Review: Sun-Pat Choc-a-Nut Peanut Spread
Even though I enjoy chocolate spreads and peanut butter, my husband is even more of a fan than I am. He's always on the lookout for any new product and has found some real gems over the years (I still miss the Coconut Chocolate Spread that Sainsbury's used to sell!). I had actually read about this new Sun-Pat Choc-a-Nut peanut spread on Kev's Snack Review blog but hadn't seen it instore anywhere, so I was more than happy when the other half found a jar recently.
It certainly sounds like a great idea, albeit a very simple one - to create a combination of chocolate spread and butter butter in one jar. The reality of this Sun-Pat spread does not actually equate to that promising combination, but it's a very tasty proposition in it's own right. Instead, this is a mix of smooth peanut spread with cocoa powder, rather than chocolate, which meant it had a deeper, darker flavour than I was expecting. Even though I've pictured this spread on a toasting waffle, I wouldn't recommend it eaten this way, it just didn't work well at all, and seemed to bring out a bitter flavour from the Choc-a-Nut spread. On a piece of toast, or bagel, however it is completely delicious! The result is not too sweet or greasy, with the rich cocoa flavour creating a very different type of spread.
