Archer Farms All Natural Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Spread Review

Archer Farms All Natural Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter SpreadPeanut butter is a staple in this household because it's creamy, delicious & makes for a darn tasty (and quick) sandwich, not to mention high in protein and healthy fats (as long as you don't use too much). But alas, when you have to scrape off the last little bit from the sides and the bottom, it means it's time to add peanut butter to your shopping list. As I stood in Target staring at the vast array of nut butters, I decided to try the decadent sounding Target brand, Archer Farms All Natural Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Spread.

I am already a big fan of the chocolate-peanut butter combo; Erin Baker's Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Breakfast Cookie and So Delicious Dairy Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Frozen Dessert are 2 mouth-watering examples. Archer Farms' Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Spread is nothing different. F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S! The taste is comparable to dumping a whole bag of Reeses cups into a blender and blending until smooth and creamy.

Each 2 Tablespoon serving provides 180 calories, 20% of the daily value for total fat and 15% for saturated fats, which is slightly less than a few other natural peanut butters, because some of the peanuts are replaced by the remaining ingredients: sugar, cocoa liquor, molasses and pure vanilla. There is also 6 grams of protein, 10% of the daily value for fiber and7 grams of sugars. The sugar is more than what's in plain peanut butters such as Naturally More and Skippy's All Natural Peanut Butters.

A 12 oz jar of Archer Farms All Natural Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Spread costs $3.99, which to me was worth every penny. This is not to replace your everyday peanut butter staple; but as a special treat, Archer Farms All Natural Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Spread is my new exceptional find. Of course, with peanut butter, you really have to watch portion control. I would say no more than 1 tablespoon in anything - and that includes on those peanut butter & jelly sandwiches.
