Favorite Peanut Butter Treats? (Pasadena area)

I'm on the hunt for peanut butter or peanut butter and chocolate treats for my husband. I normally bake, but haven't had time to in ages.

Any hidden or not so hidden favorites in any local bakeries, stores, etc?

      If I remember correctly, Pie 'n Burger has Peanut Butter Meringue every other day. On the alternate days they have Butterscotch Meringue. Best to call ahead.

    2. Choco-pbutter cupcake at Lovebirds Bakery is pretty good. How about a Peanut Butter and Banana or Peanut Butter and Chocolate Shake at Connal's burgers?

      1. Dots has PB & Banana cupcakes as well as chocobutter and I know Violet's Cakes has peanut butter chocolate cupcakes and elvis cupcakes. I find the latter's store hours to be rather inconvenient though!

        1. Somebody gave me a Peanut Butter Chewy Coated & Drizzled Granola Bar from Trader Joe's. Not bad at all.

            Also at TJ's: the dark chocolate peanut butter cups, which will make you swear off Reese's forever.

            As for other local PB treats, the new Mix n' Munch in South Pasadena has an Elvis Sandwich: peanut butter, bacon and banana. Disgusting in the right sorta way...

          2. sometime over the summer i had the most amazing chocolate peanut butter pie/cake from Auntie Em's in eagle rock. Call and see if they still make it. it was out of this world delish!
