PB Throwdown with Peanut Butter and Co.

A few years back when I lived in Los Angeles, a few friends and I had a sandwich day (30 Rock anyone?) which consisted of us making the most epic sandwich creation ever and then sharing amongst the group.  So when Karla from Foodologie and I started chatting with Peanut Butter and Co., we decided that we would host a party dedicated to one of the most beloved sandwiches in the US – the peanut butter sandwich.  But this wouldn’t be any ordinary party, it would be a PB throwdown with Peanut Butter and Co.

*The Peanut Butter and Co. giveaway has officially ended.  Thanks to all who participated!*

Peanut Butter and Co. was generous enough to sponsor our PB throwdown event and sent us multiple jars of each of their flavors: Smooth Operator, The Bees Knees, Cinnamon Raisin Swirl, White Chocolate Wonderful, Dark Chocolate Dreams, Crunch Time, The Heat Is On and Mighty Maple.  With our peanut butter lineup secured, Karla and I gathered the remaining items that were needed for our showdown including various toppings, bread, fruit, spreads, cheese and of course bacon.  With our spread complete, it was time to start the PB throwdown.

A HUGE thank you for Peanut Butter and Co. for providing the peanut butter and making this PB throwdown possible.  And another big thanks to Karla for opening up her home and hosting the party.

So now here’s the fun part.  One lucky person will win a sampler pack featuring 6 of Peanut Butter and Co.’s flavors!  That’s 6 jars of delicious peanut butter goodness.
