eat: fancy peanut butter

Yes, please! That was my response after my friend Cathy asked if I wanted to try some gourmet peanut butter. She had ordered the fancy pb from Spread, a restaurant in San Diego, after it was featured on the Food Network's The Best Thing I Ever Ate. 

Spread uses all locally grown, organic ingredients and also makes it’s own brand of flavoured peanut & almond butters. Over 50 different kinds including: Rose Salted Basil, Dark Chocolate Espresso, White Chocolate Blueberry and Ode to Elvis (smooth pb swirled with dried bananas, organic soy bacon bits & sweet floral honey). Whoa.

You can see the full list of seriously intriguing flavours here.

I've always had an affinity for peanut butter but clearly had no idea what kind of taste sensation I was in for. Egad. This stuff was scrumptious. My fav flavour was No.73 - White Chocolate Pretzel. Deliciousness all over the place. I don't think I'll ever look at peanut butter the same way again.

This one’s best enjoyed straight out of the jar. It’s the only way to do it.

Wouldn't this make a super gift for the pb lover and/or foodie in your life? Indeed. You can buy Spread in individual jars or in a variety of themed gift boxes, including: “Gentlemen’s Travel Kit,” "Sex and Candy" and the "Munchies".

And please, for the love of Mary, don't try to google Spread without adding the words 'peanut butter' somewhere in your search. Especially if your grandma or five-year-old nephew are hanging around your computer. Ya feel me? ;) Now go and spread the love. Ha!

Happy Sunday! Here's to a lovely week ahead.



  1. I'm a PB fanatic too! I pretty much lather my banana's in the stuff. Now I've started adding it to my oatmeal.

    As for white chocolate pretzel? Wowzers! Sounds incredibly delish ;) I Soooo want to try this.

  2. Oh my GOODNESS!!!!! I love peanut butter!!! Thanks for sharing these amazing flavours :)

  3. Mmmmmmmmm! Thanks for sharing:)

  4. I can't believe you were holding out on me! Your little preggo friend would have loooved to dip into this yesterday ;) Y-UM.

  5. I think I've found my new addiction. I love pb and this just brings it to a whole new level. My husband's head office is in San Diego so guess what he'll be stocking up on.

  6. Amy - Yippee! Another PB aficionado. Can you just imagine how tantalizing your bananas would be mixed with that white chocolate pretzel PB? Yum. Yum.

    Lizzy - Isn't this the niftiest company? Take something most people like and turn it up a notch or two... or gazillion.

    Kristin - Most welcome lady! It tasted as good as it looks. Promise.

    Christine - I wasn't holding out lil' preggo, scout's honour. I only had the jars at home for a day & that was only to take their pictures. ;)

    Carol - It was meant to be! Lucky lady! Can't wait to hear your feedback once you taste that first spoonful. :)

  7. this looks amazing!!! ohhhh. i LOVE peanut butter although I'm afraid I'd end up eating the entire jar by myself and then start crying as I felt my pants get tighter and tighter :)

  8. What a great gift idea (possibly for myself - just sayin'). It seems like you couldn't possibly improve on the perfection of peanut butter, but it sure sounds like they have! Can't wait to try this out (and thanks for the tip on searching for them - good call).
