White Chocolate Wonderful Review

I’m not a generally lucky person. However, I love the saying “even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while”. Well, about two weeks ago, I was that squirrel! Michelle selected me as the winner of a jar of “White Chocolate Wonderful” peanut by Peanut Butter and Co. Check her blog out here. She is just getting back into running after breaking her toe. Go Michelle!!

Peanut Butter and Co is a sandwich shop in Grenwich Village who obviously also makes peanut butter. The first time that I had the peanut butter, I was immediately overwhelmed by how creamy it was. Normally, it seems that organic peanut butter is a bit gritty, but the white chocolate that was included in this one really smoothed it out. Even though a lot of people won’t find this a particularly good thing, I loved that when I ate it before one of my long runs, it had a few extra calories than normal PB. I don’t have the jar in front of me, but I feel like it had around 200 vs the normal ~160. Always a good thing, right?

As long as it doesn't make you have to take a dump while running, then yes it's a good thing :P

Extra calories is a good thing? What have you been smoking?

But yes, I like (demand, actually) that my peanut butter is smooth.

YAY! I am glad you have extra energy for your runs!! I say make a GU or GEL out of the PB! You can market it and sell it. It would be a popular item for marathon training!!!

OK, i will stop now!!!
