Peanut butter fans, this one’s for you! Ever thought of mixing pure organic peanut butter with the health benefits of coconut oil? Me neither, but Tropical Traditions has. I have been sampling a jar of this unique twist on an old favorite, and here’s the scoop!
I thought the coconut peanut butter might be overwhelmingly “coconutty”, but it’s not – it’s a subtle addition to a familiar flavor. The texture is different than regular peanut butter, too. Because of the addition of the coconut oil which is solid when cool and liquid when slightly warm, the cooled texture of this coconut peanut butter reminds me very much of the filling of a peanut butter cup. I’ve even scooped out spoonfuls of it, rolled it into little balls in the palms of my hands, and given them to my son as a healthy and fun snack. When spread on warm toast, it’s instantly soft and fluid as you’d expect peanut butter to be.
Perhaps my best experience with it was when my mother made me some peanut better cookies with it. (Oh my! Did I eat most of them all by myself??? Oops!)
Now that I have all you peanut butter lovers drooling on your keyboards, it’s time to offer you a chance to win your own 16-ounce jar! ($14.99 retail; on sale now for $9.99.)
