Where to buy pb2?


Quote  |  Reply
So I hear everybody raving about this PB2 stuff, and I'd really love to get my hands on some. However, I googled PB2 and like no good information came up. The only place I saw it being sold was e-bay. Is that where you guys get your PB2? I know it's kind of pricy, so I want to get the best deal. Thanks!

I ordered mine from bellplantation.com.  I got 4 jars for about $16.  It came in about a week and I LOVE LOVE LOVE this stuff!  PB&Js are no longer off limits!

im also curious about PB2. i've been eating Peanut Wonder/Better'nPeanutbutter so far and like it, but PB2 is half the cals of that!
can i ask, whats it like? its powder but you add water right? how does it compare to PB? and what if you just ate it as a powder? (that sounds pretty good too)

if it were in stores i'd just buy a bottle, but i dont wanna hafta buy 4 and find out i dont like it :(

I got the Bell Plantation PB2 also, and it is AWESOME!  Just add water to whatever consistency you like.  I mix SF jelly right into the powder for a PBJ sandwich, but if you do, reduce the water or it gets pretty sloppy.
im stickin to the real stuff but just curious about this new crap, does it have the protein and the other nutritional benefits or what?
munited7,
This is a link to the nutrional info for PB2. Yes, it has protein and other nutrional benefits.
Check it out :)

PB2 Nutrion Information

Maybe refrain from calling it crap until you have had a chance to try it?
Just a thought :)

I realize this is a really late reply, but crap??  I love this stuff and I really am pretty picky about everything.  If it doesn't taste good it's not worth bothering with. 

Anyway it's well worth trying and all natural.  You can get it here

PB2 not only tastes like peanut butter and it's awesome - but mix some in with your yogurt!  OMIGOSH!!  it's great!
I'm eating some plain, now, on a slice of whole wheat bread. If it weren't for my love of Power Butter, I'd never buy any other sort of peanut butter. I eat Power Butter for lunch to get Omega 3s and extra protein, but PB2 definitely satisfies a peanut butter craving and makes a generous amount for about 50 calories. I can't imagine anyone thoroughly hating the stuff--- it's just too close to the real thing not to like! 

They sell it now at Wal-Mart, at least at our Wal-Mart. :))) and at about the same price as reg peanut butter ! Man do I love this stuff! I can have my peanut butter and banana sandwich and eat it too !!!! LOLLaughing

excuse my ignorance but what is the benefit of eating this vs eating the organic, no stir, low sodium peanut butter? Just curious cause I thought oils from plants were the good ones to have.

On a side note I noticed the website there at Bell Plantation mentioned its amazing what peanuts produced when pressed. George Washington Carver discovered more than 100 uses for the peanut back in the day. He even figured a way to make plastic parts for Henry Fords automobile back in the day. From Peanut oil....Now you can convert used peanut oil into bio diesel fuel and run your diesel engine off of it. Crazyness! I still like peanut butter though.

I think this stuff is the same as what is also called peanut flour - it's just peanuts with the fats pressed out of them.  I buy this product from Byrd Mill and use it to bake up some pretty tasty breakfast "cakes" (not sweet but not sure what else to call them) - that I eat every morning.  Supposedly you can add water to it and it's like peanut butter - I tried that and it was pretty awful compared to eating the real thing.

For me, the appeal is that I can bump up my protein a lot for not too many calories.  That leaves me lots of wiggle room in the calorie budget to have real nut butter later.

well I had some more time last night so I looked into it more and I think you are right on. Im not there yet where I would buy it but it definately looks interesting.

The problem with PB2 is that they added sugar to it... I don't eat PB with added sugar, and so if I'm cooking I still don't want sugar in my PB. If they made one that was just peanuts, I might be onboard with it.  I agree with meganr -- adding water to make it in an ersatz PB results in a vile concoction (for me), but I have used it (before I finally tossed the jar) in protein smoothies for extra protein.

I buy this stuff: Peanut Flour - it's peanuts only.  For 1/4 cup, it's 100 calories and 12 grams of protein.  You definitely have to add it to something or bake it in something.
