This creation literally jumped right out of my dreams. Chocolate and peanut butter, my two favorite foods, together in one jar!
I first heard about Peanut Butter & Co. from reading Bekah@BeekEats! blog. I figured that if Bekah liked it, it had to be good. And good it was (I finished the jar within about a week and half!).
It tastes exactly like it sounds, a mixture of peanut butter and chocolate, although it’s a little more on the peanut-buttery side. I have to admit, I was a little disappointed with how it fared on bananas. I thought my all time favorite snack, banana and peanut butter, would benefit from adding another supreme ingredient, chocolate. But I found that I’d rather just stick to plain ol’ peanut butter on my bananas. The Chocolate Dreams didn’t have a strong enough taste in either direction, chocolate or peanut butter, to stand up against the banana.
In fact, I found that my favorite way to eat Peanut Butter & Co.’s Dark Chocolate Dreams is straight out of the jar! I could definitely munch on more than 2 Tbsp (the serving size) in one sitting. However, I also found it to be quite tasty on apples after warmed up in the microwave. Warm up this dream team and it’s hard to resist! It takes just 20 seconds in the microwave. Warm Dark Chocolate Dreams is also a perfect frozen yogurt/ice cream topper. It’s similar to hot fudge, but with a nutty kick and some added protein.
I could also imagine this would be good in oatmeal, given oatmeal’s bland taste. However, I try not to start my day off with chocolate, as I end up eating enough of it throughout the remainder of the day! I wouldn’t pair the Chocolate Dreams with anything that has a particularly strong taste because it would overshadow the subtle chocolate hints within this nut butter.
Peanut Butter & Co.’s Dark Chocolate Dreams is a bit pricy in terms of nut butter, but it’s worth the occasional splurge. My overall verdict: I’d rather eat a Reese’s than a spoonful of Dark Chocolate Dreams, but it’s definitely tasty enough to be more than addicting.
