I'm a huge fan of smooth peanut butter, generic or name brand, doesn't matter. I've never tried the organic stuff, and due to my modest income I tend to shy away from buying anything for my cupboard that doesn't look like it would survive a nuclear winter.
I'm not really a health nut (ha ha), but I think that if your regular breakfast/lunch consists of english muffins or some other bread with peanut butter on top, choosing the sugary pb over the salty organic stuff isn't going to kill you. After all, many of your fellow Americans make worse choices for meals, such as CrapDonald's or some enormously high caloric 'coffee' at Starbuck's.
For a diversion this summer, I went to the Washington Hotel Coffee Room and tried out their pistachio butter sandwich with rhubarb jelly. Yum-my.
