Help Solve This Jif Peanut Butter Mystery

I eat these Jif To-Go peanut butter packs regularly. I’m not sure if the mindfulness practicing I’ve been doing finally kicked in or what but I had a revelation.

As I opened a pack of Jif To-Go for a protein packed snack, it suddenly occurred to me that there is a small square in the middle of the lid that does not have peanut butter. A peanut butter free zone that you can find on every Jif To-Go lid. At least the hundred or so that I’ve eaten have had this same square.

Naturally I wanted to share my finding with other humans because, well, I was shocked. Seeing as how I was at work, the first person to approach me after this finding was an inmate. He was not as shocked by the phenomenon and seemed slightly annoyed that I had brought it to his attention. Probably because he can’t get Jif To-Go in prison.

With no one to discuss this matter with I took to searching the internet. While I didn’t find anything on the company website addressing how this phenomenon occurs I did find a Reddit feed about it: My Friend’s Lid Has A Perfect Peanut Butter Rectangle On It – Reddit

Reddit being what it is, I was greeted with many theories surrounding the mysterious peanut butter free square but no one had a straight answer.

So I went to the source. I logged into Twitter and messaged @Jif with this:

They have yet to respond but my curiosity will not let this mystery go unsolved.
