I attended the SF Fancy Food Show as a guest of my sister. For food lovers, this is Costco sample table time a million! Last time I went, I was in the industry and over 345lbs. Needless to say, this time I am almost half that size and have a very different mindset and lifestyle. So I was pleasantly surprised when I saw so many products that were all natural, organic, non GMO, gluten free, etc.!
After walking a couple of rows of the show (which is about the same distance as the length of a football field) I knew I had to share these delicious and healthy eats! So this week, my goal is to feature at least one product per day!
Today’s product is from Peanut Butter & Co. (http://ilovepeanutbutter.com) and is one of my new favorites Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter PACKETS!! I love the individual serving size packets of products but I especially love these because of the quality of the product and the all natural ingredients! Packets are great to put into kid’s lunches for school/snack with apples, equally great for adults and they sweet cravings as well, and as a runner (who is now a traveled racer) I love taking these with me on the go! For my most recent run–the Walt Disney World Resort Half Marathon–I had to take my running on the go! Being that room service is rarely up when we are for races, I pack and prep my own breakfast the mornings of. The packets come in handy for situations like these! Plus, it will be in my running belt for my next half in April as a fuel food (a lot easier than packing a bar and a whole lot more tasty then that gooey stuff!).
To take you through a Peanut Butter & Co experience, you really have to try the creamy (and sometimes a little crunchy–which I’m normally not a fan of but love the subtle way they did it in their product) seduction yourself. For a friend of mine who has a nut allergy and has never been able to try other chocolate nut spreads, she can finally try this (she’s NOT allergic to peanuts as they are actually a legume). For those of us who love chocolate and peanut butter…well this is just heaven on earth all in one! And as someone who’s a huge fan of dark chocolate (and NOT milk chocolate), I’m glad that someone has finally paired my two favorites together!
I want to share the love with you. So leave a comment below and tell me how much you LOVE peanut butter and I’ll pick someone at random who will win some Peanut Butter & Co Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter packets! Just enter your comment by 11:59pm PT on Friday February 1, 2013 to qualify!
