We know it’s been a few months since we’ve presented you all with any “Swank Bag” goodies, and we are sorry. It is sometimes hard to strike a balance between all the goodness that comes our way, and when we will push it out to you all. Going forward we will not make you wait so long; but as they say, “good things come to those who wait”, and boy do I have a goodie for you!

I’m sure many of you are aware of Justin’s Nut Butters. They are the completely organic and all-natural delicious nut butter spreads that come in the individual 1.15 or .5 ounce squeeze packets in eight flavors – Chocolate Almond, Maple Almond, Honey Almond, Classic Almond, Chocolate Peanut, Honey Peanut, Classic Peanut and Chocolate Hazelnut. These are so damn delicious that they could go in the “swank bag”, but as I said in the beginning many of you are already aware of this food porn classic. For those of you that have been under a rock and completely clueless, consider this a bonus or a PSA (public service announcement); get those smartphones out and add Justin’s Butter to your next grocery list.

My swank bag goodie is not just Justin’s butters, but it is also their peanut butter cups! Yes my darlings, they offer peanut butter cups that will make you revolt and rise up in protest against the beloved Reese’s Cup. I know it may sound like a stretch, but these are like the new paramount peanut butter cups on the market! Justin’s says it best, “Think of your favorite peanut butter cup. Next, magnify that feeling by a gazillion-that’s ours.” It is a combination of their delicious organic peanut butter and some of the highest quality organic and fair-trade Belgian chocolate on the market. Each peanut butter cup is only 100 calories – WHAT THE WHAT?!?!? Yes , just only 100 calories per PB cup which is less sugar than the competition; and they have zero preservatives. You can get either milk chocolate or dark chocolate. The dark chocolate is one of the only vegan, gluten-free and Rainforest Alliance certified peanut butter cups in the world. Justin’s recently won top honors at the Natural Products Expo West Best of West – the industry largest tradeshow of the year.

Justin’s has got a good thing going with these delicious and healthier peanut butter cups. They are not only creamier and richer, but with the first bite you immediately appreciate the better quality chocolate that is being used in their products. Who knew that 100 percent nuts, organic chocolate, no hydrogenated oils and no trans-fat could taste so sinfully good; or as Justin’s calls them “Peanut Butter Cup Perfection”. I prefer calling them…The Holy Grail of Peanut Butter Cups!

You can visit Justin’s website to shop online or to locate a store in your area that carries their products.
