Tastes gross by itself, but may be saving my waistline
13 July 2018
I bought this because I LOVE peanut butter but am terrible for having spoonfuls of it out of the jar. Figured if it's in powder form then I won't be compulsively digging into it, and the added bonus is I can legitimately have a slice of thickly spread peanut butter on toast as a snack without it being such a massive calorie bomb. I am happy on both of those fronts - no more compulsive spoonfuls and of course it is lower in calories. However, probably the main reason I won't have it by the spoonful is because, by itself, I think it tastes absolutely revolting. I'm sure it is an acquired taste, however I have yet to acquire it! Clearly the thing that makes peanut butter so yummy is the fat, rather than the protein. ;-) And - as we all know - low fat versions of products will often have tonnes of sugar or sweetener added to make up for the loss in taste. Luckily, PB2 does not, however I've found that I either need to stir in some Splenda or have it with jam on top in order to tolerate the taste. But at least the jar is lasting a long time.....!
