I’m pretty sure this isn’t the first time I’ve ever shared my love of all things peanut butter with you.
When I was a kid – I was a crunchy PB kinda gal. Seriously, you have no idea how much ire I held for people who tried to offer me the creamy stuff. If looks could kill…
I don’t do a whole lot of product reviews on the blog. Although, to be perfectly honest, I would love to start. Because sometimes I come across something that is too good not to share.
A while back, I mentioned in a post about my love of Peanut Butter & Co’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter. And ya know, that only mildly embarrassing fact that I buy it in bulk.
I promise you, I haven’t been paid for this review. I spend my own (err… my husband’s and sometimes my daddy’s) money to buy me some peanut buttery goodness. But, I must share with you.
See, I love anything peanut butter and chocolate. I think it’s the essential mixing of the two most perfectly paired foods on earth. Not to be dramatic or anything. Coz ya’ll know I never exaggerate
So, the other day I was in the store, perusing the peanut butter aisle (which sadly is not an irregular state of affairs for me – which might explain why my husband always brings reading material when I drag him to buy groceries) and saw that Peanut Butter & Co. makes a Might Maple flavor that – in essence – is peanut butter mixed with maple syrup.
I totally fell for it. Bought it. Ran home thinking of all the yummy things I was going to make with it. (Let’s be honest, it’s more of a waddle than a run – and I’m just fine with that for now.) Okay, so I’ve made myself a few PB&J sandwiches; but, mostly, I’ve been eating it by the spoonful.
It is amazing. It’s creamy for sure. But, it’s also a little bit gritty – and I mean that in a good way. Food is nothing without texture. It’s got that awesome salty PB flavor (DUH!) but with a delicious sweet maple undertone. Seriously delish.
So it turns out that this company has a bazillion and a half (ok 10?) different flavors of peanut butter. My store doesn’t carry them all. And, truthfully, they are a little expensive. But, I’m telling you – next time you see them on sale – buy them. So far I can only attest to the peanut buttery deliciousness of the Dark Chocolate Dreams and Mighty Maple flavors.
But here’s the deal, you can go ahead and lick the spoon or make yourself a slightly sophisticated version of a PB&J sandwich. Or, you can substitute these awesomely flavored peanut butters into your favorite PB recipes. No one will be expecting it — and that my friends is culinary genius.
