I Try It So You Don’t Have To: Smucker’s Goober Lemmonex February 4, 2009 Bizarre, I Try It So You Don't Have To, Reviews 9 Comments Note from Eick: It has been a tremendous honor having Lemmonex contribute to So Good for the past 6 months, and her weekly column, “I Try it So You Don’t Have To” has been an absolute perfect fit for So Good. I have been delighted to have her on board over the past 6 months. Be sure to keep up with all her exploits by reading Lemmonex.com! So, this is my swan song kids. It has been a great experience writing for So Good but life has been crazy lately and I feel these columns have been a bit lacking. I only want to best for you so I decided to have some dignity and step away. This final entry may seem sort of a bust, but it holds some personal meaning to me. I would beg and plead my mom for this stuff when I was a kid. I wanted this more than lunchables or fruit roll-ups…both verboten items in our house. Apparently, she did not love me; she declared it “inedible” and “garbage”. I now have the ability to put whatever crap I want in my body…so here it is: Smell: MMMM..peanut butter. I like peanut butter. I am sure you like peanut butter. Just go with it. Appearance/Texture: It looks pretty inoffensive. Where can you go wrong with grape jelly and creamy peanut butter? Sure, I like it chunky and raspberry is clearly the superior fruit preserve, but this gets an A for effort. I decided to ignore the excessive bubbles in the jelly…denial, not just a river in Egypt. Taste: Clearly, my mother hates me. There is nothing wrong with this. It is heaven on a spoon, nirvana on my tongue. It is happiness in my mouth. Final verdict: My childhood was a lie. Mommy, why don’t you love me? ************************************ Lemmonex thanks you for putting up with her crap and reading her blog…she will miss you.

Reply not that weird February 5th, 2009 We hardly knew ye. Reply elswinger February 20th, 2009 You do know that this was available back in the 70s (maybe earlier). I remember it being pretty gross, but I am a picky eater. For me it has to be Skippy Super Chunk, Strawberry Jelly (not preserves or jam) on fluffy White bread served with cold milk. If I am feeling peckish I will crush Frito’s into the sandwich too. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
