"Reduced Fat Jif" was introduced four years later in 1995.

Since 1981, Jif has been the leading peanut butter brand in the United States.

Advertising

For many decades, TV commercials for the product have ended with the tagline, "Choosy mothers choose Jif" and, in the 1990s, "Choosy moms choose Jif." During the 2000s, the tagline was again updated, now being said as "choosy moms, "and dads", choose Jif."

Production

There are now six different kinds of Jif Peanut Butter: Creamy, Extra Crunchy, Simply Jif (low sodium and sugar), Reduced Fat, Reduced Fat Crunchy, and Peanut Butter & Honey. Jif is also available in a sixpack of individual servings of Jif Peanut butter, sold under the name "Jif to Go."
