When I saw this drink on the shelf I wasn’t sure what to think. I like peanut butter, you can safely declare me a fan, but I still wasn’t totally sure that I would want a drink made from the stuff. Obviously curiosity set in and I still bought the jar, I just wasn’t sure what to expect.
I popped the kettle on and opened the jar, the annoying cardboard seal finally relinquished the contents after putting up a fair defence and only giving in after it had been torn into several pieces.
The contents inside were grainy, light in weight and slightly orange in colour. I added the suggested 5 teaspoons to my mug and made a cup for my mum (who requested some hot chocolate powder in hers to make it Snickers like) and then looked into the tub slight shocked at just how much of the contents I’d already used up.
My drink mixed up quite easily when I added the water, it just needing a bit of stir to dissolve in, and there in my mug was essentially a hot peanut butter drink. I gave it a taste and the flavour wowed me, its not often I say that. I’m not sure what I was expecting but the sweetened golden flavour of peanut butter was like magic. The nutty flavour came through perfectly, although it was lacking the hint of salt you’d normally associate with the flavour, the sweetness added the perfect soothing touch. Think peanuts dipped in honey, it was pure heaven. I’ve just finished my latest online Sainsburys order and duly added another jar to be delivered, because I’m totally hooked. And yes, if you feel like replacing a couple of teaspoons of the mix with hot chocolate, my mum confirms that works perfectly too!
