great food shelter item
I know most things on this site are all about saving the dealers money, but i have read time and again that one of the best things that you can donate to your local food shelter is peanut butter- high protein items usually require refrigeration. this could keep 6 families "going strong".

You eat it for the healthy fats. The sugar is the only bad part about peanut butter. Sugar makes you hungry, fat makes you full.|

What Does "Use Subscribe" Mean?
Sorry, I'm a newb, and I have no idea what "use subscribe" to get this deal means.
When I log into Amazon and click the buying options button, I see nothing that says "subscribe" for the discount? My cart says I'm paying 19.95 plus shipping!
Can someone please help me? I certainly would appreciate it very much.

I bought this last week at the same price.....Had i known it was Front Page worthy.....Ill go hang my head in shame for not sharing with fellow SD'ers.
P.S.- I hate Peanut Butter (I'm allergic). Thats why i didnt even consider sharing, I dont know the norm for PB prices, just got it for the kids.

|cydetu||Not sure if this has already been posted, but in the Chicagoland area, Skippy Peanut Butter is on sale @ Jewel Osco with a coupon.. 2 for $2. Hope this helps someone.|

Agree... Wifey likes PB quite a bit, and does not have much of a brand preference. I prefer Skippy, but she's OK with Peter Pan. Last Saturday Meijer had a 1-day sale on Peter Pan, $.99 per 16.3 oz jar, limit 6. I also had two $.50 off Qs that Meijer doubled. We got 6 jars for $3.94.
Thanks to OP, thumbs up + 4 reps

Food is not taxable in 31 out of 50 states. Inversely, food IS taxable in 19 states. You can find this info, and what states charge tax on food easily via google.

From the same wikipedia article (palm olein == palm oil):
"Studies have indicated that consumption of palm olein (which is more unsaturated) reduces blood cholesterol when compared to sources of saturated fats like coconut oil, dairy and animal fats"
Also note that palm oil and palm kernel oil are not the same thing.
It's hardly anything worth worrying about, even if you do eat a lot of peanut butter like I do. Most of the fats in the peanut butter are from the peanuts themselves, so the overall lipid profile is hardly affected. Not only that, fats are often made out to be bad, whereas in many cases they're beneficial for your health. Everything in moderation.

I usually get Smart Balance chunky peanut butter because it's natural, contains no added sugar or hydrogenated oils, has plenty of good fats, and is calorie dense (only have to eat a small amount to become full). Unfortunately, it's like $3.50 for a rather small jar.
I'm in for the 16oz Natural Creamy, I see that it's 90% but the nutrition information looks okay. Repped!
Roasted Peanuts, Sugar, Palm Oil, Salt
"The United States' Center for Science in the Public Interest said palm oil, which is high in saturated and low in polyunsaturated fat, promotes heart disease."
hmm, maybe this is not so healthy as it seems...any thoughts?

OK I'll answer my own question.. in case anybody else was wondering..
Typically commercial peanut butter has a shelf life of one year. The more exposure it has to oxygen, the quicker it will go bad.
When it goes rancid it's still safe to eat, but it will taste like poo.
