Justin’s


This is a super quick post done at….about 1:30…am.  I was out grocery shopping the other day and was looking at new foods to try (because that’s something I just love to do) and I came across this.  I’m not a fan of peanut butter, but in trying to eat healthier things (on occasion, lol) I decided to give it a try.  At first I was going to venture out and buy a whole jar of one flavor, but just as I decided not to I saw the sample packets.  What other excuse did I have not to try?  Not one.

I used a wheat cracker I found at the same store and this is how I feel about it in short:

peanut butter  Rich and thick.  It was definitely better than the peanut butter I’ve had over the years, but I still gave it to Aerie.

 

honey peanut butter  Slightly better than the plain peanut butter.  I won’t say I noticed a honey flavor so much as it was just sweeter.  I also gave this to Aerie.

 

almond butter  I’ve never had almond butter before so I was excited about it.  I do like it better than peanut butter and I kinda felt like I was eating my cereal because it has almonds in it.  I gave this to Aerie, too.

 

maple almond butter  This was better than the plain almond butter.  I wouldn’t say maple exactly, but there was a noticeable difference in the flavor.  Aerie didn’t get this one…immediately.  She’ll probably be finishing it in the morning.

 

chocolate hazelnut butter   Now for the one I had been waiting to try.  Of all of them, this is the one I figured I could buy the large container and not regret it.  I’m glad I didn’t.  To be honest I was expecting it to taste like nutella.  What did it taste like?  Exactly what it said: hazelnut butter with chocolate.  Too much hazelnut and not enough chocolate.  lol  Aerie won’t get this one though because I love her.  Disclaimer: I wouldn’t give a dog I don’t love chocolate either.  Relax.

It seems that each one I tried got progressively better, but I didn’t really like any of them so I’m happy I didn’t take this food risk.  Or rather that I took the less expensive version.  If you haven’t tried Justin’s I’m sure you’d like this is you like peanut butter.  Keep in mind this is a review from someone who doesn’t and was trying something they haven’t eaten in a long time.  In the meantime, check out all my social links below!  Note: I’d love a nutella recipe if you have one.  🙂

I’m all over the web!
