Did you know that November is Peanut Butter Lovers Month? No, neither did I until a few weeks ago!
How this very important fact escaped my radar is beyond me as peanut butter really is one of my favourite things in life. When we went to the USA last year, I was delighted to discover that Americans seem to have peanut butter everything. Heck, I even sampled a peanut butter milkshake from Shake Shack on my wedding day! #stayclassy
The folks over at Innovative Bites kindly sent me a ‘peanut butter bundle’ and it made my year. Seriously, opening a humble cardboard box at work to discover an abundance of peanut butter confectionery inside made me happier than you can possibly imagine.
Peanut Butter and Chocolate Twinkies
Yes, you heard me right – Peanut butter Twinkies! (Fellow Zombieland fans may relate to the fact that Twinkies instantly remind me of Tallahassee shouting: “Where are you, you spongy, yellow, delicious…..!”)
These Twinkies are essentially chocolate flavoured cake filled with peanut butter frosting. They also somehow manage to have the perfect sweet and slightly salty balance and the sponge was surprisingly moist for a pre-packed product with a lovely, light peanut butter frosting. I’m pretty sure these babies will be a regular treat for our household in the future!
They are currently available in the UK from Asda (RRP £5.50 for a box of 10).
Chocolate Buddy Strawberry & Peanut Butter Filled Cups / Chocolate Buddy Grape & Peanut Butter Filled Cups
The concept of combined peanut butter and ‘jelly’ is not something that’s very common in the UK…yet. I wasn’t really sure what to expect but these worked perfectly. The thin layer of strawberry and grape sauce (respectively) gave an extra level of flavour to the cups and were very moreish!
Chocolate Buddy Crunchy Peanut Butter Filled Cups / Chocolate Buddy Smooth Peanut Butter Filled Cups
I have tried
various many, many different brands of peanut butter cups over the years. I’d even go so far as to say that I’m a little bit of an expert by now. I liked the crunchy texture of the…crunchy ones (I really have no other word to describe them!) and the chocolate casing was nice and creamy.
Chocolate Buddy Peanut Butter Bar
A 100g ‘bar’ featuring eight individually wrapped miniature chocolate and peanut butter sticks. Great for office snacking with your colleagues, popping a few sticks in your bag for when the peanut butter urge hits or simply enjoying all by yourself on a Saturday night (the last one may be my personal suggestion…).
