PEANUT BUTTER BLUES….

20 Oct

WE WERE NOTIFIED LAST WEEK THAT PEANUT BUTTER PRICES IN THE US WILL BE GOING WAY, WAY UP ! I DON’T KNOW HOW THIS WILL EFFECT OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD BUT MANY OF US USE PEANUT BUTTER AS AN INEXPENSIVE AND DELICIOUS SOURCE OF PROTEIN FOR OUR SMOOTHIES AND EVERYDAY DIET.

I BOUGHT A COUPLE OF BIG TUBS YESTERDAY WHICH SHOULD LAST SEVERAL MONTHS AT LEAST.

THIS IS BEING BLAMED ON CLIMATE CHANGES.

Wholesale prices for big-selling Jif are going up 30% starting in November, while Peter Pan will raise prices as much as 24% in a couple weeks.Unilever would not comment on its pricing plans, but a spokesman for Wegmans Food Markets said wholesale prices for all brands it carries, including Skippy, are 30 percent to 35 percent higher than a year ago.

Kraft Foods Inc., which launched Planters peanut butter in June, is raising prices 40 percent on Oct. 31, a spokeswoman said.
