Yes. The PB2. I do not like it but am trying to use it up in shakes.

I was so happy when Wal Mart started carrying PB2. I had one serving and said YUCK and haven't touched it since. I remember it tasting like chemicals and I just hated it. I don't even understand the appeal. I guess for low calorie dieters it's good, because they have "defatted" it some. But for me, BLEH.

That's odd, there are no chemicals in the product. It's peanuts and sugar, nothing else, as I recall?

I don't care for it by itself...I add it to chocolate or vanilla protein shakes and its super. I've also heard adding it to Greek yogurt is good... I like it, personally.

I don't like I as peanut butter, but it is good mixed into things, like oatmeal, yogurt, etc...

I really, really don't like it, and the pb2 chocolate peanut butter is even worse. I got little sample packets online- perhaps you can do the same before investing in a jar?

If I was stuck with a jar I'd try to use it in recipes and protein shakes , because straight up reconstituted is nasty.

I like it OK, but there is sugar in it. I wish there weren't.

I use it in recipes but I don't eat it by itself.
Makes a good addition to a thai-style peanut sauce for Atkins OWL people, but I use it sparingly.

The WORST peanut butter I ever tasted is Walden pb, OMGOSH, its terrible tasting and has a positively slimy texture.

I have some about 3 times a week, sometimes with a little Hershey dark choc powder and sometimes not. Our walmart can't keep it on the shelves fast enough, as it always sells out so quickly!
