It doesn't take much to make delicious, perfect-for-a-sandwich peanut butter. That's the reason it's always surprised us that the "big names" in peanut butter add all kind of sweeteners and oils - simple really is better. Trader Joe's Creamy Salted Peanut Butter is simple, and simply scrumptious. There are two ingredients inside every jar: peanuts and salt. That's it.
Using peanuts from the southeastern United States, our supplier produces Trader Joe's Creamy Salted Peanut Butter exclusively for us in Georgia. The peanuts are dry roasted and ground with the skins still on - this really enhances the flavor of the finished peanut butter. Unlike some of other peanut butters with added partially hydrogenated oils, ours does not solidify - the oils do separate from the solids. A quick stir, and refrigeration after opening, are all you need to rectify this. For your "trouble", you're rewarded with peanut butter that actually tastes like... peanuts! It's a wonderful thing to taste.
We're selling each 16 ounce jar of Creamy Salted Peanut Butter for $2.49, every day - a terrific everyday value. You'll find it in our grocery aisle.
