Peanut butter flavoured hot drink - new obsession or just plain wrong?

Winter has hit with an icy blast in our faces, and there are few things we want to do more when it’s this cold than settle down under a blanket with a mug of hot chocolate.

Or sometimes a cup of tea and a packet of biscuits. Or maybe a warm cup of peanut butter.

Wait... what?

Obviously, food hybrids pop up all the time – who could forget our recent adventures with the cronut? The newest niche foodie creation, however, has piqued our interest more than most.

Welcome, then, to the Peanut Hottie TM – offering the “tantalizing taste of peanut butter... now available for the first time as an instant hot drink.”  

The good people of the United Kingdom shelled out over £1million on peanut butter last year, according the Peanut Hottie TM ‘s creators, and it is this collective love that led them to develop their 83-calorie per cup, caffeine/additive free, vegetarian friendly “smooth, velvety indulgent instant hot drink” that is being billed as a “moreish alternative to hot chocolate, malted drinks, tea or coffee.”

It’s available at Sainsbury’s for the discount price of £1.49 from 27th November (in February it will rise to £2.99) and has been described as “stunning, like having a biscuit and a drink all in one” by those who have been lucky enough to sample its delights already. High praise indeed.

So, will the Peanut Hottie TM  become a staple of our cupboards – or is this all just storm in the nation’s teacups?

We think it has the potential to work. But we’re currently awaiting samples, so we’ll let you know.
