You probably don’t eat too many pb&j’s if you have this phobia.  Arachibutyrophobia is the fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of your mouth.  Not making this up, there are people who have this fear.  The severity of arachibutyrophobia varies from person to person. Some with this condition may be able to eat small amounts of peanut butter while others will avoid eating peanut butter or anything with the consistency of peanut butter altogether.

Arachibutyrophobia can stem from a greater phobia of things that are sticky or a fear of choking. It may also stem from a traumatic incident with peanut butter such as choking on or being allergic to it.  For my next trick, I’ll be gargling peanut butter!  Listen to the podcast here;
