what colors do you guys think in the sculpeyIII would mix together and best match the color of peanut butter?

I don't use Sculpey III so not too sure which colors they have now, but I took a look at the color chart at Polymer Clay Express so can take a guess.

First, I'd have a jar of peanut butter open to compare to. 

Then it looks like the "Tan" would be the closest to pb color but the colors online may not be true.  If Tan is too light, then add a bit of dark brown (Chocolate) (or red + green + a tad of black).   Peanuts are more on the yellow side of brown than the red side though, so you might add a tiny bit of any kind of yellow or gold to the basic mix too.

Oops, just saw the "new" colors, so you could also start from Hazelnut (or even Chocolate) then go lighter and yellower.

You might want to make the final mixed color a tad lighter than you'll want in the end  because it will probably darken some when cured.  Would also be good to do a test with a few different samples, then put them next to a sample of the baked color you'll be using for the jelly, or bread, etc. for auditioning.

For chunky pb, the prebaked chunks should be lighter in color than the rest of the pb, I'd think. 

(then mix with a bit of Vaseline, Diluent, liquid clay, veg.oil, glycerine, etc., to the desired mooshiness...for "natural pb," make a lot thinner and perhaps use a little bit of gloss after baking)
