PB Crave Review and Giveaway

I have always been the type of person that has no problem saying no to chocolate. My weakness? Peanut Butter! I absolutely love the stuff and can not pass it up. So, when I heard of PB Crave and their flavored peanut butters, I knew I had to try them. They are all natural, cholesterol free and gluten free. They contain no hydrogenated oil, no trans fat and do not require refrigeration. They make four different flavors:

*Choco Choco- A delicious double dose of semi-sweet and rich dark chocolate with premium peanut butter and wild honey — it's decadence and delight in every bite.  
*CoCo Bananas- A tropical blend of yummy bananas, cocoa and wild honey, this peanut butter adds a taste of island paradise to any kitchen. 
*Razzle Dazzle- A twisted blend of red raspberry, wild honey, cool white chocolate and rich dreamy darkness — this peanut butter offers a magical mix of deliciousness.
*Cookie Nookie- A mouth-watering mix of chocolate chips, cookie dough flavor, wild honey and premium peanut butter — it’s two classics together as one.

Don't they sound delicious? They taste even better! Within the first 15 minutes of the PB Crave flavors arriving in my home, I had tasted them all. I told you, I can't resist! They all taste delicious by themselves, but my brain instantly started thinking of amazing things to do with these peanut butters. I can dip fruit in them, make the best pb and j ever...without the jelly, put it in my oatmeal, on my waffles, on my ice cream, etc. 

At the top of my list was an "Elvis" with CoCo Bananas. If you have never heard of or tried and Elvis you are missing out! An Elvis is basically peanut butter with banana slices on bread and then buttered and fried in a skillet (like a grilled cheese). The Elvis is one of my all time favorite sandwiches. In case you are wondering, it is named after Elvis because it was his favorite sandwich (not sure if he invented it or not). I made an Elvis for lunch the day I received PB Crave:

the ingredients

spread the peanut butter on one side of the bread and top with sliced bananas

butter and fry in a skillet over medium/high heat

Yum! Now Enjoy.

As I suspected, CoCo Bananas made the BEST ELVIS ever! Actually you could probably skip the bananas since the banana flavor is so prominent in CoCo Bananas. This flavor is delicious and I will definitely be eating more CoCo Bananas Elvis sandwiches.

Next I tried the Cookie Nookie in a peanut butter cookie recipe. I found a simple recipe because I was running low on ingredients. I used this recipe and halfed it:

3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar splenda (you could use 1 cup total sugar instead)
1 cup peanut butter
1 egg

These were incredible! They taste like a mixture of peanut butter cookies and chocolate chip cookies. They were so good. I can't wait to try Cookie Nookie with a better peanut butter recipe. 

I haven't had a chance yet to try the Razzle Dazzle or Choco Choco in any recipes. I have been eating them with fruit though. The Razzle Dazzle has an amazing Raspberry flavor. It is so delicious. I am hoping to use it in a fudge recipe soon. Choco Choco has a chocolate flavor to it and would be insane in any peanut butter/ chocolate recipe (buckeyes or peanut butter cups would be great).

All four flavors are great with fruit or in oatmeal. You can use them anywhere you would use regular peanut butter and more. I honestly can not choose my favorite flavor. They are all so delicious. Just when you think they couldn't get any better, they do. For every jar of peanut butter that is sold at least 2% of the profits go to Project Peanut Butter, a non-profit organization focused on treating malnourished children. I love companies that give back! Visit PB Crave today to pick up some amazing flavored peanut butter.
