But but ... peanut butter is full of heart-healthy fat. No need to feel guilty unless you eat it by the bowl!<br><br>
Last summer when I upped my unsaturated fat intake primarily by eating PB, almonds, and avocados regularly, I lost 7 lbs. (Note to self: do that again.)

I will be curious about how it tastes compared to PB.

I tried it and thought it was NASTY. Nowhere near real PB.

About the organic or all natural peanut butters...<br><br>
If you look at the label, they all should have only one ingredient... peanuts.<br><br>
With no additives, the ability to change the taste of a peanut is frankly pretty limited.<br><br>
IMHO, if you were to taste test these against their trans fat carrying friends <i>and</i> throw in a third sample of the organic with a little salt added, you'd get more people choosing the organic with salt.<br><br>
Try it... I think it makes a big difference in the taste.

Maybe whole foods... The texture was weird, and so was the taste. Definitely not one of the rave reviewers! <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
I loooooove natural peanut butter. However, I like mine with two ingredients: peanuts and salt. I got a jar once with just peanuts and it was pretty bland. I threw it out.<br><br>
I always buy the store brand of regular natural PB.<br><br>
At whole foods I found a line of PB's that do single servings. Which is good if you are me, and can eat it with a spoon from the jar. <a href="http://www.paragonnaturals.com/jnb.html" target="_blank">http://www.paragonnaturals.com/jnb.html</a><br>
I haven't tried it yet, but next time I get to Whole Foods I'm going to pick some up.

I just saw this topic and wanted to say that I have tried this and really love it but only in certain things. Good uses-smoothies, yogurt or mixed with vanilla soy milk are probably my favorite. Basically I find it works really well in cold food items. Things like oatmeal where the PB melts well-I prefer the real thing. Also in a sandwich I don't think this works well. I uses it a lot for my kids who are PB junkies. They love it on any cereal-they will even eat the Kashi 7 grain puffs if I sprinkle this on top<img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> The biggest problem I have is several of my kids friends have peanut allergies and this stuff is like a dust. It makes me really nervous having theses kids in my house. Even a trace amount on the counters where I'm preparing something for them could be a huge issue. Good luck and I'm going to start trying it in some cookie recipes-I'll try and post if I come up with anything good. Edited to add-I also use the Justin's nut butters in the link in the above post. The individual servings are great I always have a stash of these for swim meets or baseball games. The honey one is everyone's favorite.

I GOT IT!!!!!!!!!!<br><br>
I just got it in the mail at work and IT IS AWESOME!! I mixed up one small amount (1 tbs?) and ate it with the spoon. It is soooooooo good. the texture is very slightly off, but i bet if you did not tell me and put it in a sandwich i would never know.

I wouldn't mind trying this to put in oatmeal or to bake with. Unfortunately for me, real PB (aka fresh ground ala Whole Foods) is like crack to me. I break down every so often and buy some, I tell myself I will not overeat it. It never works. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

So, i have put it on toast, put it on english muffins, DH ate it in a PB&J sandwich and i made the cool whip dessert/froz PB cups with it. YUMMY.<br><br>
The good thing is, it is a powder, so you cannot actually devour it out of the container. There is a bit more effort involved <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

I tally'ed up all the ingredients and divided by 12 (twelve servings per batch) and i got 63 calories per serving. I used a bit more PB2 though than the recipe. DO NOT use Hershey's sugar free syrup, it is vomitous, use the Light one.

I haven't used my PB2 for anything except peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, and I reallllllllllllly like it. It has a fresher, lighter texture than regular peanut butter, still quite peanutty tasting.
