WANTED: Reward on head


Have you seen this peanut butter?

When Adam & I first met, he ate this peanut butter non-stop.  Even once we were married and I was cooking, he ate a jar a week, easy.  Then, suddenly the Salmonella scare of  2006 occurred and we cannot find our beloved Peter Pan Honey Roast Crunchy peanut butter anywhere!

We frantically searched all over Waco and in my home town.  Once we moved to Erie, we ransacked the aisles looking for our crunchy friend to no avail.   We had given up all hope.   Then, two weeks ago, our lives changed.  As we perused the aisles of Winn Dixie in Navarre, Florida, Adam stopped dead in his tracks and let out a gasp.  

There it was.  Our precious.  Sitting there perched so innocently.  We took as many jars of crunchy (creamy, puh-lease...) as they had on the shelf (only about six, sadly.)  We ran for the check-out lane, hoping & praying that no one would stop us.  We succeeded and have been filling our stomachs with it's honey-roasted goodness ever since.  

But soon, we'll run out.  So, my question is:  Have you seen this peanut butter?  If so, could you let me know?  Muchas Gracias, bloggy friends.  You may have just saved my husband's life....and our marriage...and a rain forest....and a unicorn.

ask at Wegman's! They do take costumer requests seriously.

Ironically, Peter Pan Honey roasted peanut butter is made from ground up rainforest and unicorn horn. :-(

Good suggestion from annoy. Often stores will order something for you if they have the distribution sight. OK-we have been home 3 weeks & you have eaten 6 jars of PEANUT BUTTER?????????

2) I went to ConAgra's site, picked honey roasted peanut butter, and asked for stores in a 30 mile radius with it on the shelf.
Here's the URL to the page I got:

I figured you could find anything having to do with nuts in Edinboro!

OK, the shopping trip to Elm St. resulted in no crunchy, but they did have Honey Roasted Creamy. DISCLAIMER: 1) they might be out 2) It might have been there and I might have not seen it. I didn't ask. I ain't no Mystery Shopper, Yo.
