Can Peanut Butter Really Be First Class?
The best peanut butter, hands down … is the jar with the most peanuts in it. This makes sense, right?
So, we can instantly eliminate Jiff and Skippy. And Peter Pan Peanut Butter can fly into the garbage, as well.
These peanut butters are loaded with hydrogenated oils and sugar.
In the past, I liked one of those normally-considered-disgusting brands of brown paste, from time to time … maybe once every other year. It was like succumbing to a fast-food-hamburger craving, when you normally eat gourmet burgers from sports bars.
For the past few years, I have left the junk peanut butters behind; instead, when I get that kind of sweet craving, I take some quality peanut butter, and mix in a bit of something sweet … maybe a bit of honey, agave nectar, or pure maple syrup.
Another secret trick is to make an open-faced peanut butter sandwich, and spring just a bit of sugar on top of the peanut butter. It gives you the sweet flavor with a fraction of the amount of sugar; plus, you are still avoiding all those bad-for-you hydrogenated oils.
Which Brand of Peanut Butter Is The Best?
Yes, there is a national brand of peanut butter that packs their jars with peanuts and a bit of salt … AND NOTHING ELSE!
Still, you don’t have to rely on brands. Simply avoid the oils and the sugars, and you’ll do fine. In other words, buy peanutty goodness that only contains peanuts and salt.

Now, how’s that for some first-class information?
And to some of us, peanut butter is a necessity in this world.
