Article excerpt

What do you get when you combine peanut butter with chocolate chips? The flavor of a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, according to David Humphrey and Lydia Leroux. And adding Nestle's semi-sweet chocolate morsels to their creamy peanut butter is exactly what Skippy has done.

Members of the Times-Union Consumer Panel have been eating the Skippy Doubly Delicious Peanut Butter and Chocolate Spread on crackers, bread, toast and even ice cream.

Because of the chocolate chips, you might expect the texture of the spread to be like chunky peanut butter. However, panelists say the chips aren't whole but smooth and creamy.

Humphrey's son, Tyler, doesn't like chocolate and wouldn't try the Doubly Delicious peanut butter. "I won't buy it again," Humphrey said, "because I can't eat a whole jar by myself."

Minister Franz Cornelius sampled the spread several ways, including on ice cream. …
