hi all.

my jars of PB2 came today and i was very, very pleasantly suprised. you mix two TBspoon of the powder with one TBspoon of water. i mixed up a whole bunch and brought it to my WW meeting tonight with a bunch of spoons and EVERYONE ( about 10 people ) said it is GREAT, "for what it is". it is 1 point for 2 TBspoons. i would highly recommend this for anyone who is trying to watch their weight but love peanut butter.

      I've been looking for WEEKS for a peanut butter alternative and came across this site. Where can I purchase this PB2? What is the nutritional information on it? I have an incredible sweet tooth, and if I indulged it everyday, I'd weigh 600 pounds. I try to satisfy my cravings with the least amount of calories possible. Don't even ask me for my chocolate buttercream recipe lol.

        I also ordered PB2 and tried it out this past weekend. As a peanut butter lover I am quite pleased with this product. I can see it being used in things like peanut sauce or even sprinkled over ice cream. It's been fun experimenting with the stuff.

          I ordered 4 jars and they arrived promptly.
          Following the advice on the jar label, I reconstituted it by mixing the powder directly with apricot jam.

          Heavenly.

          I dunno, I'm pretty skeptical of this one. I've tried the Better n'Butter product that Trader Joe's has that EVERYONE was raving about and it was horrid. Really? This is good? Good enough to eat by itself on a peice of toast?

            Good point! I've been really tempted to order some PB2, but I seriously, seriously disliked Better n'Butter. Tasted nothing like PB to me.

            What say those who have tried both?? Is PB2 like Better n'Butter? Or does it actually taste something like real PB?

              I agree about the Better n' Butter p-butter product--not very good. BUT, this PB2 stuff--VERY GOOD! It has that authentic peanutty flavor because it's made with real peanuts! I'm not sure of the ingreds in the other product but I know what you mean, it sort of had that weird, artificial and overly sweet taste to it.
              And yes, I have been eating it straight up, after mixing with a little liquid, as well as smearing it on some bread. Definitely give it a try. I'm already thinking of ordering some more!

                Ok, I am giving it a go. Just ordered some today and I *have* tried better n' Butter, which I convinced myself I liked (due to the high price---it's $5.99 here) but I thought it was kinda icky. I will post my take on it....

              I ordered pb2 over 2 weeks ago from Bell Planation, when I checked the status, it says it the order is still being "processed" I sent an email and have gotten no response. They already put the charge through. Could someone tell me how long it should take to recieve?

                It took 7 days exactly for my order to arrive. It came via Fed Ex ground. I remember hearing that the demand for it was pretty overwhelming so maybe they're short on supply? Still though, the company needs to respond back to your email. Is there a customer service # you can call?

                  wow, i had no idea about this product! thanks to hounds here i am totally excited about returning to the world of peanut butter!!! i too have tried to like (convinced myself for alittle while...) the better n butter product...too sweet. just want straight pbutter with less cals and carbs yknow? in a perfect world...

                  please continue to report on the quality.

                  also, on their site, the ingredient information for their sugar-free product is messed up - you click on it and there is nothing...:(

                I've been mixing peanut butter with nonfat Greek-style (strained) yogurt at about a 1:2 ratio (one teaspoon peanut butter to two teaspoons yogurt). It's surprisingly good -- tastes like peanut butter but with a bit of a tang. I don't do WW, but from what I know of the point system, I would guess it would also be about one point for two tablespoons (depending on your peanut butter and yogurt, somewhere between 30 and 40 calories a tablespoon). And of course you get a little more protein and some calcium to boot.

                  Mine finally came a few weeks ago. It is really good! I have so far used it in soy milk for my cereal, in my oatmeal, and I made my own concoction with soft tofu, PB2, and splenda and whipped it up. Gotta say it was worth the (LOOOOONG) time it took to get to me!

                    Bell Plantation, that makes PB2 is launching an affiliate program. They don't have any info on their main site yet and from what I understand they're rolling it out slow. Go to www.powderedpeanutbutter.com to get some more info. It seems like it could be a good opportunity to make some money referring this stuff being as it is a pretty new product. I love this stuff! My favorite way to use it is mixed up in some sugar free cool whip! I have been trying all the recipes one by one. I think I'm addicted! lol

                    I looked at the Bell Plantation website and I don't quite get it. What makes reconstituted PB2 any better or less caloric than real peanut butter? I saw their nutritional guide for it and it looks like it's for the powder, so I don't know how to convert that to the reconstituted product. Also, there's a faq question asking if they're going to have a sugar-free PB2. What's sugar doing in peanut butter anyway?
