where to find North American style peanut butter

Anyone know where in Edinburgh I can buy North American style peanut butter, by which I mean the homogenized, salt and sugar added style instead of the healthy additive free unprocessed peanut butter I have found in Edinburgh's Sainsbury stores?

I've never been in Sainsbury's so can't comment on their peanut-butter, but I'm pretty sure Tesco and other supermarkets sell the salty/sugary/non-healthy (!) peanut-butter that it sounds like you're after ...

Try some of the bigger branches of the major supermarkets - they might do Smuckers Peanut Butter or something...

Harvey Nicks stock Reese's chocolate and peanut butter cups. Perhaps they've got the jars of peanut butter too.

Waitrose is the only UK chain I've found that sells Skippy peanut butter - which I think is the sort you like (I do too). However I don't think there are any Waitrose branches in Edinburgh - unless any locals know differently?

Can you tell us why you want it ?

If you are living in Edinburgh, then I understand why you want to know where to get it.

But if you are just visiting from Canada, then as someone else said, bring it with you.

If you are living here, get it shipped over if you can't find what you looking for.

I would try Lupe Pintos at 24 Leven Street, Tollcross. Although they call themselves a mexican deli they do stock a large range of products from the US. Failing that a trip to Costco at Loanhead would be best, they stock loads of items that absolutely no where else sells. Happy Shopping.
