Nothing catches my eye like a new product on the shelf. I’ve been a fan of 100% Nutz Peanut Butter for quite some time, so the addition of dark chocolate to a winning formula was an easy sale. I figured people would wonder how it compares to Nutella, so gave myself an excuse to buy a jar of that too (and use the extra to make some of Sofia’s Nutella cookies).
Spreading this Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter onto your toast is a bit like melting down the essence of a peanut brownie and slathering it (at least where I’m from, we slather) over your toasted bread. Don’t expect big chunks of peanut like a peanut brownie, but still plenty of texture to sink your teeth into. With the dark chocolate it’s quite a grown up taste, which I think is what they’re aiming for. These guys use hi oleic peanuts to make their product, and promote the health benefits underlying the high quality of their ingredients.
So, if you want the velvety smooth texture and sweetness of Nutella, this won’t be an adequate substitute. If you’re looking for more virtue out of your nut spread, but enjoy the taste of chocolate with it too, this is a great go to if you feel like you’ve outgrown the charms of Nutella. If you’ve got kids, hopefully you can find room for both items side by side in the pantry.
Serve with toast, or send with your child to summer camp if you want to have your own Farmbake Cookie moment, without having to actually supply any cookies.
