Ritz Peanut Butter Ice Cream Is Launching From Coolhaus Next Month

Fans of peanut butter Ritz cracker sandwiches are getting a frozen treat that celebrates the best of what that snack has to offer, but in ice cream form.

Ritz has teamed up with Coolhaus to make a “Crackers & Cream” ice cream that featured a Ritz cracker swirl inside of a peanut butter ice cream. The collab is the first one Ritz has ever done in the ice cream space.

Ritz crackers on their own are well known, but combining them with peanut butter here calls to our childhood lunch snacks and reminds us that the school season is just around the corner.

Since Coolhaus is known for doing some out-of-box flavors, it would also be cool to see a flavor based on the cheddar Ritz cracker sandwiches some time in the future.

For the current Ritz peanut butter ice cream, however, you can purchase it starting it on September 9th. The flavor is a limited edition, and only available for purchase on the Coolhaus website. There’s no telling if it will make it into grocery stores just yet.

Jif’s New Squeezable Pouches Makes Serving Peanut Butter Insanely Easier

A nice creamy peanut butter sandwich is one of the purest delights in this life. The only downside for me, however, is sometimes I’ll fumble with the knife and make my peanut to bread ratio pretty uneven. The sandwich will still be delicious, don’t get me wrong, but some bites will have more bread than peanut butter and vice versa.

Now you can control the portion of peanut butter delivered to any vessel thanks to these new Jif Squeeze Creamy Peanut Butter.

The peanut butter brand has released a new squeezable pouch that releases your peanut butter with the precision of a seasoned surgeon. Through this new method, you can measure much more accurately for recipes and more importantly serve ants on a log without making a mess of your presentation.

You can find these new pouches and mini To Go containers at participating retailers and online this July.

You should be on the lookout for this new Chex cereal!

Ready to kick your love for peanut butter up a notch? General Mills is changing up its most famous cereal by bringing us Peanut Butter Chex. It should be perfect in a bowl with milk (or as a tasty addition to your favorite cereal bar recipe) and we can already tell this is going to be a hit with peanut butter fans!

Plan to buy more than one box? Check out all of our most mind-blowing ways to use cereal.

The Secret Roll-Out

This Chex cereal is so brand new that it’s not even listed on Chex’s website yet. But that hasn’t stopped grocery store sleuths from finding the cereal on shelves and sharing their thoughts on social media. Over on Instagram, @mnmtwinzsays: “The pleasant texture of sweetened corn Chex, plus the taste of real peanut butter is a combination that makes you wonder; ‘why didn’t this release sooner?’

We couldn’t agree more! Plus, we’ll definitely be mixing it with chocolate Chex.

Bonus: It’s a Gluten-Free Option

Like many Chex cereals, this is a gluten-free breakfast or snack. Plus, it’s made with no artificial preservatives, colors, flavors or high fructose corn syrup. The sweetened corn cereal is made with real peanut butter, and retails for $3.29 at Target per box. Count us in!

Looks Like OREO’s New Flavor Will Be Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Oreo is back at it with a new flavor, and although it feels like an oldie, it’s still new, if that makes sense.

The famed cookie will be releasing a Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie flavor, according to Junk Banter, and it really does feel like it’s going to be a fancy version of their old Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup.

I forgot my glasses at home, but it looks like the package in Junk Banter’s photo says it consists of graham cracker cookies, which I guess is the biggest difference between it and the Reese’s Oreo. Of course, it’s also half peanut butter, half chocolate creme.

Their last flavor experiment was Hot Cocoa Oreos, which released in November, and we’re still waiting to find out what their fruity Mystery flavor will be.

For those who miss the Reese’s Oreo, this might be a nice replacement, although it will probably only be around for a limited time, like most of these flavors.

Cheerios Permanently Adds Chocolate Peanut Butter Flavor To Cereal Lineup

Gearing up for the upcoming OOZEFEST 3, we’re trying to eat as healthy as we can before we partake in the indulgence that one can only find at an all-cheese festival. That means a slightly more balanced breakfast than usual, and less candy to start the day.

Luckily, there’s something a little more nourishing than a handful of chocolates to kick off your morning. Cheerios announced a new Chocolate Peanut Butter flavor as the latest edition to their breakfast cereal family.

A combination of real cocoa and real peanut butter, the cereal features dual-colored O’s. Like all Cheerios varieties, the Chocolate Peanut Butter is made with whole grain oats.

Hopefully, it’ll taste like a peanut butter cup. If we had any weakness to chocolates candies, it’s a solid peanut butter cup.

You can find the new breakfast cereal at participating major retailers nationwide beginning late October 2017 as a permanent addition to the cereal brand’s lineup. They’ll be available in 12.3-oz and 18.8-oz boxes.

The chocolates and candies will be available at participating retailers through the end of the month. You can easily spot them with their spooky scary packaging.

Watch Irish People React To Trying American Peanut Butter For The First Time

Late-night hunger pangs can be a cruel mistress. You’re stuck in the twilight between nuking something in the microwave, or just going back to sleep. More often than not, sleep loses that battle and we end up making ourselves a sandwich. The quickest and quietest solution: a good old fashioned sandwich made with American peanut butter.

Facts, the YouTube channel behind Irish People trying American BBQ, is at it again.

The panel try the most popular peanut butter brands like Jif, Smuckers, Creamy Reese’s, and Skippy.

Check out the video below to see their different stances on American peanut butter brands and which ones they enjoyed the most. Personally, we were always partial to Skippy.

Watching these lads and lasses try all the American peanut butter we have at our disposal really makes us curious about the differences between them all. Perhaps on our next grocery run, we’ll pick up a few. Can’t hurt to grab some jelly either.
