How do you do peanut butter and crackers?

Lets hold constant the PB for a moment -- in other words, take your favorite PB, be it homemade, salted or unsalted, creamy, chunky, or whatever -- and tell me which type of cracker you use to eat said PB?

Are you a water cracker person? A preference for something neutral so as to maximize the nutty goodness of the PB?

Do you prefer a more salty platflorm, like a Ritz cracker, Saltines or a Wheat Thin? Perhaps the savory flavors of the crackers better accentuates the saltiness of the PB?

Or are you more about texture than taste? Maybe you prefer a melba toast to a water cracker b/c the melba toast provides that "fall-apart" crispiness that a cracker does not.

Well, let me say this, I'm none of the above.

Today, I think I found the perfect "cracker" for PB and crackers.

Winner? Oreo cookies.

It's crunchy, sweet, salty and provides (most importantly) that great mouthfeel that only a mixture of Oreo stuffing and PB can generate.
