Peanut Butter Prices are about to rise - so stock up!

Peanut-Butter Makers Face Crunch - WSJ.com

Price of peanut butter to soar after hot weather ruined harvest | Mail Online

Prices are going to be increasing soon! We go through a LOT of PB in our house so I'll be checking out and stocking up at a slightly higher price than we normally do.

Curious, what is your stock-up price for peanut butter? I live in south Jersey and I prefer to pay .29 - .50 for a jar. With some freebies throw in here and there. I'm so spoiled, I don't want to pay a dollar! How about you?

My dh is partial to Jif, so I burn rr's on it when it's on sale at Wags--usually $2 a jar. The same jar is $2.24 at WM and since I usually make money at Wags I don't feel bad spending it on pb. However, I haven't seen it on sale in like forever and we go through a jar a week. On 10/23 they're going to have Plantars PB for $1.50 a jar. Has anyone tried that brand? I'm thinking maybe I should order a case....

I wish I could get PB at that price!!! I shoot for $.75 - $1.00.

My DH likes the reduced fat Skippy best and luckily it goes on sale pretty often.

I saw the Planters and will probably buy some from Walgreens that week too.

The Planters at Walgreens in a couple weeks is the only one I know of. I haven't been looking at the ad scans very closely though lately.

We had fabulous deals on the Planter's peanut better in the summer (some free, some 50 cents). I still have 6 jars, but thanks for the warning, I will buy more.

I like the taste of the Planter's okay. I don't like Skippy...Jif is okay. I used to love Peter Pan, but I haven't tasted it since the recall......


Hopefully, we only need enough to last until next fall....and peanuts will get more and timely rain next year.

So glad I really stocked up last month. Lowes had the Planters PB for 1.50. With the .75/1 coupon doubled, made for free PB. As for the taste, we love it. Even better than Jif, which is what I normally bought. I probably got around 50 cans. DH goes thru almost a jar per week, taking PB and crackers to work. I make them myself rather than buy ready made ones. And will also use a lot doing baking for Christmas. Also, a son in college who loves PB.

I've tried really hard to get the Planters that was on sale a while ago at Walgreens- got a rain check and came back several times a week for weeks, but they were always out. I gave up, .

I get my peanut butter right now at Aldi for $1.49 (24oz I believe). I'm going this weekend to buy 18 jars, which should last us through next year. Hopefully by next fall the peanut prices won't be so high.

read Stock up on Peanut Butter

The Wall Street Journal reports that because of bad weather in the south, the wholesale price of peanuts has skyrocketed from $450 a ton to $1,150 a ton.

According to the article, "wholesale prices for big-selling Jif are going up 30% starting in November, while Peter Pan will raise prices as much as 24% in a couple weeks...Skippy [prices] are already 30% to 35% higher than a year ago. Kraft Foods Inc., which launched Planters peanut butter in June, is raising prices 40% on Oct. 31."

I stopped at a Kroger which doubles up to .99 cents to pick up a couple of jars of Smart Balance Omega for 2.39 OOP after .75 coupons, and noted that prices on the name brands are already edging upward. Some were on sale at what is ordinarily regular price.

We only use natural or semi-natural (Jif Natural) PB, without hydrogenated oil. I picked up a couple of 28oz jars for $5.80 each, and decided I am going to check Target and Walmart for a better price and later sell-by-date in the next day or two. My hope is to get at least a year's supply in my stockpile.

I heard from a friend of mine that Costco has stopped carrying Jif PB due to the fact that the wholesale price was too high for them. Costco is now selling Skippy PB.

Not sure if this is all stores or just regionally here in the Midwest.

It makes me sad that it is increasing so much. Guess I need to stockpile more of it.

I just stocked up yesterday at WM on the Peter Pan reduced fat and it was the same price it had been. The expiration dates were January 2013.

DH told me yesterday that he had heard about the increase in prices. Just 2 of us so we don't eat more than a jar a month. I checked my inventory list and told him we're good, still have 11 jars. He just shook his head. He still doen't understand my stockpiling but he does like having things on hand and loves the savings. Think I'll try to pick up a few more jars if the price is right, it will make a good donation item for the holiday food drives.

Let's see, 11 jars...If it goes up 40%, my jars of Jif will be $2.50 more each.
11x2.50=$27.50 Tell that DH that you saved almost $30 bucks by stockpiling!

My mom told me about this yesterday. My kids love PB but fortunately they also like almond butter. Right now I have two large containers of the Kirkland organic (Costco), hopefully that should last us awhile.
