Shelfable bread spread?

Are there any bread spread that I do not require refridgeration and will last months after opened so I can keep in on the shelf? I don't have a refridgerator. :(

Healthy bread spread please; with nutritional value. Not the just-for-taste kind.

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: I forgot... Something with low sugar, or no sugar, please. Thanks again.

Isn't peanut butter bad? At least I heard.

Peanut butter sticks to the bottom gum; under my tongue. And throat. It makes it very hard for me to get it off. Maybe it's just me, or I am buying the wrong kind of peanut butter. Both chuncky and smooth looks the same to me. And never understood what is so 'chuncky' about a spread.

Well, the chunky has chopped up peanut bits in it. As for peanut butter, it does have some good qualities. Here's some info off of the Jif extra crunchy I have in the cupboard:
(for 2 Tbsp)
Protein: 8 g
Sugars: 3 g
Total Carb.: 7 gm
Cholesterol: 0 gm
Sodium: 130 mg
Total Fat: 16 gm
Calories: 190

This is why moms give peanut butter to their kids.
If you've no refrigerator, you can certainly make much use of the PB - not just for a bread spread, but use it in a blender with a banana and milk (get a small one just for this if there's no frige) for a great milkshake. Also, you can heat it in a skillet, along with diced green onions, a bit of ginger, milk (you can even use evaporated milk for this) and some thai spice. Add this to cooked chicken and serve over pasta.

Honey is another great spread that needs no frige.
(PS - did you know ketchup needs no refrigeration?)

Okay, thanks.

BTW, do sugarless PB really have no sugar? Or just a very low content of it?

Any more bread spread suggestions are welcome.

You can check an organic food store for stuff like that, Cyberian.

However, a lot of organic stuff does require refrigeration, as there aren't preservatives in them.
