An entire case of peanut butter? After sharing most of it with our local food pantry (it's a wonderfully portable form of protein that doesn't require refrigeration), I'd make a pot of ground nut stew - spicy and filling, and good over brown rice as an evening meal.

Need a good laugh? Give your dog some peanut butter…laughing yet? Dogs and cats love peanut butter. If your cat is too busy eating peanut butter and has ignored that mouse, use peanut butter instead of cheese for bait on the mousetrap. Yes mice prefer peanut butter over cheese. Please keep the cat away from the trap….now that wouldn’t be funny. Rub peanut butter on the side of the jar to remove the price tag. Use all those peanut butter jars to hold nuts/bolts and whatever else. Be green and keep them out of the garbage. How did you get that gum in your hair? Get it out with peanut butter. Did you know peanut butter can be used for shaving cream and a facial mask? Creamy works the best! Now for the Best use of Peanut Butter…..Just Eat It! Blend it with chocolate, raspberries, yogurt, ice cream…oh I could go on forever. Peanut Butter is the ultimate healthy food that goes with anything, only your imagination is the limit. Go and Indulge now after reading this…….I am…Happy Eating

The best thing about peanut butter is how versatile it is. No matter what form you use (crunchy, creamy, salted...) it has the ability to adapt and change. When I make my special peanut sauce to pour over whole wheat paste, it's savory. When I use peanut butter for cookies, cake, or ice cream, it's sweet. My husband and I always have a jar of all-natural, organic peanut butter around. my favorite thing to make with peanut butter is a quesadilla. Two whole wheat tortialls are filled with peanut butter, chopped dates, sliced banana or apple, and then grilled until crispy. The best is when I make a "sour cream" dip for it out of plain yogurt with a little honey mixed in! If I had a whole case I would have a peanut butter themed dinner party with my friends and family!!

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.

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!
