PB PB spread

Whoa.

I mentioned I was in a “nut rut” last week, and it’s only been increasing thanks to this new kind of peanut butter.

Pacific Beach Peanut Butter offered to send me some samples and I figured it would be the perfect thing to greet me as I arrived in Nor Cal.  The timing was awesome and I had a lovely package (with the 3 nut butters you see above) waiting for me after the long drive up the I-5.

Let me tell you.  When you can’t be bothered to put together a “real” meal because your kitchen is a total disaster scene and you have no clue which boxes have useful things (like pots and pans) and which have non-essentials (like mini urns for oil and vinegar from Spain), it’s really helpful to have jars of PB on hand.

Actually, it’s ALWAYS good to have jars of this deliciousness on hand.  Right?  I gave the cinnayum flavor a try first because it’s one of their most popular varieties.

I’m in love.  Unlike most natural peanut butters, this didn’t have the oil and nut separation issue.  It’s not fully smooth, so it has a slight crunch, without being totally chunky.  And it was soft and totally spreadable (didn’t even need the help of microwaving like they suggest).  I think warming it would have sent me into full on attack mode with my spoon.  Given how long this move-in process is taking, it’s a miracle there’s any left to be honest.

When I put it on toast it tasted just like cinnamon toast crunch cereal.  Ummm, yeah.  Do I need to say more?

I’m really excited to give the OG flavor (organic Valencia) a try next.  I’m going to use it in a peanut dressing.  That nutty salad rut is still going strong!

I think I have a Thai themed kale salad in my future.

Oh and BTW.  If you guys want to get your own PB hook up, you can get ONE FREE JAR with the  purchase of any two from their website using the code blogger4 (valid through May 16, 2013, limit 1 FREE jar per customer).  Kinda awesome.

*Edited to add [for those having issues with the code]*

From the PB rep “They should have at least 3 items in their cart. The coupon is for buy 2 get 1, so they would need to add all three jars in the cart including the free one, then the coupon will take the third jar off the total. I just went into the site and it worked for me.”

    yum I’m always excited by new nut butters!
    And I think it’s hysterical that your page background has turned into tequila city…

    LOVE PB PB! they sell at my local farmers market and i have to limit how much I buy bc i have a tendency to attack the jar with a spoon throughout the week. It seriously tastes like candy.

    Yea mine shows an ad for Souza Tequila, complete with a beach scene. Fairly certain that wouldn’t mix well with this delish looking peanut butter :)

    I LOVE PB & was excited to order this, but the code didn’t work for me either.

    Wait where on the site do you see it? I don’t have anything like that when I load the page…

    Above your header and on the left and right hand sides (where the purple usually is). It goes away when I click on the post.

    ok, I just added a comment from the PB rep on the post. She said “They should have at least 3 items in their cart. The coupon is for buy 2 get 1, so they would need to add all three jars in the cart including the free one, then the coupon will take the third jar off the total. I just went into the site and it worked for me.”

    Let me know if you try it and still can’t get it to work though!

    thanks meg! i just saw it – it is going in and out!?! so weird. im trying to sort it out now. ugh. i hate tech stuff :(

  11. Meg D

    Yea I think so – it wasn’t there just now. It doesn’t interfere with posts just kind of pops up on the sides.

    I LOVE the original & unsalted PB Peanut Butter – and I live in PB so it doesn’t get more local than that! But, I wanted to flag that none of their other flavors are vegan – I discovered this when I was sampling at the Farmer’s Market and on a whim asked if the CinnaYum was vegan. Lucky I asked because all the flavors (except original/unsalted) contain dairy (I’ve also noticed some contain hydrogenated oil :( Just a heads up for those who are vegan and/or dairy intolerant.

    Yea it’s only when your on the home page the tequila ad takes up the whole background but once you click on a specific post it goes to the normal purple

    this is not helping me getting rid of my pb addiction.. hungry again.. must resist… aaaah, too late.
    peanubutter with cinnamon? mmm, i should give that a try. we also have pb with (madamme jeanette-) pepper (originally from suriname), although that’s more for sauces and soups. doesn’t taste well on a sandwich.

    Cinnamon toast crunch?! Are you kidding me?? I used to be obsessed with that cereal–YUM!

    Hi Elise,

    Cinnamon sounds awesome… too bad none of the flavored versions are vegan (they all contain dairy). Still, inspired me to add some cinnamon to my next PB sandwich! :-)

    Thanks,
    Amanda

    Thank you – it worked. Something must have been wrong because I had the same 3 in my cart yesterday as I did today. BTW…your baby is beautiful & I love his nickname!

    NP. My company sells preparedness kits and supplies and I am always on the lookout for longer shelf life items that minimize allergens. Nut allergies are way too common and many people can’t tolerate the wheat/gluten in traditional emergency food bars. Wowbutter does a good job of covering these issues, unless someone is allergic to Soy. :-(
