  • Nutty things we’ve seen in the news this week!

    Unsurprisingly, we’re all about nuts here at Peanut Hottie, so we’re going to show you a few stories that we thought were too nutty to keep to ourselves.

    Did you see this?! 164 skydivers break the word record for the largest vertical formation in Illinois . Whilst creating the flower formation, the skydivers hit speeds of up to 240mph. It took this nutty  team 13 attempts to beat the last world record set by 138 skydivers in 2012.

    A chip shop created a 500-calorie fried milkshake… dubbed ‘chipshakes’. The concoction is made by setting milkshakes in an ice cube tray, coating them in batter, then frying them into a crispy battered ball, which oozes milkshake. You’re able to buy the chipshakes from a Lancashire chippy, Mister Eaters in Preston. Hmmm we think we’ll stick to Peanut Hottie shakes in the future thanks!

    Daredevil Nik Wallenda completed his longest ever tightrope walk at the Wisconsin State Fair. This nutty beast was suspended more than 10 storeys above the Milwaukee Mile Speedway crossing the tightrope spanning 480m long. Nik is no stranger to stunts like this, he previously walked across Niagara Falls in 2012 and the Grand Canyon in 2013. Way to go Nik!

  • Nutty things we’ve seen in the news this week!

    Here at Peanut Hottie HQ we love a nutty story. This week, we’ve been on the look-out for some of the nuttiest things you guys have been up to this summer.

    Have you seen Damien ‘Flamien’ Walters? This stunt-nutter gets extra hot by putting on a ‘fire suit’, setting himself alight and going for a run through the forest! We think he could do with a nice Peanut Hottie milkshake to cool himself down…

    In another video that we witnessed (with out eyes shut very tightly), Damien is not on fire this time, but bungee jumping off the top of a crane! Now we know you’re probably thinking, ‘guys, that’s not that nutty!’ Well Damien is one step ahead of us and he’s not doing this all strapped up with harnesses, oh no. He’s just holding on to the end of the bungee cord with his hands, and letting go at the bottom! What a nutter! 

    We recommend that you do not try this at home. Instead, sit down with a glass / mug of Peanut Hottie, as our nutty goodness will give you the same thrilling feeling! #PeanutLove

  • Peanut Hottie – Product Recall

    ***UPDATED***

    Date: Friday 31st July 

    Product affected: Peanut Hottie Peanut Butter Flavour Hot Drink

    Batch number affected: B: 157384 and Expiry Date: 16/10/16

    Retailers affected: Morrisons and Tesco only

    A small batch of ‘Peanut Hottie’ Peanut Butter Flavour Hot Drink is being recalled because of a packaging error. Products labelled Peanut Butter Flavour Hot Drink actually contain Peanut Butter and Chocolate Flavour Hot Drink which contains soya – this is not included on the label. The product is therefore a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to soya.

    The recall only affects approximately 1,000 bottles of Peanut Hottie being sold in Tesco or Morrisons. It is believed that only a very small number of which have made their way on to supermarket shelves as most have been stopped at store depots.

    Lisa Gawthorne, Managing Director of Bravura Foods, the makers of Peanut Hottie, said: “We are extremely sorry for any inconvenience caused to customers who may have purchased product from the batch affected by incorrect labelling. The label does say that the product may contain traces of soya which we are hoping would have deterred anyone with a soya allergy from buying.

    “We are working with the Food Standards Agency to minimise impact and let allergy sufferers know about the error.

    “We believe that as few as 30 bottles of the affected product have made their way on to supermarket shelves. We’re currently working with Morrisons and Tesco to recall all products under the affected batch number.”

    If you have bought the affected product it can be returned to the store from where it was bought for a full refund. 

    Allergy UK, the leading national charity dedicated to supporting the estimated 21 million allergy sufferers in the UK, issued an allergy alert after being approached by Bravura Foods.

    In its statement, the charity thanked Bravura Foods for their ‘prompt and responsible attitude to this allergy alert and for covering all our mailing costs’.

    Anyone with concerns can contact Allergy UK via its Helpline; 01322 619898.

  • Fun Facts For You Peanut Butter Nutters!

    Whether you’re Team Crunchy (Woo!) or Team Smooth (Boo!), you know how good peanut butter is and how well it goes with pretty much anything. We’ve been going through quite a lot of recipe blog posts recently, so how about something different?
    Below are some lesser known facts about peanut butter that’ll have you dominating any peanut butter categories at your local pub quiz!

    It doesn’t just taste good, it is good for you

    Just like how the sugar in oranges aren’t the same as in candy floss, the fat in peanut butter isn’t the bad fat you should be avoiding. In fact, a lot of diets allow peanut butter – just ask Holly McCord who wrote The Peanut Butter Diet: The Amazing Plan That Lets You Lost Weight, Lower Your Cholesterol, Slash Your Risk of Heart Disease and Diabetes. Peanuts are even one of the best sources of magnesium, so put that in your diet and eat it!

    It’s so versatile!

    Hungry for some breakfast? (Remember people, it’s the most important meal of the day!) Then thwack some peanut butter onto toast. Is your belly letting you know it’s dinner time? Get some crispy-roasted Indonesian peanut wings cooking! Are you having the eternal “Should I have/skip dessert?!” debate? Well, if we said you could have peanut butter ice cream with concord grape coulis, that might help you decide.

    Smooth vs Crunchy

    Studies show that women and children like smooth peanut butter the most, whereas men like crunchy peanut butter the most. Remember to let us know what team you’re on over on out Twitter and Facebook pages!
    The Fear and Loathing of Peanut Butter

    Arachibutyrophobia – no, we didn’t just lean on our laptop by accident. Arachibutyrophobia is the fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of your mouth. That just sounds like saving a snack for later to us!

    Peanut Butter > Barack Obama?

    Presidents get a day, Easter gets a week but peanut butter gets a whole month! November is when you should be flaunting your love for all things peanut buttery. If that isn’t proof that peanut butter is the best thing since sliced bread, it’s definitely proof it’s the best thing spread on it!
    Make sure to tell us about any more peanut butter facts you might know over on our Instagram, Twitter and Facebook pages! But beware, the Instagram feed will make you very, very hungry.

  • Cool down with Peanut Hottie Poppin’ Ice-cream and Jammy Doughnuts!

    Peanut Hottie fans have been pining for some ice-cold recipes as we head into the summer months so we at Peanut Hottie HQ put our heads together to come up with a sweet solution.

    Let us present to you… (drum roll please!)…. Peanut Hottie Poppin’ Icecream!

    Armed with our Nutribullet, we got to work on our fabulous creation, using Butterkist Sweet Popcorn, vanilla ice-cream and, of course, Peanut Hottie.

    Have a look at how it is made by visiting our Facebook page

    First off, pop around five tablespoons of ice-cream in the blender, followed by two tablespoons of Peanut Hottie.

    Whizz this delicious concoction together for around 20 seconds and then add a generous helping of popcorn to the mix.  (We added an extra couple of tablespoons of ice-cream on top, just because *wink)

    Whizz for another 30 seconds and waalaa!  You have the Peanut Hottie Poppin’ Ice-cream!

    To make the dessert even more delicious (you thought impossible, right?) we added it to some jammy doughnuts, all in honour of National Doughnut Week.

    So what are you waiting for fans? Get your Hottie on and shake up some #PeanutLoveIMG_20150513_165558 (2)
