Time to settle this: The BEST Peanut Butter is PLANTERS! Yes!

Time to settle the great Peanut Butter Debate by sharing the gospel of Planter’s Peanut Butter. I know this is contentious (among the biggest arguments in our office, right up there with Which Breakfast Place in Victoria is the Best/Worst, people have lost limbs over that one…) but I have to do it. I have to inform the masses! This is definitely the best, chunky or smooth.


Not ashamed at how many I have hoarded… Old on left VS new on right. 

The only issue I have is that they recently changed their packaging and it’s doing my head in. They are both 1kg, but the new one looks/is shaped significantly smaller. This leads me straight down the road to suspicion- when is 1kg not 1kg? ARGH. Yes, I do have several jars hoarded at home. You never know when you might need 3-4 jars of peanut butter.

Anyways, photo evidence attached. I have yet to take this to a scale or better yet, The Planters Peanuts Company themselves, but I’m seriously considering it…

And don’t come at me Adams Peanut Butter People- you know your place…And no way am I stirring peanut butter or keeping it in a fridge. Sacrilege!!

  1. First, I want to say I love your blog. However, I want to say I disagree about Planter’s PB. Isn’t sugar the second ingredient on the list? I mean, it’s a short list of ingredients which is better than Skippy’s and whatnot but I feel like any PB with added sugar is less like PB and more like icing, you know? And that’s delicious but not a good idea for how often I eat PB (which is multiple times per day).

    I’m ok with Adam’s but I prefer organic stuff. The only problem with most organic PB is they don’t add salt to it and it’s bland as all hell so I add 1 tsp of salt per kg of PB. That’s probably a little saltier than most like it but what can I say, I love salt.

    And for what it’s worth, I never put my natural or organic PB in the fridge. It only requires a light stir but it doesn’t go bad or anything like that.

    Thanks again for your great blog!


    • Hahah I am definitely not an ‘organic only’ person, but to be honest I have to be very careful with the real peanut butters because they tend to sensitize very quickly and trigger allergies for me! Strange eh? But taste-wise, I have to say I preferred Planters regardless 😉
