Jif Individual Peanut Butter Cups

Recommended Posts

I am going on a trip next week and I bought some individual Jif Natural Peanut Butter Cups.  Has anyone had reactions to those?  I should have asked before I bought, but I was victim to impulse buying.

Funny--I got some cut up celery and they had an individual Jif Peanut Butter cup with it so I was searching to see if they were gluten-free--about 2 hours ago.  Regular Jif is gluten-free, but their website doesn't say anything about the to-go cups.  The cup I got was not labeled so I don't really know.  I got the regular creamy, not the natural though.

 

I bought some Skippy to-go ones last week and they are gluten-free.

What ingredient makes you two feel they might not be gluten-free like most all other peanut butter?  I think they are just the same pb that they put in the big jars.

I stress over cross contamination. There are no gluten ingredients that I can see but if someone has had reactions I'll give it to coworkers.

 

 

I guess I don't see where the cc for PB would come from?  Its not like you can make anything but PB on a PB machine.

^Yes.

 

The only possible cross contamination from a PB factory would be from tree nuts, if they made almond butter or cashew butter in the same facility, not from gluten.

 

 

Yes, except - Jif and Skippy are such big PB companies - I doubt they ever make anything but PB on the lines.  The cleaning and other issues with changing out the nuts would be costly.

Have you tried Justin's peanut butter cups? They are certified gluten free and really, really yummy!

 

I know it doesn't mean a ton, but I am super sensitive and I don't react to them :-)

Ok, I found this. I understand your concern with the travel packs.  I've found a few products that are gluten free in their normal line but some of their variations are not--like Reeses Peanut Butter cups...the regular ones are gluten-free but their holiday shaped ones, like the eggs over Easter, are not!  Being that I am still new at this, I am still in the "check everything" mode because I don't know off hand everything that is gluten-free....the "old timers" have more experience and maybe could be a bit more understanding with us newbies.... :o

Thank you IrishHeart!  That is exactly what I needed to hear. 

 

Thank you too SMRI, I'm a newbie to Celiac and seem to get caught with cross contamination more than anything.  So everything gets checked and I was counting on people with more experience than I.

I wish I liked peanut butter. It would be so nice because it's nutritious and convenient and doesn't need refrigeration. But alas, I have never liked it, even when I was a kid. My PBJ sandwiches were alway "just jelly".

 

I DO like Reese's PB cups. Can anyone think of something besides chocolate that might taste good with PB? As I said, jelly is out. (The combination always tasted like dirty socks to me.) I know some folks like it with honey but I have a true allergy to honey.

Hubs puts pb on his waffles  :o .  I've heard a few people say they like it with bananas.   :D

 

I prefer it straight out of the jar  :lol:

Looks like they have about the same amount of grams of sugar and they just replaced the hydrogenated oil with palm oil. My favorite peanut butter for home is Krema which is made of only peanuts, but I wanted to find something for my car kit.

I tried them and I really like them! They are much cheaper than the little packets of peanut butter and much easier to work with because you can just dip your apple or celery directly in and avoid the mess of squeezing a packet. Very nice and convenient!

okay, let's get back to you,  diana w...since this is your thread.

 

Please do not stress over CC. (stress does nothing but cause inflammation and wrinkles )  ^_^

I'm  an old  timer  & I give  you  credit  for  checking  ingredients..... this  is the  way  you learn... so  kudos  to you. Many  newbies  don't  want to take the  time  pay  their  dues  &  they get  ill....it  is  a  hassle  to  be  a  label  reader  but  it  will pay off  with good  health....I'm not  sure  who  you  were  addressing  when  you  said  old timers  could be  a  bit  more  considerate  ,   we  are only  trying  to get  a point  across... sometimes   new  timers  are in  denial  & don't want  to truly listen &  soak in  the  reality of  celiac....

You  do  what  is necessary  to make  you feel  comfortable  & safe  while  learning  your  new  lifestyle....and  please  don't  stop asking  questions....

peanut  butter & pickles!!!! My BIL  favorite.....peanut  butter,  marshmallow  cream on gluten-free  graham crackers....add  a melted  hersey kiss.....

 

We  love  the  sunbutter  &  the almond  butter both  in little  packets or  jars.....both  better for  you  than  peanut  butter...
