I love peanut butter in so many forms! I'm pretty traditional, so my ideas include: as a breakfast substitute with an apple, or as an integral part of PB & J toast (GRAPE jelly/jam!) and a large glass of milk. It's also great in a protein drink or on a warm slice of freshly baked bread! Also as the main ingredient in peanut butter cookies or chocolate oatmeal no-bakes - yum! Just on the spoon or with any form of chocolate on the side, I will take it and enjoy!!

Peanut Butter goes with just about anything, including chili powder. My best receipe is doggie cookies for my two large dogs. Peanut Butter is the main ingredient with only 4 more ingredients. Easy to make but tough on the muscles. As with any home made cooking they are greatly appreciated by the recipent.

I am originally from Czech Republic. To this date, peanut butter isn't very well known there and I certainly had no idea about its existence until at the age of 19 I made my first trip to a capitalist country - to England. There I absolutely fell in love with peanut butter and brought several jars back home with me. But can you imagine my suffering when after having eaten them all I wasn't able to find peanut butter in the Czech stores? If I was lucky, I managed to get a (bad) substitute from time to time, but nothing close to the real thing. And then I moved to the peanut butter paradise - the USA!!! Peanut butter was the first thing I bought on the US soil (well, some other things to go with it, too, like bread, milk, and a map). Since then I've always made sure to have a stack of peanut butter on hand. I don't need fancy food. Give me a jar of PB and I'm happy!

We love to have 365 Everyday Peanut Butter on crackers with a nice cup of green tea. The combination is heavenly !

Not a day goes by that I don't have some form of peanut butter. I love making peanut butter soy protein shakes. Usually I'll throw in some banana and maybe some unsweetened cocoa or carob powder. They are a great booster after my morning workout!

It took me a while to get used to the natural peanut butter and once I did there is no going back! These are some of my favorites: Apples with Peanut Butter, The Elvis Fried pnut, btr,and banana sandwich - is amazing... only had it once, so delicious but won't go there again... I love the melty yumminess of peanut butter on hot - right out of the toaster - toast! Peanut butter cookies are my favorite cookie! Indonesian Chicken with Spicy Peanut sauce is the best. In Girl Scouts, we made these really great energy bites for the girls to take on a hike: peanut butter, crisy rice cereal, raisins, chopped dates, chopped nuts. chilled the mixture, scooped and rolled in wax paper twisting the ends. The kids loved them, and they were easy to carry. Of course there are the home made Peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate... those are really great too! Scoop it right out of the jar... and eat! When I want a sweet treat, a peanut butter, banana, and agave syrup drizzled over the banana's sandwich. That takes care of the sweet tooth really well. Chex has a recipe for Chocolate Peanut butter munchies, well I have a cookie... CHOCOLATE PEANUTBUTTER COOKIE BITES: Make a recipe of Peanut butter cookies and make them small - drop by tsp onto cookie sheet, once baked, dip in a mixture of chocolate, peanut butter and butter, then drop into confectioners sugar and coated well. Place on a rack to solidify. I took these to a baby shower and they disappeared in minutes! So good!

Grilled peanut butter sandwich is one of my favorite ways to eat peanut butter. For breakfast I sometimes mix peanut butter with cream cheese and use as a spread for my toast.

The list of ideas is endless in our family! I have a famous pb M & M cookie recipe, but have recently come across a new recipe for pb cookies with chocolate chunks, and surprisingly the 365 chunky works the best. As for my husband, it would be the classic pb and j, and for my 5 yo. daughter, it would be ants on a log, or a boat, or a canoe, or a raft. And for my 2 yo. daughter, it would be a big scoop on her plate so she could dip whatever she had on it that day...carrots, cukes, snap peas, crackers, or goldfish. As for my dad, it would definitely have to be chunky on Ritz, and for my mom, it would be in a smoothy with a banana and almond milk. And for my other brother, it would have to be on his BLT, and for me...if I have the time, it would definitely be a pb and banana sandwich, but usually it's just a big scoop right out of the jar!

My husband eats it on toast with bananas while I mix it with raisins and dip celery into it. And we can't forget about our dog~she loves peanut butter especially if I make her peanut butter biscotti (thanks Rachel Ray for the recipe). But really, we can all eat them:)

Our family loves peanut butter. We use it for the traditional PB&J, but also on apples, bananas, toast, or even the occasional hot fudge (and peanut butter) sundae! When I was pregnant for my son, peanut butter on graham crackers was about the only thing I could eat to stave off the morning sickness (which really occurred all day). Plus, I use peanut butter in my grandmother's homemade fudge recipe. It is simply divine. I would say we would use a case of peanut butter very quickly as it is a ubiquitous ingredient in much of what we eat.

Life without peanut butter? Unthinkable! I never would have made it through college without it--it was a welcome diversion from those decidedly incorrectly-identified "meal plans." Ugh. In fact, it's still a comfort-food-staple in my diet, whether it's in a peanut butter sandwich, eaten with apples, or an ingredient in cookie or Asian-food recipes. The possibilities are delectably endless!

I would be in "heaven" if I could win a case of peanut butter. I start off my day with peanut butter. I am a runner and the best post-run snack are carbs with protein. So I get a piece of "seeduction" bread (from the bakery at whole foods) and spread the creamy 365 organic (unsweetened) PB on my bread (well actually toast because I pop the bread in the toaster first). Nothing like a warm piece of bread with smooth, warm peanut butter on it to start your day off on the right foot. PB is not only a great post-run snack, but my guilty pleasure. You would keep a smile on my face everyday with a case of your 365 Peanut Butter!!!

Thank goodness my spouse is NOT allergic to peanuts, or we might never have married and been together for 21 years! What can I say . . . a case of crunchy ground specially selected tasty organic Spanish peanuts, I'd go head over heels "nuts" with excitement!!! I would wake each morning eager for all sorts of new peanut butter adventures: Lettuce Wraps with Chile Peanut Noodles, Peanutty Udon Noodle Tofu Salad, Curry Coconut Peanut Sauce, Chicken Satay, Peanut Butter with Ovaltine, Peanut Butter Bananas, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies, and of course, the ubiquitous peanut butter sandwiches and peanut butter on a spoon! All so heavenly and all so satisfyingly delicious and nutritious! Signed, Proud Peanut-butter-holic

I grew up in a family of 10 very active kids. It took a lot of peanut butter to keep us from being hungry and it just flew out of our house. We loved peanut butter and, as adults, all of us still do. We all eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, peanut butter and apple or banana sandwiches, peanut butter on apples and pears, peanut butter cookies, peanut butter celery logs and peanut butter stirred into ice cream. Finding wonderful peanut butter at Whole Foods only made our love for it greater. If I won a case of peanut butter, I'd share it with family and friends close by and share some also with the local food pantry so other families with hungry kids could be less hungry for a while.

My all time favorite meal is a plump, crisp round waffle: Put butter all over the waffle, plop a sunny side up egg in the middle, spread peanut butter (smooth only - my preference), all over the top, except of course the egg, then top with warm maple syrup - not including the egg. Eat the waffle up to the egg and then break the yolk and it will saturate the egg shaped circle. Sheer heaven and no carbs, calories or fat .... YEAH RIGHT.

I have eaten a PB&J sandwich every single day since I started Kindergarten. I just can't go a day without it! Recently, I ran out of jelly, so I used grapes instead, and it made for a wonderfully crunchy, sweet, and juicy lunch! My husband is from Venezuela, and I actually got to make him his first PB&J sandwich. He loved it, and I have pictures of him eating it! Now that we're both peanut butter lovers, we've taken jars of the good stuff to his family in South America. They all love it, and always take at least two jars of it back with them when they come visit!

Personally I LOVE PEANUT BUTTER N BANANA GRILLED SANDWICHES...YUMMMM! But if I were to win the case of PB I would ship it to my son he is currently in the Air Force and tells me peanut butter is better than cash! It's the best bargaining chip ever for any trades you may wish to make.

I love asian peanut sauce on everything including stir fry, tofu, fresh vegies, and chicken. I also use it as a salad dressing. As you know it's great on bananas, but did you ever have fruit salad with a sauce made with peanut butter, cream cheese and maple syrup? Yum!!!

I would do what I do every day - put a large dollop of it on my morning granola and enjoy it with soymilk. Only I would have a case on hand rather than buying it once a week for the next three months from the Pasadena Whole Foods.
