Peanutters

July 17, 2014 in

It’s a myth that elephants eat peanuts. To think that an animal weighing upwards of 13 tons would pursue a food that is, well... pea-sized, is more than just a little nutty. In fact, elephants have to spend 16 or more hours a day eating just to sustain their girth. Comparatively, humans have no such trouble sustaining their girth. That may be a large part of why we find tiny peanuts so hugely irresistible. Plus, we like the taste!

Trader Joe’s Peanutters Mini Peanut Butter Cookies are people-bite-sized cookies packed with pachyderm-sized flavor. Each little crispy round is made with peanut-flavored confectionary chips, dry roasted peanuts, and of course, peanut butter.

Scrape clean your jar of Cocoa Almond Spread using these miniature cookies as edible spoons. Bump your bowl of TJ’s Ultra Chocolate Ice Cream up a nutty notch with a crumble of Peanutters on top. How about a PB&J pie? Mix two cups of crushed Peanutters with 1 stick of melted butter and 1/3 cup of sugar. Using a pie-pan, form the mixture into a pie crust and freeze for 20 minutes before filling with your favorite fruit-filling. Of course, our Mini Peanut Butter Cookies are plenty good the old fashioned way: into your mouth, one at a time.

Just because elephants find peanuts too small to eat, doesn’t mean they don’t like the taste. If size were not an issue, we’d like to believe that elephants would change their tune and help make that charming myth a reality. Toward that end, we’re selling our Peanutters in elephant-bite-sized tubs (14-ounces) for just $3.99. Buy one tub for you and ten for your next trip to the zoo.
