When I was young, PB (crunchy, of course) was used to fill the groove in a stalk of celery. I was ridiculously anal about exactly filling the groove, but it was my favorite snack.

Crunchy PBJ w/mustard is basic for me. Add a banana and it's at another level.

I would have voted for crunchy, but the DW only wants smooth, so that's what she buys and that is what I'm forced to eat...unless I was to get off my butt and go buy some myself.

Keep some roasted peanuts or almonds, or other nut of choice on hand. Smash some up with the side of a knife on a cutting board (like smashing garlic). Add that to the creamy for some added crunch and flavor.

I guess it is easier to add crunchy bits than to try to separate them out! The onus is on you to keep peace in the family!

It had better have peanuts and salt and nothing else. Preferably organic. I don't want no sweeteners or partially hydrogenated crap to keep it from separating.

Favorite - Sata Cruz Dark Roast Crunchy.

THE MARATHONS
"Peanut Butter"
(Bill Barnum / Martin Cooper / Cliff Goldsmith / Fred Smith)

There's a food goin' around that's a sticky sticky goo
(Peanut, peanut butter)
Oh well it tastes real good, but it's so hard to chew
(Peanut, peanut butter)
All my friends tell me that they dig it the most
(Peanut, peanut butter)
Early in the morning when they spread it on toast
(Peanut, peanut butter)
I like peanut butter, creamy peanut butter
Chunky peanut butter too

....

Well, I went to a dinner and what did they eat
(Peanut, peanut butter)
Ah-well, I took a big bite and it stuck to my teeth
(Peanut, peanut butter)
Now everybody look like they got the mumps
(Peanut, peanut butter)
Just-a eatin' peanut butter in-a great big hunks
(Peanut, peanut butter) ....

PB ... best eaten with a spoon. PB on anything other than a plate is fattening.

When we lived in England, I learned that English people do not like peanut butter and consider it odd. Then again, they eat baked beans on toast, which sounds odd to an American. So it is all very much a matter of what you are used to.

What's the origin of peanut butter? It was invented at the end of 19th century, but did not become popular until the Great Depression.

My local supermarket has two grinders available, one with a bin full of peanuts, the other with almonds.

You stick a plastic tub under the spout and hit the button to grind as much peanut or almond butter as you like into the tub, then weight and label it.

Pure peanuts or almonds, nothing else. Fantastic stuff.

I do wonder about the bolded part with regard to increased aflatoxin exposure*.
I used to make my own PB from raw Valencia/Spanish peanuts that I then roasted and ran through a Champion juicer , good stuff.... until the peanuts disappeared from the local shelves with the explanation of peanut allergy liability(?). Now it is Trader Joe's regular smooth.

Smooth. I do go the PB&J route as well but my 'J' is for Jam rather than Jelly and would be happy to have preserves as well as my fruit spread.

Reminds me of a trip I went on once, a Mystery Bus Trip. Never again, probably because if you knew where they were taking you, you'd stay at home. We toured a peanut butter factory, a whistle factory, a soap factory, a post office, can't remember the rest. Also went to some legion hall for a meal and entertainment. It was a woman midget paying the accordion. And she liked polka music. Apparently this is all Columbus Ohio had to offer us at the time. A long way to go for nothing.

I prefer Mr. Jiff crunchy on apples and also on waffles with other mixed nuts added in for extra crunchiness.

There's stuff called PB2 that's powdered peanut butter...all the PB without the oil. My PB beer was not too good, but there's a commercial one called "Sweet Baby Jesus" that's supposed to be like a Reese's Cup. Those kinds of beers aren't close enough to beer for me, though.

I like crunchy peanut butter (only peanuts and salt) spread on whole grain toast with a dollop of bitter orange marmalade. I also enjoy almond butter.
