I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Smucker’s. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
Growing up near Knott’s Berry Farm meant Smucker’s all the time. They have since become separate entities but I still love their jam and even more so their all natural peanut butter. When I first encountered Smucker’s natural peanut butter on the shelf my thought’s were “They make peanut butter?” and in the basket it went. I am a serious Californian based in Texas and you just don’t get those goodies here all the time. Now that it’s a regular on the shelf here I have to say the coolest treat we’ve made with it is peanut butter rolls. You can add jelly or mayo, if you swing that way, to it or just have them by themselves. The daughter likes hazelnut spread on them.
When I first made these a few years ago the boys took them to school. All of the teenagers are their school wanted to trade lunches with them. After that my cap’n crunch cookies were the big cheese. It’s nice to have people appreciate your food along with your talent too. Just as much as I appreciate the outdoors. I have my days where watching a movie with beautiful forests in them make me feel like I could go live in the trees. Other days I don’t want to even walk outside. That being said this January, Smucker’s, Laura Scudder’s and Adams Natural Peanut Butter have teamed up to support the national parks through a $100,000 donation to the National Parks Conservation Association’s (NPCA) America’s Great Waters Program. Starting in January, look for the .25 cent-off coupons on shelves in your local stores towards the purchase of a jar of natural peanut butter. For every coupon redeemed by March 24, 2014, Smucker’s will donate $1 to the NPCA, up to an additional $50,000.
In the meantime, check out the Smucker’s Facebook page for ways you can make a difference in your community this year. Here is the recipe for Smucker’s Peanut Butter Rolls.
