Without a doubt, the one type of food that I eat more than any other is peanut butter. I usually eat at least one peanut butter sandwich and / or a bunch of peanut butter crackers every day. After seeing CVS Gold Emblem brand Creamy Peanut Butter on display at a local CVS Pharmacy for a couple of weeks, I purchased an 18 ounce jar last week and I’m very glad that I did so.
Normally, I consume either Skippy, Jif or Stop & Shop brand peanut butter and I found the CVS product to be quite comparable to the other, named brands. Presented here, as a service to the consumer at large, is one food writer’s product review of CVS Gold Emblem brand Creamy Peanut Butter.
The net weight of the standard – sized jar of CVS Gold Emblem brand Creamy Peanut Butter is 18 ounces. The jar is essentially the same size as most other jars of peanut butter and is easy to store. According the product label, the jar holds approximately 16 two – tablespoon servings of peanut butter.
The only price that I have seen charged for the 18 ounce jar of CVS brand Creamy Peanut Butter is $2.49. I honestly don’t know if this is the regular price, or an extended sale price. This price is a little bit cheaper than most other brands of peanut butter, although I think that the CVS Gold Emblem brand Peanut Butter is every bit as good as most other brands.
The texture of CVS Gold Emblem brand Creamy Peanut Butter is, as the name implies, smooth and creamy. This peanut butter offers such a delightful mouth feel, that I enjoy eating it plain, straight-from-the-jar. This creamy peanut butter spreads easily on bread, toast, muffins, bananas, crackers and virtually any other item that you might like to accent with peanut butter.

Taste / Flavor
This brand of peanut butter really does taste good. I regularly eat peanut butter more than any other food and I think that CVS Gold Emblem brand Peanut Butter is just as good, if not better than, most name brand varieties of peanut butter. As soon as I opened the jar, the aroma that was given off, was that of real peanuts.
When I first tasted CVS Gold Emblem brand Creamy Peanut Butter, my initial thought was that it offered a real peanut flavor. Just for accuracy, I took a taste of the CVS brand Creamy Peanut Butter a couple of minutes ago and right away, I noticed the real, peanutty flavor that this item offers. This peanut butter is also fairly sweet and it features just the right amount of salt.
A very good indicator of how tasty a variety of peanut butter is, is if the product is satisfying when it is eaten plain, straight – from – the – can. CVS Gold Emblem brand Creamy Peanut Butter passes this taste test, admirably. The only thing is, every time I try a taste of this peanut butter, I have to eat more of it, because it is so tasty.
CVS Gold Emblem brand Creamy Peanut Butter is packaged in a standard type, plastic peanut butter jar that sports a bright red cap. The front label features a red and black background with a nice illustration of an open-faced peanut butter sandwich and the rear label lists all relevant ingredient and nutritional information. The jar opens easily and also re-closes effectively.
All things considered, CVS Gold Emblem brand Creamy Peanut Butter is a delightful variety of peanut butter that is very tasty and reasonably priced. Available at CVS Pharmacies across America, this product is highly recommended by this food writer.
