Pacific Beach Peanut Butter Flavors Review

The company is called Pacific Beach Peanut Butter and is located in California and they have some really awesome flavored Peanut Butters that I know you are going to love. They have several tempting flavors and I got to try 3 of them:

1. White Chocolate Peanut Butter
2. Touch of Carmel Peanut Butter
3. Toffee Peanut Butter

Their peanut butter products are GLUTEN FREE and made with 100% Valencia peanuts! All of the jars are 9 ozs. and are filled by hand. The other flavors that they have that I did not get to try sound just as scrumptious:

1. Butterscotch Peanut Butter
2. Child's Play (made with M&M's) Peanut Butter
3. Chocolate Peanut Butter
4. Chocolate Raspberry Peanut Butter
5. Organic Peanut Butter
6. Unsalted Organic Peanut Butter
7. CinnaYum Peanut Butter

Don't they all sound fascinating? I know what would make my husband's day and that is if he could somehow make a Banana Flavored Peanut Butter. Yep, that's what I said! My husband quashes bananas and mixes it all up with peanut butter into it is a like spread and eats those as sandwiches all the time! Sure could save on getting bananas because if you don't eat those quick, they get brown spots and spoil. So, you can't keep them stocked up like most other foods.

I have to tell you that we really loved the Toffee Peanut Butter the best of the three that we got to review. It's like a Peanut Butter with a crunch! Every time I would bite down on my cracker you could hear the crunchy toffee and then the flavors would explodes! Of course, I even ate some right out of the jar with the spoon.

Here's what they say about their Toffee Peanut Butter:

Our SIGNATURE SPREAD! You don't need to be a toffee lover to fall in love with this flavor. Our Toffee Peanut Butter Spread is like nothing you've ever tasted before! It's Peanut Butter with a crunch....perfect with crackers, fruit, a spoon, and of course, ice cream. Use it in your favorite recipes to give them a touch of toffee flavor!

Now, our second favorite was the White Chocolate Peanut Butter. Very subtle and not at all like a Chocolate Peanut Butter. Now, I haven't had theirs but I have had other's and you can definitely tell it is more Chocolate than anything else. But not with this one, it is like and tastes just right!
Oh, and one thing that they did different with this one was that they whipped it so it's soft like butter, not hard like organic Peanut Butters. I know if you have ever ate Natural or Organic Peanut Butter you know what I mean. Organic Peanut Butters are thicker than the kind you buy in the store. But not this one, it's as fluffy as whipped butter!
Here is what they say about their White Chocolate Peanut Butter:

Whipped & Fluffy! If white chocolate satisfies your passion for chocolate, this Peanut Butter Spread is about to amaze you! It's a peanut buttery taste with a kick of white chocolate. A marriage made to last. Try it with pretzels. Ohhhhhhhh soooooo gooood!

Lastly, we tried the Touch of Caramel Peanut Butter.

This one had the darkest color and I am not sure why because I didn't think Caramel Peanut Butter would be dark but I guess if it's homemade it might be different than the caramels you buy in the store. I could not really taste the Caramel but it was a heavier and more crunchier Peanut Butter than the other three.

I may have gotten thrown off because of the crunchy stuff, not sure. Mike wouldn't even try it. He said he liked the first 2 and didn't want to ruin the taste of trying another one.  He's sort of weird, huh?

As you can see, it is darker and it does look like it has Caramel in it but I just couldn't taste it. It might just have been me thinking it would have a stronger taste. Maybe it's suppose to be more subtle.

Here is what they say about their Caramel Peanut Butter:

Our Founder's Favorite! We consider this our TRADITIONAL spread. For all the PB lovers looking for just a hint of sweetness. Yummmmmm!

They have their Peanut Butter's in several sizes such as the 9 oz size and the 4 lb. tub. Now, that is a lot of Peanut Butter! I bet Mike could really go to town making Peanut Butter and Banana sandwiches with that much in the house! They also have what they call the Gift of A Jar which is pictured below:
Pacific Peanut Butter's description of a Gift of a Jar:
Wanna Spoon? Of course you do... and your friends do too! Attending a party? Need a Hostess Gift? Teacher Gift? Give the Gift of a Jar! You're sure to be a hit with the recipient when you give them the Gift of a Jar of our yummy best selling Toffee Flavored Peanut Butter with a silver PB Peanut Butter spoon attached. What a lovely memento of the West Coast!
They also have several other ways to give their Peanut Butter's as gifts:
1. Bundle of Love - All Occasion Gift Set (your choice of 3 flavors)
2. Peanut Butter Lover's Gift Set - I will let you go see for yourself, it has a lot in it!
3. You can get 6 months of a Flavor of the Month or 12 months of Flavor of the Month
They even have a Peanut Butter Fun Facts section and I grabbed a few and you can go check out the rest yourself.
**A 12-ounce jar of peanut butter has about 540 peanuts inside.
**Peanuts have even traveled to the moon! Astronauts have carried peanut butter "space sticks" on their missions.
**800 million pounds of peanut butter are purchased EACH YEAR!
**George Washington Carver, a famous African American Scientist, came up with over 200 uses for peanuts.
I really enjoyed reading the owner's story of how the company got started but due to limited space, I did not copy all of it, so please go and see the parts I left for you to read on your own. You will find it under About Us:
I’ll never forget the day I received my first peanut grinder. The fun truly began as the kitchen became my office and playpen. Trying different combinations to come up with the perfect All Natural Peanut Butter - and then adding my favorite flavors to it - gave me this unbelievable sense of joy. The spread combinations just kept getting better and better! I quit my unsatisfying job and moved back into my parent’s house so I could (save money!) and focus my time and energy on flavor creations. And it worked!

Many jars were tasted by many friends to create the perfect balance of flavoring. My friends began begging for samples as they had never tasted anything quite like it! They loved it so much they were eating it right from the jar with a spoon! (That explains our tag line, right?)

I'm a go-getter and love to talk to people but not the best when it comes to details. Knowing that businesses fail when a 'big picture' guy tries to handle all the small stuff (and since my Mom is an executive assistant), we (and a chunk of private investor cash!) decided to go into the peanut butter business together. We decided that I would launch this great new product in Pacific Beach……and well, here we are!  
We have the best tasting All Natural Peanut Butter and quite a few phenomenal Flavored Peanut Butter Spreads. We use only the highest quality ingredients... from the peanuts... to the chocolate... to the cinnamon... everything! Oh, and every jar is MADE BY big run-of-the-mill manufacturing plants here! I knew that to have the best taste, we had to keep our standards high and I wanted to ensure that our Peanut Butter and Spreads were like no others.

These Peanut Butters sound so delicious! I think that the Toffee Peanut Butter would be my favorite but they all sound so good I'm not sure!
