Organic Creamy Salted Peanut Butter
February 2, 2015—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
Trader Joe's Organic Creamy Salted Peanut Butter is made with Valencia peanuts. This variety of peanut - grown only in Texas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma - is naturally sweet and intensely peanutty (new word alert!), eliminating the need to add any kind of sweeteners or flavor enhancers. In other words, no sugar here. In fact, we use only two ingredients to make the Peanut Butter - organic Valencia peanuts and sea salt. It needs nothing else. Really. Our plan is to have this Organic Creamy Salted Peanut Butter available all the time, but due to the somewhat limited availability of Valencia peanuts, you may find that there are certain times of year when it's not on our shelves. Our advice? Stock up now, and avoid disappointment later. We're selling each 16 ounce jar (certified kosher) for $3.49. You'll find it in our grocery aisle.
(A note to "natural" peanut butter newbies: We don't use hydrogenated oils to solidify the peanut butter, so the natural oils will rise to the top of the jar. Want to get everything blended together? Easy. When you bring it home, put it in the fridge upside down. When you're ready to start enjoying it, turn it right side up, give it a quick stir and dig right in.)
