Peanut Butter In Europe?

Can't live without my daily PB
Leaving in a few weeks for a long bike trip and curious if it is available in Europe.
Will take some if I need to but would prefer not to

yes you can buy peanut butter in Europe- I recommend the Sunpat- whatever you do stay away from German made peanut butter-it really sucks

the only peanut butter I've had in Europe was in Ireland. It tasted like that thick, dry all-natural stuff we have over here. If you're into JIF or something of that ilk, then I recommend bringing some. Of course, that doesn't mean that there aren't better options in other parts of Europe.

come to think of it German Peanut butter might be similar to US peanut butter- so if you are from the US then you might really love German peanut butter- there`s no accounting for taste I suppose

No, German peanut butter isn't much like American peanut butter. But if you go to Germany you should be using nutella anyway

Just as long as they get Vegemite for when I go over there, I'll be happy.

I had to ban peanut butter from my house several years ago because I love it so much, I used to scoop it up and eat it as if it were ice-cream!! I got too fat!

Do you know it has more 19% more calories than chocolate?!?!?

I think thats the same as Marmite and you will only be able to buy it in the UK-other Europeans are horrified by it

Chris!

Vegemite is available in the UK. We also have Marmite which is similar stuff. When and where you going?

[QUOTE=ultimate]jelly is jam in europe

Isn't there are slight difference? I remember as a kid in Scotland we used to have a choice of jelly, which was sugary, fruity and pectin-based and jam, which is of course the "normal" stuff. I know the French do some lovely jam, tho it is expensive.
