Lovely creamy peanut butter chocolate made with real peanut butter, swirled with our semi-sweet chocolate to create a melt in your mouth sweet sensation, leaving behind the delicious taste of peanut butter. This is a must try for peanut butter lovers.
Packed in re-sealable pouches that can be re-used before cleaning and putting into soft plastic recycling. Batches are broken by hand into assorted sized pieces.
Peanut Butter is a staple of many kitchen pantries and, unless you have a nut allergy, you're bound to have tried the spread at least once. I have two out of three kids who love peanut butter but all three were keen to give this a try when I informed them it was a type of lolly. We all agreed that we like the picture of the pohutakawa that's on the front and they all agreed that being able to see what was inside made them more interested in trying it than if they'd couldn't see it. My girls both said that the bark looks beautiful and like how the chocolate is swirled around, not just straight and boring.
My ten year tried some and didn't like it at all, to be fair, he doesn't like peanut butter to begin with, but he wanted to give it a chance. My nine year old says she loves it, she thought the peanut butter aspect of it was so good but she didn't really like the chocolate aspect, so was happy that the chocolate isn't the main component, the good thing though it that she would happily, very readily, eat more and more. My seven year likes the entire confection and things they go really well together. I was curious to see that white chocolate is listed as an ingredient but there's no visible proof of this... so I'm unsure how it comes into the product. This reminds me of crunch peanut butter with small chunks throughout, a nice change to the texture.
I found this to be a bit too rich for my tastes but I think for a peanut butter fan this would be a fabulous treat.
A few years ago a mate gave me a taste of some Peanut Marble he got to review and it was stunning. Smooth, tasty, rich, creamy. And then it was gone, the company closed up shop and left the retail arena behind to focus on contract work like weddings and events. Fair enough too, as they stated it was very expensive and time consuming to make profitably for retail markets.
Fashion goes in cycles, and it seems this is now fashionable again because this company has now started to produce a product I think is just as good, if not slightly better than the previous version. A bit chunkier, less regular shapes, blobs of milk chocolate to break up the texture, but still plenty of the smooth creamy chocolate packed with peanut butter flavour. Sold in a resealable bag, these are easy for me to keep tucked away out of sight of my team mates, who, being big burly lads and lasses who would appreciate the sugar boost if nothing else, would eat the entire packet faster than I could stop them.
Each bag is 150g of pure delight, and would easily be a single serve for an average road crew worker, but will keep a family satisfied for the length of a good movie if they could resist the urge to cram it all into their mouths in an instant.
I loved the flavour and texture, but even though this is hand-crafted and made in batches, it's still an expensive treat for the average person. If you have a special occassion coming up or want to really impress someone, this would be a great thing to try, unless they have issues with dairy or nuts of course.
Would I buy a bag for myself? In a heartbeat. But I wouldn't do it too often for many reasons.
