Just to add my tuppence-worth, I had never, until this thread, heard the stuff called 'Peanut paste' - always 'butter' over in UK.
Pretty vile stuff, too - except as a substitute for tahini in hummous.

If one suffered indigestion after eating a paste of chickpeas, olive oil, garlic, lemon juice and tahini, would it be properly described as post-houmous?

We are also common people divided by one language!!

stales

And Hev - don't disown me - note that I said I called it Peanut Butter throughout my 27 years in NSW. It's the sandgropers that called it peanut paste (in the 80s at least) and, as I recall, you haven't lived here (yet)?
