Hello Whole Foods! First, my whole family loves Whole Foods. It's become a regular event for my two teenagers to go together to Whole Foods on a shopping trip. They come home with fruit cups, cupcakes, salmon candy, teas, and whatever treasure they find. If I did find myself with a case of peanut butter, I would donate it to Animal House http://www.animalhousehelp.org/. We have volunteered there on and off for years. It's a wonderful place with dedicated staff. They use peanut butter to fill the Kongs (http://www.kongcompany.com/worlds_best.html) the dogs get when they turn in for the evening. It helps keep them occupied and the neighbors appreciate the quiet. Animal House can always use the peanut butter and even dogs can appreciate *real* peanut butter from Whole Foods!

For breakfast, I love to have a bowl of non-fat Fage with peanut butter and honey. It's the perfect combination and healthy too!

No, I don't think all peanut butters are the same! That's like comparing apples and oranges. The 365 Everyday Value Organic Peanut Butter is dog gone good and rises way up there above the other brands! We eat it on about everything under the sun and my wife even makes homemade dog treats with it. We make it a point to buy organic and local when possible and we support our proud state of Texas! Yehawwwwww

I have 2 large dogs that chew on Kongs all day - for a treat, I fill the Kongs with peanut butter! They love it and the peanut butter disappears from my cupboard fast!! And I confess that the smell of peanut butter makes me fix myself a simple peanut butter and honey sandwich on whole wheat bread- nothing fancy here, just plain livin' with peanut butter!!

I eat peanut butter on (almost) any and everything. Right now I'm having peanut butter and banana on a whole wheat pita! I do, of course, go for apples, carrots, and bananas with peanut butter allll the time. PB makes life better. Always.

I eat it straight out of the jar! I also love or on waffles or pancakes with butter and raspberry jam on top. I also like to microwave it so it's really soft and spreadable.

They say bread is the staff of life. I'm pretty sure that it's the peanut butter on the bread (preferrably gluten free from your bakery) that holds body and soul together. Today I am making the trek from Springfield, Ohio, to the Lane Ave., Columbus store, to purchase your fresh honey peanut butter. One container each for myself, my husband, my mother, and my sister. Peanut butter is one of the few edible pleasures I have in life. In my twelve years living with Crohn's disease, I have found that the simpler the food, the easier it is for me to digest. I eat a lot of eggs, I eat a lot of rice, and eat a TON of peanut butter. Peanut butter travels with me on assignment (I'm a photojournalist) and peanut butter persuades the dog to sit still for ear cleanings and toe nail clippings. Peanut butter is represented in at least six varieties in my kitchen, topping ice cream sundaes, sticking sandwiches together, or sometimes enjoyed by itself on a spoon. Peanut butter truly holds my life together. With a case of peanut butter, I would live my life!

I would take a case of peanut butter to work with me. No one is allowed to bring peanut butter in the house, as my son is allergic, so I get my peanut butter fix at the office. First off, I would replace the communal jar of peanut butter in the break room that I raid on a regular basis and never replenish. Then I would make PB&J's for lunch every day, put PB in my oatmeal, snack on PB on apples and celery. Christmas Cheer is a year-round food distribution organization that is located near my office. I don't know how many jars of PB is in a case, but I would also buy a few loaves of bread and a case of jelly and share.

I love organic peanut butter in a chocolate protein shake. Also, it is a great snack to have a sliced Granny Smith apple with a side of peanut butter and honey. The kids love peanut butter and jelly waffle sandwiches for a quick breakfast. Another great snack for the kids is peanut butter on a rice cake, graham cracker or even just a spoon.

Wow. A whole case? Well, aside from the obvious peanut butter sandwiches, I'd mix it up with some ramen noddles and broth. Nom nom nom. I love doing that!

On a mashed banana, topped with wheat germ or chocolate chips.... On an apple, of course,.... On a sandwich with wasabi miracle whip.... Or on a spoon (but only because it immediately soothes my itchy allergy throat- I swear!.... And I realize that only one, possibly two of these are actually healthy ;-)

I eat peanut butter by the spoonful when my sugar level is off. I am not a full blown diabetic but sometimes it gets off and my diet keeps it regulated.

I try enjoy peanut butter nearly every day...my day is incomplete without it. I love it on top of my oatmeal, on whole wheat english muffins with a banana. I also eat it straight out of the jar, on a spoon. I smear peanut butter on cookies...and brownies. It makes nearly everything better. I LOVE PEANUT BUTTER!

I love peanut butter in all kinds of things, but I think my two most favorite are peanut butter cookies (I have a killer recipe) and peanut sauce for Sate. When I was a kid, I would eat it by the spoonful straight from the jar. Of course, I don't do that now... no, never.

My son didn't eat peanut butter exclusively but there was time as a toddler when he would carry around a bucket of peanut butter with a spoon inside. When ever the urge hit, he would plop down on the floor, open the bucket and get himself a spoonful. He called it, "peanut butter on a poon." When he got older he tried it on a variety of foods. The most unusual and probably his favorite was a bog old dollop on a chocolate fudgesicle. He's 31 now and more aware of how important it is to have variety in his diet. Peanut butter is still a favorite of his but now it's eaten in moderation.

My grandson has autism and is on a gf/cf diet, which limits his food choices greatly. He loves pb and banana sandwiches on gf bread. He eats between 6 and 8 pb sandwiches a day. I am also gf and enjoy a treat of pb with apples or a batch of homeade gf cookies. Our family would be thrilled to receive a case of organic peanut butter.

I really just love peanut butter on warm toast. I like it partially melted.

...and by the way, I posted it on Facebook, but forgot to here. If I had a case of peanut butter, I'd keep a jar (or two maybe) for myself and donate the rest to the Issaquah food bank. They're always in need of stuff like this.

Love peanut butter but, if I won a case, I would donate it to my church for The Peanut Butter Gang. It's a teen group that makes peanut butter sandwiches and distributes them to the hungry and poor. I love seeing young people get involved! Thank you!

I enjoy peanut butter straight up. Crunchy, straight from the jar, usually on the end of a table knife because I intend to slather it on celery or a piece of bread, but when I pull the knife out, the big glob of crunchy goodness is just sooooo tempting ... it hardly ever makes it to the intended accompaniment. Straight down the gullet!

I go through a LOT of tubs of peanut butter. I buy it so frequently because I use it to make puppy treats. I make them then I take them over to my local City Pound. It feels nice to give something, and I know my dog likes them too. They are way healthier then store bought treats and I know right when they are made and how they are made.

Oh YUM! peanut butter smoothies! Asian peanut sauce on tofu & rice, chocolate-peanut butter cups, the list goes on. I think the winner should have a daily blog with their peanut butter experiences!

If I won a case of peanut butter I would eat it of course! Since I am dairy and gluten/wheat free I especially love to make chocolate chip peanut butter cookies!

Peanut butter is my favorite food group! Seriously. With a case, I would make lots of peanut butter cookies; peanut butter & banana bread; peanut sauce for vermicelli noodles--and, of course, eat lots of it plain!

Spread it on a hot English muffin and watch it melt down into the nooks and crannies. Split a banana and spread peanut butter on one side, then replace the top and eat. A quick healthy snack. The ages old GORP that we used to take hiking and camping, line a baking sheet with wax paper, layer on chocolate, peanut butter, honey, granola, dried fruits. Stir carefully while heating in a slow oven. If too moist add more granola or Grapenuts. Let cool and cut into bars. Wrap in wax paper. May get very gooey on warm days. It makes a good balance for Asian sauces and stir fry.
