However, the expiration dates are probably manufacturer recommended which means it could probably go for another 6 months to a year after that which is about as long as I could possibly expect to be around in my current situation if SHTF. Thanks for the info.
    I have peanut butter much older then a year (maybe 4 years old) still good... I will check but pretty sure the date on it is best buy not an expiration date.
    what foods still have an expiration date... even milk is best buy

    all kinds of regular use foods that are pantry rotational storage >>> set up racking that makes the rotation system eazier - mark everything going into the pantry with a buy date - most retail shelf items have upwards of 5 years storage regardless of the manufacturer's suggested termination date .....

    The type that last the longest is penuts themselfs whole in the shell grow a new crop every year. For long term food you have to grow it. Penut butter in a normal jar last long enough without doing anything special after that be ready to grow your own. Or grow what you can and trade for it.

    Don't forget to stock up on a 2 to 3 ratio of Welch's grape jelly to go with that Skippy chunky peanut butter.

    Someone at work introduced me to the idea of powdered peanut butter. When they first brought it up, I thought blasphemy, they should have their rotten tongue cut out. Then I tried it... wasn't half bad. In fact I got used to it. I take it camping and such.

    I vac pack the PB powder in ball jars with a food saver. Gotta be careful and use a coffee filter up in the lid attachment to keep the power out of the pump mechanism though. works well!

    It just so happens that I'm eating an apple with Great Value peanut butter right now. Purchase date: 12/16, best by date:09/17. So I can confirm it tastes fine.

    I'm actually of the opinion that there is no such thing as "bad" peanut butter.

    Some is just a bit better than the others.

    Skippy Crunchy wears the crown in my dietary circle but YMMV.

These types are also more expensive and I am really watching my budget and I want to make the best choices at the cheapest prices.

    Any suggestions for a good inexpensive peanut butter without sugar or other unwanted additives that will last and remain spreadable? Or should I just stick with Peter Pan, Jiffy, etc.?
    It's the fat that will make it rancid.
    Very old peanuts doesn't taste good, and I imagine the same for very old peanutbutter.

    I find that the brand Jiff has a longer best-before date than Kraft. I don't know what other brands you've got available.
    Check out and compare best-before dates.
