If you go to a big supermarket, you’ll see two basic kinds of peanut butter: creamy and crunchy. If you’re lucky, you might also see a honey roasted flavor in the mix. But peanuts go with so many flavors that it actually seems a bit odd that there aren’t more flavored peanut butter options out there. Fortunately, however, a company called P.B. Loco makes more than enough to go around, and offers up peanut butter paired with all kinds of things, from Asian Curry Spice to Raspberry White Chocolate.
Their Peanut Butter with Jungle Banana is one flavor in particular that is creative and tasty. Peanut butter on bananas was one of my favorite after-school snacks as a kid and it didn’t seem in the least bit strange to get those two flavors together in one spoonful straight out the jar. The peanut butter is smooth and creamy, with strong flavors of both peanuts and bananas, and a nice toasted-nut flavor to the finish. It is excellent on bananas and would make a fantastic fluffernutter sandwich with marshmallow cream. This flavor also reminds me strongly of Elvis, since he will always be remembered as being a huge fan of fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches.
