I’ve seen Skippy Peanut Butter before, but only in American import stores. It's a big brand over there but not one I’ve tried. The import prices put me off! Skippy has just launched in the UK and the prices are much more in line with what you’d expect (ie £2.49 for a jar). There are two varieties, depending on the texture you prefer, Smooth or Super Crunch.
I decided to give the Smooth variety a go first, on some crunchy bread. There was a lovely pop of peanut aroma once I peeled off the cover under the lid. It was quite a thick consistency to spread, but went on easily. The flavour was very good, it had a lovely rich taste, and the best part was it didn’t feel too sticky in the mouth.
Next up I gave the Super Crunch a try on a bagel. It was thick but spread nicely, even though it had nice big crunchy nut pieces. This one was fun to eat, and the flavour and texture was full on. I think would be particularly nice on a soft bread.
I found myself to have a preference for the Smooth, which is unusual as I normally like a mix of textures. I guess the texture of the crunchy bread I’d chosen was all the texture I needed. Interested to find out which you’d prefer? The lovely folks at Skippy have some jars to give away to readers of Foodstuff Finds. To enter please use the Rafflecopter below.
