We love Peanut butter in this house. Like really really love peanut butter. My husband eats peanut butter with breakfast everyday. I grew up with a particular brand of peanut butter and never swayed until I met my husband. He grew up with natural peanut butter and got me to branch out in my peanut butter world. I’ve never looked back.
When we were offered the chance to try out Pic’s Peanut Butter, I jumped on it. A new peanut butter from New Zealand? Sure. I mean how different can peanut butter be. Well my friends this peanut butter really is “really good” peanut butter as the jar states. I really enjoyed this peanut butter. I tried it on toast and was awesome. Their crunchy peanut butter is unlike anything I’ve tried. The texture really is different from other crunchy peanut butters. If you inspect it (as I of course do…for review purposes of course)you’ll notice all the different sizes of peanut chunks. They really take their peanut butter seriously and I appreciate that.
Now I have a tried and true peanut butter recipe I’m going to share with you. It calls for creamy peanut butter but I gave it a try with Pic’s Crunchy. The crunchy added something a little different to the usual cookie consistency and I liked it. If you aren’t a crunchy fan give Pic’s Creamy a try. Either way if you are a fan of peanut butter Pic’s needs to be on your list of must haves.
