One of my favorite treats on the trail is a small amount of creamy peanut butter. Thankfully there are some great ways of taking it along with you such as convenient individual serving packets that are now available, small amounts portioned out at home and wrapped up in plastic wrap, or in powdered form. No matter how I carry it with me it's always a delicious treat at any time of the day.
But there's a new kid on the block and he's packing chocolate. My wife just returned home from the grocery store with what I consider to be a truly terrific food find (ttff). She discovered a new (to us) product called Dark Chocolate Dreams made by Peanut Butter and Co. These small individual sized 32g packets contain a blend of rich dark chocolate and creamy peanut butter that can be enjoyed anywhere at any time. These are going to be perfect for my next hiking trip.
I wish my blog had taste 'o' vision because this stuff is absolutely delicious! As a double bonus for me, these are made using dark chocolate which happens to be the only type of chocolate I eat anyway because I have a reaction to milk chocolate for some reason. I took a photo of the nutritional information on the back of the packet for those of you that like to know these things.
My wife found these in the food aisle that contains all of the peanut butter products, so take a careful look next time you go shopping to see if you can spot these on the shelves.
