PbCrave Review and Giveaway

        Somedays, regular old peanut butter just won't do. Finding a peanut butter that is not only made with better ingredients but also tastes better is a rare find. In a world of processed this, and high fructose that is can be tough to really know if what you are eating is good for you. 
       What if, not only is your peanut butter good for you, but good for others? PBCrave is a company created by one man bored of regular flavored peanut butter. Not only has the company grown but so has their heart.
     PBCrave started Project Peanut Butter so they could give back. A minimum of 2% of their profits from every jar goes toward, Project Peanut Butter, a non-profit organization focused on treating malnourished kids.

    The non-profit organization has helped save the lives of more than 100,000 children through ready-to-use therapeutic foods (RUTFs) featuring high-calorie, fortified peanut butter-like pastes.
    Around the world, malnutrition is the leading cause of death for children under 5. *
   If that isn't sweet enough for you I don't know what is! Another great thing about PBCrave is their peanut butters can be used in all kinds of recipes just like any other peanut butter, but with a more delicious result! 
    Don't take my word for it, check out Celebrity Chef Andrew Zimmern's OpenSky Page and video review on PB Crave!
     I think that the Cookie Nookie has restored my faith in peanut butter. Being the first one I tasted, I was completely blown away at how good it was. It was balanced without being overly sweet. One of my main aversions to chocolate and peanut butter together is in candy bars, the peanut butter almost tastes fake with it's sickly sweet flavor and weird gritty texture. I think if the combination had started like this from the beginning I would have been a bigger fan of it all my life. I'm hoping it can only get better from here.

  This is not at all what I was hoping it would be. Maybe I had higher hopes because of how much I love raspberry. I was expecting bitter sweet raspberry and lightly sweet wild honey and all I could taste is sweetness. I think it is that more than anything that took me off guard, so it is very possible that mixing it with strawberry jam was a bad idea, besides that, in small doses it is great and I advise against mixing it with strawberry jam unless you have a really big sweet tooth.  
 This classic combination of peanut butter and banana has stood the test of time. This is really no exception. This classic flavor tastes exactly like what it is supposed to taste like, peanut butter and bananas mixed with chocolate! The best part about there being no surprises here is that they don't come with some weird additive or unnatural ingredient that you don't need or shouldn't be eating. Just sit back, relax and enjoy a classic that may take you back to your childhood! 

   Who doesn't love chocolate and chocolate and peanut butter? A combination of honey as well as sweet and Dark chocolate really is pretty great. I was afraid this would be either too much or too sweet but it was actually pretty perfect. I wasn't expecting I would like this as much as I did but everything about this brand keeps surprising me over and over and over again!
