Have you given this kicked-up peanut butter a try yet? I had a dollar off coupon to use and was debating over the varieties of Peanut Butter & Co. (I borrowed the photo from their website) that my Whole Foods had on its shelf. There was Cinnamon Raisin Swirl, Dark Chocolate Dreams, Smooth Operator, and The Heat Is On. Now, I love peanut butter, so this was a tough choice. Should I go for the one that promised to be a peanut-y version of Nutella? What about some sweet, cinnamon-y goodness for my toast? No offense, but Smooth Operator was out of the question when I had these other 3 intriguing possibilities. Hmmm, could I concoct a savory, spicy sauce with The Heat Is On? That is exactly what I decided to do. I paid for my (recycled plastic) jar of peanut butter and it settled into its new home on my pantry shelf.
There it sat for a couple weeks until my darn allergies hit me again on Monday. I had the brilliant idea of eating something spicy to try to knock out the allergies and my thoughts turned to my new jar of peanut butter. I took a tiny taste and was nearly knocked over by the spicy punch it was packing! According to their website, The Heat Is On is "all-natural peanut butter blended with chili powder, cayenne and crushed red peppers." Ever since that first taste, I've found myself grabbing a spoon for another bite! Give this a try, but only if you like a little heat!
