    The question has been raised many times in kiddom and in adult hood, "if you could eat one thing for the rest of your life what would it be"........ For me it is Peanut Butter and Jelly and now I hear that the one food that I live and die by is going to go up in price by 40%?

    Ouch!!

    So how many of us are going to run to the store and buy up this delectable treat before it gets equal to the price of gas? :lol:

    My DH eats Peanut butter daily. I'm sure we will scrimp by elsewhere to insure PB is on the shelf:) I draw the line I will not give up fabric for PB!!!!!

    Not a really big PB eater but sometimes I just love a chunky PB sandwich, no jam or jelly. Make some PB cookies once in awhile. Better get me a couple of jars of super chunky to tide me over.

    DH won't even taste any PB. He's hated it since childhood when it used to separate and the PB was so thick it stuck to the roof of your mouth.

    I'm not a pb lover. My daughter gave me a small jar of it about a year ago, it still is in my cupboard, unopened.

    And I bet your dairy farmers didn't get a 52% raise for their milk! :)

    So, what you're saying is I made a huge mistake missing that case lot sale last month (sigh). I have kids, we NEED peanut butter. I usually find an empty jar of peanut butter either in the closet or under the bed when I clean out my daughters room.

    I heard about it- they said that b/c of the price of cotton farmers planted more cotton and less peanuts. I didn't realize it would be 40% though- OUCH!

    Always buy that stuff at Sams and haven't seen a huge price increase on things there yet. I've started a pantry in my basement and am stocking up on stuff like this. DH likes it every day and me once in a while on celery!

    Where I live no one carries the brand I like so I bought dry roasted peanuts at Wal Mart and made my own! Tastes good.

    I can do without pb but my son lives on the stuff. As a child, he was a picky eater and it has continued into adulthood. There are a very short list of foods that he likes....pb, bananas, ww bread, fresh milk, potatoes and carrots are his mainstays.

    I will stock up when it comes on sale..if it does? I like PBJ and I like to do peanut butter cookies too. Cookies use quite a bit because I always make a big batch. I like smooth for my sandwiches but smooth or crunchy for cookies.

    Mmmm, pb and banana sandwich on whole wheat bread sounds really good. Haven't had a banana sandwich in years.

    Funny aside. When my son Tim was young the boy next door, Matthew, was at our house all of the time, in fact some people thought he was Tim's twin. Problem was that Matthew never liked what I made for lunch, so I asked him what he liked. It was pb and jelly - not jam with lumps and baloney with mustard. So one day I made him one of those sandwiches, to my surprise it still wasn't a sandwhich he liked - he liked both of them put together. Told the kid I couldn't stomach making it so from now on he could bring his own sandwich. Family had funny food tastes. When it was one of the kid's birthday they got to choose the family dinner, one of them only wanted swiss cheese sandwichs with nothing on them and that's what everyone eat for dinner, no exceptions. Ugh, really dry and some people think pb is dry,

    So what you are saying is chunk or shredded cheese (not types like velveeta or cheese whiz--which are not cheese, but processed foods with some cheese/dairy products in them) that cost you $5 a pound last month now costs $7.50 a pound.
    FYI recently dairy economists are predicting milk prices to go down $2.50-$3.00 per hundred weight between now and mid 2012. It takes on average 10 # of milk to make a # of cheese. All things considered that means that by the end of the year that original $5 block of cheese should decrease $.25-.30 a pound.

    What's happened to the price of soda? At least PB and cheese feed our bodies with valuable protein, vitamins and minerals. Shop the perimeter of the grocery store to buy your food. We dairy farmers (as in the case of all farmers) live in a volatile market, and living within that market presents challenges.

    Recent USDA statistics state that in 2010 Americans spent 9.4% of their incomes on food; in 1952 that figure was 20.8. 1930--24.2%.
    http://www.ers.usda.gov/Briefing/CPI...les/table7.htm
    We are still spending less on food than other citizens of the world.

    Oh this sounds so familiar ... USA or Canada ... price goes up, though usually it's not the producer that is getting the extra $$$$, rather all those who are involved in the chain from moo to you. Similarly other commodities!

    Great figures OKSewGlad ... the primary producers continue to do a better job of producing food for all.

    1910 ... one farmer produced enough food to feed 12 people
    Today ... one farmer produces enough for 130 people!

    (note, one farmer, not one farm ... so the numbers would go up incrementally dependant on the work force involved)

    My DH LOVES pb, and the kids like it too. I could live without ever seeing it again. I don't hate it, just not on my preferred list at all. Every time it's on coupon at Costco, he gets excited and asks at least once a week if we don't need some? Do we need pb? Are we out of pb? I don't see any in the pantry (truly not a clue WHERE to look in there)-don't we need some? As much as I say NO! we have plenty, he will always come home with at least one two pack, usually two-because he thought we needed it! I guess my no must really mean "We are absolutely out. We don't have a teaspoon left. Please, stock up. The eight jars in the pantry aren't enough."
