Smucker's Natural comes with a thick layer of oil on top that separates out when the PB stands. You're supposed to stir it back in but I pour it off. I measured once, and there was 6 tablespoons!
The de-oiled peanut butter is rather dry, but totally peanuty tasting since there's no added sugar or salt. I like it that way, and it's great for Chinese and Thai recipes. But if you're accustomed to Jif, Peter Pan, etc., you can always add a little sugar or Splenda.

LOVE peanut butter cookies. HATE peanut butter. I was a weird kid. Didn't like hotdogs or bologna or white bread, either.

I love peanuts in all forms, but they are a bit fatty, so hopefully Better'n Peanut Butter will be available here.

That's if you don't drain off the oil. But either way, it doesn't have any hydrogenated oils like most peanut butters so it's better for you. Peanut oil is actually a good oil, like olive oil. I have some Smuckers Naturals too, and I too pour off the oil. But this Better 'n Peanut Butter is so fabbo, I don't think I'll be buying anymore Naturals.

Oh okay. I thought you had to keep the oil and stir it up. I know the oils/fats in PB are good, but fat is fat and you have to watch it if you're on a diet especially. I can almost have as much Better'n Peanut Butter as I want!

And lately, everytime somebody new posts to this thread, I HAVE to make myself a PB sandwich with a glass of milk! I'd better get some or they'll have to use a forklift to get me to the fridge!

Well you're supposed to stir it up, but I'm the boss of my peanut butter around here.

So I had a PB&J sandwich with the new peanut butter and I was a little disappointed. The peanut flavor was drowned out by the grape jam. Maybe I didn't use enough PB. Have you noticed the same thing?

I don't like jam/jelly on PB so I haven't tried. I prefer it plain.

I like my PB sandwiches with honey instead of jelly. Would honey be too strong for this PB? Also, do they sell it at other stores? We don't have a Trader Joes.
