Let me start by saying that I never write reviews. PB2 sparked a desire to do so. I am a self-admitted peanut butter addict. I can easily house an entire jar in a single sitting. This being said, I am also paleo, and peanut butter doesn't fit in with that based on the omega 3 to 6 ratio and being a legume. I also tend to *really* regret eating peanut butter the next day, as my stomach doesn't really appreciate it.
Enter PB2. I was highly skeptical. Opening the package is a little tricky, as it's vacuum-packed without a resealable container. You just have to carefully use a knife or whatever. I just put the rest into empty peanut butter jars. Easy fix.
First, I tasted the powder straight up. Highly promising. Tasted exactly like delicious, roasted peanuts. I mixed two spoons of the powder with just enough water to imitate thick peanut butter. My first taste was...a revelation. Amazing. Mind-blowing. I couldn't comprehend it. IT. TASTED. LIKE. PEANUT. BUTTER.
Holy crap, this stuff is amazing (both the regular and chocolate), and has limitless applications. I stirred it into mashed bananas with a dash of milk. I put it into my post-workout protein smoothie. Oh. God. I'm going to spend so much money on this.
One caveat is that the texture is not like true peanut butter. It doesn't have the viscous, thick, stick-to-the-roof-of-your-mouth feel. It's more like a light, peanut butter "mousse" if you will.
The real litmus test was how my stomach would handle it. No problem at all.
PB2. I love thee, and will create a shrine in my kitchen to thee.
