Kevin gave me something for Christmas this year that I absolutely loved.
He got me a really fun collection of peanut butter spreads in some seriously intriguing flavor combinations.
They’re from Spread, a restaurant in San Diego that uses all locally grown, organic ingredients. I was so enamored with these extraordinary flavors that I had to stop by the restaurant in person while we were out in San Diego.
And I couldn’t leave without a few more jars.
They have flavors like Blonde, which is white chocolate and peanut butter blended with their own house-made chocolate peanut butter cups.
Tastes just like a peanut butter cup! Love this one.
And butterscotch peanut butter, which knocked my socks off. It’s sweet and peanut buttery and completely delicious. It’s my favorite for a good old fashioned peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
They have cinnamon peanut butter, which smells like heaven when you open it.
This is the Ode to Elvis peanut butter spread. Can you guess what’s in it?
It’s peanut butter and banana of course, but it’s also got just a taste of honey and.. are you ready for this? Organic soy bacon bits.
What a surprise when I tasted it! LOVED the salty, crunchy bacon bits. They are such a fun addition to this peanut butter spread.
This is Rose Salted Basil peanut butter. Oh my gosh. This one is incredible. Incredible. It’s basil. It’s peanut butter. It’s got organic dried rose petals in it. It’s fantastic. Love this on a Ritz cracker.
Oh boy. This is the one you’ve been waiting for. White Chocolate Pretzel peanut butter.
I attempted to maintain a semblance of dignity by spreading this on a Ritz cracker before consuming.
But I quickly gave up. This one’s best enjoyed straight out of the jar. It’s the only way to do it.
They even have just regular peanut butter. Super smooth and silky gourmet peanut butter.
They all taste like peanut butter.
They all have the wonderful, stick-to-the-roof-of-your-mouth quality of peanut butter.
And they’re all incredibly delicious.
Remember what I said about the butterscotch peanut butter?
Spread the Restaurant is now closed, but you can make my copycat White Chocolate Pretzel Peanut Butter spread at home. It’s super easy and tastes EXACTLY like what I used to order from Spread. It’s so much cheaper and you get so much more! Enjoy! :)
PLEASE TAKE THIS REVIEW DOWN AS THE RESTAURANT IS CLOSED AND IS STEALING THE MONEY OF WHOEVER ORDERS THEIR PRODUCT. THEY TAKE THE MONEY BUT DELIVER NO PRODUCT.
How do I order
Please call me at 205-586-8306
They are closed.
I have seen Tyler on Food Network eat your peanut butter and love it completely. I want that experience. I dearly would like to know how I canare that occur. I want all of them.
Interested in purchasing some jars of the spread pb. How can i go about making an order
Can you order these online? I can not find where you order. Help! Would love to taste these, let me know please! Thank you
No. We used to purchase their PB online but that and the restaurant no longer exist. I can tell you, it was FANTASTIC! This makes me very sad. :(
Does this company spread still exist? I just saw it on the cooking channel but can’t find anything online.
No. It looks like the restaurant closed a couple of years ago. We used to purchase their PB online but that no longer exists either. I can tell you, it was FANTASTIC! This makes me very sad. :(
Can we buy?
how can i purchase your spreads i love peanut butter
i just sampled twenty of their flavors at their new popup shop in los angeles. AMAZING STUFF!
Where can I buy the peanut butter on line. Saw it on the cooking channel and would love to purchase, please post a site to purchase. Thank you
Unfortunately the store went out of business a few years ago :(
I saw a thing about them on Food Network as well. The owners seems like funny people and they showed how the peanut butter cup one was made. Looks amazing!
If I remember correctly I think Tyler Florence talked about this on an episode of The Best Thing I Ever Ate…
What a GREAT gift!!!
Okay Amanda, I just ordered 3 jars…. can’t wait to get them.. I’ll let ya know how I like it.. (like there’s any doubt – ha ha) I ordered the Butterscotch Toffee, Dark Chocolate Infused with Pretzels Peanut Spread and the Milk Chocolate Peanut Spread…. OH MY – I just can NOT wait… Thanks a bunch!!!!!
Hummm…I about live on peanut butter…mother hubbards cuboard is getting bear…this would be a wounderful change….
Seriously….rose salted basil peanut butter!!! I can’t stop thinking about how yummy that would be….maybe even as the base for a peanut sauce over pasta …. I am a new reader to your blog and you got me at peanut butter :)
These sound amazing! I had a serious love affair with peanut butter until I was recently diagnosed with a nut allergy. Seriously? Ugh! I hope those who can enjoy do!
oh my goodness, i WANT the white choc pretzel one and the cinnamon one!! they sound DElicious.
this would be a great giveaway for you blog hinthint;)
These are incredible looking.I am not sure which ones I would choose first! Thanks for the link to their store. When we are in San Diego we will definitely have to stop by there.
Wow! Who would have thought about all that variety in a peanut spread! And organic to boot! Yum, now I’m hungry again!
I wish I liked Peanut Butter :-(
I wish I could smell it thru my computer screen! They all look wonderful & even better since they use organic ingredients!
Amazing. Never been so hungry for peanut butter before…never would have thought about putting bacon bits in peanut butter, but it looks good too.
As I finish my nightly dessert of a spoonful of peanut butter with chocolate chips, I am drooling at this post!! So many peanut butters….so little time :) Good husband!
I Am nominating you for the Versatile bloggers award. Details are on my blog http://www.craftcrazedsupermum.com/?p=413 :)
Those look incredible!!! I want some!
It all looks so scruptious!!! Love anything peanut butter! It is beyond me how you don’t weigh 500 lbs with all the eatin goin on!
I bet you licked every spoon!
AHHHmazing. Holy cow, you have a good man. Just think of all the things you could bake after adding that deliciousness. I’m intrigued by the elvis pb…hmmmm.
Those SPREADS look delicious! They would go SO well with my new-found love for creating unbelievable PBJs: flavored creamed honey. Our local beekeeping place, Copoco’s (stands for Colorado Pollination Company), offers blueberry, raspberry, cinnamon and many more flavors ~ including CHOCOLATE ~ that smooth on like peanut butter, and make the creamiest, most mouth-watering PBJs ever! Even better, the honey NEVER crystalizes!
Here’s the link (ignore all the misspellings on the page ~ they do honey, not words!): http://copocoshoney.com/oscommerce2/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=21_23&products_id=30
I am sitting here looking at the many pictures of Spread. And just smiling to myself. I love that you take delight in such things.
Oh NO….this one could be deadly for me… I LOVE peanut butter… Guess I’d better go check out that website NOW!!
Oh. My. Yum!!! These will have to be tried! The funny thing is, I didn’t love peanut butter as a kid but the older I get, the more I love it!
Oh man my mouth is watering! You have no idea how bad I want to run over there and buy them out!! ha
I’m betting you won’t be sharing these with Howie & Miley!
Those look incredible! I will have to check out the website…
Reminds me of the flavors of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams in Columbus, Ohio. She is also good at pairing herbal with traditional ice cream flavors. I love her wild berry lavender and queen city cayenne. I think I would like to try the almond blends from Spread, but I have a daughter-in-law that would love the peanut butter blends and the immense variety. Thank you for the tip!
These all sound SO tasty! I am sure you are happy that the “kids” got their own peanut butter stash for Christmas as well – now you don’t have to worry about sharing this goodness with them!
Amanda, I don’t know how you stay soooooo thin! I manage to gain weight just by reading your blog and devouring the wonderful pictures!
Oh my gosh. Just made an account with Spread, The Restaurant, and ordered 5 for starters. I’m thinking I will do Valentine goodies for my kids from here. I’ll have to hide our order when it comes though as my husband will eat them all in one day! LOVE getting your emails with so many great ideas :)
Kind of makes me want to lick the screen!
Those are some really different flavors but they all sound fantastic!
I had no idea my favorite food group could come in so many different shades! (Yes, I believe pb is a class of it’s own, I absolutely love it!) Thanks for sharing. I think these would make great ‘thinking of you gifts’ for your fellow peanut butter lover in your life.

OMG – stop it – I can’t bear it! Those spreads are the most incredible things I have ever seen. How brilliant someone thought to make them. What a great gift!
Just placed my order. Can’t wait to try them all. They also have a puppy set for dogs that I just had to get my little mutts.
Wow! Those sound wonderful. I love peanut butter so much!
Oh. My. Yum. These look incredible! And what a nice gift from the hubby! I think the white chocolate pretzel peanut butter sounds amazing! I’ll have to remember to order that one! :)
Those look so good & would make a wonderful gift! I’m going to look them up!
I have followed your blog for a little while and have an e-mail subscription. I have a q1uestion for you regarding your e-mail feed. I searched through your blog tutorials but could find the answer to my question so thought I’d post it here. I totally understand if you can’t respond but just thought I’d try. :-) I have a blog that I keep mostly for my family that lives away. I have an e-mail subscription so my family can sign up and get updates when I post them. I’d love to have a link at the bottom of the e-mail they get that takes them to the comments section so they can easily leave comments. I notice you have it on your e-mail feed so I’m hoping you can give me some guidance on how to set it up. I am pretty clueless regarding blog design but I can follow directions pretty well! :-) Thanks for any help you can give me!
My boyfriend and I have an addiction to peanut butter and banana, too! Here is an absolute must have recipe for peanut butter banana bread.
I made this for Christmas this year and it didn’t last but 10 minutes.
Amanda, these are some very interesting peanut butter flavors. I’m not to sure about the peanut butter and basil. That one I may have to pass on. I have a question. I first came across your blog because of your scrapbook room mainly the paper storage. I notice you don’t blog at all about scrapbooking except for fonts. Do you still do any scrapbooking. Just curious. Thanks, Tina
I really want to sample all of these, too! The rose salted basil one is the most intriguing to me, though. I love anything with basil, but I can’t quite imagine what this would taste like…!
What an AWESOME post! Thanks for sharing….these peanut butter spreads are amazing, I am looking forward to giving them a try. Love your blog, my 14 year old daughter and I are big fans, I catch her reading it all the time.
I’ll bring you that Cookies and Cream one when I see you in Atlanta :)
Some of these sound entirely strange, but it’s definitely worth a stop-by to their store to do some investigating!
I’ve never seen this before! Now I wish I hadn’t because now I have to buy some ;)
Oh me oh my!! These look simply divine!! I can’t resist peanut butter and am already imaging a couple of these warmed up and drizzled over ice cream. Heaven!!
Wow, ordering some of these today!
These look amazing! I bet your sweet puppies were beside themselves smelling all these open jars!
For heaven’s sake! More temptations! I’m drooling on my iPad! ;)
lately i’ve been dreaming of a good peanut butter and jelly sandwich…i can’t even imagine how amazing it would be with the blond spread!
These would b great if blended with buttercream for an awesome cake frosting, or used for peanut butter ice cream….yum, yum!
Oh my gosh! I LOVE Spread! I have been ordering from them since 2007! I absolutely adore their stuff and am so thrilled someone else has found it! I am a nutbutter freak. I love the rose salted basil in stir fries and with veggies!
Wow I am amazed at all the flavors. My favorite would be Ode to Elvis, my husbands all of them. Paulette
This is crazy!! Who knew they had so many flavor of peanut butter… I didn’t! But I wish that had been my Christmas gift because I think testing all of them would be too much fun!!
Oh my! They all look and sound incredible!
