'Mocha Monday' over here in the Mix, folks!! How so? Well, not only has it been a coffee-fuelled one, pretty standard for the forever-frenzied start to the Pick&Mix week, but there's been an inordinate amount of chocolate involved too, thanks to the insane number of Swolesome Easter goodies you guys have 'picked' over the weekend!
Oh, and not to mention the NEW Nuts 'n More Mocha Cappuccino we finally got our hands on!! That's right, Nuts 'n More's latest protein-infused, fun, flavoured peanut butter has arrived in the Mix!! Launched before Christmas in the States this one's taken a little while to come over (boo)...kinda galling because...coffee + peanut butter?! That's pretty unusual!! Colour me curious but,as a big (BIG) fan of both individually, i've been DYING to find out what the NNM guys had thrown together.
Never ones to let the #nutnation down, sure enough, what we have here is a faithfully flavoured coffee-house combo, delivered in Nuts 'n More's ever-satisfying, ever-spreadable, ever-spoonable format...and, of course, all natural, low sugar and high protein and all that good stuff! That's not QUITE the end of the story on this one, though...
As is often the case with coffee-flavoured goodies, they end up with quite a sophisticated taste (toffee? Easy! Coffee? Complex!)...on opening? You're greeted by a milk choc-looking butter - so far, so good - but, on closer inspection you'll see teeny-tiny coffee-esque flecks and, sure enough, when spooned (generously) into your mouth? Boom.
Thoughts of choc quickly 'melt' away (there but subtle!) and the uncanny aromas of balanced sweet/sharp brown-sugary cappuccino develop, pulling back *just* short of bitterness...and lingering on the palate *just* long enough to remind you to get that spoon involved once more! ;-)
Doesn't look like there's actual coffee in here, but the spices within work some sort of mocha magic, giving Nuts n More's smooth, sweet PB blend the flavour of your favourite rich, robust roast.
A REAL coffee lover? You're gonna want to get involved here!! Hard to imagine a better butter for your toast alongside your morning cup of joe!
