    Default Squeeze tubes for peanut butter

    Here's what I'm looking for..... a tube (similar to a toothpaste tube) that I can fill with peanut butter. I'd much rather buy a jar of peanut butter and fill the tube myself than buy the smaller individual size tubes. Does anyone know where I can find tubes like this or if they even exist? Thanks!

    campmor carries them, made by coglans(sp?) and they do not work. you'll just end up taking the little clippy thing off of the end and digging the pb out with your spoon.

    Serveral people were using these on the trail. I have one. I don't have a problem with the PB coming out. The hole on mine is pretty large and the PB is always soft enough to come out. I got mine at a local outfitter, but have seen them several places. Mine came 2 to a pack for about $4.
    HAPPY TRAILS TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD HIKE!

    Just take the small plastic jar - it's much easier and you won't have oil leaking out of the clip end or a blow out, etc. Besides, you'll eat it all anyway within a few days, why repackage it?

    Here's the Campmor link. Squeeze tubes for peanut butter are convenient to dispense onto crackers, but they are messy to load and difficult to clean. I donít use mine much anymore, and wouldnít want the bother of re- supplying it on the trail. A full tube is heavy and, nowadays, itís easy to find peanut butter in plastic jars. For small quantities, I pack 3-4 tablespoons, in a screw- capped plastic vial.

    Default Pb

    I didn't even like the PB in squeeze bottles as you could not get it all out without surgery on the container. I found tubes to be the same. Stuck with the plastic jar. Whatever works for you.

    Someone of wilderness survival forums explains how to do it. Make/reuse tubes for putting stuff in.

    ==========================

    FWIW ...they are great in concept but a real PITA to load and reload. I tried them years ago (REI brand). Started with separate ones for pnut butter and jelly and evolved into a mixed pnut butter/jelly tube. Worked pretty well but like I said before ...royal PITA to reload.

    For all the effort involved you'd be ahead of the game to just buy the commercial pnut butter (or jelly) in tubes in the grocery store.

    Has squeeze peanut butter disappeared? I love it and squeeze jelly.

    The original ones were called "Gerry tubes", made/marketed by the Gerry equipment company out of Colorado (I think). I think I still have two from back then. But, as others have noted, they are a PITA to load and clean, and since they dd tend to leak oil, you had to put them in zip-loc bags to avoid a mess in your pack. Back when peanut butter ONLY came in glass jars, the weight savings (and the additional safety) they provided was substantial, but now that peanut butter comes in plastic jars, why not just take the jar? You KNOW you'll eat it all.

    Ah, yes. I was trying to remember what we called these tubes, back then. Thanks for the stroll down memory lane.

    Forget the mess and weight. Use PB2: http://www.bellplantation.com/
    Kind of like the Butter Buds of the legume world.

    I thought they were great - best for Mayo!

    Did you hear they OUTLAWED Australian Vegimite, in the USA, also sold in tubes?
