You will probably never see the variety of flavors that u see in the US here.
As true as that may be, the demand should still be strong enough to compete with Kraft.
I have not tried the Simply Jif, but if it's better than Kraft's lite blue label, then it should do well here...not sure what the complication is.

When I used to buy Jif in Canada, I think the third ingredient was peanut oil, which is better than the regular stuff from Kraft. Hopefully they haven't changed the formulation after this comeback. I will be checking this week...btw, there were $1 off coupons for Jif at Independent.

I wonder why there is no Canadian version of the Jif web page. Smuckers (they make Jif) has a list of many other items available here, but no Jif... http://www.smuckers.ca/About-Smuckers
That is odd - it just hit the shelves so maybe Smuckers Canada HQ hasn't updated yet. I suspect there will be coupons in the flyer packs soon. Will be looking out for that for sure.

Had some Jif this morning on a bagel. YUM!

My favourite PB, used to bring it back from the US. Happy that it is now available in Canada!

My local A&W offers Jif PB packets now as a breakfast spread.

If they were already offering Smucker's jam, then it makes good sense. (same company-Smucker's makes Jif, lol)

Jif packets never left (they've been in the commercial catering world the whole time) - it's the consumer jars that are coming back.
The packets were how I tried it and liked it, only to find that I couldn't buy a jar for home use. Which was insane. Glad it's back.

4.49 at superstore, and $1 off coupon = 3.49
Not much more than the Kraft sales.

Thanks! That's even better than the Metro deal. 1kg $4.99.
Metro went all out in their flyer. (page 8)
"Taste the Jifference" in big bold letters
and "Over 1,300 peanuts in every jar".
5 bonus reward miles when you buy one.
(superstore price vs Metro = 50 cents for 5 airmiles, lol)

It's probably no coincidence - they're likely matching Metro's price plus the air miles value as I don't recall seeing it in the superstore flyer, just happened to walk by a display of it today and see 4.49 on a big sign.

That may be why I like the PC point system better. They don't go jacking up prices just to collect them. lol

I'm thinking this is out East...my RCSS doesn't have it yet and Independent's price is $5.49, so I'll wait. The coupon doesn't expire until Sept 30th anyway.

Yes, sorry. RCSS East. ON, specifically.
