“ Brand: Sainsbury's / Type: Peanut Butter „
It seems that to make up for less fat, a heap of artificial sweeteners have been added to this product, a not uncommon practice by food manufacturers.This product was so disgusting that I took Sainsbury's up on their money back guarantee and bought some normal peanut butter instead.
Sainsbury's Be Good to Yourself range
SMOOTH PEANUT BUTTER.
Well what with Christmas just coming upon us too quickly and having already piled on a few pounds what with the excuse of it being winter, and needing a little bit of body fat, have decided to try a few products from the be good to yourself rangte from my local Sainsbury's.
This Jar of Smooth Peanut Butter, not only looks good it smells good and spreads good, and i am not much for all those lumps of peanut butter that stuck between my teeth.
This Jar comes in a three hundred and forty grams, so you do get quite a bit for your money at a mere £1.39p its good value for money.
The Jar is recyclable and is easy to twist open, and easy to reseal, and i must admit that it tastes really quite good.
I tend to enjoy this spread on crumpets and toast as a snack during the evening, and do love a peanut butter sandwich too, as long as it is fresh crusty bread, that it is spread on, and what with this being thirty three per cent lower fat than the normal peanut butter, must admit that i do like to think that i am doing my little bit without piling on the pounds what with Christmas creeping up and we all tend to over inndulge anyway, nice to be ready for it this year.
Well I have been trying the Be Good to Yourself Range, as have seen a few of their adverts and so thought i would sample a few of their products, and i think that this is really good, the peanut butter, whilst tasting of peanut butter, tends to be slightly less fatty than the usual brands i have tried, and spreads lovely, i like mine on crumpets, and it is quite a nice tasting peanut butter.
It is also suitable for vegetrians, and being low fat think it is a good tasting spread, makes a change for me for the usual jar of jam, or marmite that usually goes upon my toast.
The serving suggestion on the jar shows a picture of this product spread upon a crumpet thats where i got the idea from as i dont usually buy crumpets that often thought the two go well together.
I will be buying this again.
Thanks for reading and rating my reviews x
I really do love peanut butter but I'm more than a little bit aware that it's a very bad habit regarding my waistline! However I'm more than a little addicted to the stuff and love nothing more than simply standing in my kitchen with a tub of it in my grip and a teaspoon much to other people in my households disgust!
The other day I saw this low fat version of my favourite and decided it had to be a worth a go. I wasn't thinking of how many calories I could save myself actually. No. I was thinking more along the lines of how much I could consume of the stuff to my usual and I could theoretically eat more it lol. Yep warped way of thinking but an honest one lol.
340g glass see-through jar with a dark blue plastic twist on/off lid to the top of it. Around the middle of the jar there is a white and blue label. On the front of said label there is a photograph of the peanut butter and I'm told it is Sainsbury's '33% less fat' Smooth Peanut Butter, that it's suitable for Vegetarians, and the weight is stated. To the sides of the label ingredients, allergy advice, storage details, nutritional information and contact details for Sainsbury's are given and finally there is a bar-code on there. Nice enough, informative easy to open jar this is.
The Peanut Butter Itself:
Light brown and slightly set. As soon as you open the jar your hit by a naturally sweet smelling roasted peanut smell. This is easy to spread and smooth in consistency as promised on the jar. The more you use it though the more it loses that quite stiff at first consistency it possesses though it never becomes runny and what I do appreciate with this particular peanut butter is that even when putting it on hot/warm food stuff (such as toast or bagels) it doesn't melt and holds it's own very well.
Taste wise well it's as nutty as any peanut butter I've ever tasted in the past. However it does lack the usual feeling of grease and isn't as oily as many others I have used in the but it doesn't lack the flavour but what I do feel that Sainsbury's have done to make up for that is heap in a whole load of sugar in it! Yes it's too sweet for me sadly. A little of this is enough for me and that sugar I feel really does leave a weird after-taste after I've consumed some and I can detect the granules as I consume it which grates on my teeth and is a really odd sensation!
If you like slightly sticky and sweet peanut butter then by all means try this. If you don't, then don't bother. However it isn't greasy, is a somewhat healthy alternative to many peanut butter offerings on the market and is easy to spread!
