I had an amazing experience with vanilla Oikos greek yogurt and peanut butter a while back, and I continue to enjoy it on a fairly regular basis. Recently I discovered that my throat itches slightly after eating said combination. I thought it was the yogurt, until last night.
I was starving, and obviously was close to wasting away to nothing. A sandwich was made and I got my hands on half of it. It was peanut butter and fluff. I wasn't really in the mood for it. I would have actually preferred a nice healthy dose of cottage cheese, but I had eaten the last of it for lunch. But the sandwich was made and it was looking at me. Plus, did I mention there was fluff?
I could eat fluff by the spoonful. I don't, but I could. Well, except for that one time, but that was an emergency. What? Only 40 calories and no fat!! If it were socially acceptable, I'd bring a jar of it for lunch.
After eating the peanut butter and fluff, I noticed that my throat felt slightly the way it does after I've eaten my yogurt with peanut butter in it. My first thought was that I might be having an allergic reaction to peanut butter since my itchy throat has occurred in two instances when I've eaten peanut butter. But when I eat peanut butter by itself (my spoon seems to like to jump in the jar for a swim a lot), I don't have any adverse reactions at all. Veddy veddy curious.
It can't be the fluff. Marshmallow is just sugar and air. Since I consume both of those on a fairly regular basis, there is no way I'm allergic to either of those.
Today I decided to be proactive and I did an experiment. I ate a spoonful of peanut butter. No reaction. I ate my yogurt plain. No reaction. Peanut butter & fluff sandwich. Reaction.
Somewhere along the lines of combining peanut butter with both vanilla Oikos greek yogurt or Fluff makes me react like this. What is the ingredient in these two things that brings out this reaction? It's so strange!
Maybe Web MD has the answers.
