Buzzed up peanut butter

Since we had a stay over in Minneapolis when we went to the wedding, we went on over to our old stomping grounds...


As we wasted time wandering around, we came across a store that was not there the last time we were. P.B.Loco is a store that only sells different jars of peanut butter and is set up to make a grilled sandwich or a veggie snack with the peanut butter of your choice. They had free samples and after we ate way too many, we ended up picking out a jar that captivated our overloaded tastebuds the most.

It was slightly sweet, smooth and creamy with cocoa undertones. There was a distinct coffee aroma and taste. We had most of it on bagels or on some crisp celery. Unfortunetly, the jar did not last nearly long enough for the price - but I would not hesitate to buy this again if we were in the area. We were tempted by some of the savory options (Asian curry spice anyone?) but I would love to try some of the other flavors in some baked goods.

  2. Tammy - Have you been there before? When we lived in Minneapolis we went there probably at least once a week! It can't imagine how often we would be there now that Ikea moved in next door!

  3. NO!! We have not been and honestly, my dd and I want to make it our vacation one year. DH isn't as thrilled at the thought of a vacation at a mall, hehe! Oh, once a week??? I get thrilled with just going to Target once a week!

    Well, at least I have a dream, right? LOL

  4. Now, that sounds interesting! Peanut butter and chocolate is already yummy, with a mocha flavor involved... I can only imagine how good it was. I perfectly understand why it didn't last long! hehe!

  5. Joe,
    Did you know that there is now a PB Loco at Scottsdale Fashion Square?
    I'm not even much of a pb fan, but they make it sound so tempting.
