This Is The Oldest Peanut Butter Brand In The US
While most people know the most prominent peanut butter brands like Jif and Skippy, they might not be familiar with the oldest in America. Krema Products Company was created in 1898 and began selling its brand of peanut butter in 1908, which was made from just peanuts — no added sugar or salt.
Richard Sonksen acquired Krema in 1988 along with Crazy Richard's Peanut Butter, with the additional brand helping Sonksen increase his distribution. Krema peanut butter has gone through a significant rebrand and is now sold under the Crazy Richard label.
Crazy Richard's Peanut Butter might not have the same recognition as other brands, but it ranks high with nutritionists and chefs for its low sugar content, with two tablespoons having only 190 calories, eight grams of protein, 16 grams of fat, and two grams of sugar. Shoppers can find Crazy Richard's Peanut Butter at Wal-Mart and specialty stores.
