These PBs are bona fide stars on their own.


Sunland Flavor Infused Peanut Butter

Editor’s Note: The original brand reviewed, Peanut Better, was acquired by Sunland Foods in 2008 and is now known as Sunland Infused Peanut Butter. The line is certified organic and kosher.


At the recent national trade show for the gourmet food industry, showcasing delectable food from all over the world, one of the most exciting new products was … peanut butter?

Well, creative food flavorists have elevated this taken-for-granted commodity to infinity and beyond, with a knock-your-socks off line of coarse-ground peanut butters that must be tasted to be believed. We flipped for their savory PBs: Hickory Smoked, Onion Parsley, Thai Ginger & Red Pepper, and Spicy Southwestern.

Savory Peanut Butter Flavors

If you can’t imagine what you’d do with a jar of onion parsley peanut butter, let us suggest: PB sandwiches, crackers, canapés, dips, and right out of the jar with a spoon. Anything you’d do with regular peanut butter, but so much better.

And you’ll find many new uses. Think Onion Parsley with mashed potatoes or steamed vegetables. Spicy Southwestern on roast beef sandwiches and rib eye steaks. Hickory Smoked with hot or cold turkey, ham, and roast chicken. And Thai Ginger works with every Asian dish calling for peanut sauce.

You will never look at a jar of peanut butter the same way again.

Sweet Peanut Butter Flavors

We never got around to reviewing the sweet PB flavors, but we sure do enjoy eating them. The line includes Banana Peanut Butter Spread, Caramel Peanut Butter Spread, Cinnamon Peanut Butter Spread, Cinnamon Currant Peanut Butter Spread,* Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Spread,* Raspberry Peanut Butter Spread, Sweet Molasses Peanut Butter Spread* and Vanilla Cranberry Peanut Butter Spread.* Asterisked flavors are organic, the rest are all natural.
