Don’t Buy This

Whatever you do, don’t buy this stuff!!

Whip it goodI saw this in the grocery store and thought, huh – I should eat more protein and fat in the form of peanut butter, and need a little something different to eat with crackers when I need a tide-me-over snack and looky! (It probably didn’t help that I was shopping with a bordering-on-low-blood-sugar. That never helps with making smart buying choices.)

This stuff is *whipped* and  even has a smidgeon of chocolate in it. Perfect for when you just need a teeny bit of sugary goodness, and don’t want to go overboard on something that is more of a no-no.

One taste and I was hooked. The serving size is 2 tablespoons. Good luck ONLY having that amount on your crackers, strawberries, pretzel sticks, banana sandwich, etc. It was all I could do not to empty half the container at it’s first opening.

MmmmFor those curious, there is the nutrition information. Not the absolute *worst* thing in the world for you (but the calories….WAY TOO MANY CALORIES.) To be safe, just don’t buy it. You’ll thank me for this recommendation later.

  1. Have you ever tried Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter? (And it’s cousin, Cookie Butter with Chocolate?) Somehow it keeps showing up in my pantry. And… I keep eating it.

    • Shut the front door. It sounds amazing. And I like Trader Joe’s stuff WAY better than the regular grocery store, but it’s a little farther away so I don’t get there as often. And when I do go there, I buy so many delicious things already…..(note to self: seek out this “cookie butter.”)

  2. I totally agree with Jen about the Cookie Butter. I always have some around! And it’s not like I’m overindulging because most of the time I can have a spoonful and I’m good =)

  3. I am so glad my son was diagnosed with celiac RIGHT AFTER I met that speculoos cookie butter at Trader Joe’s.

    And thanks for the warning about this whip. I won’t buy it, but I might hope to go to a house where there is some.
