I can’t even begin to explain my love for peanut butter toast crunch cereal. It’s not even a stretch to tell you it was one of the happiest days EVER, when I saw that PBTC was back on shelves (yes, us Peanut Butter Toast Crunch fanatics are allowed to abbreviate for easier discussion). I was taking pictures of it, obsessively throwing multiple boxes of it in our cart, and even texting my family about its return. Yep, I know, sounds like another normal night during a very random Wal-mart shopping trip.
Wait Mrs. Big Flavors, did you just say that Peanut Butter Toast Crunch is making it’s return? Weird, because in very bold letters on the top of the box it very clearly states “NEW!”. Well, I’ll be the first to tell you that those people at General Mills are telling a big, fat fib because this is not the first time PBTC has been on the market. I believe it made its debut somewhere around 2004 and I quickly turned into a PBTC fiend. You already know how I practically lived on S’mores Bars in college, but since those were only available on Thursdays, it was PBTC for every other day of my week.
No milk required! Just a serving or two into a plastic baggie, and you have the perfect breakfast on the go or quick snack between classes or meals. I mean it may not be as healthy of a choice as that 1/4 cup of almonds all of the health mags suggest you eat when you’re hungry, but hey, PBTC is much more filling and curbs any salty, sweet, or carb craving. My absolute favorite part is all of that peanut butter dust that coats your fingers while your munching away. Mmmm, nothing like a little peanut butter dust to brighten your day!
Some days, though, I just need a little more sugar! That’s where these super simple PTBC treats come in handy. In just 10 minutes, with no baking required, you have the perfect sugary treat loaded with peanut butter, fluff, chocolate, and even more peanut butter. What would be better!? But, be careful, these treats are extremely addicting. I know that every time I walk past the pan of these treats, I’m ripping off a little piece and stuffing it into my mouth. I just can’t help it! They’re like my all-time favorite S’mores Bars, but even better because they’re loaded with peanut butter. Obviously.
So just stop whatever you’re doing right now. I mean it, Stop. Go out and get yourself a box of the infamous PBTC cereal and get mixing. You’re just 10 minutes away from a satisfying peanut butter, chocolate, marshmallow treat. Yuuuumm.
