Lisa asks: What's your favorite brand of natural peanut butter?


My favorite brand of peanut butter is Trader Joe's organic

My favorite brand is Simply Jif Creamy peanut butter - 2 g. sugar and sodium is only 65 g. per 2 tbsp. Also gluten free.

May I know why the most delicious and WHOLESOME brand (it doesn't have anything other than PEANUTs) isn't included in your list of four? Those mentioned by you have more than simply peanuts. I would love to know your rationale of NOT including CRAZY RICHARDs (aka Krema) Peanut Butter brand. Thanks in advance.

Crazy Richards Peanut Butter; nothing but pure wholesome peanut butter. Like how GOD intended it to be.

Zimmerman's - natural unsalted from Harrisburg, PA. We get it in 5 lb. tubs.
Otherwise we sometimes make fresh at home in a food processor. I never get tired of it.

Crazy Richard's peanut butter has no added sugars or oil and doesn't have to be refrigerated.

Teddie contest. It's one of the few that's actually natural. Just peanuts and a touch of salt. Wish I could get in South Africa where I now live.

my own! 3 cups of peanuts, whizzed up in my VitaMix blender. I control everything that goes in and it is so yummy! the funniest thing is that this homemade peanut butter is easy to wash out of the jar before I fill it again.
