    Besides crunchy and creamy versions, you can find peanut butters labeled “low-sugar,” “low-sodium,” “no trans fats,” even “made with Valencia peanuts.” Regardless of the touts, most are made the same way: Peanuts are roasted, ground with salt and sugar, then mixed with an added fat component to prevent separation. During testing, we found some spreads so pasty we got an upper-body workout stirring them; other “spreads” ripped bread. A few had the aroma and flavor of just-ground glory―abundantly peanutty and perfect for spooning right out of the container. In the end, several staffers decided to ditch their household brand for...

    Court Denies Smucker's PB&J Pastry Patent By MALIA RULON Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) -- There's only so far you can go in trying to patent the ever-popular peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
