I thought it was gross. About the only use I could think of was spreading thinly on bread. VERY thinly. And since I rarely make LC bread, and don't eat regular, I suspect this is gonna get pitched! Plus it takes up fridge room. And it only vaguely tastes peanutty at all.

But you can have low carb natural peanut butter... why eat such a processed food?

Wouldn't natural peanut butter be low in sugar? I buy my peanut butter from a natural food store. Omit has nothing but peanuts in it.

Maybe on second thought I'll save my money.

I have found I can eat REAL natural peanut butter if it is diluted in FAT -- like 1:3 in fat bombs. Happily!!! I will stick with those now.

I love natural peanut butter, in moderation. Nothing but nuts and a touch of salt. But it's become sort of a fad, so some "natural" butters have all kinds of non-nutty things in them. After pitching a jar or few, I've learned to read labels.

I've pitched several jars of varous peanut butters too! I can eat about a tablespoon of the natural, just ground peanuts, at a time with no problem. Sometimes a bit more.... I'll stick with the real stuff, that WF spread was just plain nasty.

I'd have to agree with you, GrammaB. I haven't had the peanut butter, but I did have a few of their salad dressings years ago and couldn't believe they sold something that tasted like that.
