My OBSESSION! Peanut Butter!

For this post, I can’t even say “My Favorite Thing: Peanut Butter“.  Peanut butter goes beyond being a “favorite” and is practically an obsession.  I pretty much dream about swimming in a pool of peanut butter.  And I have to put it out there: Why does chocolate and peanut butter marry so well together?  They are a perfect pair!

So, with that, I must dedicate this post to all of the peanut butter out there.  But this is a time for YOU to tell me what kinds of peanut butter you like, as well as you favorite peanut butter dessert/snack/bar/treat, etc.

Since I have been blogging, I have seen sooo many people eat peanut butter by the spoonfuls (which I so admire), but it isn’t just your regular Jif!  I’ve seen a lot of flavored pb’s, as well as a lot of nut butters, too!  But for me, I haven’t quite yet forsaken the goddess of peanut butter:  Good ol’ Jif!

Can’t go wrong with the good ol’ Jif!

Extra Crunchy Jif, has won my heart!

Here are some of the fancy-schmancy peanut butters I have seen out in the blogging world.  I’m willing to try, but need to know which ones are the BEST!

This one sounds super delicious!  And it seems quite popular, too!  I can’t wait to get my hands on this one!  I hear you can get it at Target!

Peanut Butter & Co. White Chocolate

And WHY, oh why haven’t I tried this PB/Chocolately goodness yet?

Chocolate + PB= Heaven

Tried any of the PB & Co. peanut butters?  Thoughts?

I’ve also seen a lot of Nut Butters.  Haven’t tried any, because I want to hear YOUR thoughts before doing so.  Do they do the Peanut Butter justice?  Does it taste like pb or differently?

Nut Butter- Almond Butter

What’s your favorite nut butter?

Another LOVE of peanut butter:

Or you can go the {powdered route}.  PB2 and FitNutz have revolutionized the world of peanut butter.  I love BOTH.  Both reduce the calories by a TON, so you can essentially eat more!  Whoo hoo.  I love using my powdered peanut butter in my protein shakes.  It adds the perfect taste of pb, without all the extra calories.  A plus?  It makes the consistency amaaaazing!

You can order Fit Nutz here, and PB2 here.  The options are {endless}!

Have you tried any powdered peanut butters?  Which do you prefer?  Favorite way to use it?

My favorite Peanut Butter blogs, where I drool just looking at their blog name:

Those should keep you busy for a while!  Enjoy!

Wow, now I’m seriously craving a heaping tablespoon of PB!  It’s calling out my name.  TOOOO bad I work in a NUT FREE school :( :( :(.

  1. ohhh good i thought I was the only one…i would never leave jif…i’ve tried almost every almond butter ever made and it does nothing for me. Then one day my mom made me toast and I accidentally fell in love with Skippy natural…its seriously amazing and that is coming from a jif pb fanatic too.

  2. Hey Michelle! Thanks for the comment. I love that you “accidentally” fell in love, haha. I know how that is… You don’t want to turn on Jif purposely… so I guess it’d only happen if you didn’t know you were eating another type. :) Hmm… I’ll have to try it. I’m all for “natural”!

  3. oh la la, this post warms my SOUL :) p.s. I’m reading this while eating a yogurt mess topped with naturally nutty PB.. how appropriate :)

    favorite peanut butter?! oooooph! that’s like a mother chooding her favorite child! I am in LOVE with naturally more, pbandco, and justin’s nut butters. So.stinkin’.fab!

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog, girlie!!! Any fellow PB lover is a friend o’ mine :)

    • Yummmmy! Sounds delicious! I love yogurt messes! Thanks for the suggestion of the pb’s. I gottttta try something other than Jif, and see what the rest of the world is talking about! Thanks for stopping by. Glad I have a new pb friend ♥

  4. I prefer fitnutz in everything….A lot more peanut butter taste for the calories, however, I am for sure going to have to try that chocolate PB soon…Looks like another trip to Whole Foods is in our near future…and dont forget the PB POWS! :)

  5. There are very few peanut butters that I haven’t tried! As for those ones above:

    PB2 – good stuff, better than Fitnutz in my mind, although I like the variety of Fitnutz. I don’t use these peanut powders to make “peanut butter” with water, I use it to thicken smoothies (ice cream), sauces, etc..

    PB&Co White Choc – White chocolate is too sweet for me and this flavor is a bit much as well. Good for dessert though but you really need something to cut the sweetness.

    PB&Co Dark Choc – This is a great flavor. Very rich and creamy. I must admit that I’m a dark chocolate snob so personally Id want it a bit “darker” tasting but it’s definitely a treat! However, you can easily make it, I have a recipe on my website.

    Justin’s Almond Butter – It tastes exactly like what it sounds, ground almonds. No salt, no sugar. Not really my cup of tea. They do make a maple flavored almond butter that is delicious! It’s perfectly sweetened and the maple flavor compliments the almonds nicely.

    As for any others, you can find all my reviews at: http://peanutbutterboy.com/category/reviews or you can search my site for any brand/variety/flavor you’re thinking of.

    PS – speaking of Whole Foods – their brand peanut butter is my current favorite. It’s the cheapest brand out there and one of the best. 365 Creamy and 365 Crunchy. The only ingredients are peanuts and salt. Perfect texture, flavor and salt level!

  6. I have to have some pb in my day every day. I like Skippy Natural w/ Honey and the PB & Co. White Chocolate kinds the best.

  7. Hi Emily!

    Thanks so much for linking to my blog! Nick (a.k.a. Peanut Butter Boy) is indeed the PB King, and I agree with most of his recommendations. The 365 brand is fantastic, and that little bit of added salt really makes a difference. I also like Sunland, Smuckers, and Jif’s natural peanut butters.

    FYI, I make a line of granola that currently sells in Whole Foods in various cities, and our newest flavor is Berry Yummy PB&J, based on (what else?) a PB&J sandwich. Thought you’d be interested as a fellow peanut butter lover. Check it out: http://julieannes.foodzie.com/julie-anne-s-berry-yummy-pbandj-granola.html#bakery/granola

    • Wow Julie! That granola seems amaaazing! I’ll have to see if my whole foods carries it! Congratulations on an amazing business venture! Thanks so much for the pb recommendations!! I can’t wait to try the 365 brand… heard amazing things about it!!

  8. I bought some PB & Co. Dark Chocolate Dreams not even 3 days ago and that container is practically gone. I use it on bagel thins, oatmeal, waffles, bananas, and also just eating a spoonful of it! I loved this post. I just told your sister on her post that anything with peanut butter and chocolate is at the top of my list!

    • ohhhhh sounds delish!! i honestly have been so excited and anxious to get to the store to pick some up! can i get it at target?? thanks for checkin out this post… i practically dream about pb & chocolate!

  9. I’m actually not sure if you can get it at Target. I got mine from Super Wal-mart. They just started selling. They also sell it in the mini snack packets as well.
