I went into GNC today to kill some time. I came across this stuff which looked pretty interesting. It looks like natty pb with a few added treats. The ingredients are roasted peanuts, egg whites, wheat germ, flax seed, flax oil, honey, and salt. The nutritional info is as follows:

Serving side: 4 tbsp
Cals: 364
Fat: 20 g (4 g saturated, 7.5 g Omega-3, 2.25 g Omega 6)
Carbs: 14 g (6 g dietary fiber, 6 g sugar)
Protein: 32 g

This stuff looks pretty cool to me. Only problem is it's pretty damn expensive as well. Like 14 or 15 bones for a 16 oz jar. Opinions?

I've read about this stuff. If you have the money to blow sure get it. If you don't then don't. I mean there are cheaper alternatives that are just as good if not better.

Yeah I feel ya, I'm not getting a boner over it or anything, I just haven't seen something like this before. Looked interesting. Anyway, maybe some of our weller-offer WBB'ers can incorporate it.

Looks good except for the honey. I guess that's just in there for taste as I don't see why else it would be included.

A bit of honey ain't gonna kill you. Anyone know how it tastes? :)

I read somewhere that it tasted really really good.

Make your own if you know what's in it. I remember some posts long ago, and the consensus that it's WAY too expensive for what it is.

honey is a source of vitamins minerals and phytonutrients
