Krema & Crazy Richard's All #Natural Peanut Butter Review & Giveaway US 11/7

Krema was established in 1898, their commitment to quality, value and old fashion values is what helps keep their customers coming back. The Krema Peanut Butter Company is one of the oldest peanut butter companies in the United States today! The make their peanut butter the time honored way by only using top quality peanuts, a special dry roasting process and unique fine grinding for the perfect natural peanut butter.

Many of Krema's customers use their peanut butter as a staple of their diet.  There are no added salt, sugar or hydrogenated vegetable oils, making Krema peanut butter the perfect "health food". Their local hospital even recommends that all of their patients with heart related problems eat their products. 

We received four jars of peanut butter; one Krema Crunchy, Krema Smooth & Creamy, Crazy Richard's Smooth & Creamy and Crazy Richard's Crunchy all natural peanut butters. Being that these peanut butters are all natural, their only ingredient is PEANUTS! I love when I can read and understand the ingredient in a product myself or my family will be consuming. There are no added salt, sugar or hydrogenated vegetable oils. Just top quality peanuts, which go through a special dry roasting process and unique fine grinding for the perfect natural peanut butter.
Due to being an all natural peanut butter, the natural oils seperate from the peanut butter when it sits so you can either pour or drain some of the oils off the top or keep the oils in the jar as I did and just stir it each time. By keeping the oils in the jar the peanut butter at the bottom of the jar, when you get down to it will still be moist and smooth, if you drain the oils it may become dry the further down you go. The oils seperate occurs naturally because there are no hydrogenated oils to stabilize it. You can put the peanut butter in the fridge over night for it to get a firm consitency and then to reverse this you can leave it at room temperature. I prefer it at room temperature, with other non all natural peanut butters I usually microwave it a bit or spread it over a warm/hot food to get it to the more liquidy consistency. The peanut butter is also Gluten FREE!

You may be wondering why we received two different brands of all natural peanut butter and if they are the same. Well, yes, they are the same peanut butter just sold under two different labels. Krema is a Midwest brand and Crazy Richard's is an East Coast brand. Both use the same high quality peanuts and process. Our local Pick N' Save carries Krema.

Krema & Crazy Richard's peanut butter is NOT part of the Salmonella recall! Huge relief when you have children eating the peanut butter. 

I wasn't sure if Dan would eat or like the all natural peanut butter, but he loves the crunchy peanut butter. He said he couldn't really taste a difference. However he didn't try it plain, just with jelly. 

The crunchy peanut butter is very crunchy! YUMMY!


Jada, Cade and I love creamy peanut butter. I did not tell them, mainly Jada that the peanut butter was different from what we are used to eating so she wouldn't "not like it" just because she knew it was different. Neither of them seemed to notice a difference! SCORE!  


Oh! The CREAMY! I LOVE it!! It is the perfect consistency for me. 


Jada, Cade and I tried the creamy peanut butter on celery and apple slices, it was oh so good! However, a tad bit too runny for the celery as it sort of ran out the ends of the celery, but I can now say this peanut butter is Finger lickin' good! 

Just look at how the peanut butter runs down the apple! 

Some creamy peanut butter on celery.

And a bit of crunchy peanut butter!

This is the creamy peanut butter from the other jar, I stirred this jar a little more so it wasn't quite as oily.

Our celery and peanut butter snack! 

Next time your at the grocery store pick some Krema or Crazy Richard's all natural peanut butter and give it a try for yourself! You won't be disappointed.
