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.

Oh my goodness! Peanut butter is good for almost anything. It's a healthy snack on an apple or banana, or a bad day comfort food on a bit of chocolate. It's a preschool craft ingredient (remember Ants on a Log?) or fine on the end of a spoon (especially good for hangovers!). It's a taste of the exotic on a Thai pizza as well as a sweet memory of childhood. What would I do with a case of peanut butter? Not just one thing!

My son would eat a lot of Peanut Butter and Jelly "Sushi" (I flatten 2 pieces of bread with a rolling pin, do the PB&J thing, and then roll it like sushi. Voila, 1 flattened PB&J sandwich that my son LOVES) and we'd have a lot of PB cookies, pies, etc. I'd also be giving several jars away... no sense in not sharing it! That's a lot of PB!

We buy a new jar of peanut butter nearly every time we go to the grocery store! It goes in the morning oatmeal, African peanut stew, spicy peanut dipping sauce for vietnamese fresh rolls, peanut butter cookies, I could go on forever. It's not too bad on a spoon either :)

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!

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

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

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 :)

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!

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!
