Not if it was an ...: Allergic reaction the first time. Peanut allergy tends to be persistent. If you've tolerated peanuts since the initial reaction, it might not have been peanut allergy at all. You need to see an allergist and get tested.

No: Reaction to peanuts / peanut butter is a reaction to peanuts / peanut butter. There is no categorization or differentiation between "cheap" or "expensive " peanuts/ peanut butter.
