Pic’s Peanut Butter

 

The Snack

Pic’s Peanut Butter really is “really good” like the jar says. You’ve never had peanut butter this rich and flavorful. There are three varieties available: regular, no salt, and crunchy. We love that Pic’s has thought outside the jar and created slugs, little peanut butter packets to go. The slugs are a perfect summer snack.

Just throw one in your bag, and if you find yourself feeling a little run down during a road trip, you can grab the slug and eat the peanut butter right there in the car without a mess. It will give you natural energy to wake you up and keep you going, with no caffeine or sugar! Pack a jar of Pic’s with you on your next vacation and try some yummy peanut butter and preserve croissants for a late morning pick me up.   

 

Brand

Pic’s Peanut Butter, based in New Zealand, makes “peanut butter worth eating.” They are so confident that their peanut butter is the best, that they are now selling it all over the world. Creator and owner Pic Picot started making his own peanut butter because he was annoyed at the big brands adding sugar to their peanut butter. His friends started begging him for jars of his homemade peanut butter and he decided to start selling it. Today, Pic’s offers peanut butters, peanut oils and almond butters.
