OK.... i did go back to Costco and buy the regular non organic 100% valencia peanut butter. i didnt need to do a blind taste test. after i stired it and chilled it in the fridge i tasted them both side by side. to my taste... the organic has a stronger more roasted peanut taste.
i LOVE valencia peanuts... they are sweeter and have more of the taste i am looking for in peanut butter.
anyway....i like the organic better. so i am going to give away the regular to a friend of mine that craves any peanut butter.
i always keep my peanut butter in the fridge.... i keep all nut butters in the fridge... and sometimes in the freezer. even when i use to eat Jif ... i always kept it in the fridge, I have never had any go bad on me but the natural butters are alot better off refridgerated.....
for me anyway.
i dont mind that when i get them they need to be stired..... thats just the way they are and its ok with me. i stir them once and then the fridge keeps them nice and silky smooth.... and ready for whatever i put it on.
i guess i answered my own question here. i should really have never bothered to post it because everybody likes something different
when it comes to nut butters. its a very personal thing.... peanut butter. lol
i happen to love the tase of valencia peanuts while others may find them not to their liking.
SO i am thrilled to find that costco now carries this peanut butter. even if i couldnt get the organic.... i'd still buy the regular because of the kind of peanuts they use. i was always buying valencia peanut butter from Trader Joes till that went away. i am a huge Costo fan and it was only by accident
that i discovered they have this peanut butter. i had given up hope of ever getting good valencia peanut butter ever again.
ok well.....thanks for posting your opinions.
now i gotta go... i think i feel an peanut butter slathered apple coming on. lol
