MaraNatha Organic No Stir Creamy Peanut Butter Review

MaraNatha Organic No Stir Creamy Peanut ButterThe supermarket is my haven, a place where my spirits are lifted and my imagination goes crazy. I absolutely love finding and trying new products that hit the shelves. When I saw MaraNatha Organic No Stir Creamy Peanut Butter on sale for $2.69, I knew it was time for a review. After placing the prized jar into my cart, I noticed a $1.00 off coupon hanging on a string that was tied around the lid. What a deal!

First and foremost is the ingredient list (USDA Organic): Dry Roasted Peanuts, Palm Oil, Unrefined Cane Sugar and Salt.

NUTRITION FACTS

Price: $1.69 (on sale)

My goodness, do those dry roasted peanuts make a difference. The opened jar literally smells like a handful of roasted peanuts straight from the field. Furthermore, the texture is utterly smooth and creamy; which increases the ease of spreading and makes for a delight when the sandwich (or spoon) comes into contact with mouthwatering taste buds.

The nutrition profile is not much different from your average peanut butter, with 2 tablespoons providing 190 calories, 24% & 14% of the daily value for total and saturated fats respectively, only 3 grams of sugar and 7 grams of protein.

Some people may not like the addition of sugar that is found within MaraNatha Organic No Stir Creamy Peanut Butter (which is not much), but I thoroughly enjoyed this and if I can ever find it at a reasonable price again, I will buy it. You can see on the Maranatha website that a 16 ounce jar costs $5.49!
