Since we are already using natural peanut butter we wanted to give the Jif natural a try to see how it fared against our current favorites – Skippy Natural peanut butter “creamy”and Smuckers Natural peanut butter “creamy”.

In our home we are continually doing things to live a “green” lifestyle. Luckily, Preserve asked us to review one of their newest eco-friendly product lines.
