There's no decent crunchy peanut butter at most grocery stores here. I am shocked and appalled, I LOVE crunchy pb, esp. JIF brand! I finally tracked some natural crunchy PB down in a health food store. I almost swallowed my tongue when I saw how much they were charging (4.25 euros/$5.71 U.S. for a tiny 400 gram jar). But I bought it anyway and I have to say I like it. Less sugar, though they must add salt since it really tastes kinda salty.
Still, I just got back from a trip to the US and muled back 2 big jars of crunchy JIF and what do you think happened? That's right, the airline freakin' lost my luggage and hasn't found the damn thing yet. Assholes, I had precious peanut butter in there!!!
I should go back to just making my own by buying honey-roasted peanuts in bulk and just throwing them in the blender/food processor. *sigh* Wish I wasn't so lazy.
