Peanut butter was one of Ted's favourite foods. He was known to eat it directly from the jar with his fingers.
He would sometimes make reference to his great love of the food to his team, often to their great befuddlement. Although available in England, peanut butter has never been a popular food item there. For instance, he once said that "Sam was more open than the jar of peanut butter on my kitchen counter". He then had to explain that he preferred keeping the peanut butter jar open so that he could easily scoop it out with his finger.
While many of the team were visibly disgusted by the notion, Roy called the practise a "f-ing good idea, to be fair".
