I just verified that the (half-eaten) jar of TJ's organic pb I have is not on the list. Whew! I'm going to savor this jar, since it may be a while before the stores stock the shelves.

For someone who eats a lot of peanut butter, I was hoping that my brand wasn't on the list.  It's
not...whew!  I used to buy my pnb at TJs but just switched brands.

Check this list

My almond butter and peanut butter are not on the list. Great!

Whew, is right.  Trader Joe's just opened in September here and this is the second jar of peanut butter (bought some strawberry jelly also) that I bought.  

It's not on the list and what a relief.  I've been dealing with too much already.

Thanks Chloe for posting.

For now, I think the only thing we care about is that we aren't poisoned by salmonella. :)

I used to LOVE Jif because it was sweeter and tastier than most of the brands in the HFS.

BUT I found a brand better than any I've ever tasted.....Woodstock Farms

It is funny how we are so different about taste. I dislike Jif with a passion because is TOO sweet! I have been eating organic peanut butter for over forty-five years. My taste buds are definitely set in their ways. Does anybody remember Walnut Acres? I got our very first organic peanut butter from them! I still remember how delicious it was when I first tasted it!

I haven't eaten Jif in eons but it's one of the only pnb I could buy when my kids were little.  They
add sweeteners....so does Skippy. I grew up eating Skippy pnb.

Walnut Acres, Yes Spring....that company still exists....I just don't see their pnb anymore and what I can find of theirs is sauces and juices....And probably some big food giant bought them out.  The smaller companies just couldn't survive on their own.

Walnut Acres is just one of a number of brands that Hain Celestial group uses to market their products.

The current line of products is different from those associated with the farm that Paul and Betty Keene used to have called Walnut Acres.

I used to love to get their catalogs. Pages and pages of delicious stuff. Getting an order from them was like opening a Christmas box! I think I still have at least one of their catalogs here somewhere. I never got to visit the farm, but I certainly would have enjoyed it. I would always order some great snacks from them to take with us when we were taking a trip.

I was introduced to them by a friend who had gotten a huge tub of peanut butter from them as a gift. Her brother knew she loved their peanut butter so he ordered her about five pounds of it for her birthday as a joke, and she gave me a big jar full. It was soooo good! (drool)
