What Would You Do with a Case of Peanut Butter?

cookie_pbcc Congrats to Charlie G, our randomly selected winner for the case of peanut butter giveaway! Here's a confession: My brother ate nothing but peanut butter (on bread) for an entire year. He was a little kid and my mom obviously wasn't taking control of his diet! He wanted peanut butter and she let him have it. Of course there are all kinds of things wrong with that and, luckily, he's outgrown the obsession. He still loves peanut butter and (in moderation) there's everything right about that! So, what would you do with a case of peanut butter? Read on for a chance to win one! It doesn't matter how you like it-smooth, crunchy, unsweetened or no salt added-we've got you covered with our 365 Everyday Value® Organic Peanut Butter at $3.49 for 18oz. And guess what? Our March/April issue of The Whole Deal has a $1.00 off coupon. Print the online coupon or pick up the value guide with coupons in our stores. Now that's a tasty deal. Do you think that peanut butter is kind of all the same? We don't. In our experience, the peanuts that go into that jar make a big, flavorful difference, and organic makes even more of a difference. That's why we require the best-tasting organic peanuts for the peanut butter that wears our name. The organic Spanish peanuts used in our 365 Everyday Value Organic Peanut Butter are grown by several family farmers in West Texas, like the Bingham Family. Organic-PeanutCliff Bingham is a 4th generation farmer. His wife, five sons, six daughters, son-in-law and granddaughter - along with the grandparents - are involved in the family farming business. Bingham Family Vineyards and Farm not only grows peanuts, they grow wine grapes for Texas wineries and organic row crops like cotton, wheat, rye, black-eyed peas, blue corn, sesame and garbanzo beans. When they aren't farming, the Bingham family is big into playing music - many of the kids play multiple instruments and perform with the Lubbock Youth Symphony Orchestra. The family enjoys playing a variety of music including classical, country, gospel, fiddle and wedding songs! With all those active kids, I bet that family eats a lot of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. But aside from PB&J, there are many delicious, grown-up and fun, not-so-grown-up ways to eat peanut butter. Here are a few of our favorites: lettucewrapschilinoodlesApple Sandwiches with Granola and Peanut Butter Lettuce Wraps with Chile Peanut Noodles Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Cookies Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies Curry Coconut Peanut Sauce Peanutty Udon Noodle and Tofu Salad PB & J Pancakes So, how do you enjoy peanut butter? Let us know in the comments by March 12th (edit: extended to March 16th since you all LOVE peanut butter so much!) and you’ll be entered to win a case of 365 Everyday Value® Organic Peanut Butter! And, by the way, my brother is NOT eligible to win.

Kathy G says …

My guilty pleasure is peanut butter and jelly on hot whole wheat bread. The peanut butter gets all runny from the heat and mixes together with the jelly to make a drippy, oozy mess. Yum!

Dana says …

I love putting peanut butter on top of oatmeal. It melts and is so delicious!

Robert Loy says …

I love peanut butter in a smoothie with blueberries -- kind of like a delicious PB and jelly sandwich you can eat with a straw.

Joe @ Eden Kitchen says …

I make quinoa oatmeal by cooking red quinoa with oatmilk. One of my favourite toppings is peanut butter + fresh blueberries + agave. A case would keep me going for a while! I would also make the occasional batch of peanut butter brownies :)

Sharon says …

A case of peanut butter would help to fuel my training for my first marathon race this year. I will graduate with my degree in May and I will then have time to celebrate by completing my first full marathon! I would also hone my peanut butter recipes, some of which are already well on their way. A whole case of organic peanut butter?! I think my friends would find ways to come over more often! Lately I have been using peanut butter in my homemade granola recipe, giving it extra protein. Yum!

Karly says …

I love PB! PB and apply jelly is my favorite PB&J sandwich combo. I enjoy it in oatmeal for breakfast or spread on a banana for a pre-workout snack. I also love your gluten-free PB cookies recipe.

Karly says …

OH--and of course I would share the PB!

Bobby Metzinger says …

I love crunchy peanut butter. Since I've moved to Texas from Missouri, I even put it on a tortilla and roll it for a tortilla and PB sandtilla.

Gina says …

I would make my favorite peanut butter cookies, and homemade energy bars for my long runs this spring.

Kristin @ Iowa Girl Eats says …

Amazing giveaway! I like my peanut butter drizzled over a big bowl of hot oatmeal - the best!!

Deb Morris says …

We would try it in our Adult Peanut Butter Cups and PB Truffles!

Libby says …

Love it in No Bake Cookies!

Shaffer says …

eat it! PB and cheddar sandwiches are the greatest. Especially with some whole grain bread! Of course apples, pb and marshmallow fluff are pretty amazing too. then again i'd have no problem just eating it straight.

Michael says …

I'd donate the case of peanut butter. I'm deathly allergic to it, but there is a food bank in Trenton, New Jersey that I am sure could use it.

Gary Verville says …

The question is "What wouldn't I do with a case of peanut butter!"

Lorie Hannah says …

I would buy a case of jelly & enough bread and take it to a homeless shelter.

Jennifer says …

I enjoy peanut butter in oh so many ways. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, peanut butter and honey sandwiches, and peanut butter on fruit are some of my most favorite ways.

reva skie says …

I like to toast a sandwich round and spread a lil peanut butter on it. It's melty goodness. I also like to dredge a square of super dark chocolate in peanut butter to balance the bitter.

alphanitrate says …

I think I would keep a couple of jars that I needed, then pass them along to my friends, or a local food bank where it could be used.

Kara Sloneckder says …

We love peanut butter pie, pb&j, and of course buckeyes!!

Sarah Crock says …

Peanut butter is my absolute FAVORITE THING IN THE WORLD. I eat it with everything- rice cakes, bananas, apples, carrots, celery, on bread, in my oatmeal and the list goes on! I have to say I love creamy the best and I LOVE the fresh-ground honey-roasted peanut butter at Whole Foods! Mmmmm!

Robin H says …

I would make tons of peanut butter cookies for my husband and son(My son is in the Navy, so he would love to get those in a care package!). Honestly, I enjoy peanut butter in so many ways, but the best if just straight from the jar!

Lauren (athleat) says …

My favorite way to eat peanut butter is with a banana on toast or in a wrap.

Kris McCabe says …

Peanut butter was one of the "Big 3" foods that my son's pediatrician recommended to him for gaining weight. He eats it on PB&J's of course, but also with apples, bananas, and crackers. Whole Foods brand is his favorite-just the right consistency.

Richard Padgett says …

I love it just the way it was meant to be, on whole wheat bread with strawberry jam. Oh yeah, and big glass of cold milk. Mmmmm, is it lunch time yet?

Jennie Moore says …

We eat PB everyday in our house. We always buy the big jar of 365 and I also ground my own honey pb at the store once a week. Glenn loves making pb sandwiches with fresh cut fruit, yum! And I love pb on toast w/a little honey drizzled over it. I also love to just take a spoon and enjoy pb in all it's glory! =)

Lindsay Dick says …

If I had a case of peanut butter I would make tons of PB&J sandwiches to hand out in downtown Cedar Rapids, where I live. Everyone likes PB&J...eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert. Can't think of a better way to put a smile on someone's face than a free PB&J!

Beth M says …

I love peanut butter anything. As a kid, peanut butter sandwiches were my thing. I went through high school only eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches every day. Other childhood favorites were peanut butter and pickle sandwiches and peanut butter and sugar sandwiches. Old habits die hard ... dinner last night for me was a peanut butter and sugar sandwich.;)

Brian Flatley says …

I would make a ton of peanut butter fudge.

Sharon says …

If I won a case of peanut butter I would bring it to Haiti with me to help provide food for the volunteers at the Bon Samaritan orphanage and hospital who work so hard to help the Haitian community and need all the support they can get. - Sharon

Jessica Vogel says …

Oh this list is endless...there will always be the PBJ, peanut butter and banana anything, peanut butter cookies, and almost every asian inspired recipe I make I include peanut butter. mmm. I'm hungry now.

Michael Hughes says …

With a case of peanut butter I'd be set for a while, though probably not an entire year. I'm a working mid twenty something, and for the past 3 years or so, I have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich everyday for lunch. I love peanut butter. It's healthy, saves me money on more expensive lunch options, and is flexible. I of course get tired of the standard PB&J. I try and mix things up with a guilty pleasure of mine called Fluff. I'll also grill a peanut butter & nutella sandwich once in a while. The two things that remain consistent are peanut butter and a hearty wheat bread. I probably go through a jar every 9-10 days, I love it!

Jessica says …

How don't I love peanut butter? Straight out of the jar is my guilty pleasure!!

elaine mcf says …

Aside from the 'typical' PB&J for the kids, peanut sauces for Asian dishes, PB cookies, and mixing it into pancake batter, I also like to drizzle it all over apple crisp. I use apples, raisins, GF flour, brown sugar, whatever-nuts-we-have-on-hand, butter, and oats, bake it up, and top it with creamy PEANUT BUTTER just before serving. Delicious.

Toni says …

I love to melt some peanutbutter in the microwave and pour it on some chocolate ice cream. If I won this case of PB I would wrap it up and give it to my 13 year old son for Christmas, he LOVES peanutbutter and would eat it on just about anything if I let him

Christine says …

I bike race, so peanut butter becomes a staple on race weekends. It goes on bagels, bread, bananas (yum), and carrots. My favorite, however, is rolling oats and chocolate chips into peanut butter and making delicious little balls. Delicious!

SherryL says …

Our family would utilize a case of peanut butter by donating it to our local food pantry in Columbus, OH. We'll use the coupon to buy some for us:)

Nicole says …

I love peanut butter! With a whole case I'd probably eat a lot more sandwiches, but I also love to make my own homemade peanut sauce for stir-frying veggies and tofu, so that is how I'd use most of it. And let's not forget about COOKIES!

Mike Howes says …

I would make dozens of my favorite 'double decker' peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. I have to put an extra piece of bread in between the peanut butter and the jelly for structural integrity purposes due to the excessive amount of peanut butter I use. Delicious!

MIchele says …

Everyone in our house LOVES peanut butter....including the dogs, who come running the second they hear the jar being opened! I would need to split the case 5 ways....three humans, two dogs!

Belinda says …

I enjoy waking up to a homemade peanut butter smoothie!!! my fav!!! We would have to make some homemade (delicious) peanut butter cookies and of course yummy peanut butter sandwiches. :)

Daniel says …

I love peanut butter! I would say that it is my favorite food. I make peanut butter sandwiches with sliced bananas on wheat bread, and eat them almost everyday! They are especially good with a glass of milk. :)

Erin says …

Peanut butter is best when dolloped over a bowl of cereal with sliced strawberries and bananas!

kathy says …

I would donate it to a needy school lunch program in the city of Detroit

Brett Baker says …

Peanut Butter--the savior-food of college students! I remember spooning myself a helping of peanut butter in between classes; it was a perfect way to feel full and get protein. Now that I'm a "grown up" my husband and I have a morning ritual of reading a devotion together, drinking coffee and, you guessed it, peanut butter toast. I eat mine on wheat bread--his on an english muffin with honey. Peanut butter is literally a daily part of our lives. Oh, how these newlyweds would LOVE a case of the heavenly goodness.

Christy says …

I think your brother is like my 5 year old daughter. She could eat peanut butter every single day, lunch and supper, and be happy! With an entire case, we'd of course let her have her fill of PB sammies. :-) We'd give a few to friends/family, and honestly, I think I'd have to try some of the recipes in this blog. Those lettuce wraps with chile peanut noodles look wonderful!

Brenda says …

Hmm, Peanut butter sauce over noodles, flourless peanut butter cookies, peanut butter and raisins on cinnamon raisin toast, Peanut butter and fluff sandwiches, peanut butter on homemade buttermilk pancakes - is where I would start and then I would search for more recipes to use the peanut butter - oh pick me please!!!! My daughter and I do love the peanut butter!!!

B Jacques says …

As generic as it sounds, our favorite thing to do is spread peanut butter on fruit or crackers. My son is in the midst of his "peanut butter for a year" phase, but we're trying to avoid limiting it to sandwiches. A case of peanut butter would be donated our the food pantry where our family volunteers. Peanut butter can be difficult to come by sometimes and our clients really enjoy this as a source of protein.

Veronica says …

I will ship the box to a third world country. PB has a lot of protein and oh it could feed so many!!! :) Beat that.

Amber Smith says …

The lunch that fills me up the most, that nutritiously includes protein and carbs and fat, is the old-fashioned PBJ. Well, make that new-fashioned. Growing up, I was fed white bread. Now I know the value of whole grains--and so does my body. Using "Health Nut" bread, I spread on peanut butter and a little bit of fruit preserves for flavor. That keeps me going all the way to dinner, eliminating the mid-afternoon munchies that can be dangerous for someone watching their weight!!
