Sugar instead or Nuts? No Thanks!

Jiff Whips and Peter Pan Whipped knock the calories down by adding air to the peanut butter, but they replace the fat with corn syrup solids and that's no bargain! Check the labels even on reduced fat varieties like Skippy, Jiff, and Peter Pan.

Eat Full Fat Peanut Butter

Natural peanut butter does not mean without added sugars and hydrogenated oils.....go full fat as sugars and starchy fillers in reduced fat peanut butter are unhealthy and the difference in calories is negligible. Pick one that's packed with protein and has heart healthy monounsaturated fat.
