Pantry Permanents

I do not need help using up the following items:

Cat and Starbucks bag.  I love my cat and I love my Starbucks!

Starbucks French Roast: I cannot live without it (especially once I entered parenthood) and you can see it tucked into various places in my pantry shelves if you look closely.  

By the way, don't be fooled into trying this stuff:
It's Starbucks "via," their line of instant coffee.  I really really wanted to like it since I don't always feel like brewing coffee when I want just one cup.  Unfortunately, it was the worst "coffee" I have ever had. Way worse than the old instants of yesteryear.  I got it when we weren't supposed to have power for 2+ weeks due to Hurricane Irene.  I returned the unopened packages I had.  YUCK.

And, if you have any of this left, don't rush to use it up!
Trader Joe's Organic Peanut Butter (made with Valencia peanuts) is NOT being made/bought anymore by TJ's!!

I spoke with store staff and emailed TJ's a few weeks ago on a standard TJ's run when I went to pick up several jars of this, my all time favorite peanut butter.  It has 9 grams of protein and only 2 grams of sugar for the standard two tablespoon serving and it tastes amazing with the perfect texture and amount of moisture (the consistency is very smooth and creamy, akin to a commercial, sugar infused, non-organic peanut butter). 

They said, basically, that they cannot get the Valencia peanuts anymore.

The solution may be Arrowhead Mills peanut butter, though not organic, is still made with Valencia peanuts and is the favorite of the laziest vegan, John McDevitt (Isa Moskowitz's boyfriend :-)

What are your pantry permanents? I have others...
