Skippy peanut butter now made in China

Postby sparks » Sun Aug 17, 2014 9:54 am

I've been a skippy fan for the longest time. Just found out that it is now made in China. It's one of the priciest peanut butter on the supermarket shelves. I don't mind paying slightly higher for a product of USA (more importantly for the taste). However, the price remains the same but now made in China? For me, it's time to move on to others.

:hi5: I stopped buying Skippy after realizing that it is MIC. Tried a couple of other brands, but didn't find one that we like. The current bottle (a product of USA) has been sitting in the fridge for quite a while.

Oh dear, I didn't know Skippy is made in China. I usually pick one n go. Never check.

Now better stop buying Skippy.

Can recommend other brands?

Yet to find one that we like. So kinda stopped eating peanut butter liao. Current bottle in the fridge is Peter Pan. Finds it too sweet. And it doesn't come in small-sized bottles.

Time to fry up some peanuts and make our own peanut butter?

Skippy "reduced fat" is made in US. So there's no need to give up your favourite brand.

We have been buying Skippy "reduced fat" too since we found out the regular one is made in China a few years ago.
