PB Loco for me

So I got my PB Loco and will be distributing it in my van this coming wed. I need to bring some crackers or something so everyone can taste eachother's. We have 3 diff ones to try. white choc, dark choc, and raspberry dark choc. I've only tried the dark choc one so the other's will be a new experience.

Jess already posted about this but I'm going to too. I can't help it if I've been too busy to post about it. So we got to Minnesota at 5:30 AM and woke Javvy up about 6:00 or so to let us in since our hotel checkin wasn't till 3:00. We hung out for a while then took a nap for a couple of hours. We went back to the hotel and took another nap for a couple hours. Yes we were tired, so what? We finally felt rested enough and were ready to go out and do something. Javvy was too busy getting ready for the BBQ so we got a hold of Jess and Ryan to see if they wanted to get together for dinner or something. We decided to go to The Mall of America since we were going to go there at some point while we were there anyway to go to PB Loco. We decided to have dinner first and went to Bubba Gumps, which was pretty good. Nathan, Jess's brother joined us as well. After dinner it was off to PB Loco to see what I could get. The Dark Choc is what most everyone in the VP wants. I was going to try to get a case for a discount but they said they don't do that. So I grab a few... white choc, rasp dark choc, dark choc... wait where's the dark choc? there's shelves and shelves of pb there's got to be some dark choc. one jar! one jar is all I found! how can that be? I was worried. I asked the clerk if there was anymore. She looked doubtful but said she would check. She brought out about 6 more jars that she had found in the back and I told her I'd take them all. Jess bought one too. Whew that should be enough to last me a little while.

I actually emailed them weeks before the trip to see if they sold by the case and gave any discounts. No one ever responded.. until today! The day after I get back from the trip... here's what they said:

Hi Paula,

I'm sorry that we didn't get back to you in a more timely manner. Obviously
you've already come and gone, but for what it's worth, we don't usually
offer a discount unless a person is ordering at least 5 cases. We're so
glad you're hooked, though, and hope that you were able to pick up a few
jars on your visit here. If you have a SuperTarget near you, you can find
our Jungle Banana and our Raspberry Dark Chocolate varieties there for

I hope that helps. Thanks again for being a valued P.B.Loco customer!

PB Cheers,

Gee thanks, at least they wrote back... Now I gotta find a Super Target!


  1. Poo I dont think we have any Super Targets here.

  2. Yet another reason why you should visit us regularly! :)

  3. You might be able to accumulate a 5-case order by co-oping. I do it often for expensive-butt soaping supplies. It's a great way to get something you usually can't afford or have to buy huge amounts of in order to get a good price. I can give you details if you want.

  4. Yeah! What Jesster said! :D

  5. WOW, it is a good thing I picked up what I needed on Thursday - or there would have been none for me!

    I suspect after the folks have become totally addicted to the PB stuff, we can find enough folks to go in on 5 cases..... You can add my name to the list!
