User food review: Mr. Peanut is Made Into Butter!

Visit foodreview101.com for more food reviews, and new product details!

I guess it was only a matter of time before Mr. Peanut put his face on the front of a jar of peanut butter, because everyone knows that he has graced the front of nearly every single package of peanut related products for decades now. The company has recently introduced its new line of peanut butter that comes in both creamy and crunchy to please every picky palate out there. Many companies are producing more peanut butter than ever and the competition for peanut butter is more intense than ever with more companies opting for a healthier version without the added oils, salt, and sugar; as well as the addition of different types of nut butters. Would Mr. Peanut be able to take control of the competitive peanut butter market or crack under the pressure?

Many people already have a favorite brand of peanut butter that they grew up with, and since Planter's is marketed towards adults you have to wonder how they are going to be able to crack the market. The taste has a strong peanut flavor to it which could be expected from Planters, however the taste of the overall product is a little too sweet which can be seen on the ingredients list with sugar being the second ingredient. The consistency of the creamy peanut butter is pretty smooth, which is easy enough to achieve if you have enough oil in the product as this one does with hydrogenated oils as the third ingredient. The bottom line is that if you were to even think about changing peanut butters at this time in your life (yea right) and didn't care about how healthy the peanut butter was (this isn't) then this could be an option for you. Overall (2 out of 5).

The pros are that it has a strong peanut flavor, and the consistency is smooth.

The cons are that it's a little too sweet, has some trans fat in it, and it's not what you grew up with.
