Organic Peanut Butter Giveaway


I love peanut butter; I always have.  When I was a kid I would have had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich every day if my mother would let me. Peanut butter cookies are my favorite cookie, and I also make a great peanut butter frosting for cakes and cupcakes. Yum!
I have to admit though that I had never tasted an organic peanut butter; I just get stuck in my rut and I like a certain brand.
Tropical Traditions has an organic Coconut Peanut Butter that I just had to try. When I first opened the jar I was very impressed with the fresh peanut smell. I breathed in deeply and then detected a slight coconut fragrance. What an interesting combination! I sampled a tiny taste with a spoon and noticed a different texture than I was used to.  Not quite as smooth, but definitely a more true peanut butter taste than any I have had before. I could really go for this!
Next I had to give it a go in a few recipes and on toast, another favorite of mine. Yesterday I made a fresh batch of peanut butter cookies. The texture and flavor was slightly different, but I've noticed that difference any time I switch brands.  Mmmmm, very good!  As I smacked my lips, my husband came up next to me and snatched a warm cookie.  He stated the same thing, a little different but very good just the same. Whenever I've altered one of my mother's recipes, I feel a little like a cheat. Aren't mother's recipes sacred? But then I realized that some things don't always have to stay the same and changes can be for the better.  Knowing that Tropical Traditions is using only the best 100% organic peanuts from the US and 100% organic dried coconut from the Philipines, with no other additives or preservatives makes up for the small differences in flavor. Besides I like it, I really like it!

I never thought of having peanut butter with coconut - sounds delicious! I would use it in PB & banana sandwiches or on toast with honey. My family has a recipe for peanut butter fudge that's been passed through the generations. I wonder what the fudge would be like with the Tropical Traditions PB...
Thanks for offering the giveaway!
