Peanut Butter Reviews – Part 13

I can’t believe this is the 13th peanut butter review. Considering each review consists of at least 3 varieties, that’s a lot of peanut butter! But I guess it’s only fitting for the Peanut Butter Boy. This time around, I have a special treat for you – this review consists of a unique peanut butter brand that is difficult to find (for now!).


My Better Butter Maple Pumpkin

= 80%
My Better Butter is a peanut-based spread that uses healthy additions (such as fresh pumpkin or bananas) to inject flavor while decreasing the calories by about 50%. Because of this, all of these flavors need to be refrigerated. This one in particular reminds me of Thanksgiving, which despite being a few months past, doesn’t make it any less enticing. The texture is close to pumpkin puree but a bit thicker, perhaps closer to frosting – and it doesn’t taste all that different from frosting either! The ingredients are peanuts, pumpkin, maple syrup, cinnamon, ginger, all spice, nutmeg, and sea salt. It’s sweet without being overly so, and despite being cold when eaten out of the fridge, it still makes you feel warm and cozy inside. As such, this flavor is great on toast or a bagel. And I imagine this would make one killer pumpkin pie!

My Better Butter Honey Nut Banana

= 75%
The name sounds delicious. The aroma is enticing. The flavor doesn’t disappoint. While I was sampling this flavor, I thought it would make the perfect Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bread, but the flavor is already so much like banana bread that I feared the flavor would be wasted in the bread. A smooth consistency makes it go down easily and the texture is similar to the green wasabi paste you get in Japanese restaurants. Great to eat by itself but it’s the perfect flavor to use for Peanut Butter Cereal.

My Better Butter Nutty Chocolate Chip

= 85%
The texture of this one is similar to Nutella but a bit thicker. It’s not very spreadable (at least when it’s cold), but the flavor more than makes up for it. It’s a rich, thick chocolate peanut butter that kicks it up a notch by adding chocolate chips. The other two flavors were exactly as their names suggest, but I feel this one deserves more credit. Without those chocolate chips it would be just another chocolate peanut butter, but with them it’s a different story. I think this flavor should be called “Double Chocolate Chip” because it kinda tastes like you’re eating double chocolate chip cookie dough. Great for a Peanut Butter Hot Dog if you can get it to spread.
