On July 19th – and only on July 19th- the Kraft Peanut Butter Truck is rolling into Edmonton, at the Taste of Edmonton to be exact! This truck will feature 4 permanent items that the truck will have at each stop; a Peanut Butter Belgian waffle, Peanut Butter S’mores, PB with Pretzels and a delectable Asian Veggie Dip. I was lucky enough to receive samples of the fare that the food truck will feature from Gail Hall, who also loaded me up with more peanut butter than I could imagine! Thanks to Kraft for sending out the samples, my kids are in peanut butter heaven!
When Gail arrived, I was outside, chasing a dog, two muddy kids and add my adopted son from next door to the fray as well, trying to keep them off the newly laid sod, out of the mud patches that were still left and pack for a trip.
One could come to the conclusion that an array of pre-made snacks was very high on my needs list at that moment.
The kids dug right in like starving wolves.
The Peanut Buter S'mores were a hit, of course and I barely got a nibble!
The truck is also going to have two featured “consumer creations” that are created by residents in the city where the truck stops. In Edmonton these cococtions are a ‘Morning Boost’ celery stick topped with smooth light peanut butter and raisins, and a ‘Sweet Peanut Butter and Pickle Sandwich’ , that has a bit of honey added to create a lovely sweet and sour sandwich!
My son thought the pickle sandwich was the coolest thing ever and scarfed it up lickety split.
The Thai Peanut Dip was a great surprise, I personally have always eaten carrots with peanut butter – my husband still thinks I am weird- so this was right up my alley.
Want to know how easy this is? Here's the recipe:
1 tsp Kraft Asian Sesame Dressing, 2 tbsp Kraft whipped Peanut butter and a smidge of butter. Combine.
Voila! You have a great snack for kids and adults alike.
