Maureen: I was excited to make these for you. As an American, I always felt it was my patriotic duty to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for you. Now we have peanut butter and jelly cucpakes! What do you think?
Andrew (14): They’re…. [pause to select adjective] interesting.
Maureen: Good interesting or bad interesting?
Andrew: I’m not sure.
Maureen: I’m surprised you’d say that, since you’re a PB&J veteran and you love them.
Nicholas (10): I think there’s too much peanut butter.
Andrew: I agree. I was trying to nail down what it was that I wasn’t sure about, and that’s it.
Nicholas: There’s too much peanut butter in it, and not enough jelly. They’d be really good if you made the balance equal.
Maureen: Or, alternatively, make the cupcake chocolate rather than peanut butter flavoured, and then put a little chocolate in the middle of the icing, just like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup.
Andrew: If you balanced out the peanut butter and jelly, they would be good.
Maureen: How many stars would you give it?
Andrew: 3 stars.
Nicholas: 2.99999 recurring. You can put a line over the last nine, and then people would know it’s recurring.
Maureen: I don’t have that symbol on my keyboard, but thanks for the tip.
