    I just tried the new highly rated PB2, and it taste fantastic. I found it at Ingles(of all places).

      After checking for PB2 at Ralphs (Kroger), Sprouts, and Whole Foods Markets without success, I scored at WalMart! I am eager to taste it, after reading the positive comments about it in my Nutrition Action newsletter.

    Just buy crushed peanuts without any additives, it’s delicious. Fairway, Whole Foods have machines on hand to grind peanuts.

    Skippy and Jiff may not have excessive sugar – but do they have real peanuts? They remove the good peanut oil and substitute cottonseed oil and other emulsifiers that are terrible. They are artery clogging fake phony concoctions loaded with unnecessary bad stuff. How can you promote these products?

    Dear Nutrition Action,

    Should we be concerned about the saturation of the fats in Jif/Skippy/PP, or is that, too, minimal enough to feel okay about? Thanks, Cindy

    Better yet, have your peanut butter fresh ground from organic peanuts at your health food store without salt or sugar. And even better than that is fresh ground almond butter.

    Fresh-ground peanut putter tastes the best! You get the aroma and flavor of real peanuts!

    Trader Joe unsalted crunchy ingredients: roasted peanuts. Enough said!

    it would be nice to see somebody like consumers reports, etc. test the different peanut butters on the market for salt, sugar, saturated fats, replaced oils, harmful chemicals, additives, etc. it sounds like the first lier doesn’t have a chance in this business.
