Two brands I know of that can be bought in a regular grocery store are Adams 100% Natural and Laura Scudder's. Of the two I prefer the L.S's as it tastes more "peanutty" to me. Of course everyones' tastes are different so you'll have to try them for yourself. HTH

Since Skippy stoped making carb option 3 net carbs per 2 T. peanut butter they have come out with Skippy natural which has a pretty good taste and is only 4 net carb pere 2 T.
It just isnt advertise as low carb.

Our Kroger and Meijer stores carry a natural brand that are pretty cheap.

I get my Smucker's Natural Peanut Butter at WalMart. Just give it a stir and refrigerate. It's very, very good!

If you are anywhere near Trader Joe's, try their brand - they have chunky or smooth, salted or not! They're very good, contain no sugars or transfats, and to top all that off they're very inexpensive compared to the national brands!

I'll second that! I love Trader Joes chunky pb but it's gotta be salted for me! I eat it right of the jar with a spoon. Yum!

Definitely a Trader Joe's PB fan here. I refrigerate mine after opening it and mixing it all up. YUMMY

I did that once and the PB was very dry! Stir it in then refrigerate so it stays stirred in.

I agree about the Smucker's Peanut Butter. To me, it tastes like the insides of a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. Kind of like how roasted almonds taste like the nuts inside of a Hershey Bar.

Yup, smuckers here, unless I venture to Kroger (further from my house) to buy thier natural pb. It is cheaper and, imho, as good of quality as the smuckers.
