Love the butter but hate the separation?


There’s nothing worse than opening up a new jar, putting a knife or spatula in to mix, and getting oil all over you, the jar and the counter.

EAP - Just buy Kraft Peanut Butter and you can avoid having to buy a stirrer. Besides, “natural” peanut butter (whatever “natural” means – as far as I can tell, if it exists in the universe, it’s natural) tastes terrible and has a disgusting consistency. Remember Smoothie and Crunchy?

“We’re the Kraft Peanut Butter teddy bears,
With a fresh little story to tell.
Kraft Peanut Butter stays fresher in the jar,
Than peanuts (cha-cha-cha) in the shell!”

Kristin - I eat “natural” almond or peanut butter every single morning on my toast and here is my advice:

Take a knife. Plunge the knife into the almond/peanut butter. Stab it a few times to mix it up a bit. Remove knife and spread on toast. Lick knife, or remove residue with finger. Place knife in dishwasher and place almond/peanut butter back in the fridge.

Kraft peanut butter is disgusting! It’s texture is…unnatural.

Shannen - I’m with EAP. Go Kraft.

EAP - I’ve tried “natural” peanut butter before and all I can say about it is that I’d rather lie in a pit of my own purulent nasty than ever eat it again. Kraft, on the other hand, is the undisputed king of peanut butter.

Still no one has explained why Kraft PB is any less “natural” than the so-called “natural” PB, They both exist in nature, made of materials that are found in nature. The label “natural” has about as much meaning as “organic”, which is just another marketing ploy to get you to buy product A over product B.

Jessie - I am firmly in camp natural PB! And this is hard for me to admit – after being subjected to it throughout my childhood and swearing that as soon as I grew up it’d be Skippy’s all the way! (Skippy’s does have its place – you know, the one with the peanut on top?)

Once I became old enough to control my own supply of nut butters, I realized that the natural shit just tastes better. Plus, no sugar added – and with the Kraft and co. PB’s they take out the natural oils and add some other oils and add sugar. So in my mind they are very different products.

I totally want one of those gadgets. That’d be a great stocking stuffer!
