Peanut butter goes portable

September 4, 2006
In a switch to PET from glass offering "choosy Moms" a portable healthy snack, the J.M. Smucker Co. introduced its creamy Jif To Go peanut butter spread in 2.25-oz., single-serve cups for snacking on the go. Serving suggestions include using the portion-controlled peanut butter as a healthy dip for such items as apples and pretzels.

The new shelf-stable version of the company's Jif peanut butter is packed in clear plastic thermoformed cups from Winpak Portion Packaging, Newtown, PA. The cups are sold in multipacks of six in a paperboard sleeve.

Jif's trademark red, blue and green stripes with its white logo are printed on the cup's peelable foil lidding, which can be easily removed for on-the-go eating.
