Peanut Butter & Co. The Bees Knees Peanut Butter

Author: Healthnuttxo

Along with the delicious Cinna Raisin Swirl Peanut Butter I won a little while ago, my 2nd jar I won was the Bees Knees from Peanut Butter & Co.

One thing I noticed about this peanut butter was that it wasn’t vegan. I remember seeing a vegan label on some of the Peanut Butter & Co.’s peanut butter, which made me curious as to why this one wasn’t. After doing some research, I saw that honey wasn’t vegan! Who knew! (If anyone knows for sure, please correct me!)

Anyway-

Onto the peanut butter. In a word? It was….Delicious! Thick, smooth, and very peanut buttery. It had little granules in it, ย along with a pleasant sweetness from the honey. I like that you can taste both the honey and the peanut butter. I had mine directly from the spoon (when does that not happen?), but I think it would be AWESOME on a peanut butter and banana sandwich! (kind of like the Elvis sandwich!!)

I even thought the label was cute- the monkey looks like a bee!

Overall, really tasty! ย It was a tad high in sugar, but not too terrible. I would definitely buy this one in the futureย 4 1/2 stars

    hmmm, never been crazy about honey but all these reviews of pb & co are making me crave pb! ๐Ÿ™‚
    yeah, honey’s not vegan b/c it’s an animal byproduct (bees)

    same line of thinking as why vegans can’t drink milk. a cow didn’t die for the milk, but a cow was used to produce the milk. also, just a random fyi, some white sugar isn’t vegan b/c animal bones are used to filter the sugar

  • Meagan says:

    This was actually the only PB & Co flavor I didn’t like. I muh prefer their White Chocolate Wonderful and Crunch Time!

  • Healthnuttxo says:

    you didnt like this one! aw ๐Ÿ™ I think it also tastes really good on an english muffin. mmm!
    but agreed, WCW is AMAZING!

  • Healthnuttxo says:

    your welcome! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Pen says:

    I have it every morning at work, on toasted english muffins. It is so good I can eat it off a spoon. I used to put PB on the english muffin, then drizzle honey on top. Whoever thought of Bees Knees is brilliant!

  • Healthnuttxo says:

    DITTO! I had an english muffin with Bees Knees and honey! it is SO good! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Lot-O-Choc says:

    Yeh honey isnt vegan because its produced from bees.
    I love the look of all the peanut butter cos range, they all look delicious, we dont really get them here in the UK :(. So irritating, would love to try some of them!

  • Healthnuttxo says:

    aw, how upsetting!! I hope you get a chance to try some soon! and thanks for the info about honey ๐Ÿ™‚

  • They’ve got some great flavors. I love the dark chocolate pb. I mix it in ice cream with oreos and frosted donut chunks for a post-workout snack. Also do the runchy pb with pickles on whole wheat (hey, don’t knock it till you try it!) Right now I’m working on a jar of their cinnamon raisen swirl and it’s awsome.

  • Healthnuttxo says:

    that sounds sooo yummy. oreos and peanut butter are awesome, and now add ice cream and donut chunks? Thats a snack WORTH working out for to get to eat ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Food Spy says:

    this is actually amazing!! i have never been a honey fan but this has become a peanut butter favorite!

  • Healthnuttxo says:

    isn’t it good? a bit hard to find for me though in stores!

  • Woody says:

  • Healthnuttxo says:
