while I appreciate that taste is subjective, can any of the peanut butter experts offer an opinion of what tastes better:

Meridian
Duerr's
Skippy
Jif

All about Skippy for me. I know it contains some nasties tho.

Depends if you care about your health,

I don't know about the other brands but I know Duerrs uses palm oil (palm oil is banned in some countries)

Meridian/MyProtein are among the best, natural with no added crap, such as heaps of sugar.

I think issues with palm oil are more based on environmental concern rather than health? I know it is not nutritional ideal and has a lot of saturated fat in it but there is actually a growing amount of research suggesting saturated fat may not be as bad for you as previously thought.

Obviously the more natural brands you suggest are not loaded with sugar etc so I am sure they will be better for you than the like of Skippy but heck I enjoy Skippy and as my mother would say.....everything in moderation

Only ever have the Whole Earth Organic Peanut Butter usually which I love but have just ordered 2 tubs of this after also hearing good things. Cheers OP!

I'm a fan of all peanut butter but if you do buy meridian don't chuck away the oil that separates and floats on top as it will then be very dry! Overall you know your putting good stuff into your body

Seriously as soon as I manage to drop my calorie intake an awesome peanut butter deal comes along

hmm, is this instore too or only offline?

That's how HUKD works for me too.

Duerrs have the lowest carb content.
Anyone know if Meridian almond butter on offer too at H&B?

Edit: I see the offers online too will check for myself.

There is, and always will be counter claims to any argument.

Saturated fats have been shown in many cases to raise cholesterol - that alone is a reason to avoid it.

Pay your money make your choice. I know I'll be sticking with the things closest to raw and natural as possible over the brands that 'taste good' because of their added sugar and shortcut manufacturing processes for profit.

Hi

Thanks a lot. Just bought peanut butter plus loads of other stuff

thank you all for your comments and opinions

while I am well aware of the concerns over the high cholesterol content - that can be said for many things that we eat, but - in moderation they should not be so much of a concern. Many things contain things that are bad for us if 'abused' but careful eating choices are in order for me, because if I only ate the things that are truly good for me healthwise I would get very bored very quickly

thanks for the tip 'ashraf86uk' regarding ensuring that I keep the oil that separates from the Meridian brand

Smooth version available as well.

To be honest I have never heard of this brand, Great fan of Skyppy. is this soft, I hate dried ones, can't spread them on toast. currently using Aldi one that came in a small plastic pot, and its yummy, but it seams that is off the shelves for some strange reason, and they only got one in glass jars, that is well dry. is this on par with Skippy then?

Meridian is a natural brand unlike America who stock many products from a brand our supermarkets will typically only stock almond + peanut butter that's probably why not a lot know of them

If you get the smooth one then it's easier to spread on toast

As healthy as this is it's not the greatest tasting stuff IMO, I prefer the taste of the stuff that's bad for you! (Just don't buy anything with palm oil!)

Skippy is more creamy whereas Meridian is more oily, but it does spread nicely (especially the smooth version). You do have to really stir it every time you use it. Personally I prefer the taste of Meridian anyway.

Also a not to be sniffed at 10% via Quidco. Its worth getting their reward card too. I'm by no means a regular H&B shopper and had 2.50 sitting there for ages so nabbed 6 tubs for around £16 after quidco. It'll be mainly for chocolate and peanut butter cookies. The layer of oil is great at keeping them soft.
