More than just a spread

Quite often, when we do tastings, we get the question, “So, how do you eat spicy peanut butter?” Well did you know that some people actually LOVE eating peanut butter in a brown bread sandwich with mayo and pickles! It has actually been a classic in Southern American states since the Great Depression. Additionally, while some dip their peanut butter sandwiches in a bowl of steamy and creamy tomato soup, other adventurous eaters love their peanut butter in an omelet with jam and candied bacon bits. We do realize that these combinations are quite funky and that is why we wanted to share with you our favorite ways to eat our Manba spicy peanut butter.
