Newest Favorite Snack

Have you seen this???????

I saw this a few weeks ago at Target when I went to grab our regular peanut butter of choice, Jif.  This snazzy little item was on the top shelf and just screamed....."Try me"!  White chocolate AND peanut butter....UMMMM, YES!

I went to their website, http://www.ilovepeanutbutter.com/ to find out more.  This is what the website has to say about the product:  Our all-natural peanut butter blended with sweet white chocolate. More than just a sandwich spread, it is fantastic on fruit, spooned over ice cream, when used as an ingredient in baked goods, or simply eaten out of the jar! It contains no cholesterol, no trans fats, no hydrogenated oils, and no high-fructose corn syrup. It is also gluten-free, certified vegan, and certified kosher pareve by the Orthodox Union. The shelf life is 6 months after opening, if stored in a cool, dry place.


When I compared it to our regular Jif peanut butter, it actually has 10 less calories, 2 less grams of total fat, only 35 mg of sodium compared to 150 mg, 4g more carbs, 1g less of fiber, 1g less protein and 5g more of sugars.  So, it depends on what you are watching in your diet, but they are frankly quite equal except for the sodium. 



I tried it with apples for a snack and OH. MY. GOODNESS.  It hit the spot!  I tried them with my current apple of choice, the honeycrisp.  But, unfortunately, the honeycrisp will soon be gone and I will have to go back to my granny smith apples.  But, I think the tart and the sweet will still be an awesome combo.  It may not be the healthiest snack choice, but hey, I AM eating a whole apple.  That's gotta be good for something.  It fills me up and I enjoy it.  What can be better?

The White Chocolate Wonderful was a little pricey at $3.59, but if it is a once-in-a-while snack, I think it is ok.  You can pay that same price for a bag of Lays chips and they will be gone in a wink!  If White Chocolate isn't your thing, Peanut Butter & Co also offers Dark Chocolate Dreams, Cinnamon Raisin Swirl, Mighty Maple, and a host of other choices.  Check them out at http://www.ilovepeanutbutter.com/.

What do you like to eat with your apples?????
