from jar and immediately shove into mouth.
Step 8. Enjoy & repeat.
PLEASE NOTE: This same technique can be used with Cheez Whiz and Mayo.
