Before being involved with blogging, I was always deathly afraid of nut butters because of the calories and fat content. I was never really particular with my nut butters, I just get whatever was on sale. Usually, ONE jar of nut butter will last me a whole year and it expires on me before I would ever hit the bottom of the jar. Now, after seeing how all of you guys enjoy nut butters almost on a daily basis with a healthy and active lifestyle, I have fallen in love with nut butters all over again. Can’t imagine my life without it. Nut butters, especially peanut butter goes with everything. The healthy fats makes me fuller longer. There are so many different awesome dessert-like peanut butter on the market right now. P.B Loco has an wide selection of DELICIOUS and CREAMY peanut butters. So happy I got to try out 2 of their most popular flavors.
Coco Banana: Super creamy and easily spreadable. Love it to death. Both the banana and chocolate flavors were present and they complemented each other really well. Chocolate banana in a jar. Taste tested with a spoon and then made an Fitnestess’s famous oatmeal cookie with it and the results were AMAZING!! A wonderful chocolate banana oatmeal breakfast cookie which was super peanut buttery (I added some PB2 to it too). I just love this combination because whenever there is peanut butter, there is usually bananas so this peanut butter is just perfect for me. P.B Loco smoothie here I come!!

White Chocolate Raspberry: OMG, this is a delicious dessert peanut butter. I am not usually a fan of white chocolate (I find it too sweet), but this tasted amazing. Perfect blend of white chocolate and raspberry flavor. In the morning, I like to spread this on my Kashi waffles with sliced bananas and at night, I like to spread some on my vitatops. Wicked combination!!

I love the creamy and spreadable texture of P.B Loco. They offer amazing flavor that I want to try them all out. I call these my “dessert” peanut butters because they instantly turn all my foods into desserts. When you have a jar of P.B Loco in hand, you can turn anything that is lack luster and bland into delicious drool worthy food. Best of all, these do not need to be refrigerated, but also contains no hydrogenated oils. P.B Loco has the most interesting flavors in like PB with Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, PB with Caramel Apple AND PB with Asian Curry Spices? I wonder what a curry pb would taste like.
