As a matter of fact, the discerning mouse has always preferred chocolate (or peanut butter) to cheese. Of course, before chocolate and peanut butter were invented, he had no choice but to accept cheese.

They evolved, the elder mice still love cheese, the young mice prefer junk food.

They probably became wise to the cheese and would not go near it, so now it is the peanut butter. I suspect that the peanut butter may not work after the mice figure out its danger.

The cheese thing (unless it is spread or spray) is a bad idea because mice can just take a chunk and leave, where peanut butter they have to actually get in and sometimes get stuck and then they get caught. Clever little things.

Peanut butter sticks to the trap better and the mouse has to work harder to get it and will spring the trap.
