Buy Peanut Butter on eBay

Updated on October 22, 2011

Peanut Butter is For Sale

Quite possibly nature's second-most perfect food, after Pringles, peanut butter provides a dietary benefit and a taste sensation quite unlike any other edible product. This wonderful concoction can be conveniently ordered from my eBay store at any time of the day or night. eBay hardly ever runs out of stock: feel free to jump online and order up mass quantities of peanut butter and related products whenever the inclination strikes. It lasts for an extremely long time on the kitchen shelf or stocked in bulk down in the larder of your survival bunker.

We present a small sampling of the peanut butter varieties and combinations available on eBay. An eBay account is still free and we gladly accept PayPal forms of payment. Browse our selection and pick out the most mouth-watering products. Order up a cornucopia of peanut butter-based foodstuffs at your convenience.

Peanut Butter Dog Treats

Your dog will feel left out if you toss him a bland generic chew bone while the remainder of the family enjoys peanut butter products. Be sure to order a few boxes of appropriate doggy treats. No self-respecting canine will turn down peanut butter and bacon, whether it's in a bone-shaped configuration of simply spooned from the common jar and smeared on the side of the food bowl.

Peanut Butter in a Jar

Many years ago an enterprising food packaging engineer settled upon the idea of selling peanut butter in a jar. His contemporaries jeered him. His mother still loved him, but she secretly wondered if jars were truly appropriate for containing peanut butter. Society soon proved him correct: to this day we enjoy copious jars of gooey peanut butter throughout the eating season.

Ignore the fact that a modest percentage of peanut butter inevitably remains in the jar despite vociferous knife scraping and even a little finger swiping. You always obtain the vast majority of the product and what's left over can be washed out in the family sink before recycling the jar so it can be used again for more wonderful peanut butter.

Jars offer great flexibility. Screw the lid back on for a virtually watertight seal, allowing for long-term storage of the remaining product. You wouldn't be able to do that if peanut butter was shipped wrapped in aluminum foil or a paper bag. Only Tupperware products rival basic jar technology for peanut butter preservation.

Peanut Butter Bars

Adding peanut butter to a protein bar increases the amount of protein in the bar and actually makes it edible. Most so-called 'health foods' contain sufficient amounts of health but severely lack any quantity of taste. Peanut butter solves this conundrum without resorting to the inclusion of artificial sweeteners or Captain Crunch.

Toss a few peanut butter protein bars into your fanny pack before setting out on a 100 mile bike ride or a 100 yard dash. You never know when you'll feel peckish. The sudden onset of hunger can be easily addressed through the appropriate application of peanut butter infused energy bars.

Watch out for energy bars deficient in peanut butter. These products may indeed provide nutrition and moderately satisfying taste experiences, but they contain no peanut butter, which is pretty much the thesis of this treatise. I mean, it's OK to inadvertently purchase a health bar or two that lack peanuts, but don't let it become a habit.

Peanut Butter and Chocolate

When man somehow invents peanut butter and chocolate flavored Pringles, the end of the world will surely be nigh, given that no further advancement is possible. Until then, enjoy basic products combining peanut butter and chocolate in all their forms.

On the scientific scale of taste sensations, which for the sake of this article we will assume does exist, peanut butter and chocolate ranks far above pomegranates and just below peanut butter, chocolate, and bacon. Science is rarely wrong. Depend on your taste buds to react positively when you introduce this spendiferous combination to your palate. You may combine them into a candy bar, a nutrition bar, or a protein bar: it's all pretty much the same save the packaging and what shelf you find it on at Wal Mart.

Peanut Butter Coupons

Few of us posses sufficient knowledge of agronomy, industry, and marketing to produce peanut butter in a jar, bar, or potato chip. Once we admit that fact to ourselves we will be free to purchase our peanut butter products from third-parties. There's no shame in perusing the peanut butter aisles at your local super market or gas station min-mart or neighborhood garage sale. No one will deride you for paying retail, but a coupon takes some of the sting out of forking over hard-earned cash for something that grows wild in fields.

Look to my eBay store for incredibly useful coupons offered for sale by well-meaning peanut butter aficionados. Obviously these folks are completely stocked up, otherwise they would not be willing to part with their money-saving bits of paper.

      Funny, but not expecially useful.

      Nicomp: Is it chunky or creamy peanut that is in the bars and the dog treats? Do the coupons apply to both chunky and creamy? Will the chocolate flavored Pringles include chunky or creamy peanut butter

      Thank you for sharing yet another vital shopping tip with your typical integrity and precision.

      Voted up, etc.,
