We are some serious peanut butter eaters in our house. (Well, except for the one allergic kid. He doesn't eat it - duh.) We eat peanut butter sandwiches, put peanut butter in smoothies, eat it in recipes, smooth it on banana bread, and even eat it straight from the jar. We go through, on average, four jars a week.
I told you, we eat some insane amounts of the stuff.
We have pretty strict parameters for the peanut butter we consume. No hydrogenated oils, no sugars,just the peanuts and the salt. Usually, we buy the Smucker's, Trader Joe's or Whole Foods, if I'm lucky enough to get there. But, when the Parent Bloggers Network asked for volunteers to test the new Maranatha No Stir organic peanut butter, I just about broke my fingers typing YES. We sampled both the creamy and chunky organic no stir peanut butter.
The big plus for this peanut butter is the no stir concept. I don't know about you, but I HATE stirring the peanut butter back together again and again. It's definitely a work out for the arms, I can tell you that. But this stuff stays smooth and creamy, even when it's first taken out of the fridge. That's a very, very good thing.
I liked the flavor of this peanut butter. It's smooth and very peanutty. There are no hydrogenated oils in it, a bonus. The one drawback - the only drawback - is the added sugar. That might very well keep me from buying this peanut butter.
This is a yummy, delicious peanut butter that you never, ever have to stir. It's a very good thing.
