Retrosink: 1970’s Salton Peanut Butter Maker

1970's Salton Peanut Butter Maker

It’s not available anymore, but check out this 1970’s Salton Peanut Butter Maker that was up for sale on Amazon. Dig that orange and yellow palette! I can almost taste the 70s on my palate. They probably used to make so many of these things that they had to ship them on a pallet. Wouldn’t you agree, pals?

*** UPDATE 12/11/13 ***
It would be pretty hard to hunt down one of these vintage peanut butter makers again, so in the meantime, here is a new one: Nostalgia Electrics NBM400 Electric Peanut Butter Maker. Not colorful nor highly rated, it won’t evoke the same memories, but hey, it’s less than $30. Just imagine how many bags of peanuts that could buy in 1970!

Grandpa Witmer Mixes Up The Peanut Butter

Grandpa Witmer's Model 100 Old Fashioned Natural Peanut Butter Mixer 3214

Good peanut butter is essential. But as anyone knows who goes for the good stuff, it tends to separate upon standing. One could use a butter knife to mix up the peanut butter, having it emerge from the jar like some kind of peanut butter club, or one could use Grandpa Witmer’s Old Fashioned Natural Peanut Butter Mixer. Then again, if you use a butter knife as a stirring implement, half of the jar of peanut butter is likely to stick to it, and then you would have to eat it–which really isn’t a bad thing after all.

Product Description
Oil separation is a natural occurrence for non-hydrogenated peanut butter. This innovative new device will easily stir the peanut butter in the original conatiner without splashing the oil. It conveniently cleans the mixing rod upon removal from the jar

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups Go Mini At CES

In one of the most unexpected launches at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the Reese’s® brand, makers of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, today, unveiled the latest mini-innovation in candy snacks – Reese’s Minis. Billed as the “Next Big, Little Thing™,” Reese’s Minis are making history as the smallest Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups ever, and the first snacking candy to be introduced at CES. In fact, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups is The Official Candy of the Consumer Electronics Show.

It might not be the biggest news out of CES 2011, but it could be the littlest. Well, the most edible at least. Taking advantage of the electronics show to announce a new miniature product may be commonplace, but The Hershey Company usually isn’t involved. However, when the announcement is regarding Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, they get the benefit of the doubt.
