Most supermarkets sell Skippy or Sun-pat - usually in the baking section near the nuts

Sometimes they hide it near the jam. It seems to be one of those products they can't quite place so is used to fill up a gap. You have to hunt it down, but it will be in there somewhere.

Jordnötsmör if you don't see peanut butter, and can be found literally anywhere, not necessarily where you think it might be in the store. As said previously, they don't know how to categorise it.

NK has a good selection (for Sweden) of both the classics (Skippy) as well a couple of organic/ecolo. choices.

Mississippi Belle is sold at some ICA stores and is the only decent peanut butter I've found here. Skippy is made here in Sweden and thus doesn't have to be 90% peanuts and isn't made using hydrogenated vegetable oil, so it's just this gritty mess in a jar. Peter Pan can be found at City Gross and is okay though old and out of date more often than not.

@Snood, Did you mean self-raising or self-rasing flour? What is it called in Swedish?

@johnjohn I don't think you can get self rising flour here and especially not self rasing flour, only self raising and It's called "Extra Fint Mjöl"

What is self rasing flour? flour which completely destroys itself? like anti-flour? smile.gif

Since your home is listed as Gbg, then of course you must be familiar with the Indian Food House on Hisingen, where McDougals Self Raising Flour can be found along with various brands of peanut butter. The shop is a true godsend for those wanting curries of all flavours, flour too, Tate & Lyle Black Treacle and Demarara sugar - for your coffee, Bird's Custard, Horlicks, Milo Drinking chocolate, Fray Bentos tinned steak and kidney pies, Hayward's and Branston pickles and heaven knows what else. Not exactly cheap, but reasonable. Better on the whole than the English Shop, but unfortunately not on line. Once there, you can rub shoulders with folks from all over.

Yes, the Skippy brand (not Australian) is in the supermarkets!

But I like Kraft Peanut Paste...never too dry, never too oily! :-)
