PB Loco Product Review

Note: PB Loco sent me some of their flavored peanut butters to try... I got 1.) PB with Jungle Banana and 2.) PB with Raspberry white chocolate.... OMG! just when I thought PB could not get any yummier... And not only that, they have other flavors. (chocolate chip cookie dough!) I sampled both of them on my favorite pb sampler: bananas :)

About PB Loco: This company was founded in 2003 by 3 lawyers: Ken Hall, Jodene Jensen and Keri Barney. There are actual PB Loco Cafes throughout the country. To find one near you, visit here www.pbloco.com/storelocator.asp

Jungle Banana: This flavor was very smooth, as you can tell from the pics below. It had a banana taste to it, but wasn't overpowering. Was definitely sweet.

Description from PB Loco website: Deep in the heart of the dark jungle stalk the tasty treats now held in a jar of Jungle Banana premium peanut butter. The untamed flavor of bananas are now caged with the fiercest peanuts. They practically pounce into your mouth. Grrr!

Raspberry with White Chocolate: OMG, this was my favorite of the 2... obviously. White chocolate and peanut butter, my two favorite things. It was a bit chunkier with actual pieces of white chocolate throughout (see pics below). This was awesome. Again, it was sweeter than regular peanut butter, as would be expected. I am glad they gave me such little jars or I'd eat the whole jar by the end of the week!

Description from PB Loco website: Why are you reading this? Do you honestly believe it is humanly possible to describe in words the ecstasy your tongue will discover upon tasting the sweet fusion of juicy raspberries, premium peanut butter and German white chocolate?
