I like Smuckers strawberry preserves along with crunchy or creamy Skippy. On Sunbeam white bread, or bakery rye (Jewish or Dark German), as well as on ROman Meal WHeat. Toasted or no, both ways are good.
Now, this is a thread I can sink my teeth into.......

Trivia question: What else was peanut butter used for during the Vietnam war?
Answer: The C-ration can of peanut butter was a good substitute for Sterno (for heating purposes, not to eat) Just open the little can which was just smaller than a shoe polish can, and saturate the peanut butter with the military issue insect repellant. Stir it together well and it would burn long enough to heat your entree.
Hint: Don't eat the residue! It is NOT peanut brittle.

Chemically laden mass market peanut butter as sold in supermarkets is junk. You've got to try the natural type, sold in specialty shops and some larger supermarkets, that's made with nothing but peanuts and a little salt. Abolutely no comparison.

You're right. No comparison. The Skippy and Jif are a ZILLION times better imho.
Besides, there are studies that show that organic and "natural" peanut butters have the highest levels of carcinogenic aflatoxins (mold that grows on the peanuts), while the lowest levels were found in the big name brands skippy, jif, etc.
On the other hand, the big brands tend to have hydrogenated oils in them , which are bad for you in other ways...oh well
