P.B. Loco Product Review

Posted on November 24, 2009. Filed under: Product Review | Tags: , , , , , |

Last week I was sent some samples of P.B. Loco‘s gourmet nut butters to review. P.B. Loco is known for making upscale, intricate flavors of peanut butter. If you’re lucky enough to live near one of their cafes, you can stop in any time and order a signature sandwich. Otherwise, their peanut butter can be found at Breugger’s Bagels and some specialty grocery stores.

Before I get into the reviews, I want to mention that I’ve been on the mailing list of P.B. Loco for quite some time, and they never fail to provide delicious sounding recipes and discount coupons in their bimonthly newsletters. You can sign up for these on their website. Right now there are a few promos I know about. Their blogger promotion has it that if you spend $30 or more you can get jar of P.B.Loco Dreamy Creamy Peanut Butter with the coupon code BLOG1209. Their newsletter promo now is get a free jar of Munchy Crunchy if you buy their new dairy-free and vegan peanut butter package and use the code DAIRYFREE.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

8.5/10: The first thing I noticed about this was the aroma; it smelled just like peanut butter mingling with fresh milk chocolate. The ingredient list was a bit long and complex at first but after looking it over I was happy to see simply peanut butter and what ingredients I would need to make cookies. After first try, I was surprised how neutral the taste was; it wasn’t bad, but it was a little too subtle. There was definitely a hint of chocolate and vanilla, but I’m not sure it all pulled together for a “cookie dough” sense. With a little added salt, this really perked  up. And with a low sugar content, this remains a nut butter with a good source of healthy fats and protein and not a “spread”. I’m sure to keep a jar of this in my pantry.

Raspberry White Chocolate

7.5/10: P.B. Loco manages to dream up some of the most tantalizing and unique flavor, and this was no exception. I love the combination of white chocolate and berries and I couldn’t wait to see how they would work in a nut butter. The raspberry was present, but a bit too subtle for my taste buds. Rather than a distinct flavor I got more of a generic tartness. Mini white chocolate chips speckled the whole peanut butter and looked adorable; they only made me wonder, though, how much this could still be considered a “nut butter” with so much decadent chocolate. While it wasn’t perfect, I really liked this as a new twist to white chocolate peanut butter and an innovative flavor.

Thank you for your reviews on these 2 flavors. I too am not that crazy about the long ingredients lists, but the flavors are fun 🙂

Thanks for the review.. Ive never seen these at any store! Sounds like they would be a decadent treat!

Yum! My mouth is watering thinking about those peanut butter varieties.

Wow, I’ve never heard of these, and I’m obsessed with PB! They sound like they’d make good ice cream toppings.

Mmm … I haven’t ever had that brand but it sounds fabulous!
