Yours must be different then mine!

Chuck yours over here ...lets have a look !!

Hmmmmm...you're right...but our Skippy (which is your USA stuff) does say it on ours !



can you make out the second line down !! ?

Is this what yours looks like ?




What's the percentage of peanuts as part of the ingredients on yours  ?




I can't find the percentage of peanuts.. where is yours?

My Jar is similar but the listings are different!

There's a conspiracy thoery about peanut butter, tomato sauce and other things such as this that say on the label "refridgerate after opening" that the only reason they say that is because if you keep it in your fridge, you will see it more often than in the cupboard, so you might eat more of it, then buy more of it. None of this stuff said refridgerate after opening years ago and the product hasn't changed.

Nor does any of the Peanut Butter jars that I have had or used
ever said to Refrigerate it.

Turnipsock's advice was good, sensible as he is. IMO

I have to see that it is and has ever only been that USA brand Skippy that says to refrigerate:

Here again are the details:

Karen it's a little tricky to ' digest ' the ingredients on yours are you able to take the piccy again....tip: turn the flash off and take photo under strong light using the 'close up ' feature....else...do what I did ...peel the label off and scan it !!








Though, I have to say...the idea that a conspiracy theory is dwelling inside my refrigerator is exciting !!
