Review: Bell Plantation Chocolate PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter

Being that November is National Peanut Butter Lovers Month, it's only fitting that we have this review....

If you remember from my first PB2 review, Bell Plantation also has a chocolate version of their powered peanut butter.  When I made my initial PB2 purchase, I purchased a combo pack and this chocolate version came along as well.  Thinking of a chocolate flavored peanut butter seemed like a sin in my mind and I was just drooling in anticipation of receiving this.

Much like the regular version, there's no point wasting much space talking about the texture as I normally would.  It's a powder (see the powder in the picture as I did a bad job mixing it) and that's basically it.  It differs from the original PB2 as it is a little darker because of the chocolate flavoring, but that's about the only difference.

Taste wise, I would give it the same review as the regular PB2 as well.  Unfortunately, this is not a good thing in this case as it is supposed to taste like a chocolate version of peanut butter.  Maybe my expectations were too high, but the chocolate flavor in this one was barely noticeable and that made me quite sad.  It still works as a peanut butter, albeit one that tastes slightly different, but if you are looking for something sinful, look somewhere else.

Buy It or Fly By It?  BUY IT.  After my first taste, I was already to give this a poor rating, but a time later, I gave this stuff another shot and my opinion was entirely different.  This stuff is truly unbelievable in a good way.  It's a nice peanut butter taste with a slight chocolate twinge.  Frankly, my thought on my second time eating this was "Reese's Cup" and being that is one of America's most popular candies, that just shows that they've done this one right.  It's a bit expensive, especially now after the bad peanut crop that we've had this year, but totally worth it.

  1. Good review. Fortunately it is available through Fred Meyer (Kroger) stores with all the regular peanut butter. It is a dieting fat-girls non-sinful sin. Like a Reese's Peanut Butter milkshake without the guilt.
