We’re always looking for excuses to nibble on treats at the office, and National Peanut Butter Day is the perfect excuse to break out a jar and spoon for a mid-afternoon snack. In honor of this special holiday, we’ve surveyed the office on everyone’s favorite brand of peanut butter and crunch preference. The data shows we have a quite varied palate when it comes to brand, but the trend towards a good jar of crunchy peanut butter was overwhelming.
As you can see in this 3 to 1 ratio, crunchy peanut butter took the lead in this face off. A few brave souls ventured to say “smooth” for their response, but as a whole the crunchy preference presides.
When it came to brand preference, fresh peanut butter from the grinder at our local grocery stores tied with Justin’s Peanut Butter for first place. Classic JIF came in a close second. Another notable favorite was Peanut Butter & Co, which also has a sandwich shop near our office where you can get sandwiches like Cookie Dough Surprise: Peanut butter on one side, cream cheese on the other, and stuffed with chocolate chips. Can you say “light lunch”?
Now it’s your turn: Crunchy or smooth?
