very good. for a change up in your diet, try almond butter. slightly less hard to spread, looks and tastes just as nutty and I'm liking it a lot better. Just make sure you get Natural PB and Natural almond or nut butters. Don't even think Skippy is healthy.

Can someone recommend a brand of "natural" peanut butter or almond butter? and where to get it? I only have peterpan in the pantry and I am assuming that is no good. I want to start adding pb and apples to my diet.
In the past I have noticed some "diabetic" pb at the local Foodworld and tried it. HOLY crap it was horrible! Surely there is something better. I don't expect to taste like skippy or peterpan of course, but damn. :D

Kroger, Meijer Brand Natural PB is just as good as Jiffy and the other "bad" PB.

I buy this stuff called: Teddie's Unsalted Natural PB. I think some of the major brands are making natural PB's as well but be sure you read the labels to verify. Natural PB's will have their oils floating on top which need to be mixed back in. Also, no sugar is added as well. Salted or unsalted is up to your personal preference.

At normal groceries, my brand of choice is Laura Scudder's all natural. My old roommate would buy his peanut butter at GNC. It is something called "Power Butter." At $15, it is something I wouldn't recommend as a staple.

I went to this store where a lot of the foods were in boxes, and there was dirt all over the floor. In the picnic aisle they had this stuff called "Smashed Salty Nuts"

I guess it was peanut butter.

I can't believe no one mentioned JIF. :confused:

Is that a good one? or bad?

I'm pretty sure JIF doesn't make a natural PB so I would say bad. I also second Max-Mex's recommendation of Teddie's.

I moved from Detroit to Boston and I really miss Meijer. The greatest grocery store in the country...

Avoid store brand peanut butter at all costs. Most of it is packed with saturated fat and has no flavor whatsoever. It's basically brown crisco.

The Meijer and Kroger brand ingredients....

Peanuts, Salt

Anything wrong with that ? :ninja:

No, that is fine. Most natural PB only has these ingredients.

Would anyone know if the Soynut butter is just as beneficial as natural peanut butter?

For the most part. Peanuts aren't real nuts. They are legumes from what I remember (same as soybeans).
