Arachibutyrophobia: This one is fear of Peanut Butter Sticking to the roof of mouth.
Well, eating just peanut butter and getting it on mouth roof is annoying. But for some people it is a terrifying fact and causes anxiety and panic attack. These people totally avoid eating peanut butter! They feel like peanut never come off and won’t be able to open the mouth properly. The sticky nature of peanut butter is a reason for this. These people are not afraid of peanuts but eating peanut butter scares them. However, some people with this phobia might consume little peanut butter with vegetables (as a dip) while others are afraid of peanut butter. Some cases this fear extends to other peanut products like peanut butter ice cream and sauces.
Considering the fact that peanut causes severe allergy in many, some people think that peanut allergy is a trigger for this phobia. Means, the more time peanut butter sticks to mouth roof it can cause more allergy!
