CB's Nuts Creamunchy Peanut Butter
The only peanut butter on this list that truly contains peanuts and only peanuts, CB's "creamunchy" peanut butter is unapologetically thick, like a beautiful peanut tar, and its absurd namesake is spot-on. It is, when it comes down to it, pure peanut, and that purity — a thing that would, removed of the context of the wider world of nut butters, seem boring — is refreshing. What's that thing people say — less is more? Works here, too.
The gist: Use it for whatever you want — its pure peanut flavor is the most versatile on this list, even if it's not the most show stopping.
Price: $7 for a 16 oz. jar.
