    I love peanut butter....and I only buy Jif.
    They have these nifty little sizes out now...instead of having to buy a huge jar, they have individual take-along containers.....about 6 to a pack I believe.
    Anyway, I just grab a container and I can eat it plain....good snack food.....and altho I like to eat it by itself, I like peanut butter on a Ritz cracker or a piece of celery.
    What do you enjoy peanut butter with??

    Peanuts cause inflammation and shouldn't be consumed by Humans unless they're prepared properly, and JIF isn't.

    But hey, it's your life right? Hope you like Colon Cancer.

    Store bought, manufactured Peanut Butter is made with Hydrogenated Oils which are unhealthy. Along with a lot of other preservatives and crap which I wont get into. Here's one way to properly prepare peanuts:

    I eat Cashews, Almonds, Walnuts and Macadamia nuts but I skip Peanuts entirely, no matter how they're prepared.

    JIF is awesome....but MS is right.
    We buy an organic peanut better that also has honey it, it is really good...but not like JIF.
    But in all seriousness Dabs - the taste of JIF is not worth the health hazards that come with eating food after food after food that contains hydrogenated oils, trans fats and modified wheat proteins.
    It is "Frankenfood"...and there is only one reason why food companies have systematically replaced natural ingredients with chemically pumped alternatives: it can sit on shelves for up to two years.
    Think about that...isn't there something wrong with that picture? Food isn't supposed to be able to sit on a shelf for two years.

    Interesting enough, mass produced, grocery store peanut butter has been implicated various outbreaks of food borne illnesses, specifically salmonella. If you can learn to make your own, that's probably the best, or find a locally produced source, maybe at a local farmers' market.
