What brand of peanut butter does everyone use. Currently I'm using Skippy Smooth. Says no Trans Fat whatever that means but has like 140 calories from fat. I'm currently researching the types of fats on the forums but just want to double check on what type of fats are in peanuts or nuts in general.

it's said that processed non-natural peanut butter such as Skippy Smooth can get away with a label of 0 trans fatty acids even though there is a little bit in there because it has less than half a gram of trans fatty acids.

I've never heard of Krema. Would that be in the reg grocery stores or do i have to go to like Whole Foods or Trader Joes?

I find it at a local grocery store. It's my favorite because the only ingredient is peanuts, no added salt or anything. Tastes the best in my opinion too.
