Update 06/10--Unfortunately the cafe didn't make it as when I went back to Arizona for a visit it was gone. Too bad. Still great peanut butter though.
Update 10/09--I had a chance to go to the P.B. Loco Cafe in Scottsdale, Arizona and had a ball with a custom grilled pannini peanut butter sandwich with their Cocoa-Banana Peanut Butter and Shredded Coconut. Too bad there isn't one near me. I may just have to get my own pannini maker--never would have thought of grilling peanut butter!
I know peanut butter in the right portions is very good for you, and as a flexitarian it's a great meatless protein choice. But here's the rub. I'm not wild about peanut butter. As non-fat frozen yogurt--yes! As an occasional Reese's Peanut Butter Cup (fun size only)--yes! But just good old grown up peanut butter? I've got to really be in the mood for it.
That was until I discovered P.B. Loco Peanut Butter. It was another one of those "husband has been flying for a business trip, caught up on reading, here come a bunch of magazine and newspaper clippings to check out" times. He had seen P B Loco Peanut Butter mentioned in a health magazine article and wanted to know what store carried it to try. Unfortunately, the answer for Las Vegas was "nobody".
So I contacted the company, and since they knew I write this popular blog The Healthy Food Review, and they agreed to send me a couple of samples for review. However, I did warn them that I am always completely honest about the pros and cons of the healthy food items I review to maintain the blog's integrity (and you regular readers know I'm not shy about that).
