The best feeling in the world as a kid, would be opening up your lunchbox at lunchtime and seeing your mom's peanut butter and jelly sandwich that she made just for you.

For me, it needed to be on white bread, have grape jelly smeared all across the inside, and smooth Jif peanut butter coating the other side of the sandwich.

Now, I'm getting kind of hungry...

But not all peanut butters are created equal. There are some brands that are full of unhealthy ingredients. A publisher called 24/7 Wall Street put together a list of the worst peanut butter brands (according to them).

Several of these brands are actually popular here in Iowa.
