#BlogHer12 – Blogger Bash: Review and Sweepstakes – PBCrave $41.94 Value!

PB Crave sent me one of each of their flavors; Choco Choco (Peanut butter twisted with real Belgium chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, and wild honey), Coco Bananas (Peanut butter twisted with natural banana flavor, chocolate chips, and wild honey), Razzle Dazzle (Peanut butter twisted with natural raspberry flavor, white & dark chocolate chips, and wild honey ) and Cookie Nookie (Peanut butter twisted with natural cookie dough flavor, milk chocolate chips, and wild honey) to try out. I love that these are made out of natural ingredients, so I feel good about giving it to my kids, even though it is a flavored spread.

Coco Bananas

When our jars arrived, it was during that heat wave, and our PB Crave was “melty”. I thought it was a weather related incident, however, even after the volcanic temperatures were lowered, there was an ample amount of liquid on the top of the jars. I am not thinking that this is a natural occurrence with this spread, due to the ingredients used. I know that many of the natural peanut butters, or almond butters have a layer of fat on the top of the jars, so I think this is what I am seeing with the PBCrave as well. To rid the top of the jar from the thin liquid, take the item you will be spreading with and give it a twirl or five in the jar to mix everything up evenly.

My kids are not picky eaters, so they loved every flavor. Personally, I HATE bananas, I will eat them if I am low in potassium, but I don’t enjoy them. So, I was surprised that I enjoyed the Coco Bananas flavor! It was actually my favorite of the bunch. It had a nice light banana flavor, just enough to give it a sweet taste and not overpower the rest of it. I enjoyed the Razzle Dazzle the least, but I can’t quite pin down why. PB Crave does not need jelly, or marshmallow spreads to complete the sandwiches, the peanut butter spread is sweet enough on its own, even though the only sugars in PB Crave are natural sugars in the chocolate chips or natural fruit flavors and honey.

We are not a Gluten Free family, but I know that many of my readers are, so I wanted to point out that PB Crave IS Gluten Free, although it is not yet certified organic.
