Product of the Week: P.B.Loco Peanut Butter

Peanut butter is a classic snack that is versatile and chock-full of protein and healthy unsaturated fats, but choosing between creamy and chunky is just plain boring. The founders of P.B.Loco had that same thought when they established the gourmet peanut butter company in 2003 and introduced fabulous flavors such as Jungle Banana and Dark Chocolate Duo. If this weren’t enough, the P.B.Loco team recently introduced new formulations of the existing flavors, which are now made with all-natural ingredients and contain no preservatives, high-fructose corn syrup or hydrogenated vegetable oil.

“We listened to our customers,” Ken Hall, co-CEO of P.B.Loco, said in a press release. “The number one request that we received from our customers was to find a way to keep our peanut butters’ great taste and consistency, but use only natural ingredients.”

The newly formulated peanut butters are finger-licking, eat-it-straight-out-of-the-jar-with-the-biggest-spoon-you-can-find good. The Jungle Banana peanut butter goes well with everything from bagels to fruit, and the Chocolate-Chip Cookie Dough rouses those nostalgic feelings of eating cookie dough raw instead of baking it. The best part is knowing that the peanut butter is made with all-natural ingredients, so you can eat it (practically) guilt-free. P.B.Loco peanut butters are a nutritious and delicious way to treat yourself well.
