Good for You Goodies:PB2

The Good for You Goodie: PB2

The Company: Bell Plantation

The Chew Review: You could definitely call me a peanut butter girl. I prefer it in a old plain-Jane peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and have childhood memories filled with Smucker’s Uncrustables or my other infamous Doritos and peanut butter sandwich—honestly try it if you haven’t! It’s one of those combos that sounds disgusting, but it weirdly amazing! So when I first saw the new “powdered” peanut butter buzzing around the blog world(and getting rave reviews), I knew I had to feature it in the Good for you Goodies segment. Both PB2 and Fitnutz specialize in creating this powdered peanut butter that is made by squeezing out the oil from the peanuts and what remains is the powdered peanut butter in your jar with a stunning 85% less fat than standard peanut butter. So how do you eat a powdered peanut butter you ask? You simply mix 2 Tbsp with 1 Tbsp of water and as you stir it magically turns into a creamy peanut butter spread with a dreamy peanut scent! And the ingredients—only 3: roasted peanuts, salt and sugar. Don’t you just love knowing the actual source of the ingredients on a food you eat, rather than some long foreign looking list? I sure do! So scroll down for my chew..

CIMG0166  So I measured out the amount I wanted to use mixed the recommended amount of water into it. It was soo easy to stir and the ingredients incorporated very quickly. About 5 seconds later, I had your every day creamy peanut butter. Now for the test.

Of course it had to makes its’ debut on a peanut butter and jelly sandwich! It was unbelievable! Would it be safe to say that this could give Jiffy or Skippy a run for their money? I would be willing to bet on it. Not a slight difference whatsoever to a “regular” peanut butter. And guess what people….!

It comes in chocolate form too! Holy smokes Yummy, this took my standard PB and Banana sandwich to a whole new level. I definitely suggest stocking your shelves with this ASAP. You can even head to their website and order a sample pack for $3.99 before deciding to buy more. If you don’t want to buy in bulk, I suggest going to Netrition where you can buy it for just $3.99/jar. I will soon be doing a taste test of FitNutz powdered peanut butter also; theirs comes in chunky! So keep your eyes peeled for that. See ya tomorrow!

This looks awful, really, why wouldn't you just eat some delicious peanut butter? All natural, yummy peanut butter? Or almond butter, or anything but powder? -e
