PB Crave Review & Giveaway!

Hey everyone! Welcome to another review.
Yes, this is sponsored. Meaning, I received the below mentioned products for free in exchange for a review. However, the opinions mentioned below are completely mine and 100% honest. I am under no obligation to write a positive review and I wouldn't accept a job that would require me to.
So, with that settled, let's get started shall we?

I got the opportunity to try PB Crave and I was really excited. I have seen these reviews on other blogs and those bloggers seemed to really LOVE it, so I wanted to try these peanut butters so bad. And, now I am!

I'm going to start with CoCo Bananas. The first thing I noticed when I peeled off the protective layer was that the peanut butter was separated, so I took my knife and mixed it up. It was pretty easy to mix and after the mixing, I saw that it was very creamy & seemed a bit more runny/thin than I'm used to. It wasn't that big of a deal though. The second thing I noticed was the scent. It had a really strong banana scent, kind of like that car wax (? is that what it was?) you put on the inside of your car. I'm not really sure how to explain it. Behind that banana scent was the scent of peanut butter. After I had mixed it, I spread some of it on a piece of bread and took a bite. It was very smooth and spread on easily. It wasn't too salty and like all the other peanut butters I've tried, stuck to the roof of my mouth. But the taste wasn't something I really liked. I felt like the banana flavor & smell were a bit too strong and just tasted really fake. Overall, I just didn't like it all that much. I won't say whether to buy it or not though because everyone's tastes are different, so you should give it a try before judging for yourself. I'm just going to say that in my opinion, I wouldn't buy it.

Next, Razzle Dazzle. Like the CoCo Bananas, this one was also separated and required some mixing. It was much thicker than CoCo Bananas and it was a bit hard to mix up. The scent of it was also really strong. It did smell like raspberries, but not like fresh raspberries. It smelled more like the overly sweet candy smelling kind, if you know what I mean. There was a slight peanut buttery scent behind it though. There also seemed to be chunks of white chocolate & raspberry something at the bottom, but I'm not really sure what they were. There weren't any actual chunks, so I'm assuming that it was some sort of flavoring technique (?). I'm honestly not sure. Like the CoCo Bananas, I spread some of it on a piece of bread and took a bite. The taste was interesting. The raspberry and the peanut butter blended together, but I can't really say that I loved it. I can't say that I hated it either. It was just okay, but not my favorite. Also, I just want to say that it wasn't too salty, it was smooth, it had spread easily, and naturally, stuck to the roof of my mouth. All of the peanut butters were like this actually, so instead of me repeating this over and over, I'll just say it now. Overall, like I said, it was okay. It's not my favorite, so personally I wouldn't buy it, but maybe you'll love it, so you won't know until you try really.

Next, Choco Choco. I LOVE chocolate, so I had high hopes for this one. Like the others, it was separated and needed to be mixed. It was somewhat hard to mix, but not as bad as Razzle Dazzle. The scent was a strong peanut scent. There wasn't really anything to indicate that there was chocolate in there, though. It seemed to have chocolate chips at the bottom, but like the Razzle Dazzle, it seemed to just be some sort of technique for flavoring. It had a normal consistency, not as thick as Razzle Dazzle, but not as thin as CoCo Bananas either and it was darker in color (most likely from the cocoa), as well. The taste of it basically tasted like regular peanut butter. I didn't really taste anything special in it like chocolate. Overall, it was just as sticky, thick, and delicious as regular peanut butter, but considering how it's named Choco Choco and that it's supposed to have at least a hint of a chocolate taste, I have to say that I wouldn't recommend it to those looking for a chocolate flavored peanut butter. I feel like the one my partner reviewed before tasted much more like chocolate than this one. I probably wouldn't buy this one either. I would just buy a regular peanut butter or the one I had bought before instead. Not all that impressed, unfortunately.

Finally, Cookie Nookie. I was feeling a bit discouraged after tasting the other peanut butters, so I hoped that this peanut butter would really give me something to wow at. It was separated as well and was the hardest to mix. It was quite thick. The scent was basically vanilla wafers with a tiny bit of chocolate. You know, those wafers that are rectangle, crunchy, delicious, and have a crisscross pattern on them? Yeah, those wafers. It smelled good, so I wanted to hurry up and taste it. I spread it on bread and took a bite. I liked it. It was, by far, my favorite one out of all of them. Like I had thought from the scent, it tasted like vanilla wafers and peanut butter. I definitely enjoyed it. Overall, I would recommend this one. It was tasty, so I would definitely give it a try.
