The Facebook community is at odds with food blogger Bev Weidner, who posted her peanut butter hack on her Facebook page on Sept. 26.

"Behold the brilliant peanut butter hack you never knew you needed!" Food Network captioned on the video (below).

In less than two minutes, Bev explains to us what has held us back in our peanut butter endeavors. According to the hack of a tutorial, one can make peanut butter sandwiches with "no more torn bread. No more mess." Just spread peanut butter on parchment paper, freeze it, cut into slices and -- that's it, there you have it.

Weidner says in the video, "There's this whole convenience thing with sandwiches -- little slices of meat, slices of cheese, pickle slices. Why aren't there peanut butter slices?"

Bev demonstrates the perfect solution to a problem that doesn't exist. And so, as these things usually go on social media, Facebook users went right in, lighting up with colorful commentary.

One Facebook user wrote: "She must be one of those people from infomercials who can't pour milk and find themselves in an avalanche of Tupperware falling from their cabinets. I've never met a soul who rips the bread with peanut butter."

Some users were a tad harsh, questioning her presence on a food-related television show: "If you can't spread PB without tearing the bread, you have no business being on the Food Network."

Another user suggested a hack for this hack: Smuckers' Uncrustables Peanut Butter & Grape Jelly, a pre-made, crust-free, peanut butter sandwich ready in seconds. Just microwave.

The peanut butter hack accrued 14K comments and 40,000 shares all united by a single verdict: This is not a hack.

"Here's a pro-tip: ditch the bread entirely and eat the peanut butter with a spoon," one commenter wrote, while another Facebook user suggested, "Or you could simply spread the peanut butter on the bread with a butter knife like our heathen ancestors of old."

The lesson here is -- there is none. Because some things are best left untouched, left as is … such as the way we make our PB&J.
