Your peanut butter preferences?

i'd love to hear what you guys think of the way peanut butter ought to be.
i have suddenly begun to love peanut butter in all forms.... on bread with a glass of milk to wash it down, directly from the jar on a spoon, all-natural or regular, salted or -un, sweetened or not, crunchy or smooth......
but if i had to choose, at the moment i'd say give me some all- natural, salted peanut butter (smooth peanut butter) on some whole-grain toast and i'd be happy. with milk. peanut butter just isn't peanut butter to me without that glass of milk.
but that's only for the moment.
tomorrow my new phase could be the almond butter. it was almond butter very recently instead of peanut butter.

your ideal peanut butter and how you best enjoy it?


i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink

I get this Honey Roasted PB at my farmer's market. It is so delicious! It's not smooth but it's not chunky either. I love PB on a piece of whole wheat toast, sometimes with bananas on top. A glass of milk is without a doubt.

My favorite is Jif chunky on bread with blackberry jam, and a glass of milk also. Sometimes when I work too long in the yard and feel like all my energy is gone, I have that and start to feel better right away. It is like an elixir to me.

Natural PB, of any type. I like creamy best but don't mind crunchy. I like it on toasted grainy bread (no butter!) or a ww bagel. Smuckers makes one where they add just a bit of honey. mmmm That's my favorite.

I haven't found any at a Farmer's Market here, but the honey roasted one talked about sounds great too.

Crunchy gets my top vote, and I do prefer a natural peanut butter when I can come by it...

Cliche as it sounds I think grape jelly and peanut butter will always get my top vote, well aside from homemade peanut butter cups that is!

A long time ago my brother asked me for a peanut butter ice cream recipe, and I had to admit that was one I had never heard of let alone made myself ...does anyone have a recipe?

I do not know what is wrong with me but I will not eat anything but Jif creamy.

I HATE "natural" peanut butter. And so does my dog!

It must have a lot of salt and sugar to taste good to me.

favorite: crackers and carrots. I lived on peanut butter and carrots in college.

Luvs, you absolutely MUST try these!


I've been buying from this company at the yearly harvest festivals (they make amazing hot pepper jellies!) and last year I started eating their Peanut Butter. My 2 faves are the Thai ginger (which is so good to saute chicken in and then mix in with noodles!) and the Cinnamon Currant, which is truly fab.
The gals who run the company are so nice too, which is a big selling point for me.
