Peanut Butter & Co: A Peanut Butter Lover's Dream

Peanut Butter & Co: A Peanut Butter Lover’s Dream

So, there’s this place in New York City. A place I’ve never been. A place that I dream about sometimes. It’s a place that’s all about peanut butter. Yes, peanut butter again. Shut up. at least I’ve stopped talking about pumpkin for a few posts. Anyway, for you lucky NYCers, Peanut Butter & Co. is in Greenwich Village and you should go right now. For me. Sadly, for all the times I’ve been to NYC, I’ve never been. I have a serious weakness for peanut butter. And this? This is the best.

I had heard of Peanut Butter & Co. but didn’t think much of it until Sara gave me a jar of their Cinnamon Raisin Swirl for my birthday (yes, friends buy me peanut butter for my birthday) and about a week later, we took a little trip to the Christmas Tree Shop where we both majorly stocked up.

The above is Sara’s picture, but mine is basically the same except for the fact that I got 3 Cinnamon Raisin Swirls (oh my god, amazing). But they also have flavors like dark chocolate (amazing), white chocolate, honey, maple, spicy, and crunchy. Allegedly, they also sell this stuff at some Stop and Shops and Whole Foods, but at Xmas Tree Shop? It’s $2.99. Don’t you just love a bargain? Um, yes. You can also buy it on the Peanut Butter & Co. website for $6.00.

If you even like peanut butter just a little bit, you will immediately become obsessed with Peanut Butter & Co. (what? I can’t be the only one with a major obsession for peanut butter). You have to love them. Their wesbite address is ilovepeanutbutter.com. How cute? And I seriously want to call them just so I can dial 1-866-ILOVEPB.

I mean, if you know me, you know how greatly I dislike monkeys, but I desperately want all of Peanut Butter & Co’s gear though it involves monkeys. Want:

And wait. I think I just fell in love a little more. One of the shop’s featured sandwiches is made with crunchy peanut butter and pumpkin butter. Umm, any NYCers want to drop one in the mail for me? Or how about their peanut butter BLT? If you’re gonna try it, Peanut Butter & Co. is probably the place to try it.

Something tells me I’ll be needing another trip to the Christmas Tree Shop very soon. Or maybe just a trip to NYC’s Greenwich Village. Anyone else in?

    Hey – it was great to meet you too and thanks for the well wishes. I don’t like peanut butter (don’t hate me!) but I gotta say, the huge variety offered up here looks like something I’d try. 🙂

  2. S T E P P I E says:

    Yum! 🙂

  3. Pam says:

    I love that place! In the restaurant, they have a sampler platter with 6 different kinds of peanut butter, crackers, carrots, and celery. So much fun to try them all!

  4. Rachel Ann says:

    It’s at the Shaw’s on Comm Ave too. Just saw it there on Saturday!

    Sadly, PB&Co. is not all it's cracked up to be (although I did go about 4 years ago, so maybe they've stepped it up a bit since then). I absolutely love PB and was so excited to go there, but it was a bit of a letdown. They need to use better bread that matches the quality of the PB… the one thing that was unquestionably delicious. But you should still definitely go and check it out for yourself at some point!

    What a cool place! If I can ever get my butt to NY from SoCal, I’m so there. I’m totally obsessed with Christmas Tree Shops. It’s a good thing I don’t live back east or I might just be there all the time. Last summer my suitcase was filled with all sorts of CTS goodies coming home from vacation!

    i’m in! roadtrip!

    OMG…I love this stuff! I just bought the Dark Chocolate Dreams at Wal-Mart last week and I am in love! I love PB, but with chocolate? I top with Black Cherry Fruit Spread. YUM! It is under $4/jar at Wal-Mart.

    What a fun place. I am a big PB lover!!

  10. ttfn300 says:

    is it bad i just sung along the christmas tree shop slogan with you? yes, i do love a bargain 🙂

  11. Ashley D says:

    I went to PBC once, and I agree with Megan. The bread was horrible, kinda stale, and ruined the entire sandwich. The peanut butter was good though, and they even serve it with potato chips and carrot sticks. 🙂

  12. We Are Not Martha says:

    Lilly- Ahhh you don't like peanut butter?!? Don't worry, Chels doesn't either, so I need to write about it enough for the both of us!

    Steppie- Exactlyy 🙂

    Pam- I saw that on the website. I would never be able to decide what to order!!

    Rachel Ann- Good to know!! I'm worried xmas tree is going to sell out and not re-stock.

    Megan- Awww what a disappointment. Well luckily we can buy the peanut butter ourselves and put it on our own good bread. Or eat it right out of the jar…not like I do that or anything.

    Recipegirl- Xmas tree shop is one of my favorite places ever. It's soo much fun and fabulous prices. I would be incredibly sad if I lived far from one!

    Sara- Yesss! Let's start planning!

    Glutenfreeislife- The dark chocolate one is one of my faves. And with black cherry spread? That sounds soo amazing.

    Maria- Then you definitely need to try this…all of them!

    ttfn30- I have dreams of being in their commercials. Some day…

    Ashley d- Sooo sad. Maybe I should stay away for fear of ruining the Peanut Butter & Co. illusion.

  13. MaryBeth says:

    I so totally love peanut butter and OMG, so many kinds to pick from. I want them all.

  14. Cathy - wheresmydamnanswer says:

    I have never heard of this place – Thanks for sharing.. We are big peanut butter fans and will go to their site and check it out..

  15. nicoleantoinette says:

    I LOVE this place! I used to go here all the time. Have we already talked about this? I feel like we have.

    I love this place, haha!

  16. bostontparties says:

    my roommate lived here freshman year. I have to say, while it’s a cute place, the pb itself is the real draw- not the fixings, and it’s definitely a bit expensive. however, the pb/nutella/banana combo. is. heaven.

  17. Kevin says:

    Those peanut butters sound really good!

  18. Alya says:

    Is this heaven?? I’m a PB addict too!! I’d consider going to NY just for this shop!

  19. mikky says:

    too bad we don’t have that kind of a place here on this side… 🙂

  20. Pam says:

    Finally, someone who appreciates my infatuation with peanut butter! I LOVE it. And I was dying to go to Peanut Butter & Co. when I was in NYC this summer…sadly, we couldn't fit it in. But I did stock up on the Dark Chocolate Dreams PB at the grocery store. It's so good with pretzels…yum.

    Another thing I love…Christmas Tree Shop. I was introduced to it two summers ago when I was visiting my boyfriend at the Cape. It's the best store ever and I so wish we had them in Chicago (sigh).
