However, if you're not a tester, share whether you/your DC prefer your peanut butter Crunchy or Smooth and you'll be entered into a prize draw to win a £50 Whole Earth hamper!

Here's what Whole Earth has to say, "Mums buy Whole Earth peanut butter because they know it's naturally delicious. Made with 97% peanuts, no added sugar and loaded with energy, Mums know that choosing Whole Earth peanut butter is a great way to fuel their families throughout the day. It is also a perfect ingredient for baking crunchy peanut butter cookies – a delicious after school treat."

For those who tested the product, we’ve got a few questions we'd like you to answer, but feel free to add any other comments.

Q1. What did you/your DCs think of the consistency, texture and flavour of Whole Earth peanut butter? Was this similar/different to what you were expecting?

Non tester- it has to be crunchy. Preferably on a hot crumpet (drools)

lorka Tue 10-Sep-13 22:34:41

Non - tester -- Prefer it smoooooth!!smile

lagoonhaze Tue 10-Sep-13 22:45:10

Non tester- smooth here!

duchesse Tue 10-Sep-13 22:53:22

Wasn't selected to test, but crunchy all the way for me!

I personally prefer crunchy. However we always buy smooth as it goes further (can spread it thinner) & DH will use 1/4 jar per day if he gets the chance as he spreads it SO thickly. Also smooth is better for toddler DD.

LegoCaltrops Tue 10-Sep-13 23:01:53

In a non tester BTW.

I'm not a tester but I love smooth peanut butter in sandwiches or on toast. In cooking I tend to use crunchy.

ILoveAFullFridge Wed 11-Sep-13 06:07:20

Non-tester here. We love Whole Earth pb, find it far tastier than most other brands, but also, unfortunately, far more expensive. And as we can sometimes go through a jar or two a week, we tend to get Waitrose own-brand version of it - except on the rare occasions when it's on offer, in which case I stock up!

Definitely prefer crunchy for almost everything, though we have smooth from time to time.

CPB with any of Marmite, jam, honey, banana, thinly sliced apple, thinly sliced cheese (esp Wensledale or similar) is delicious.

CPB is fab as a base layer on bread or dough for a sweet pizza. Top with other stuff, eg fruit, soft sweets, chocolate, and grill for a few minutes.

This is my favourite peanut butter, we prefer crunchy!smile

JulesJules Wed 11-Sep-13 06:32:39

Non tester.

It has to be crunchy in this house!

Q1. What did you/your DCs think of the consistency, texture and flavour of Whole Earth peanut butter? Was this similar/different to what you were expecting?

I loved it. I like the big bits of peanut!

Q2. If you have tried other peanut butter brands before, how do you think Whole Earth Crunchy Original peanut butter compared overall?
I think it is my favourite - it's certainly the one that I look out for!

Q3. The RRP for 227g of Whole Earth Crunchy Original peanut butter is £1.99 and 454g is £3.19. Would you be happy to pay this? If so, why. If not, why not?
Yes - although I don't actually buy peanut butter because if I buy it I eat it with lots of toast and that's really not good for my diet!!!

Q4. How did you eat your peanut butter product? On its own? On toast? Did you use it in a recipe? If so, what did you cook?
Spoonfulls alone as a treat - then on toast for breakfast. I can't cook with it as husband HATES peanuts!

Q5. If it came up in conversation would you recommend Whole Earth peanut butter to friends or family? If so, why? If not, why not?
Yes - although I can't imagine it coming up in conversation!!

Non tester - smooth for my son as he is still young but I like crunchy

BellaVida Wed 11-Sep-13 09:51:39

Non-tester here, but have always had crunchy. I don't think I've ever tried smooth.

I like the texture, because it's what I expect from a nut! My favourite is spreading it on fresh celery- double crunch!!

Frogcatcher Wed 11-Sep-13 11:53:36

Non-tester: crunchy here! Think DP might prefer smooth but until he does the weekly shop it will be crunchy all the way!

WowOoo Wed 11-Sep-13 11:59:18

Non tester:

The children prefer smooth, so that's what I mostly buy.

I like a change occasionally and like the crunchy for adding to a biscuit recipe.

I really wish I could afford to buy Whole Earth. I'll keep an eye open for it to see if it's ever on offer.

PiddlingWeather Wed 11-Sep-13 12:03:02

Smooth peanut butter is our favourite, it is so versatile,as it can be used for baking and smoothies smile

I much prefer crunchy, but everyone else in the house prefers smooth. Apart from DS who hates peanut butter the weirdo

NomDeClavier Wed 11-Sep-13 12:23:30

Non tester: Crunchy all the way!

Babycarmen Wed 11-Sep-13 12:25:14

Non-tester here - Smooth all the way! Lovely on Rice cakes YUM smile

blush Good point - will check this for you!

mistlethrush Wed 11-Sep-13 12:31:04

Non-tester. Crunchy every time.

Liked on bread or toast with a scrape of marmite underneath and slices of tomato or cucumber on top.

Or on bread or toast with banana or honey on top.

Quenelle Wed 11-Sep-13 12:37:19

Non-tester. Always crunchy here.

Is it ok that Dad bought ours, not Mum? [churlish]

Smooth for me, so much better on warm toast!

Hi everyone, apologies if you've had any problems uploading pictures onto the thread. This has now been fixed. You can post pictures by using the Browse button under the Add Message box. You can only post one pic per message - and it will always appear above the text of your message, whichever order you browse/type in. If your pic doesn't load, try making it smaller (50KB max). We're afraid that you can't post up pictures if you're using the MN Talk App. And if you're not running IOS6 on your iPad or iPhone, you won't be able to browse for images on your Apple device.
Thanks
