Nut Butters

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know how much I love my peanut/nut butters. I love peanut butter like crazy. A day just cannot go by without at least a couple spoonfuls of the yummy stuff finding it’s way into my tummy. I’ve also started getting into almond butter. The stuff is peanut butter’s right hand man. Almost as good as peanut butter, but no way 😉

There used to be really only one type of peanut butter. “Regular.” Now though, you have all sorts of flavors, additions, and types, such as all natural, trans fat free, low fat, and organic. Companies such as PB & Company make lots of different kinds of peanut butter. The variety doesn’t even stop at peanut butter though. You can have sunflower seed butter, almond butter, cashew butter, and soynut butter as well. The possibilities are endless. Here’s my personal favorites and a little description about each. (In no particular order)moresss1

1. Full Circle Organic Peanut Butter: The first time I tried this, I thought it was a bit odd. But, after eating it more and more I started loving it. This peanut butter is very good on top of oatmeal and eaten straight out of the jar. It melts perfectly and it leaves that oh-so wonderful stickyness in your mouth that’ll make you jump for joy! Rating: 9/10100-25101

2. Skippy All Natural (both creamy/super chunk): I absolutely adore this peanut butter. It’s one of the creamiest all natural peanut butter I’ve ever come across, and it’s taste is impeccable. It is perfect in sandwiches esp. the classic combo of Peanut Butter and Jelly. It doesn’t melt as well as the Organic does, but it’s still mighty tasty atop oatmeal. Rating: 9.5/10skipcream1


3. Smuckers All Natural: To be honest, this is not my favorite peanut butter. I am not a fan of the oil separation style and the only thing I have found this nut butter to be good on is oatmeal. Some people love it, others don’t. Try it for yourself and maybe you will! Rating: 6.5/10ss_65smuckers

4. All Natural Krema: The number one reason why I love this peanut butter is because it’s only ingredient is peanuts. That is it. Nothing else. It is very, very creamy and melts like nothing else. Exceptionally yummy (esp. on oatmeal and ice cream) Rating: 8.5/10100_2550

5. PB & Company White Chocolate Wonderful: I cannot say that I dislike a single one of their products, and this one is by far my favorite. You can taste the peanut butter and the “chocolate” flavor isn’t overpowering at all. Simply Incredible. Suggested Use: everything! Rating: 9.5/1017010005_lg

6. PB & Company Dark Chocolate Dreams: I mean seriously, come on. What could possibly be bad about this? It’s amazing. Nuff said. I love it on top of oatmeal, in sandwiches, and on top of cereal with warm milk. Rating: 9/10dreams1

7. PB &C Company Cinnamon Raisin Swirl: This peanut butter is very nice, with a subtle flavor of cinnamon and actual raisins swirled in. I adore this peanut butter in sandwiches, with dried prunes, and on oatmeal. Rating: 9/10cinna

8. Jiff All Natural: I really suggest this peanut butter to people who are making the switch from regular to all natural and don’t want a major shock. It definitely tastes like all natural should, but it is still incredibly creamy, and a lot like the original. I highly suggest it, esp. on sandwiches and oatmeal! It’s also really good with pretzels dipped in! Rating: 9/10jif_natural_2409. PB & Company’s Mighty Maple: This peanut butter is one of my all time favorites. It’s taste and texture are great. Basically, this peanut butter will NOT disappoint! Suggested with: dried fruit, ice cream, sandwiches, and oatmeal. Pretty much everything 😉 Rating: 9.5/10mm10. PB & Company’s Bee’s Knee: OH MY WORD. Not that I like to play favorites, but this peanut butter has my heart! Rating: 10/10 bk11. Maranatha All Natural Almond Butter: Deeelicious! Definitely love the stuff. Highly suggested! Has a great, roasted taste. At least that’s how I describe it! Rating: 9/10 100_620012. Dark  Chocolate Almond Butter. Oh my, oh my! At first I thought the AB taste was too present, but after a few spoonfuls…DELISH! Rating: 8/10

13. Maranatha Organic PB. MMM, so creamy and tasty! Rating: 9/10

14. Trader Joe’s Creamy Unsalted Peanut Butter. LOVE! Who doesn’t love Trader Joe’s?? Rating: 9/10

My favorite ways to enjoy PB: on sandwiches, oatmeal, ice cream, cereal, with dried fruits (esp. prunes!), on kashi bars, with whole fruits (esp. apples!), and most importantly, by itself.

Enjoy! 😀

I love Skippy both for the price and the taste, but PB&Co. DEFINITELY knows home to make some quality nut butter, too. (:
