    Natty PB - Cant get it :(

    I've never had natural peanut butter before so I thought Id pick some up but cannot find it! The big grocery chain here in town is sold out of the Smuckers brand, and they say thats all they normally carry. I haven't seen it there in the 4 weeks that Ive been looking.

    Can't find it anywhere else either. I really want to try this stuff lol.

    Try a natural foods store or a health food store...they will probably have it

    I could give all to Time except - except
    What I myself have held. But why declare
    The things forbidden that while the Customs slept
    I have crossed to Safety with? For I am There,
    And what I would not part with I have kept.

    If you have a food processor you can make it pretty easily. I think spanish peanuts work the best because they contain the most oil. If you can't find those just get some peanut oil to add.

    I work part-time at a grocery store and we don't carry any, either. I keep bugging my store manager to buy it, but he says nobody would buy it ..

    Sounds like its going to be interesting lol.

    I just want to open myself up to more options. I like regular peanut butter, but it contains a **** load of fat. What are the stats on Natty?

    Natty peanut butter has the same amount of fat as regular pb. The Smucker's brand that I have has 200 cals and 16g of fat per 2 tablespoons, which is about exactly the same as say Jif. Although the main point in getting natty pb is that it doesn't contain trans-fats. Most GNC's carry natty pb and other products like cashew butter.

    Well your still going to have high fat levels in natural pb, the big difference is that there probably will be 'no added sugar' which the regular brands are crammed with.
    The only limits are the one's you place on yourself...

    Yeah, I bought some of that, but it's basically the original Peanut Butter with a crappy taste and more carbs.

    I am looking at a jar of reduced fat Jif. It has peanuts, corn syrup solids, sugar and soy protein listed as the ingredients. Also has 2 percent or less of fully hydrogenated vegetable oils. SO the sugar and corn syrup solids are probably making up the bulk of the remaining 40%.

    I've been using the Peter Pan reduced sodium. It also has less sugar, and seems to be everywhere I shop.

    Well apparently my grocery store will be getting in some today. I guess we will see.

    As for walmart, mine doesn't carry it. Weird too, because this is a brand new (less than 6 month old) super walmart.

    I don't the age of the walmart is going to have anything to do with if they carry natty pb. Its really gonna depend on the area. Lot of health concious type people. IMO. I never even heard about until I came to this site.
    I do like the superwalmarts and Big K all your shopping one place. Except there no good for loacal stores.

    Is this what Natty PB tastes like? I had one taste and threw the rest of the jar away

    You're probably just used to the taste of the processed PB which has a lot of sugar and other things added. Natty PB is just ground peanuts and tastes like it.

    Same thing with processed store bacon versus bacon right off the pig...you'd never know that they're allegedly the same thing. All that processing and added stuff really changes the flavor.

    What I myself have held. But why declare
    The things forbidden that while the Customs slept
    I have crossed to Safety with? For I am There,
    And what I would not part with I have kept.
