Staff Q&A: Is there a food you refuse to give up, no matter the cost?

Peanut butter prices are set to climb by as much as 40 percent because of the devastated peanut crop, so we asked our staff about which foods they would go broke for.

•••• Sandwiches from the Avanti Market. Mmm, mmm! Editor’s note: This is our company cafeteria, where Luke is sometimes found hovering over the pastrami and swiss. Luke Broadwater, reporter, The Baltimore Sun

•••• “Nutella-jelly time” doesn’t have the same ring to it as “peanut butter-jelly time,” but I’ll take hazelnut over peanut. Except for Thai peanut sauce. I’d pay truffle prices for that. Anne Tallent, editor, b

•••• My bank statement would say a Chipotle burrito. An old friend taught me to order half-chicken, half-steak — complete game-changer. Thanks, Mr. Biscuits! Wesley Case, reporter, b

•••• I don’t think I’d be able to accept not having string cheese in my life. Because I’m 5. Side note: Regarding the peanut situation, where’s Jimmy Carter when we need him most? Jordan Bartel, assistant editor, b

•••• I'm a Gatorade snob. Who else is there for you when you’ve got post nasal drip or when you’re suffering after a morning of drinking? Riptide Rush is. Jan Diehm, designer, b

•••• Good pizza. John-John Williams IV, reporter, The Baltimore Sun

•••• I am addicted to Reese’s. Shoot, does that mean their prices are going to go up, too? Mick Lee, Z104.3

•••• Is life worth living without lemon bars? Not the fancy ones, but those boxed ones that sit near the brownies in the supermarket. They are my rock. Olivia Hubert-Allen, community manager,The Baltimore Sun
