Pb2: Powdered Peanut Butter: Lower In Fat And Calories; Just Add Water And Mix.



It is beginning to appear on store shelves everywhere. My sister learned about it at a Weight Watcher's meeting from someone who would buy it out of town. After asking local stores to stock it, it started showing up in our hometown. It's lower in fat and calories, easy to mix up, and tastes good. Much better than Better'n Peanut Butter substitute made from who knows what and tastes terrible. We made a low calore peanut butter pie from using it. It was delicious. Good on toast!

More Information:

I typed in PB2 but when I posted the secret it shows up as Pb2 in the title. I don't know why.

  • It's at Price Chopper, if you have that grocery in your area. Yum! - by CLAIREMC65
    I looked at this online and it looked like a good price until they added $11.00 for ground shipping. That adds $2.75 a jar to the minimum order of 4 jars. I will pass unless I find it in the store. I wanted to send a jar to my kid in Afghanistan because it would last better than the real PB in the heat. - by RONIH2O
  • Order it from the mfgr & save a ton of $. Here in CA, it's about $8 per jar, nearly double the list price from the site. It also comes in chocolate! YUM! I LVOE it! - by JUNEAU2010
    Kroger has it. - by LUCKYDOG001
  • I just found PB2 at Walmart! I'd never heard of it before but I love peanut butter and 10 calorie/TBSP sugar free preserves sandwiches on Nature's own 40 calorie honey wheat bread as my night time snack. I was using 1/2 TBSP of peanut butter so I'd only be eating 45 calories but with PB2, I can either have a full serving (2 TBSP) of peanut butter for the same calories or I can cut my snack calories even lower if I don't have much wiggle room in my remaining calories for the day! I am SO thrilled with PB2!!! And I can't tell much difference between PB2 and Great Value's peanut butter in a jar. - by SASSYSAPPHIRES
    I like the PB2 with chocolate version...sort of like a melted Reese cup, good for candy craving. I liked the PB2 regular as an Apple Dip, as better than none, but not really the same as peanut butter, but given I have trouble with portion control with real peanut butter, this one serves a good purpose. - by MIGARDENER
  • I just tried it this morning and LOVED it!! Mixed up so easy and I just dipped some apples in it. - by KKFRENCHY
  • Might be good to lessen the weight of the pack on hiking trips. Gotta check if they have this in Canada! - by SEAWAVE
  • I tried it and hated it! I thought it tasted vile!
    Oh well, each to his/her own taste... - by JRBASKIND
  • and it is so worth the price even with shipping! - by NENATO2
    This is absolutely wonderful stuff! Saves us tons of calories...I need to order more :) - by DENI_ZEN
  • I have used PB2 for several years as adding flavor to vanilla yogurt. At only 57 calories a serving, adding protein and flavor is easy with PB2. I also add it to stirfry instead of sugary sauces and to my Cheerios with my home made trail mix (that I also use the PB2 in. Also try adding the PB2 to the Weightwatcher recipe for chocolate muffins using a chocolate cake mix, a can of pumpkin and 2-3 tables spoons to the mix.
    I do not use it as peanut butter as I prefer the natural peanut butter from the jar at the store.
    But to add flavor, protein without the calories and fat, I give PB2 an A+. emoticon - by DLPATTISON
    I've never heard of it before but you can bet I'll be looking for it.

    but wouldn't peanut oil (fat) be at least relatively healthy (like soybean oil/fat)? Or nut oils? - by KAKIPOPUP
  • I want to try this too! - by GRAMMAALI
  • I can't wait to find this and try it out! I love peanut butter, but could do without some of the fat. Thanks for the tip! - by SNARDEESNIFF
