I've been shopping at Costco for many years now, as their bulk offerings give one overall savings. In recent years, they've deviated from simply offering bulk versions of big-brand items, and instead switched to a more natural market, more closely resembling a bulk version of Whole Foods than a Sam's Club copycat. Their own brand, Kirkland, has started offering numerous unique healthy, natural, or organic items, one of which is their Organic Creamy Peanut Butter.
When I first spotted this as Costco, I certainly was surprised - normally they only carry Skippy. I eagerly put a two-pack into my cart and made my way home where I opened the jar and spent a good five minutes mixing up the separated peanut butter. I spooned out a couple of tablespoons to have with some whole-wheat crackers. I took a bite and was greeted by peanut butter bliss - a surprisingly smooth and creamy peanut butter with no added sweetness. The flavor is pure peanut, and the texture is probably the creamiest of all natural peanut butters that I've tried.
A 2 tablespoon serving of Kirkland Organic Creamy Peanut Butter has the same nutrition facts as most other peanut butter brands - 200 calories, almost 25% of the daily value for total fat,15% of the DV for saturated, 2 grams of fiber, 2 grams of sugars and 9 grams protein. As with any peanut butter, portion size is key, as it's very calorie-dense. The ingredients are marvelously short: peanuts and salt.
A 2-pack of 28 oz. jars cost $6.49, which is really cheap for organic natural peanut butter. My only real complaint about this is that they don't seem to make a chunky version - something I'd love to see in the future.
