Why does this exist? Who is the demographic that this item targets? The connoisseur who demands not just peanut spread, but fancy gourmet peanut spread, who also has a healthy caffeine addiction, but who is too lazy to acquire and separately enjoy a caffeinated beverage along with his (or her) (or xer) (or whatever) specifically selected specialty peanut spread?
@shahnm No idea, but as someone who loves peanut butter, and loves caffeine, this caught my attention fast. I’m in for a set of the 4 peanut-based spreads. (Yea I know it isn’t actually peanut butter, I hope it doesn’t suck)
@shahnm I think it is for the protein powder/fitness crowd. This stuff sells at GNC for $10 per jar. So I guess the target demographic is overly caffeinated gym rats who want a change from chugging protein powder while juicing.
@shampshire I would like nothing more at this time than a spirited discussion regarding the relative merits of whey vs. soy based protein supplement products. I wonder if any Mehtizens will enter into such discourse…?
@mike808@shahnm You do know that dairy cows live a relatively luxurious life, right? Most large dairies even have a machine that massages them. It’s a fact that happy cows make more milk. The cows themselves even get to choose when to get milked. Basically, household pets are the only animals that generally live better than most dairy cows.
/giphy happy cows
@shaconaqe You do know that cows only produce milk after birthing a calf, so dairy farms must necessarily keep their cows in a constant state of forced pregnancy. The milk we consume is merely a byproduct of that process. The “luxurious life” they lead is merely to assuage our societal guilt over forced pregnancy, similar to the “luxurious life” men provide for their wives in exchange for birthing only their husband’s children and genetic legacy.
@Thumperchick Dear Disney rabbit lady, I believe the paternity test came back this is the offspring of Mr. Penut and Juan Valdez, if palpitations are your only concern then go for it the proud parents would be happy to hear your heart is a flutter over their offspring!
Oddly, I think you might have solved part of my “I hate breakfast” problem. I really adore breakfast burritos, but they’re not healthy, because eggs/bacon/salsa/tortilla combos are delicious. Nut butter/crackers is better, but often I end up hungry an hour later, so at that point, what’s the difference between that and cereal except sugar? Maybe best of both worlds?
@PhysAssist Yeah, I caught that this is a significant savings over Amazon too - I’m trying to decide whether my love of caffeinated things and my fondness for peanut butter means I should buy this, even though I had no idea such a thing existed before tonight.
I’m pretty sure I’ve just lost the battle and will click buy shortly.
You can buy 5 lbs of Jif and 2.25 lbs of chocolate flavor whey protein for less than twenty bucks at that Jeff Bozo place if you want to make your own. Add another six bucks to throw in some caffeine pills.
I was actually going to post about this being made of Hemp but it takes away from the cannabis deal props @givemehdeal
Yeah so there is this product out there and I know that now… if I want to get dead I could suicide myself by caffeine and nutzballs.
This one is a weird one meh, I am going to levitate over it which would be easier with a Dolby Atmos system and some Eurosocks to boot! So yeah get off my back a bit I have had the flu with pneumonia. Oddly enough I went jogging today in the single stupidest event in history… but I hate feeling like I am getting pudgy. Man was I fking wiped.
@sippinndippin Dude- with pneumonia you havta stick with active rest:
Listen to your body and sleep/rest whenever you feel like you need it.
But when you are awake, at least every 2 hours, you havta get up and walk round:
Go to BR, Get a drink, and/or snack, etc, whatevs, as long as you get up and move around for 10-15 minutes to stimulate blood flow, to encourage taking deeper breaths, and thus prevent worsening of infection by getting a collapsed lung, or clots in your veins, [AKA DVT]- which can lead to pulmonary embolism [PE]- AKA- a clot traveling into the blood vessels of your lungs.
Prognosis: Not good.
You can look on any medical web site [XC WebMD- there you already have cancer] just search “complications of being sedentary because of acute illness/injury”.
BTW, just having an acute infection can also increase your risk of clotting inappropriately.
@sippinndippin I didn’t mean to scare you, XC enuff to get you to 1) listen to your body…
and 2) move around enough, to avoid the complications.
How do I know these things? It’s not just my screen-name, it’s my job title too.
But how do they taste? Intrigued by the flavors. Confused by the concept. I just want to know if it is going to taste like nutella without the guilt, or if it’s going to taste like chalky peanut butter with weirdness wrapped around it like a wet blanket.
What? Why? Perhaps they would have had me if they added in Alleve and Ben Gay for post-workout soreness, immodium for post “Not Nut Butter” diarrhea, maxilax for constipation, pepto for my obvious upset stomach and lithium to calm my 'roid rage.
So much meh. Why are they adding protein powders to a nut spread, which already is a good source of protein. And caffeinated?? “Protein infused” – oooohh, it’s “infused?” Then it’s gotta be good, right? More like infused with too much added oil. (All that being said, if this is your thing, or might be, it seems to be a decent price – well, if they were simple nut butters, that is, anyway.)
I am trying to order this but I only see a way to pick one flavor per order. Normally after selecting the first option I would see more but nothing today. Am I misreading this and it’s only a 4-pack of the same flavor?
Wait why are you psychos selling 4-packs of each flavor? Let us mix and match. Not a lot of people are going to take a risk on this being super disgusting if they don’t at least have a chance at one of the others being better.
So far I’ve only tried the Chocolate Craze flavor. I like it! Not too sweet, melts well when applied to a warm carb (toast, toasted pita, etc), and the caffeine effect is noticeable to even someone who routinely drinks energy drinks. Very slightly gritty, but so are most nut butters that aren’t jif, so eh. Put it on something warm, and it’s fine!
