Jif’s New Squeezable Pouches Makes Serving Peanut Butter Insanely Easier

A nice creamy peanut butter sandwich is one of the purest delights in this life. The only downside for me, however, is sometimes I’ll fumble with the knife and make my peanut to bread ratio pretty uneven. The sandwich will still be delicious, don’t get me wrong, but some bites will have more bread than peanut butter and vice versa.

Now you can control the portion of peanut butter delivered to any vessel thanks to these new Jif Squeeze Creamy Peanut Butter.

The peanut butter brand has released a new squeezable pouch that releases your peanut butter with the precision of a seasoned surgeon. Through this new method, you can measure much more accurately for recipes and more importantly serve ants on a log without making a mess of your presentation.

You can find these new pouches and mini To Go containers at participating retailers and online this July.

Peanut Butter Brand Jif to Launch Line of Hazelnut Spreads

For those concerned parties that think Nutella has too dominant a share of the hazelnut spread market (har har), rest a bit easier tonight: Jif, the popular peanut butter purveyor, is releasing their own line of hazelnut spreads.

Despite Nutella‘s recent uphill battle regarding the healthiness of their product, Jif is pushing forward with the release of both their Chocolate and Mocha Cappuccino flavored hazelnut spreads.

Both of Jif’s new hazelnut spreads have similar nutritional makeup. Each flavor will run you nearly 230 calories and 14 grams per serving, and only net you 2 grams of protein.

It may not be the healthiest spread around, but as long as Jif doesn’t market it as a ‘healthy’ product, they can avoid similar recent troubles that Nutella faced.

Will you be trying Jif’s new spread? Have you already? Compare it to Nutella in the comments!
