Did you have any idea that our kids’ favorite, Peanut Butter, comes in a LOT of different flavors? It is true! My daughter and I had a fun taste test when we tried over 12 different flavors of peanut butter from Fix & Fogg. Our favorite was chocolate. The Everything Peanut Butter on my morning toast was awesome and full of texture. And I made a delightful chicken dish with Smoke & Fire. Celebrate this year’s National Peanut Butter Day (January 24) with a taste test of your own (and takes advantage of the 15% off site-wide this weekend!
