MYFITNESS Chocolate Peanut Butter Crispy Review
MYFITNESS Chocolate Peanut Butter has rice crispies which gives it an appealing texture. The balance of fresh-tasting peanuts and dark chocolate is delicious.
Peanut butter isn’t just about taste anymore. Yes, it’s delicious but also is a great, concentrated source of nut-based protein for people who are trying to up their intake.
As we know peanut, butter isn’t just about the creamy and crunchy variety anymore. Not only textures, but a lot of peanut butter brands also play around with flavors and ingredients such as caramel, honey, jaggery, dark chocolate, and chilli as well.
MYFITNESS has a range of peanut butter from the classic segment, crunchy and creamy. But wait, there’s another variant – Crispy. We ordered a 1.2-kilo tub of MYFITNESS peanut butter from Amazon to see how a ‘crispy’ peanut butter, (no, not crunchy) would taste like? Can it be a crisp alternative to your everyday creamy/crunchy peanut butter? Our MYFITNESS chocolate peanut butter crispy review digs into the nutrition label, flavor profile, and texture.
MYFITNESS Chocolate Peanut Butter Crispy – What You Need To Know
Here is all that you need to know about the MYFITNESS Chocolate Peanut Butter Crispy.
We were impressed with the quality of the outer packaging. We ordered the 1.2 Kg tub from Amazon, as any regular consumer would. The outer thermocol packaging with the detailed label and a ‘fragile’ sticker is something we haven’t seen for a tub of peanut butter. Crockery? Yes. But peanut butter? No.
MYFITNESS Chocolate Peanut Butter (Crispy) comes in a white and blue tub. The label is fairly detailed and the storage instructions are clearly displayed. Once empty, the tub can be reused to store other kitchen ingredients as well.
2. Available Sizes
As per MYFITNESS’ website, the chocolate peanut butter (crispy) is available in three sizes –
- 510 grams
- 1.2 Kg
- 2.5 Kg
Very often a peanut butter can be loaded with low-quality, unhealthy oils, and refined sugar. This is why scanning the ingredient list is a must if you’re looking for healthier kinds of peanut butter.
Ingredient list of MYFITNESS Chocolate Peanut Butter (Crispy) – Roasted peanuts, Dark chocolate, Rice crispies (rice, flour, wheat flour, milk powder, sugar, salt, cocoa powder), Brown sugar, Salt, Stabiliser.
There is a huge difference between the flavor of raw peanuts and roasted peanuts. Raw peanuts are a tad bit bland and lack that depth of flavor. On the other hand, roasted peanuts have a rich, deep nutty flavor. This is due to the Maillard reaction. This is a chemical reaction between the amino acids and sugars present in the food. This is why roasted nuts, toasted marshmallows, biscuits, and bread develop that rich flavor.
MYFITNESS Chocolate Peanut Butter (Crispy) is made using roasted peanuts and dark chocolate. Both of these combine together beautifully and give us great-tasting peanut butter.
We liked how this isn’t overly sweet. The brown sugar is added very delicately. The sugary sweetness does not overpower the individual flavor of peanuts or dark chocolate.
The peanuts taste fresh and combine nicely with the subtle flavor of dark chocolate. The rice crispies don’t really add any flavor but are meant to add a variation to the texture. Which is what we shall be talking about next.
5. Texture & Consistency
Let’s discuss texture first. We usually see two types of PB’s on market shelves- crunchy and creamy. Creamy is when it’s absolutely smooth and crunchy is when there are small bits of peanuts mixed in the blended peanut butter. So what’s crispy?
The MYFITNESS Chocolate Peanut Butter has cocoa-based round rice crispies which are in abundance. They are all uniform in shape and size. Not even one bite had fewer crispies during our tasting rounds. All of them are evenly distributed throughout the tub.
When we opened the pack, there wasn’t any oil floating on top. This peanut butter has a thick, creamy consistency. It isn’t lumpy. The peanut butter is very well blended.
6. Nutritional Information
The pack has a fairly detailed nutrition label mentioning values for both 100 gms and per serve (32 gms). 32 grams roughly comes to little more than 2 tablespoons.
