I never had peanut butter as a kid, and always assumed I didn’t like it (although I liked peanuts). In fact I only tried it for the first time fairly recently, maybe a couple of years ago. And then I realised I’d been missing out for all those years.
We don’t actually keep it in the house because neither of us can be trusted not to eat it straight out of the jar with a spoon, and that’s the kind of calorific behaviour that can get out of hand quickly!
No wonder then that I was drawn to two sweet peanut-y things lately that I just have to tell you about.
Ben & Jerry’s peanut butter cup ice cream
I’m sure this has been around for ages, but I’ve never seen it before. I’m not a big ice cream eater but when I spotted these little cups I thought I’d buy a couple. Wowsers. Creamy ice cream with a salty sweetness and little chewy peanut butter cups running all the way through. Delish.
Cadbury’s salted peanut crunch fingers
More wowsers. Bearing in mind that chocolate fingers are right up there with my fave biscuits, and that I can eat a whole packet in one sitting, these were never going to last long. They’re sweet without being sickly, with just the right amount of salty kick. Yum.
Do yourself a favour and try one or both of these if you get chance.
You can thank me later!
