For Canadians who continue to miss not finding Skippy peanut butter and snacks on convenience store and grocery shelves, will be happy to learn that the iconic brand is returning to Canada.

After a seven-year hiatus, Hormel Foods Corporation—which acquired the Skippy brand in 2013—announced it is returning its most famous brand to Canada with an innovative marketing campaign, by providing Canadian retailers five new peanut butter snack offerings.

The new snack offerings are making an appearance at the SIAL Canada 2024 show at the Palais des Congrès in Montreal, along with a Skippy Crispy Thin Potato Cookies, which will be available in June at select Costco Canada retailers.
