I have a solution.
My name is Maggie and I have a peanut butter addiction. I love it so much that I will often consume up to 4-5 tablespoons a day. This is problematic when peanut butter is spreading salmonella across the country. I saw this new product at Trader Joe’s during this week’s grocery trip, and I picked it up in the hopes that I had found a passable substitute.
Not only is this product salmonella free, it only has 100 calories and 2.5 grams of fat per 2 tablespoon serving!
Better ‘n Peanut Butter: Original flavor.
Verdict: I love it. It tastes just like Jif & Skippy, but in a much healthier way! I think it probably tastes similar to Barney Butter (but I still haven’t tried Barney Butter, so I’m not positive – I know; I should get on that). I don’t think I’ll be tempted to dip in for spoonful after spoonful of this stuff because it doesn’t have that addicting savory quality that natural PB has, but it definitely delivers deliciousness and tastes great in a sandwich.
I would highly recommend this product for anyone who likes peanut butter. Especially for people that like sweetened nut butters, and for those of us that can’t seem to put the spoon down after one taste. It was just really good – and so creamy. There wasn’t even any oil to mix in (though I guess this is the case with all nut butters that aren’t the purely natural kind?).
No, Better’n Peanut Butter did not pay me to endorse their product. I just like it so much that I wanted to share it with my readers. But if they want to send some freebies my way I certainly wouldn’t mind!
Here are some of the other things I’ve been eating recently. A light breakfast…
- 1 large cooked apple (the raw ones have been giving me tummy problems)
- 1/2 cup TJ’s high fiber cereal
- 1/2 cup full fat plain yogurt
- 1-2 tablespoons strawberry maple syrup drizzled on top
- green tea (chilled)
And a lunch sandwich…
- 2 slices whole wheat bread
- 1 sliced persimmon
- 2 tablespoons Better’n Peanut Butter
Holy freaking yum! Have you tried Better’n Peanut Butter?
