I have my phases. Sometimes it’s bread and peanut butter. Sometimes its’ our local sweet rich kaya.
At times I’m only spreading fruit jams on my bread.
But I’ll always have a jar of peanut butter in my fridge. Because nothing can beat the satisfying taste of thick, roasty, sweet salty peanut butter on the tongue.
And because nothing makes a plain slice of toast better!
Yes, I love my peanut butter.
Over the years I have collected and sampled peanut butter from most brands available in Malaysia. Jif, Peter Pan, Adam’s, P & Co, Sanitarium, you name it I’ve tried them.
When I’m on my travels, I shop for peanut butter in the supermarkets.
In Hong Kong I managed to bag this bottle of Soy Butter Spread which taste exactly like peanut butter but with not even a sliver of nut in it!
And I swear, it taste exactly like peanut butter. It even has the chunky nutty bits!
How did they manage that I have no idea!
Recently Malaysia has budding entrepreneurs that makes their own brand of peanut butter. I tested out Joey’s Peanut Butter and I have to say that while it’s good, it lacked the intense nutty flavour that I love. Which is precisely why most local or Asian brand PB never could quite satisfy me.
It’s American PB or nothing else.
But here’s one from the Netherlands that was really good too. I got this during my Europe trip in 2012.
Having said that, the Nuts Enough spreads got me totally hooked. In fact I may not have to buy any other commercial brand PB again!
My favourite is the Honey Almond Spread (RM 25) which is quite drippy but has a wonderful toast-y almond aroma. Nuts Enough offers another with maple syrup and scented with cinnamon.
Dark Chocolate Cashew Spread (RM 25).
Chocolate lovers take note! This is where both chocolate and nuts came together in balanced harmony. The use of cashew gave a milder nut flavour and hence the chocolate taste is more pronounced.
This is sexy smooth, dark, strong and pleasure on the tongue. 😀
Cookie Dough Cashew Spread (RM 25).
This reminds me of runny chocolate chip cookie cake batter and it’s understandably thicker. I enjoyed this as much on a toast/cracker as shoving spoonfuls of it into my mouth on a stressful workday. 😀
