Today I’m writing about the most amazing peanut butter available, Smucker’s Organic Natural Peanut Butter. I’ve been buying this brand for years now, and compared to the traditional brands, it is devastatingly delicious.
I am a huge fan of peanut butter, and I eat (at least) a little bit every day. My son eats massive quantities of peanut butter, so it’s important that I buy him a good quality product.
The ingredients: peanuts and salt. The peanut butter you buy really shouldn’t have sugar, palm oil, or other ingredients you can’t pronounce in it.
I don’t always buy the organic product. If Marc’s (our discount grocery store) has organic, I will buy it, but if they don’t, I get the regular version. A lot of peanuts are pesticide contaminated, so organic is a good choice, but it is also very expensive. The non-organic version is about $3, and the organic about $4.29 at Marc’s. But I have seen the organic version for around $6 at other grocery stores. In either case, it’s better to buy a peanut butter without all the other unnecessary ingredients, whether you can afford organic or not.
What is that stuff at the top? It’s oil from the peanuts. Yes, you have to stir it. And yes, it’s kind of a pain in the ass. But, it’s so worth it. It’s so tasty!
