If you gave us a case of PB we'd eat most of it but sometimes we'd also use it to remove sticky glue from labels. It's the best for that. Just put a dab on your index finger. Smear it over the residue of glue from a price sticker or a food jar label. Wait a few mins, wipe off with paper towel.

My husband and I have tried to find alternatives to sugary desserts, as we are both sticking to the anti-candida diet, and peanut butter has been our savior! No sugar added, but a spoonful of that stuff is fabulous post-meal and controls cravings for sweets. I already loved peanut butter, but I now find that I want "dessert" all the time! :) Yay for cases of peanut butter!

I have been eating Peanut Butter (Creamy, All Natural) and Jelly on Wheat Bread for lunch everyday for over 10 years. I make a sandwich during the week and bring it with me to work. Even when I travel I make a sandwich and bring it with me. Everyone at works knows and comments about how I have a Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich everyday. I have not missed a day and I cannot imagine how much money I have spent on Peanut Butter, Jelly and Wheat Bread. :) It is just so good and being a vegetarian it is a quick and easy way to get protein!

I love peanut butter anything! A whole case?? I'd be making peanut butter cookies, Thai peanut sauce, putting it in steel-cut oatmeal, and tons of sandwiches. And of course, I'd share what I made with friends, and donate a few jars of peanut butter to the Chicago Food Depository.

I absolutely adore peanut butter -- so this year, I gave it up for Lent! Since I'll be traveling over Easter, I plan to devote half of my suitcase to clothing, and half of my suitcase to peanut butter! If I had a whole case, I'd use it in everything. My current favorites (pre-Lent anyway!) were whole wheat tortilla-banana-PB roll ups, peanut butter and dry cereal "cookies," and peanut butter Thai chicken stir fry!

My husband said once, "if you are what you eat, then our family would be made out of peanut butter". I agree completely and proudly admit that we go through about two or three jars a week. We are vegetarians and strive to fit protein into out lives. "How do you guys get enough protein?", people ask me on occasion, and the first thing that always pops into my head is peanut butter. If we had a free case of the protein pay dirt, then I would continue to make all the goodies we usually do.....just in bigger quantities. I would also be inclined to share our abundance with our neighbors. PEANUT BUTTER THUMB PRINT COOKIES FOR EVERYONE ON THE BLOCK!! I would happily bring my son's entire class a tasty tray of smothered carrot sticks, celery logs with raisins, and apples slices. They would then tell their parents that they love peanut butter almost as much as our family does. But they could never love peanut butter more than we do. We could have friends and family over more often to share one our favorite dinners- stir fry veggies or seitan shish kabobs with peanut sauce. The main ingredient- mmmm mmmm peanut butter. Our family's obsession with the creamy wonder food is kind of a bad thing when you take into consideration that it's 200 calories a tablespoon. But I don't believe anyone ever died from eating pure peanut butter (except someone with an peanut allergy of course- I can't bear the thought of such a horrible curse) because it is very good for you in many ways. In addition to being packed with protein, PB also contains omega 3's which are good for your heart. Peanut butter is the #1 food in our house, and we would love a case to help "spread" the love.

My favorite way to enjoy peanut butter is when my four year old and I make ants on a log together. Precious!

I use peanut butter in so many ways. Of course the usual sandwiches come to mind as well as cooies and breads. One of our favorites cookie bars are peanut butter and jelly bars. I mix peanut butter in with my morning oats and snack on apple slices with peanut butter. Peanut butter is also a great thicking agent in so many savory dishes and of course there is Thai peanut butter noodles. Lastly I like to put a tablespoon in my evening hot chocolate. Yum!!

We ate peanut butter everyday, but in different ways. Daughter usually packs a 365 pb&j for school lunch. I eat two tabelspoons with raw veggies as my midmorning snack. Hubby loves peanut butter, banana and honey sandwiches. In fact, he'll sometimes choose that over ice cream!!

I would share it with others who don't know about the great nutritional value and protein packed delicious taste of Organic peanut butter. The greatest requital would be to nourish someone else as much as myself.

While I am allergic to almost every nut (e.g., pecans, cashews, walnuts, pistachios, pine nuts, etc.), I was luckily spared from having an allergy to the greatest nut of all - the peanut. And boy do I take advantage of that. In the morning, I love taking a teaspoon of peanut butter and adding it to my bowl of oatmeal with cinnamon, raison, ground flaxseed, agave and soy milk. For a mid-morning snack, I will most likely take a granola or protein bar and coat it with a shmear of peanut butter. For lunch, PB&Banana always hits the spot. A couple of slices of whole wheat bread toasted, a generous portion of peanut butter, a half a banana sliced, then 10 seconds in the microwave to melt the peanut butter and soften the banana, and boy do I get some weird looks from the other attorneys in the lunch room. For my afternoon snack, I blend myself a smoothie with 1 cup of soy milk, four or five strawberries (or often times the other half of the banana), a tablespoon of peanut butter, a scoop of vanilla or chocolate protein power, and a handful or two of ice. By dinnertime, I am pretty much PBd out for the day, and I try to get my healthy fats from other sources, such as avocado, salmon or orange roughy, although I have been known to sprinkle some peanuts onto a salad or into a side of brown rice. So, all in all, I have a two word answer to your question: "What Would You Do with a Case of Peanut Butter?" DEVOUR IT!

Peanut butter works well with just about any fresh fruit. My go-to sandwich combos are: smooth or crunchy peanut butter on multigrain bread with freshly sliced kiwis and strawberries smooth peanut butter on challah with an almost over-ripe sliced pear smooth or crunchy peanut butter in pumpernickel bread with alternating slices of granny smith and golden delicious apples mix smooth peanut butter with chopped raspberries and whole blueberries(kids love to make this delicious mess!)-spread on your favourite bread and enjoy!

I'm a peanut butter junkie and so are my dogs! I put some in their dog toys which keeps them occupied for the day while I'm at work.

I absolutely LOVE peanut butter!! I enjoy peanut butter on celery sticks, graham crackers and apple slices as well as on whole wheat bread with banana slices, grape jelly or marshmallow fluff. The 365 Everyday Value® Organic Peanut Butter is addictive! A spoonful of peanut butter a day keeps the doctor away :)

There is no end to what you can do with peanut butter. Years ago, I had the epiphany that anything can be mixed with ground beef to make burgers, so I grilled up a batch of delicious peanut butter burgers. I'll often put peanut butter on grilled cheese, and I've had it with eggs, bacon and jelly on breakfast sandwiches. I think its especially good in sauces for asian dishes. But, if you have quality peanut butter, jelly, bread and milk, there are few things that can match it for deliciousness. What would I do with a case of peanut butter? Find a way to incorporate it into each meal I cook for a month, then I could write a cookbook about it.

I love, love, LOVE peanut butter!! I could eat it all day, every day (like your brother) but I try to just enjoy it once. Otherwise I'd be spending all of my money on peanut butter! I love it on peanut butter and banana toast, fruit, whole wheat crackers, in desserts, by itself, eating oatmeal out of the almost empty PB jar....I could go on and on. Besides, who can argue with such an easy source of protein?? Peanut butter is the best!

The better question would have been, how don't we like peanut butter? We eat peanut butter on everything, bagels, english muffins, apples, graham crackers, celery, bread... I could go on and on. The ONLY peanut butter we eat is 365 organic creamy (oh, and the occasional treat of the grind your own in store:-)

I do love my peanut butter! My favourite snack is some smooth PB on a rice cake. After recently going gluten-free I'd use all this delicious peanut butter in the search of the "perfect" gluten-free peanut butter cookies! (P.S. My brother still lives on toast and peanut butter)

Peanut butter is a staple in most homes. I grew up eating it on sandwiches, celery to pies and cookies. Now that I am a mother of a two and four year old I seem to take a peanut butter snack where ever I go. From after preschool picnics at the park to camping and rode trips. It's a sure thing in my family, even with my husband, I can count on peanut butter as a breakfast, dinner or lunch that everyone will eat and be full. I have to say I think it is a food that elicts childhood memories when you eat it.....

I l o v e peanut butter!! I have loved it since I was a little girl. I used to have peanut butter eating contests during lunch with different classmates. hee hee! Now, I love the organic peanut butter on EVERYTHING. As a matter of fact, i baked a cake and added peanut butter as an additional topping. Everyone loved it :) If anyone were to ask what my favorite food is they would say..."Well, that's easy......peanut butter" I love it so much, that the love of peanut butter has rubbed off on all my family. I would share my peanut butter jars with all my family members. They would greatly appreciate that :)

PB is a flavorful addition to so many meals and taste-bud pleasing simply on a spoon. Here's how I would use a case of peanut butter: *Add a spoonful to my oatmeal for breakfast every morning *Spread on whole wheat bread with banana or blackberry jam or nutella, if sweet tooth *Add a spoonful to a vanilla milkshake *Make a ginger-peanut vinaigrette (for chicken marinade, salad dressing, pasta or couscous) *Snack on a spoonful with cup of almond milk *Oat & peanut butter whole wheat cookies.... and I'm sure I could think of more. Peanut butter lovers unite!

In a perfect world, there would be more generous peanut farmers who spread happiness... by spreading peanut butter!! While licking what's left of the cake batter off of a giant mixing spoon brings joy to 5 year-olds everywhere, grown ups get the same kick from a hearty scoop of peanut butter. If I won a whole case of peanut butter, I'd eat spoon fulls here, there, and everywhere! And that would make me smile. Smiley people make the world a better place. By donating your peanut butter to me, you are doing your part to save the world. :) :) :)
