Forgive Me Coach, For I have Sinned...

I feel compelled to warn y'all about a sinful product that just landed on my G'wich Whole Food shelf...

This Saratoga Peanut Butter Company is a temptation to every stinkin' calorie burned during my pre-dawn 4000 meter swims...

Sure, I'd have more of a fighting chance if I only tangled with their Plain Jane Creamy...


Organic Creamy...

Or plain ole Almighty Almond Butter for my Green Monster breakfast smoothie...

But, how can that angel on my shoulder do battle against a post Masters/Crossfit ravenous devil whose Achilles has always been the peanut butter and banana combo? 

And, this Maple number just screams Pandora's Box...

Now, the White...

And Dark Chocolate need to kept behind the register alongside other sinful items such as cigarettes, condoms and booze and require proof of a completed morning workout for purchase...

While thee (insert sign of the cross) peanut butter, dark chocolate and dried cherry Trifecta should come with a mandatory penance of 10 Hail Mary's and 1000 squats...

I mean, look...I thought I was taking the safe, heart healthy route with Adirondack's cranberries, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, honey an juuust a hint of cinnamon til the big spoon came out...  

I'd be on my knees praying for forgiveness right this very moment if I didn't think my AG jeans would split...

Kindness of my sister Genny for sending me a video of goblet squats over the weekend as I'm currently starring down the barrel of about an entire episode of Alaska: The Last Frontier worth after this morning's Saratoga Peanut Butter Company indiscretion...XXOO


  1. super stoked that i am not the only nutty ocd person who would get on their knees over an almighty jar of this sort of supreme buttah.
    look at the trouble you have caused now. oh mama. call me cray cray.
    promise me next time you are in saratoga you will have dinner at hattie's fried chicken.

  2. Fantastic post.....as always! Thank you - SCBA, K'port

  3. Welcome back! My fave PB that WF sells is Better'n Peanut Butter with 85% less fat - but really good. Love reading your blog. Altho I live in Texas now, I went to high school at Sacred Heart on King St.

  4. The crunchy chocolate is amazing on crepes!!!

  5. Oh my - yumm! Unfortunately, my darling granddaughter is unable to indulge - peanut allergy - but that doesn't mean I can't.

    (Adding to WF shopping list as we speak)!

  6. Oh I love Justin's Chocolate Nut Butters. Just had some right now:). So I'm with you, from the West Coast.

  7. Looks yummy, can't wait to check it out. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Good Grief! I don't even really like peanut butter but that looks really good! Let us know if you try the banana.

  9. And all along I thought there were only two types of peanut butter: smooth and chunky. How wrong I was.

  10. I LOVE peanut butter...this is very dangerous!!

  11. I cannot buy this or there will be a chunky style Patsy.......

  12. I don't know how I originally stumbled across your blog but as a lover of all things preppy it was always one of my faves, so needless to say, I am so happy to see that you are posting again!! Peanut butter is definitely a weakness of mine so I will be looking for this on my next shopping trip (and then locking it away so I do not over indulge)

  13. Oh I have a dreadful problem with nut butters, once that jar is unscrewed it starts to burn a hole in my head until it's empty.

  14. I live in Saratoga and I buy this PB at our farmer's market every other Saturday, so I can attest for it's goodness! I'm glad to see the brand is expanding in more states too! Love your blog and hope you'll come to Saratoga for the races in the summer!

  15. I miss your blog, Alice.

    Hope you are thriving.


  16. Merci for the kind sentiment Anon. Babe and the ti-babes are doing great and I'm obsessively counting down the months til summer...XXOO

  17. I, too, miss your blog. I still check it daily with hopes that you will have something other than this last peanut butter bit. I'm glad to know you are all doing great! Your wit and wisdom was always something that I could count upon when reading your site. And you had the best shopping ideas ever! Would you ever consider coming back? Pretty please? xo

  18. My head is expanding by the minute :)
    And, I may pop in shortly...XXOO

  19. I miss your blog as well! I check in every so often to see if you have posted something. I loved your shopping and cooking tips. Hope you are well.
