Today while shopping for a client I stumbled upon this pretty packaging. I like peanut butter, I love coconut and I LOVE chocolate so I bought it.
I spend a lot of time in grocery stores. Honestly, I probably visit Harris Teeter, Trader Joes, Whole Foods and Safeway once a week. As a bit of a health food whore, I get excited by Non GMO & USDA Organic stamps on packaging pretty packaging.
Today we are talking about Wild Friends brand Chocolate Coconut Peanut Butter. First of all, it tastes like heaven without out all the added sugar. The ingredients are simple and natural: Peanuts, Coconut, Organic Agave, Unsweetened Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt. I bet your mouth is watering. You will find only 5 grams of sugar in a serving compared to Nutella’s 21 grams. The taste is natural and rich. It is the savory kind of sweet that I crave.
We are talking gluten free, dairy free, vegan, Kosher and Non GMO. Peanuts generally pack a fair amount of GMOs.
The protein content comes in at 6 grams, which is pretty dang good for what I would consider a dessert. Nutella only has 2 grams of protein. The nutrition facts are pretty comparable to an organic peanut butter. You will notice there is a slightly higher saturated fat in Wild Friends. That is due to the coconut. Coconut is high in saturated fat but it is one of those healthy fats our bodies thrive on.
So would I buy this product again? ABSOLUTELY. I will probably have to buy it soon because I don’t think this jar is going to last all too long. Five Stars. I would give it six but I only have five to give.
