To all peanut butter lovers, try Vermont Peanut Butter Company. They mix the most interesting potions... Mad River Mojo for example is a mixture of almond and peanut butter, dried cranberries, pumpkin, flax, and sunflower seeds. It is THE best ever, I use it in all cookie recipes and mix it in my oatmeal. Yum. And locally made in Stowe, Vermont.

I also wish all reviewed brands would be listed. Trader Joe's is national now, why isn't TJ's represented?

I am grateful for the reviews because now I've new brands to try. Will be adding to my shopping list.

what about the commercial supermarket brands? Jif, Skippy, and Peter Pan are very good. Even supermarket brands from Kroger and Safeway are tasty. The all natural brands are way overpriced and too runny. The oil separation is a huge turn-off

As a big time peanut butter lover who sometimes craves the sweet, I LOVE Naturally Nutty peanut & other nut butters. Favorites are Butter Toffee Peanut Butter and Vanilla Almond Butter...a little bit of texture, but you'll never even think about buying Jif or Peter Pan again!

Unfortunately, Adam's isn't QUITE a national brand. Cannot find it in the Colonies. Best brand I found in CT is Teddies. Had a friend bring us some Adam's when she came from CA for our wedding. My husband was totally hooked! He panicked when he reached the end of the jar so we bit the bullet and ordered 6 32-oz jars from the Adam's website. Expensive, but worth it!

why do you call these natural when salt and/or palm oil is an addiditive. I would think "natural" would b e just that, unadultrated ground peanuts with no additivies, e.g. Crazy Richard or Trader Joe's.
