I did not grow up on Skippy. My dad was a bit of a health nut, so we ate the old-fashioned natural peanut butter that when you first opened the jar you needed to mix the thick layer of oil from the top with the rest of the peanut butter that had settled below. Not a fun task. MaraNatha is the perfect compromise for me between the peanut butter that I grew up with and the peanut butter that all my friends had in their refrigerator. It's just the right combination of peanuts, salt, sugar, creamy and crunchy - and did I mention it's "no stir"?
