PB2: The Next Generation...

So... 

I ordered something amazing.

Mmmmm.

Over the past few months...

I've been seeing this certain product float around all over the internet (especially amongst healthy food bloggers), so...

I decided it was time to try some out myself! (And I'm super happy I did!)

To be quite honest...

I very seldom order things online!

Although this week...

I broke my personal record since I bought...

Not 1 but 4 things! (O.M.G. I know right?! lol)

I ended up purchasing:

  • 3 jars of this product; and
  • A Goldendoodle Book! (Yes, you read right! I'm going to learn all about Teddy's Breed!)

How could I resist?!

So what exactly did I order that is so yum?

Are you ready?!

Two types of healthy-fiedultra low in calorie and low in fat all natural Peanut Butter! (Yuppers!)


I think it goes without saying...

I couldn't wait to give it a try!!! 

I mean...

It could have the potential of  replacing some of my old friends! (Well, not completely replace...we do have a long-standing relationship! lol)


Either way...

I was happy two days was all it took for my shipment to arrive! (PB via mail is some serious business!)

It's like a gift box only unwrapped.

Once I got to the opening of the box...

I took my time so as not to damage the goods!

Oooohhhh. Aaaahhhh.

I also took another glance at the nutritional info...

I realize you can't read the small print ;)

The calories, fat, and sugars weren't comparable to my regular 'peanut spread'! 


Next (and obviously)...

I tested it out!

My test PB bowl.

I took a good sniff before scooping out two tablespoons worth (one serving)...

It smelled super Peanuty!
(Duh...It's made with peanuts lol)

And then...

I added 1 tablespoon of water to the peanut powder! (Or to your desired thickness)


What I got was...

A thick and creamy-like Peanut Butter spread! (Magic right before my eyes!)

I ate half of it before taking the picture!
Did I mention there was 1 gram of fat per serving?!

Don't feel like you got a good enough look at this yummy peanut spread?! (I don't blame you!)

Here are some better shots of the mixed PB2 goodness (I didn't touch it prior to photographing it lol)...

Badabing.
Badaboommmm.
Yum.

My overall opinion/analysis:


So I think it goes without saying....

I really enjoyed PB2! 

Let's just say...

I can't wait to try spreading and mixing  PB2 on and in these favourite eats of mine (not all in the same day of course! Everything in moderation!) :

  • Protein Pancakes (done and really yum!);
Berry Protein Pancakes with PB2 Spread.
PB2 Greek Yogurt Bowl.
So good.
I added 1 pack of Vanilla Stevia for added sweetness.
Obviously I mixed it all together and
didn't leave it powdery as seen above ;)

**What's also good is if you mix together the PB2 spread in the Greek Yogurt Bowl as opposed to simply adding the powder. Both ways are really yum!**

I will also attempt to make:

  • Peanut Chicken; 
  • Peanut Sauce for dipping; and (not limited to)
  • Protein Peanut Butter Cookies! (Actually, I already did that too lol)

Recipe coming soon! :)

So if you're finding yourself wiping your mouth clean of drool or if you're a PB Lover (like me!)...

I suggest you give it a try! (You may enjoy it too!)

**Disclaimer: I was not compensated for this post nor was I asked to write a product review. I simply found the PB2 online, ordered it and decided to share it with you after giving it a taste! It's something I just had to share! I mean, WE ARE talking about Peanut Butter here! These thoughts are mine and mine alone.**

  1. I like PB2 but I tend to stick with plain old peanut flour because I often put a 1/4cup in my oats or smoothie and PB2 has a little too much sodium for me to have that much of it. I'm glad you discovered it though! You can never have too many PB options!

    1. I've never tried peanut flour before!Tx for sharing. And no, there are never too many PB options! Ever ;)

  2. I have tried it and find it all right for baking and IN things, but not great just as a spread. Curious, as I think you are also in Canada, did you pay duty, etc. on your order or did you find a Canadian source?

    That dog is so adorable. I love that picture and also looooove golden doodles. I already told you that! :)

    1. I really enjoyed it both as spread and in my baking! I was pleasantly surprised! It works for me! WoO hoO!

      I got it at a supplement store in town called Fitshop (yes, I'm from Canada). I could have gone to the actual store itself after I saw where it was shipped it from! Ah well, next time! lol

      Goldendoodles are gorgeous. Teddy is just way too cute to even describe. Have I said Teddy is cute yet?! ;)

  4. wow that seems unbelievable. I have to order some now. I might not use it instead of PB say on toast, but for anything where it's a mix-in I'd gladly trade it out.

    1. Regular PB on toast is pretty well irreplaceable! Childhood food stamp!

      PB2 is a great alternative/additive to many things though! I'm super happy I gave it a try! Yum!

    1. After seeing it everywhere on the internet, I thought it was time to get on the PB2 bandwagon! I'm glad I did! Both are yum, I like the original better (or both mixed together!) So nom!
