    What are the dark specks in our Peanut Butter?

    Are those things bugs that got crushed in the process or what.

    Slight colour variations in the nuts.
    They may even be the dark inner skin of the nut.
    Perhaps trapped beetles etc, caught in the automatic process.
    Perhaps where the peanuts have been roasted too much.

      I hope its just the skins,  I adore peanut butter in any recipe even by itself...I am just a peanut butter junkie I guess!

    hopefully not bugs...but if it is dark colored nuts (I never noticed it in mine) then they are lowering their standards of quality nuts.
