My 95 year old Mom loves them. Of course she's on lockdown in memory care. Maybe I stock up and hope I see her again

I always buy those big jars because we actually go through them and per serving they are a great deal. I have a teen and a pre-teen and especially now since I can't even buy food I have a difficult time eating enough protein and calories to make it through the day. So the PB comes in handy. The 16 oz jar could be wiped out in a day at my house.
