Good News! My Peanut Butters back and its better than before…hey now, hey now…beloved Kirkland Signature Organic Peanut Butter from Costco has officially begun hitting the shelves! If you recall, Costco organic peanut butter disappeared without warning this summer and caught us all off guard (and low on inventory!)…but we confirmed it was fully stocked in-store at Costco locations in Maryland, Virginia and Georgia…and the list is growing. It does cost a buck more now, but it’s still organic, it’s still Valencia Peanuts, it’s still unsweetened, and it’s even the same item number. Phew.
Glen Burnie, MD, Chesterfield & Apex, VA, Los Angeles & San Francisco, CA and Cummings, GA all have Kirkland Organic Peanut Butter back…do you? Let us know in the comments if your store has it!
We sure missed our Kirkland PB! They say you don’t know what you have until it’s gone…well that’s the truth! If you’re new to Costco and you’re wondering what the heck I’m so excited about…I guess we’re kinda a HUGE peanut butter family, we eat it daily…and we’ve tried every organic unsweetened peanut butter from Whole Foods, Sprouts, Trader Joe’s plus the major chains and this KS organic peanut butter at Costco is our favorite (this peanut butter is our second favorite). And to boot Costco organic peanut butter is a super good price, and made from Valencia Peanuts!
We brought you the bad news when the KS Organic Peanut Butter it was pulled from shelves in July, and we’re pleased to bring you the news it’s back! Make sure you’re following us on CostcoOrganic and CostContessa for all our updates in real time.
