Last time we were trying peanut butter, it was the Creamy variety. But it was only a matter of time before we'd round up the favorite Crunchies. This time, we divided the results into two categories: stir (with natural oil separation) and no-stir. First up: no-stir peanut butters (tomorrow we'll reveal the stir results). Today's tasting includes the Jif vs. Skippy rivalry, Peter Pan, Peanut Butter & Co., and the just re-released Planter's.
