1. What ever happened to Americans calling it peanut paste?
(When I was a kid, reading trashy kid-lit like the BSC, it was always "peanut paste", while we called it peanut butter. Now it seems everyone's calling it "peanut butter".)

2. Americans & Canadians too: What's the difference between a cafe and a coffee shop? If they're the same thing, why do you have the term "coffee shop" when the rest of the world (slight exaggeration) calls them cafes?


Edit: What the hell, SOMEONE used to call it "peanut paste", I was sure it was Americans, uh, or Canadians. Maybe it was actually the UK?

Edit deux: I think the mystery "paste" people may have been QUEENSLANDERS! Makes sense, they're all fricking crazy. I may have to ask my brothers who are now living amongst them (ew).
