I make my own from peanuts I get from Whole Foods, or I just grind them there with their grinders. I switch up from time to time though, I will make mixed nut butters, a handful of almonds, a handful of peanuts a handful of cashews. I also make some seed butters on occasion. I like to then mix the butters with wild flower honey and dip some fresh baked bread in it.

My favorite is like what I grew up with - just peanuts and salt.

The kinds of peanut butter that don't separate have hydrogenated fats added to them. I don't want those. I also prefer no sugar.
The type of peanuts matter, how fresh they were, and how they were roasted.

1-Trader Joe's
2-Adams creamy salted

That's my choice, too. I prefer the texture over the "natural" PBs that are runny. It has lower sodium and 33% less sweeteners than regular Jif, but it spreads like regular commercial peanut butter. I preferred this brand immediately upon tasting it. It's not available in every supermarket in my area. I was afraid that once Jif started to heavily market their "Natural" brand they would take Simply Jif off the shelves. But, so far, I've still been able to find it a few places.

Yeah, those oils are really bad for you, they are like the trans.

I always liked Peter Pan Creamy but discovered Kroger's own brand tastes just like it so I've eaten it for years. And I always spread butter on the other slice of bread when making a PB sandwich.

Agree with the poster who mentioned apples and peanut butter as a favorite snack - me too!

I too used to love Peter Pan Creamy brand. Then my mom got us hooked on Honey Roast Peter Pan. That was addictive as well.

I grew up on natural PB - like Adam's - so as an adult, that is the only kind I like.

Here is a good snack when you are craving something sweet (but don't have much in the cupboards) - take a spoonful of PB and dip it into a bag of chocolate chips. Eat. Repeat as needed.

I'm not much of a peanut butter fan, but Skippy's Natural Peanut Butter on the rare occasion I eat the stuff. I prefer actual peanuts and other kinds of nuts.
