If you consider yourself a peanut butter lover, then congratulations: November is your month! National Peanut Butter Lovers Month is a time to enjoy the creamy, rich and satisfying peanut butter – whether you do that on a PB&J sandwich, inside peanut butter cups, spread over a bagel, with an apple dipped inside or another way, you can’t go wrong with peanut butter.
According to the Harvard Medical School, peanut butter is actually healthy for you. Peanut butter is filled with fiber, vitamins and minerals (including 200 milligrams of potassium) and other nutrients. Additionally, numerous studies have found that people who regularly eat nuts or peanut butter are less likely to develop heart disease or type 2 diabetes.
This month, stock up on delicious peanut butter at Whole Foods Addison. Here, you can get a 16 oz. can of Justin’s Classic Peanut Butter for just $4.99, which is ready to be spread on sandwiches or to dip fruit in. You can also get many healthy snack bars filled with peanut butter, such as the Coconut Peanut Butter Perfect Bar, the Kind Snacks Peanut Butter Breakfast Bar, and the Peanut Butter & Berries Protein Bar. For those with a sweet tooth, try the Justin’s Mini Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups or the Simple Mills Soft-Baked Peanut Butter Cookies.
There are other places to get your peanut butter fix in Addison. Head to Starbucks to get the Peanut Butter & Jam Protein Box, filled with a half peanut butter and jelly sandwich, a cheese stick, chocolate-covered raisins, apples, carrots and Greek yogurt ranch dip.
Or, go to Duck Donuts, where you can get the Peanut Butter Paradise donut, topped with peanut butter icing and chocolate drizzle, or the Peanut Butter & Jelly donut, with peanut butter icing and raspberry drizzle.
