That's what "This peanut butter is delicious" sounds like, when your mouth is full of peanut butter. :)
My very dear friend Maria and I used to work together. For over seven years we shared responsibilities and we always joked that we "shared a brain" because one of us was able to pick up where the other left off, and we almost always thought alike. Well, this Christmas was one of those shared-brain moments because we unknowingly gave each other the magical gift of peanut butter.
My gift from Maria took the form of a membership in (I love these words together!) the Peanut Butter of the Month Club, and my first shipment arrived yesterday. Woohoo!
On the right is the white chocolate raspberry flavor of PB Loco (I gave Maria their Mocha Espresso flavor, to which I am seriously addicted). It has teeny tiny morsels of good white chocolate distributed throughout, and each mouthful carries a faint berry hint that you can't see or feel but you definitely taste. I give this peanut butter 4 stars out of 5!
Although they started out in Minnesota, PB Loco now has peanut butter cafes (!!) in several states. Last summer my mom and I dined at the one in Scottsdale, Arizona. She had a sandwich that was basically a BLT with sun dried tomato flavored peanut butter, and I enjoyed a sandwich of cinnamon raisin peanut butter and cream cheese layered with thinly sliced Granny Smith apple. And a big carton of milk!
On the left is Sunland Banana Peanut Butter Spread. Normally I am terrified of anything "banana flavored" because, let's face it, it rarely turns out to have a happy ending (case in point: the Elvis edition Reese's PB Cups!). But this stuff is pretty good. I think it might have actual banana in it. It is, however, a "spread" as opposed to true peanut butter -- it feels too loose or something -- so although it tastes pretty good I must dock it half a star on that technicality, so it gets 3 stars.
Fun Fact: Sunland is the only peanut butter company in the entire state of New Mexico!
