I am a huge fan of Jif peanut butter – creamy. So, when I saw Jif Whips on the grocery store shelf, I couldn't resist giving it a try. Which one do I prefer? You'll have to read to find out!
What's the Difference Between Jif and Jif Whips?
I could describer the differences between Jif Whips and regular Jif peanut butter, but a picture is worth a thousand words.
So, I took a few photos to give you a better idea.
The first thing I did was peel off the protective wrap and look into the tub.
This is how Jif Whips looks untouched:
You can see that it almost looks like a chunky peanut butter.
But, in fact, the rough surface is caused by air bubbles that were probably created by the whipping process.
How Does Jif Whips Taste Compared to Regular Jif?
So how does this new member of the family stack up to the original?
The proof is in the pudding, so I assembled a few things for a little taste test.
I love peanut butter on toast – so a few pieces of toast and we're all set!
Forgive my amateur photography skills.
If you like peanut butter, the real thing actually does look appetizing.
The point here is for you to see the airy-ness of the Whips vs the more dense texture of regular Jif peanut butter.
The difference is also obvious once I spread a portion of each type out on the toast.
Again, you can see the denser texture of regular Jif on the left and the airy quality of the Jif Whips on the right.
Drumroll please … the winner is the original Jif – at least for me.
I wish I could offer you a taste of each as well.
I found regular Jif to have a more robust peanutty taste than the Whips.
While the Jif Whips tastes good, I felt myself craving a bit of a stronger flavor.
However, Jif Whips has a definite advantage over the regular variety – especially if you happen to be counting calories.
Read this little blurb:
You read it right – this new product has 25 percent less calories and fat than the original version.
That is obviously due to the nature of whipped products.
Whenever you infuse air into a product you are essentially replacing some of the original volume with air.
Air has no calories and no fat.
At least, that is my theory.
Have You Tried It?
Have you tried Jif Whips? What did you think?
Let it be known that I have done this review entirely on my own accord.
The folks at Jif, up until now, have never heard of me.
I purchased the product at my local grocery store and thought it would be fun to tell you all about it.
