  1. Thanks for that article. I’ll look out for those brands. I love peanut butter. Maybe now I can eat more of it.

  2. I like Peanut butter too but we do not have those brands here in NZ, drat I’ll have to do my own research! Very informative article.

  3. Thanks, Icy, now I can pick up one of these when I don’t have time to make peanut butter.
    Your article is very well written. It is always good to learn about our nutrition.

  4. I like my peanut butter too. I usualy make my own in the grocery store and it is so yummy. Helpful information

  5. Really good article, I for some reason am not crazy about peanut butter but do try to eat it occasionally. I do like it in sauces and cooking with it. I know how healthy it is, you added to my knowledge about the different kinds out there, thanks for that!

    *I give it to my puppy, she loves it:))

  6. A lot of interesting facts Icy. Thank you very much for the information.

  7. Good information, enjoyed the article!

  8. Icy, here at my house, my wife and I are big peanut butter eaters. We could eat this stuff by the case. My wife especially.
    She gets the biggest spoon she can find and eats it right out of the jar! There are two brands here I haven’t heard of: Naturally More and Maranatha. I haven’t seen either one in this area. Great article! I like to put peanut butter on a piece of cheese and fold the cheese over and eat it. This is my version of what I call home-made peanutbutter cheese crackers,except without the cracker. Try it. You’ll like it!

  9. Thank you all for wonderful comments..

  10. I never knew Jiff wasn’t healthy.

  11. how can you put Skippy natural on this list? It has palm oil in it!!!

  12. Does anyone remember the peanut butter called Glove Kid. Do they still make it?

  13. I am surprised you put Skippy Natural on the list also! Apparently you’re not reading the labels carefully. Doesn’t it have added sugar and salt. It has to have some trans fat to keep it from separating. Crazy Richards (owned by Smuckers) is a much better choice! It is relatively inexpensive also. With no trans fats, it does have to be stirred. It has no added salt or sugar. The only ingredient is peanuts. Simply Jif is not a bad choice even though it does have some trans fat because it is low in added salt and sugar.

  14. no trans fat just means the brands pumped up the saturated fats! that is equally as bad for you. this article is really uninformed. skippy, at least, uses palm oil, which is a known health no-no.

  15. Crazy Richard’s is better than all of these other choices

  16. Sure do remember Glove Kid! It was one of the original generic brands of PB before generics became what they are today. As kids we teased our Mom and Dad about this “off the wall stuff” but we ate it and even LIKED it! Now, I buy generics even though we`re in much better financial shape than our parents were. Never thought then that Glove Kid would be such a happy memory today.

  17. First off coming from a nutritionist, Palm Oil, which took a major blow from the marketing advertisers back in the 90’s was studied and discovered now unless you take it in extremely large amounts it’s actually loaded with Vitamin E and is said to lower cholesterol. But I don’t expect everybody to read FDA reports all the time either.

    I tend to have organic peanut butter like MaraNatha so I’d stick to that brand above the rest on that list.

    Also if you want another great health food like peanut butter to add to your list add whey protein. While we’re keeping things organic this is jam packed with Gluthatione – the number one antioxidant on the planet. I wrote an article over here you should check out on organic whey protein powder. Let me know what you think!

  18. Yes, I remember Glove Kid Peanut because it was my family’s business for many years. It was made in Lynchburg Virginia and was owned by the H.A. Robinson family and yes it was a lot like the organic peanut butter of today. It was separated and the oil was on top and you had to stir it before you ate it. As a child in the family during the fifties and early sixties, I wanted the peanut butter that Peter Pan made because it was sweeter. No such luck!
    anyway the company was sol in the sixties. And was sold under that label for a while then discontinued.
