Hmmm well I put peanut butter in my oatmeal every morning and also in my yogurt for an afternoon snack. I actually just recently started to eat peanut butter again. I like it so much that I stopped buying it because I was over-eating it! I keep my jar in the office now so I don't get tempted at home. I crave peanut butter like people crave chips or cookies. Thanks for the giveaway because clearly having an entire case of peanut butter is a good idea for me. haha

Listen guys, I AM peanut butter.It is something I consume every day, a few times a day. Six years ago I was terrified of the peanut's high fat content and dutifully avoided it. I am now majoring in nutrition and now know peantut butter, in it's complete natural state, is amazingly good for you. Good for your skin, your weight, your happiness! I eat it on a spoon, sometimes covered in honey, sometimes alongside raisins and apples, sometimes in smoothies and sometimes on whole wheat bread. Hooray for blended peanuts!!

I was born in Nicaragua and did not grow up with peanut butter...no peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, no PB cookies, no PB filled celery stalks. And I didn't know what I was missing. In fact, the first time I tried in was in college (maybe 20 at the time) and was not impressed at al...mainly because I thought it was "bad" - all fat and sugar. Then I started cooking for myself and moved to LA and was introduced to Thai food. A lot of Thai dishes have peanuts or peanut sauce and I started warming up to peanuts. Then one day out of nowhere I grabbed my boyfriend's peanut butter jar. It had been staring at me for months. Armed with that jar and the knowledge of the good nutritional fats nuts provided, I made my very first PB and J on toast and holy nuts! I was in heaven. Since then I love PB and even stir it into my oatmeal in the AM. It's an easy side dish for my fruit and a PB/J sammie next to homemade soup is easy dinner. PB even got me through midnight cravings when I was pregnant. Now my baby girl is growing up like a "true" american and had her first PB on toast as soon as she turned one and of course she loves PB too!

I would keep making this fantastic breakfast smoothie that tricks me into thinking I am drinking a chocolate & peanut butter shake! One frozen banana, one giant tablespoon yummy peanut butter, one squirt of honey, a dollop of greek yogurt, a tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa, a shake of cinnamon and some organic milk. Drop a stick blender into the cup and viola! A super tasty protein breakfast smoothie.

I'd love to share a case of peanut butter, but in my house, we go through 2 to 3 jars a week! Though the kids (inlcuding my husband) eat a gajillion PB&J sandwiches, my favorite is a peanut butter malt! And since almost nobody makes them anymore, I gotta make them myself... with as much peanut butter as I want! (another secret treat... Peanut Butter is also great on wavy potato chips! Try it some time.. you'll be pleasantly surprised!)

Peanut butter is my favorite food, and I love it on absolutely anything- from peanut butter and banana sandwiches to dark chocolate bars dipped in peanut butter, to peanut butter noodle sauce, and tofu sauteed in peanut butter. It is a wonder food and so simple that I don't go a day without eating peanut butter!

Both my husband and I ADORE peanut butter! He eats it literally 4-5 times a week; his favorite application is butter-and-peanut-butter toasted English muffins. I eat peanut butter nearly every day as well; sometimes I eat a banana with PB & J (no bread), sometimes I do the fabulous PB & banana sandwich (with bread, usually a wrap 'cause it's easy and portable), I also love PB & chocolate, PB & honey, PB in homemade energy bars, PB on celery topped with raisins and/or chocolate chips ("Ants on a Log"), PB eaten straight from the jar (yup, I'm not above this)... I can go on and on, but suffice to say, my sweetie and I would be delighted with a case of PB. :)

So many ways to enjoy peanut butter; peanut soup, peanut sauce, or on a toasted english muffin with bacon and sharp cheddar topped with an over easy egg.

When I was growing up my mother gave us peanut butter and grits (instead of butter). I gave it to my children, and now my grandchildren love it. Peanut butter and grits is the ultimate comfort food.

A case of peanut butter would be shared with friends! I would make pbp sandwiches with my jar. Lightly toasted whole grain pita with peanut butter and a sprinkling of mini chocolate chips inside. Fabulous!

Peanut Butter has always been a favorite in our home. This week I created a peanut butter, apple and celery pizza with basil and crushed red pepper. Topped with fresh mozzarella cheese this new dish quickly became my daughter's new favorite. She commented on teh second day of peanut butter pizza, "I could eat this breakfast, lunch, or dinner." If I won a case of peanut butter I would host a PEANUT BUTTER PIZZA FEST.

I'd serve peanut butter apple-celery pizza and peanut butter red sauce pepperoni pizza. For a fun and meaningful activity, I'd auction off the other jars of peanut butter for $10 or $20 a jar (or perhaps more!). The money would then be donated to our local food and homeless shelter. If guests wanted to keep their peanut butter they could or they could send it along with the money to help feed our local homeless friends. Fun for all, thanks to 365 Everyday Value® Organic Peanut Butter!

In our family, peanut butter is a food group. We love it so much we say, "It's a Peterson thing; you wouldn't understand!" In childhood, my father taught me to eat my PB&J with a cold glass of chocolate milk, into which we would dip our PB&J sandwich before taking a yummy bite! He also taught us to smear PB deliciousness on top of hot pancakes before topping with syrup. My children continue these traditions. We also make PB-chocolate syrup-banana smoothies, PB cookies, PB & banana sandwiches, PB on homemade wholewheat bread toast, PB on crackers, celery/apples/carrots/pretzels dipped in PB, PB balls (the ones with powdered sugar), PB no-bake cookies, PB fudge, and on and on. We ALWAYS substitute PB for tahini since we prefer the PB flavor over tahini, and PB is a frequent ingredient in our marinades. Our dogs love PB straight from the jar, administered as a giant glob via an index finger to the roof of their mouths (added benefit is entertainment watching them "eat" the PB!). And, of course, there is no beating a delicious, natural PB spoonful topped with raisins and sunflower seeds! If we win a case, we would definitely share with my father - the patriarch of our PB family.

My daughter loves her peanut butter, since she was 2 years old she would sneak in the cabinet and eat it out of the jar(only peanut butter, no bread, no cracker). Til this day at the age of 24 we have to still hide it or we would never be able to enjoy it. Just tonight she's sitting in the kitchen with the spoon in the peanut butter jar and said to me "if someone offered me a million dollars or peanut butter only one or the other, she said with out a doubt it would be organic peanut butter". She is very health concious and her try love and treat is organic peanut butter.

My goodness! A whole case of peanut butter! Many things come to mind but the first few are in the following order: 1. Dance around the living room with my little boys whooting "peeeeaaanut... peanut butter... AND jelly!" We like to celebrate in our house and a whole case would be cause for celebration. 2. Get out a spoon and have a little taste- my oldest son spends most of his time making his own PB&J "testing" the peanut butter. 3. Get out the mixing bowl and my sister in laws recipe for peanut butter kisses. Nothing is better than a celebration with a treat! 4. Once the cookies were out of the oven and we had danced our sillies away, we would pack up some care packages and walk them to our favorite friends in the neighborhood. We like to celebrate, We like sweet treats but more than anything we love to share.

Would you believe that I created a cartoon character who's whole being is devoted to eating as much Peanut butter as she can...she even has 30 different varieties that she keeps on hand - at one kind for every day of the month! She was inspired by the many PB & J's I enjoyed as a kid...and still do. My favorite PB treats? Ants on a Log and PB Pancakes --Yumm!

Oh boy do i love peanut butter. Its a great snack, breakfast, lunch and even dinner!! I love just taking my spoon and eating it plain out ofthe jar. It brings back such memories of when i am a kid. It so healthy and has all healthy fats that are needed in a well balanced diet. A case of peanut butter would be great for me becuase i go through 2 jars a week!!! I have a problem with mantaining my weight, but peanut butter helps me reach my goal weight. Its the perfect food!!

I would have to fight for a case of peanut butter in this pb-loving family of 6! It would certainly not last that long here- we love it on pb and banana sandwiches made with freshly milled wheat, spelt or kamut. We spread it on homemade tortillas with sliced apples or jelly, and we dip baby carrots and celery sticks in it. It's great in a morning smoothie with coconut milk, raw honey, berries, flaxseed, and a handful of sprouts or greens.

I like eating it best straight off my spoon. Sometimes I get a little fancy and spread some on a saltine, chased by a glass of cold milk. Mmmm...

OOOHHH, my husband is the peanut butter lover at least a jar a week. I love it, but he is the pb freak. He likes it on toasted rye bread with bread and butter pickles. When we were first married and found out about his love of this concoction, I started picking cucumbers at a local farm and making pickles for his sandwiches. A way to a mans heart is thru his stomach right??? Well, to date (6 years later) he has never, ever put one of my homemade pickles on his sandwich. I make them every year and run out from demand of family and friends who swear they are the best. So my plan is to if I win a case of peanut butter, it will be held hostage and can only be had if he eats just one rye bread, peanut butter and my homemade pickle sandwich. If not, I will use it to bake cookies for my son's entire preschool !! Thank you, Amy

I think peanut butter is a food staple. I think organic peanut butter tastes fresher, less salty, and it doesn't leave a slick spot on the roof of your mouth. If I won a case of organic peanut butter, I would share it with some people who need it.

Running a predominantly vegetarian house, peanut butter is a fantastic source of protien and essential fats for your hair and skin. Every week we pick up peanut butter from Whole Foods as you have a great selection of varieties... sugar free (great for my diabetic Dad's favorite cookies), salt free etc. and every type is organic!!! Smooth or crunchy, peanut butter is a wholesome snack on apples, spread on whole grain bread and it is fantastic in protein shakes and on top of oatmeal or chocolate chip cookies! If you are trying to cut back on sugar, peanut butter also is a fantastic icing substitute on homemade brownies, and adds an extra dimension of subtle flavor in banana bread when used instead of butter. What would I do with a case of peanut butter??? I guess when you are vegetarian or vegan the proper question would be: "what can't you do with peanut butter!". I would continue to add Whole Foods fantastic peanut butter to many snacks and meals, and, I would make peanut butter cookies for all my neighbours too!
