Welcome to Day #3 of Chocolate and Banana Theme Week.
Today's sachet (packet) of Chocolate Banana Flavored Peanut Spread was from Legendary Foods (Pasadena, CA). The convenient single-serving packaging made it convenient to carry it and eat it with a meal on the go or as an outdoor adventure snack.
The keto-friendly and gluten free spread had a slightly artificially sweet banana aroma and flavor (perhaps due to the "natural flavors"* or alternative sweeteners added?). Banana can be a tricky flavor to infuse into foods and sweets.
The spread's consistency, like every other nut butter-like spreads in small packets we've tasted, was a combination of nut butter solids and oil. So do massage the small packet gently between your fingers first before opening it, to avoid having to sponge oil drips out of your clothing.
Otherwise, the peanut spread had authentic peanut flavor, a faint cocoa note, and nut butter melt and consistency. Extra points to the company for no sugar, and using relatively natural sugar substitutes (erythritol and stevia)* to add some sweetness. (A single serving had 3 net carbs.)
*Ingredients: Peanuts, Erythritol. Contains less than 2% of the following: cocoa, dried bananas, cocoa butter, natural flavors, sea salt, sunflower lecithin, palm oil, steviol glycosides (stevia). (The company sources ingredients without GMOs.)
