Yummmm

Just so you know the depths of my peanut butter/Reese’s addiction- you can’t buy these in Canada, not quite yet. I bought these from England via Amazon.

I know, I know. But still, I HAD to try them. And I have seen them in Canada, weirdly in Penticton at a candy store so there is always that option…Back to the peanut butter. At first glance and smell, it looks just like normal peanut butter- your Jif, Skippy, Kraft, et al. BUT on tasting it, it has a more intensely smooth flavour and texture.

Where the lesser peanut butters fail (oily, weird, bad mouthfeel and cheap tasting), the Reese’s Peanut Butter has a fabulous mouth feel despite what can only be a gazillion calories in palm oil, etc. However, you can’t fool yourself- it’s still peanut butter, not a Reese’s spread. It is lacking the gritty, delicious texture and taste of the Reese’s Spreads. So, it’s probably the best dessert peanut butter I have ever had, and yes there is a difference between what I think is ‘dessert peanut butter’ and more ‘savoury peanut butter’- see Adam’s peanut butter for an example).

I also went nuts on it the other day and I ate probably half a jar, so if that says anything about it to you…In my defense I prepared for this eventuality and ate a salad for dinner and then marshmallows with peanut butter for the main course.
