I would suspect peanuts to rise HIGHER than peanut butter. Much of the cost of peanut butter is in processing - which is why there's only a projected 40% rise in that product. There's much less work in processing a bag of peanuts (or so I'd guess) so with more of the cost of the item coming from the ingredient, it's likely to rise more, sadly enough.I don't eat peanut butter, only an occasional small bag of peanuts, but of course those will be going up, too.
Maybe time to start roasting your own. Once you do, you can never go back - and once you have a roaster, you save by buying green beans and get a quality that can't be matched.I have also heard the price of coffee is set to soar, now to me that is a bigger problem.
I'm a well-prepared hoarder of food and other storage items. In the basement I have hundreds of pounds of wheat (useless to me now, lol, but the wife still bakes with it), about 100 lbs of honey (I eat a little honey now and then, but VERY limited amounts), Beans, canned everything, lots of stuff.Y'think?!!
