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 .
If you love raisins, peanut butter & pumpkin, give these products a try!
