Joking on my previous post---there's no theological reason to not mix peanut butter with banana, pickle, or fluffernnutter.

My objections would just be based on taste, not theology. ;)
I knew that.  :D  Some things on this planet really ARE just a matter of personal taste.

Well, Fluffernutter is right there on the marshmallow fluff jar label, so I can't claim it as my own.  ;D
Heaven forbid that anyone should dare to question the awesome authority invested in a marshmallow fluff jar label... ::)

Whether it is or not, should it be?

If it tastes anything like its British equivalent, Marmite, then this should seriously be considered!  ;)

Is Outrage!
Is product of non-traditional, scholastic, Western thinking! The Fathers of the Peanut Butter and the Jelly never discussed the union of the Peanut Butter with the pickle, the banana, or the artificial and unnatural creation the Fluffernutter!
Anethema! We lift you to the mercy of God for such thoughts!

Fr Kris,
A noted Orthodox Church historian has just published a paper proving that the addition of pickles, bananas, and Fluffernutter to peanut butter and jelly sandwiches occured in the West at the same time as the addition of the Filioque to the Creed.

Is no surprise! Is too much to think coincidental arrival of Filioque with mixing the peanut butter with the pickles, the bananas, and the fluffernutter is 'simple coincidence'!
The decadence of Western theology is made apparent by the adulterated recipes for peanut butter sandwiches!

Probably. Not eveyone in the world has the strong constitution of Australians to cope with Vegemite. ;)
Give me a Foster's, a smoke, and a vegemite, mate!

Will having the first two of those simultaneously give me the strong constitution needed for the third?

Actually, you just need what we call a "Drover's Breakfast" which consists of "a smoke and a spit".
(A "drover" is a herdsman on horseback who drives cattle or sheep and they are known for their frugal diet.)

I begin to suspect, btw, that with the several references "fluffernutter" as though it were a seperate ingredient that some here do not know what it is.  ;) tsk tsk  Allow me to provide some enlightenment.

A concoction more diametrically opposed to Vegemite there cannot possibly be!
Vegemite is the way of ascesis. Fluffernutter is the way of self indulgence.
Vegemite is apophatic. Fluffernutter is cataphatic.
Vegemite is the via negativa. Fluffernutter is the via positiva.
