New Shedd's bucket?
« on: June 01, 2022, 03:07:10 PM »
I just acquired this a few days ago. I don't recall ever seeing this version before (crunchy peanut butter, with the Free Wacky Packs Inside! reference on the lid). Click on pic to see it larger.

So, I'm presuming that Shedd's had a creamy peanut butter and, seemingly, no one knew they even had a crunchy version...until now.

Bigtomi, did you show this to Greg on his forum? I know he has a section on the Shedd's Wackys, but I don't think he has this fact listed. This is a good find.

UPDATE: Never mind, I saw that you did; thanks.

Great find, but who on earth keeps a bucket of Peanut Butter for 45 years? Shedds must have been an East Coast brand….ive never seen it around the Midwest…

If it was an East Coast brand, I never saw it in Pennsylvania. The only peanut butters I know from my childhood in that state were Skippy, Jif, and Peter Pan.

Maybe it's a West Coast brand?

Very cool Tom! Did you find this in the wacky category or somewhere else on ebay - or not on ebay at all?

Well, I’ve always known that there was a crunchy version, as that’s what we bought when I was a kid.
There just hadn’t been a physical artifact for it found yet

Made in Detroit
As it says on the lid
I grew up in Michigan and we ate this for quite a few years

Okay, then it's a Midwestern brand. No wonder I never heard of it. Thanks, Patrick.

I have a couple of Shedd's Wackys Crunchy buckets - one orange and one yellow.  However, the buckets themselves are different.  The yellow one says Free Wackys on the side, and the other is "generic looking" - similar to this one.  I also have another 4 lb bucket like just this one, but it doesn't mention Wackys on it or the lid.  So I decided not to bid on this auction since I already had the lid, and I wasn't really sure that the bucket went with it.  I've seen a lot of mismatched Shedd's buckets on eBay.

I also think this is a mismatched set, as you say, as the colors are so different between the two

With peanut butter cookies and peanut butter bread, not long.  I used to buy 2-packs of the stuff in big jars from Costco, which were probably 2.5 pounds apiece.

The bucket is 5 pounds, not gallons.
