    Peanut Butter!

    What is your favorite brand of peanut butter (not including specialty pastes and non-peanut butters like Nutella)? I like Jif. It's not as oily as Peter Pan or Skippy. I can't get the other brands listed where I live, but have had Kraft in Canada. It was ok.

    Growing up it was Peter Pan Peanut Butter but now I they all taste the same.

    The kind in Reese's Peanut Butter Cups!
    Hey, you got chocolate in my peanut butter! You got peanut butter in my chocolate!

    Back to your question:

    Peter Pan growing up, but Mrs. P grew up on JIF so guess what we have now...

    I only remember Jif and Peter Pan from my youth but Peter Pan was the preferred one. I've long since gone over to natural/organic pb.

    We get the CostCo Organic peanut butter. In a 2 pack, with the layer of peanut oil on top!

    In a pinch, we'll get the Kroger brand reduced fat peanut butter.

    Man, I like peanut butter.

    No specialty flavors? No Koogle?

    Don't think it qualifies as a brand per se, but I happen to like home made peanut butter best. Anyone else ever try making their own? We've made our own on a couple of occasions and it turned out quite delicious and it was especially nice being able to control the amount of crunchiness. I must confess, though, that I don't find a great deal of difference between the major brands of peanut butter found on most grocery store shelves and for that reason my 'favorite' brand - if I'm buying as opposed to making- is the local grocery store chain brand simply because it costs a few cents less.

    I like JIF. Someday I might try organic but where I live now organic peanut butter isn't exactly easy to come by.

    Store brand peanut butters make me wheeze and my chest get tight. No idea why. Maybe some cheaper filler they use...

    The grocery store and co-op where I shop have peanut butter grinders, so that's what I get. It tastes better than the processed, hydrogenated stuff.

    Oh . . . . thought this would be a crunchy vs. creamy thread. I don't care too much about the brand.

    Mods: can you add two polls to one thread? Or link a crunch vs. creamy poll thread to this one?

    Regarding crunchy or creamy, I prefer crunchy and the crunchier, the better!

    Moderator note:
    cruchy and smooth poll choices could be added, but because its a 'choose one' type poll it's not going to accomplish what you want. I think your only options are to start a whole new poll thread and we could maybe merge them (will need to confirm this) [EDIT: confirmed you can't post two polls on one thread or merge polls] or have them stand as two separate threads. I say just run with the brand concept and if folks want to clarify the smooth versus crunchy preferences they can do so in their posts.

    We get the natural kind of peanut butter that has nothing but peanuts and oil and has to be stirred.

    The only time we buy something like Jif or Peter Pan (or the store brand) is when I'm making a stir-fry with Indonesian peanut sauce.* It's actually recommended in the recipe - I think the peanut butter with lots of additives tends to "melt" better and makes for a smoother sauce.

    Peanut Butter Randoms

    You know this Bear.....can't just stand at the water cooler and answer the dang question.....I voted for Jif.....we buy the "extra crunchy". Good stuff.

    Attached (Because Sticky) Random.....I was on my honeymoon with Donna, otherwise known as Wife # 2. (Steeler fans....."one for the thumb"..... ). We motored out to otterpop territotry, the beautiful state of Montana. After a few days of driving in my yellow CJ-5 Jeep, we camped at Apgar Campground, Glacier National Park. An incredible place.

    Because we were on a tight budget we lived on peanut butter sandwiches and Dinty Moore Stew, cooked over a burning Sterno Can. I burnt-out on peanut butter for a few years because of that adventure.

    Other than that, I have lived a sheltered-life.

    Off-topic:
    What is it about honeymoons travelling out west and limited diets. On OUR honeymoon we travelled out to otterpop country and subsisted on cheetohs, orange pop and canned hash for over a week! Needless to say we pretty much burned out on consuming anthing orange for many years to follow.

    Teddie is a local brand of natural (non-hydrogenated) PB here in Boston that I grew up on and still get. Its not organic but its cheap and tasty. Comes in crunchy and creamy, salt or no salt.

    And the Teddie Peanut Butter factory in Everett has the greatest sign on top of it!

    Teddie brand took the place of Peter Pan during its recall last year at the grocery store I worked at. Not sure if they still have it, but it did seem kind of random when it started coming in.

    That said I can't say I really like peanut buttrer, although I will eat it if it is in a baked good. The smell of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches is a bit nauseating to me.
