Skip to comments.Finally, An Advancement In Peanut Butter Jar Technology
Posted on 07/28/2013 5:46:57 AM PDT by Daffynition
Does that last bit of mayonnaise or peanut butter at the bottom of a jar really bother you? I usually hand the jar over to my dog and let her take care of it, but for some reason not everyone has a dog. Thats why some entrepreneurs have harnessed the technology behind deodorant sticks to eliminate this problem.

There was a peanut butter recall in 2012?
Yeah, they found dog saliva in the jars...
Peanut butter is a “staple” in my pantry. I would definately buy a brand that employed the twist-up jars.
A rubber spatula works great for getting that last bit out of the jar.
Iced tea spoon works very well.
One of the great joys in a dog’s life — sticking his snout in an “empty” jar of peanut butter.
You’re lucky you didn’t die, eh?
[Phew! That was a close one!]
Do you wash the jar B4 you recycle it?
I refuse to do that. It’s so dumb. You waste hot water and soap and time.....I put it in the regular trash.
Yes, I’m going to h3ll.
Man I’m jealous of the dog ;)
Yes, that is exactly how I get the last out of my peanut butter containers. I buy the big ones, 2 lbs plus size.
I often eat peanut butter and sliced banana sandwiches for a lite supper. Especially when I come in late from the farm and am too tired to think about cooking.
How about shorter, wider jars. Not rocket science!
“A rubber spatula works great for getting that last bit out of the jar.”
Yes; so you can call me lazy for hating to spend time doing that chore. Give me a twist-up jar and my lazy bones will cheer.
Howzbout eliminating the huge dimple on the bottom of Hellman’s mayo jar? That’s a bother, when you are trying to get the last swipe outta the jar.
GRRRR! The dimple trick. A jar of Hellmann’s mayonnaise, for example, has had its contents shrunk, yet the new jar looks as big as the old.
Or whatzup with Breyer’s ice cream it’s 2 qts now. Price stayed the same.
To find a 5# bag of sugar, I have to *hunt* to find one.
A new advancement .Pay more and get less.Notice how small these jars of peanut butter have gotten?
Mine are not artistic. They just taste good.
Great packaging evolution!
After viewing their promo video, I wish I was an investor for the product!
Thanks for the post.
I can see it now....a 3 y/o screws the dial on the jar too far....and wastes the whole contents. Mark my words.
Yes, I do wash everything out before I recycle. Not because I am a greenie but because I am afraid of the trash police in Fort Worth.
Now the saying “...the best thing since sliced bread” will be replaced by
“...the best thing since helical peanut butter jars.”
I’ve always thought the toothpaste type tube would be a viable alternative!
All that is needed is a jar wide enough to clear the knuckles of an average sized hand.
Seen it 100 times.
My problem is getting the jars open. I can usually open any jar, but the last two jars of Peter Pan lo fat PB required me to put the lid in my vise to open the dang things.
Then I’d be in big trouble and have to change my evil ways. ;)
In New Hampshire, they’d do spot checks of the trash and a sign threatened a fine. I never saw anyone get a fine though. There you would have to separate your glass by color.
I feel your pain.
Since a TBI, I lost a lot of the strength and small motor in my hands and those foil seals on the PB, under the lid are impossible for me to grasp. I have needle nose pliers in the junk drawer to help with that.
I didn't just say *gun*, did I?
Jokes on you. In those 8 hours, she chased the cat, chased her tail, tore up the furniture, barked at everyone who passed by and then slept for 7 1/2 hours.
When she heard you pull into the driveway she went back into the kitchen.
BUT you forgot a few things.....
Refreshing drinkie from the terlit....
Ate the cat poop, knocked over a few plants....
Yeah! Mom's home!
Quart jars of mayo have gone down the same road as 5 lb bags of sugar and gallon boxes of ice cream. Check the coffee shelves at the store to blow your mind on different sizes.
Be kind. That animation clobbered my browser and brought the whole machine to its knees!
” Great packaging evolution!”
I hope it turns out better than those damnedable ketchup bottles that you have to squeeze with enough force that when it comes out it blows whatever you’re putting it on off of the plate.
I just run a knife around most of those liners. Same with pet food bags. I can never get the string thing to open on dog food and the glued end is impossible to rip by hand. Knives are wonderful things.
Drop a couple of heaping spoons-full of Cool Whip into the jar and stir it around a bit. The peanut butter mixes with the Cool Whip and the jar comes clean, with the help of a scraping spatula of course. Haven’t found a kid yet that wouldn’t help with that job of cleaning out the jar ...
Man Im jealous of the dog ;...So’s your girlfriend.
If manufacturers would put peanut butter in straight side jars the last remnants wouldn't be so devilish to extract; but the shape is probably related to the plastic surviving the temps and pressures during canning.Oh yeah, and I nearly live off of peanut butter. I even stir a couple of tablespoons of it into my oatmeal.
Used peanut butter jars make good 'collection' jars for garbage at the sink, like veggie peels and used tea bags and K-cups, because you can tighten the lid and toss them in the trash when full of garbage and the garbage can doesn't stink for the period before being hauled out to the rubbish bin. I use quart yogurt containers this way too.
Do you dribble a little honey on your peanut butter and banana sandwich?....Sometimes, but she works a lot.
One Graham cracker pie crust (put it in the freezer for a day before using it)
One large container of Cool Whip (the big one, not the eight ounce one)
Two packages of Jello Instant Banana Pudding
One quart of Vanilla Yogurt
Two large banana, allowed to get soft but not brown peel
Five or six heaping tablespoons of peanut butter (I use smooth Bama brand)
Cut the bananas into 1/2 thick slices and fold them into the yogurt, then pour both packets of pudding mix into the yogurt bowl and beat with a whisk or stand mixer until all dry ingredients incorporated into the yogurt ... it gets really stiff very quickly, leaving small chunks of banana to find when eating. Spread the pudding into the graham cracker crust and refrigerate. Fold the six spoons of peanut butter into the thawed Cool Whip and top the pie making peaks. Put in fridge until ready to eat it. Great fridge pie!
Both Trader Joe’s and Skippy had salmonella problems, and a recall:
Yes, at time honey, at other times some preserves. All options are good.
Learned to like them from my mother. She made them by mashing up the bananas and mixing with the peanut butter. I finally learned it was much easier to simply slice them and place them on the peanut butter already applied to the bread. Very fast and I like it better now.
I like banana pudding very well, that is a twist.
