No. The term Peanut Paste only exists to prove that Queenslanders cannot read food labels. ;)

I agree with Vic.

It's ALWAYS been 'paste'

and you don't put 'paste' on toast! ... works really well on walls and furniture particularly as a wood coloured crack filler ... (can just imagine what it does to your insides)

Peanut paste is a product of peanuts and is used as an ingredient in sauces, cookies, crackers (and other baked goods), breakfast cereals and ice cream.[1]

A number of peanut paste products have been used over the centuries, and the distinction between peanut paste and peanut butter is not always clearcut in ordinary use.

The term has been used in rural Queensland, Australia as a synonym for peanut butter. This followed pressure from dairy farmers who did not want peanut butter competing with butter for market share.[2]

The product was known in Western Australia for many years as peanut paste because, by definition, 'butter' is a dairy product. The same product was available in other states - presumably Queensland excepted - as peanut butter. Manufacturers complained about having to produce different labels for different states and the Western Australian government changed the rules on the use of the word 'butter' to allow for one set of labels.[*]
