I won an awesome contest where I got 3 free jars of Peanut Butter & Co. Peanut Butter. Of the three I chose, I picked one of my favorites, White Chocolate Wonderful, and this one, Cinnamon Raisin Swirl.

I opened my jar, and saw no oil separation, so that was a plus. Another thing I noticed, was a lot of the raisins were on the bottom! Here’s a pic of the bottom of my jar, so you can see for yourself.

Even after eating  a serving or so, there still was very minimal raisins on top.

I wasn’t really complaining however,  because it’s not like I couldn’t easily stir it. AND, the peanut butter by itself, even without the raisins, was so delicious!

It was a smooth peanut butter, but if you “chew” the peanut butter, you can detect granules similar in consistency to sugar. The cinnamon flavor was certainly prominent, which I liked. You can taste both the sweetness and the cinnamon flavor, with the beautiful flavor of a rich peanut butter. The raisins were soft, chewy and sweet. It was really delicious. Honestly, all I needed was a spoon, and I was happy (;

Overall, 4 1/2 stars. Certainly delicious. I liked it both when I tried it with the raisins and without the raisins. I’ll just have a few extra “surprises” waiting for me at the bottom of my jar (:

What’s your favorite food involving raisins? I happen to be fond of chocolate covered raisins (;

And here’s a snapshot of the nutritional facts.

In honor of National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day, I felt it was appropriate to celebrate in the form of peanut butter. This is one holiday I certainly do not mind spending! (Not that I really mind any holidays for that matter, but this one in particular is worth celebrating! =) )

So, I ordered the Fluffernutter sandwich, which came with carrot sticks and a bag of chips. Yes, I realize it’s National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day, but Fluff is equally as delicious, and in all fairness, it still was a peanut butter sandwich =)

Here’s a pic of what I got (minus the chips that I saved for later)

Can you honestly tell me that doesn't look delicious? Mmm.

Although it may not seem it, the sandwich is actually rather large. I got my Fluffernutter on wheat bread, which was soft and just perfect. The peanut butter went excellent with the fluff, I got that “stuck-on-the-roof-of-my-mouth” feeling from the peanut butter, and the soft marshmallow fluff brought some sweetness to compliment the peanut butter.

On the menu listed on the website it says “Remember this recipe? Peanut Butter on one side, and gobs of Marshmallow Fluff spread on the other. It’s heaven”. I could not agree more. There really was peanut butter and fluff oozing out of the sandwich, which I had no problem using my crust to wipe up and eat.

The only slight disappointment of the meal was the carrot sticks. Not that they weren’t tasty, because they did taste quite fresh and delicious, but there wasn’t enough! Only three!? I would have much preferred a heftier side of carrots to compliment my sandwich.

Regardless, 4 1/2 stars. One of the best Fluffernutter sandwiches I ever ate.

Did you/ are you celebrating National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day? Please let me know! =)

This peanut butter. Is. Beyond. Amazing. (Yes, so amazing I felt the urge to use periods between each word!)

According to the website , this spread is “More than just a sandwich spread, it is fantastic on fruit, spooned over ice cream, when used as an ingredient in baked goods, or simply eaten out of the jar! It contains no cholesterol, no trans fats, no hydrogenated oils, and no high-fructose corn syrup. It is also gluten-free, certified vegan, and certified kosher pareve by the Orthodox Union.”

Two words to describe it? Incredibly delicious. What I liked about it, is that it is a natural peanut butter, AND there was hardly ANY oil separation! Being the white chocolate lover that I am, I had a feeling I was going to like this peanut butter!

It was smooth, sweet and creamy, and had a light vanilla flavor to it. I didn’t need anything else but a spoon to enjoy it (as that’s how I like most of my nut butters!). It really tasted as if someone melted a chunk of white chocolate into a jar of peanut butter, and turned a savory spread into something dessertlike.

Overall, BLISS! 5 stars for sure. Now excuse me as I go finish the rest of the jar. 😉
