Matt Mulvihill | Pacific Beach Peanut Butter

Made with only the best tasting ingredients, Matt's Pacific Beach Peanut Butter creates organic peanut butters and flavored peanut butter spreads in the yummiest flavors. The entire product line is gluten-free. Full of protein and minerals with fewer calories than most other peanut and almond butters. Not smooth, not crunchy - the brand coined the term "smunchy" - you actually taste the fine-textured particles of real peanuts.
