A Reason to Celebrate

I’m always up for a celebration, how about you???

Well, today is National Peanut Butter Day!

I definitely think peanut butter deserves its own holiday.  I wonder if there is a national almond butter day…

As you know, I have a deep love for peanut butter.

I celebrated early this morning by grabbing a spoonful of Wild Squirrel cinnamon raisin peanut butter as I walked out the door for another early morning cheer practice.

I celebrated again this afternoon by having a teaspoon of Skippy natural before my Zumba class. 

I may have to celebrate one last time before bed…since it is a holiday and all.

How did you celebrate National Peanut Butter Day???


Nut butter obsession…

Hi.  My name is Natalie, and I’m a nut butter addict.

(This is the part where you say, “Hello, Natalie!”)

See?  I’m telling you I have a slight problem.  I would be lying if I said that was all the nut butter I owned…there are 4 more jars in the fridge (freshly ground almond butter from WF, another TJ’s almond butter with roasted flax seeds, Nuttzo, and peanut free Nutzo). 

I love trying all the different varieties that have become available recently, especially if I can find a great deal!  I have purchased Nuttzo, Justin’s, and Wild Squirrel Nut Butter from Opensky (do you have an opensky account?  If not, get one, and get one quickly!  It’s awesome!).  I love all nut butters (and seed butters, too), but this week, I got to try something unique and delicious.  Opensky was running a special for four 16 oz jars of Wild Squirrel Nut Butter, and I had a $10 credit, so I just couldn’t pass up the chance to try this delicious looking treat.  I felt like a child waiting for Christmas morning as I stalked  tracked my package of peanut butter.  When it arrived, I couldn’t wait to tear open the package and sample each of the four innovative mixtures.  That’s right, I opened all four jars.  Don’t judge – you would have done the same thing.

First up:  Sneaky Cinnamon

Seriously – it tastes like a cinnamon raisin bagel with peanut butter.  It has a TON of cinnamon, which I love, and it has little bits of raisins.  I could eat this everyday. 

Next: Pretzel Pizazz

Honey peanut butter with crunchy pretzel bits???  Yes, please!  Amazing.

After that: Curious Cocoa-Nut

Chocolate peanut butter with a hint of coconut.  This is by far the creamiest peanut butter I’ve ever tasted.  Look how smooth it is!

dec 13 102

And finally: Bright Eyed and Bushy Tailed

Espresso peanut butter with a chocolate swirl…mmmmm…  It has ground espresso beans that add a little crunch.  This would be perfect on a spoon toast with a hot cup of coffee!

They were all unbelievably delicious, but I think my favorite was the sneaky cinnamon.  It’s hard to beat cinnamon raisin peanut butter. 

What’s your favorite nut butter???

I received an email advertising pecan butter by Artisana – have you ever tried it?  I can’t wait to order some, but I think I need to wait until I have finished at least one jar of Wild Squirrel Nut Butter (I give it two weeks at the most).
