This product was a celebrity peanut butter on the blogosphere a few months ago and I was overjoyed to see samples from Bell Plantation arrive with their powdered peanut butter product, PB2 and a sample of their chocolate PB2!

I had mine mixed separately and dipped my oatmeal into it. Then I drizzled it on my oatmeal.
Oh my goodness! It tastes like frosting, really, chocolate peanut butter frosting! It was so delicious that I thought I was eating the frosting off of a cupcake! Neither flavors (chocolate and peanut) overpowered the other and it was very smooth but thick.
I love the nutrition facts! I think healthy fats are wonderful, but they do add up the calories pretty easily! This would be a great dessert option for a frosting that is much healthier than the saturated fat /sugar of buttercream etc. !

I enjoyed this with banana slices and with oatmeal. I think this is such a fantastic option for Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches, because those can be very high in kcal and not very voluminous. Using a lower kcal pb that is lower in sugar and saturated fat could help make a pb&j sammy a better meal constituent.
Taste: It tasted just like any creamy peanut butter. I actually like this better than most peanut butters because it didn’t have the oily mess of naturals but it wasn’t so sweet and trans fat tasting like common brands ( jiffy, skippy, etc. ).
This peanut butter is powdered, which means much like circa The Depression, it will last for a much longer time!
It does not require refrigeration!
It boasts 5 g of protein and less than 2 g of Fat! Those healthy unsaturated fats and high protein content make this nutritionally sound!
Because you have to mix it with water, so you can actually tailor the consistency to your preference.
Taste! Those that prefer the more creamy texture of Jiff, Skippy etc. would enjoy the taste of this creamy PB2 while reaping the healthier ingredients.
You must mix it with water to get the correct consistency. This is usually not an issue but could be if you aren’t close to a water source!
It costs just about the same as other peanut butters ( $3 per jar) but you most likely have to order it online and pay for shipping.
It is available in many stores now as it gains popularity, however, still not in any stores near me!
I am going to be purchasing a 4 pack as soon as I get a little more money in my Pay Pal account! You can check out more info on it at www.BellPlantation.com
