Peanut butter is one of those things that I could eat morning, noon and night. I even keep a jar at work for those afternoon munchies. (I eat it on everything.) And as content as I was with plain or crunchy for these thirty-some years of my life, I am now hooked on the flavored versions as well. Here are two of my favs:
Peanut Butter & Co. makes a really good dark chocolate flavor that will make you forget all about Nutella. They are a little sandwich shop in NYC that makes a variety of gourmet peanut butter flavors that are easy to find in most major markets. You can check out their site for a store near you and see the list of other yummy flavors such as Mighty Maple, White Chocolate, Honey and more. They have some great recipes online too.
My other new favorite is made by P.B. Loco, a company specializing in what they call "peanut butter for adults", with flavors ranging from Asian Curry, Cocoa Banana, Cookie Dough and many more. Their Sumatra Cinnamon Raisin version is unbelievable. Sounds kind of weird, I know, but picture cinnamon raisin bread toasted with peanut butter and you get the idea. Sooo good. Best of all, both brands are all natural. Please bring me a spoon.
