Peanut Butter Prices Rising – Time to Stock Up
Well, it looks like the price of peanut butter will be rising within the next couple of weeks. According to the Wall Street Journal, a “hot, dry summer has devastated this year’s peanut crop, sending prices for the legume skyrocketing and forcing peanut-butter brands including J.M. Smucker Co.’s Jif, Unilever NV’s Skippy and ConAgra Foods Inc.’s Peter Pan into startling price increases.”
So, what’s a couponer to do? Stock up while the prices are still low. So head over to your stockpile and check to see if you are running low. I already picked up a couple of jars this morning at Pathmark for only $1.02 each.
Here are some options for you from some of the current sales:
Another option is a decent deal on Amazon:
6 Jars of Skippy Peanut Butter for $11.75 when you choose Subscribe & Save.
If you have a great deal on Peanut Butter, please let us know.
Thanks to Kmegg for the heads up on this price increase!
