    Estoy Loco por esta Crema de cacahuate

    Did you get that?  It says “I am crazy for this peanut butter”!  For months I have read about P.B.Loco on many blogs, but never could find any in my local stores.  Sure, I could have ordered it online, but I really try to avoid shipping charges at any cost.  I waited patiently.  Good things come to those who wait.  :)  While on vacation last week in Sunset Beach, NC, we traveled South (my Mom & I) to Myrtle Beach for a day full of shopping & lunch out.  We hit up a store called   “The Peanut Shop“.  I love all things nuts, so I figured that I couldn’t go wrong in that store!  LOL!  I was purchasing some gifts (I can’t share yet) and overheard this woman saying something about chocolate chip cookie dough peanut butter.  My little ears perked right up and I made a beeline right over to where these nice ladies were.  Imagine my surprise when there was a nice display rack of P.B.Loco jars sitting there!  I almost squealed!  Okay, maybe I did a little bit.  I quickly grabbed the Dark Chocolate Duo, as it was the only one they had!  Hands off my dark chocolate, people!  ;)  Next I snagged a Sumatra Cinnamon Raisin and a Jungle Banana.  The only other kind they had that day was the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.  I wasn’t sure if that variety was gluten-free, so I left it behind.  Later I saw that all 3 jars that I did pick up had “Gluten-Free” written on the side.  I wish I would have looked closer at the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough!  My Mom could do nothing but giggle at me.

    Fast forward to this morning.  Yes, I still have other nut butters open in my pantry, but had to open the Sumatra Cinnamon.  I couldn’t wait any longer.  I spread this delicacy on my brown rice cake (lots of raisins!).  I topped with Trader Joe’s Pumpkin butter.  If that was not just a little party in my mouth!!  OH.MY.GOSH!  Yes, I know those flavors say “Fall” more than “Summer”, but I don’t care.  My mouth doesn’t care.  This was an amazing combo.  This peanut butter is one of the most unique nut butters that I have tried.  A definite must purchase again product!

    Now, onto the other new love of my life (my first love, other than my dear husband, is Barney Butter) is Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Butter.  I picked this up on the spur of the moment when I had won a gift card to Trader Joe’s.  It has been in my fridge, unopened, for about a month.  I thought today would be the perfect time to give it a try.  Another win!!  Wow!!  Perfect pumpkin flavor for the pumpkin freak that I am .
